    I just love seeing this First Family together. And that song, who made it and the name of it is? Everyday I’m becoming more and more a fan of Jerry Seinfeld.

    Dump the Trump
    The “donald” has become a ugly punch line for comedians, as it should be.

    Now to re-watch the beautiful video of our First Couple.

    Now I will send a email to the Washington Post who have invited Donald Trump as their guest to the WHCD Saturday night, and tell them to be sure to ask that lying racists Trump about dodging the Vietnam draft.

    Morning everyone, the sun is out and it is a bright cheerful day.

    I stayed up and watched the Royal wedding and I’m glad I did. It was so beautiful. Kate’s gown was designed by the woman who kept Alexander McQueen’s line going. I can’t think of her name. It was brought up that Michelle Obama recently wore a McGueen creation at the State Dinner.(remember all the comments after that for her not choosing an American designer and Michelle looked gorgeous in it).

    She went for a simple elegant art creation reminiscent of Grace Kelly’s wedding gown. She chose a very simple crown that Queen Elizabeth II’s father gave her when she was 16. I don’t know how many crowns the queeen has in the vault but there are many.

    And now I am ready for Obama’s trips.

        Best wishes to Kate and William, but I didn’t watch the wedding. I wasn’t that interested in watching it.
