I hear you Emerald. Satire is dying at the end of DJT’s fake news grapevine.

When I feel disheartened I read this wonderful quote from LBJ that he spoke when honoring the Smothers Brothers for their satirical humor:

“It is part of the price of leadership of this great and free nation to be the target of clever satirists. You have given the gift of laughter to our people. May we never grow so somber or self-important that we fail to appreciate the humor in our lives.” — President Lyndon Johnson
