I just want you to breathe in the amazing sweetness of Austin Perine.

This is the America I want to have. One in which we all aim to be superheroes by taking care of others. Not celebrating hatred and ignorance.

I just want you to remember Austin as you watch the Sunday shows, which will be, judging from a certain consistency of booking, will be focusing on something no one should have to contemplate: Donald Trump's sex life.

There are so many things that I find heinous about the Trump administration. The corruption, the ignorance, the fact that so many decisions appear to be based on nothing more than tweaking liberals. It will be the supreme irony if it's his inability to keep it in his shorts that takes down his presidency.
