I have recently begun writing small pieces for Blasting News on day to day news and I will be sharing links and brief excerpts here! It won’t impact my use of this space which is reserved for longer pieces as well as original creative writing. But you should still check this stuff out!

From the piece:

Trump compares himself to Andrew Jackson because “they said” he was like Andrew Jackson. To Trump, if he and Andrew Jackson are alike, Andrew Jackson must be well versed in the Art of the Deal. Trump suggests that if Jackson were around that he would have negotiated his way out of the Civil War. In Trump’s mind this must be true because he believes that he could have negotiated some way out of the Civil War (whether Trump honestly believes this in his heart of hearts is between himself and his lonesome bathrobe though tangible evidence Trump is a deal maker in the White House is scant).
