So do you ever have those moments where something suddenly makes sense and you feel like you’ve got the wind knocked out of you because it’s just so obvious? Like when you realized that the Grammys are called that because the statue is a gramophone or that slang is literally slang for shortened language?

He looks very…presidential. According to Google, he’s 73 years old, just three years senior to his daughter’s husband. I wonder if he was around a lot when Melania were growing up? What’s that saying about how women marry their fathers…?
I’m gonna be sick. Seriously, psychological science says we’re drawn to partners just like our parents. An expert quote from a CNN article on the phenomenon:
