I (almost) never get political here, or anywhere else for that matter. But these past two years I have learned more about US politics than I ever thought possible. I follow developments daily, more so than I do with Spanish politics. And it’s all because of You Know Who. Comedian John Mulaney put it best when he said Trump in the White House is like having a Horse in a Hospital (you can see the full brilliant version on his Netflix special The Comeback Kid)…

But at least this morning the news from the USA is optimistic for the first time since Trump took office. Sure, there were some disappointments, and much justified anger and frustration about obvious voter suppression by the GOP. But the blue wave did happen, at least for the House of Congress which now holds 219 Democratic seats over 193 Republican.

Well done America. Keep fighting! The rest of us need you.
