Impeached Oval Office squatter Donald Trump apparently had his chief of staff Mark Meadows, formerly the leader of the maniacs in the Freedom Caucus, blow up the negotiations with Democratic leaders to save the nation from coronavirus so Trump could sweep in with «executive orders» to save the day. Except that three out of four of the orders are actually memorandums, and none of them are actually constitutionally within his power to do. So, yeah, illegal.

They’d like to get together.» They haven't called. He tweeted it again on Monday, «So now Schumer and Pelosi want to meet to make a deal. Amazing how it all works, isn’t it.» But it's still not true.

From a couple of peels mid-waltz to another fruit flattened into a puddle, the ceramic-and-resin artworks are evocative and humorous. Kasatani shares with Colossal that while the banana is a recurring motif, its purpose is light-hearted and is a form of idiosyncratic expression.
