Donald Trump masks being prepared for distribution at Ogawa Studios, north of Tokyo

This is a photograph taken in a Japanese manufacturing plant that has had trouble keeping up with orders for their $22.40 Donald Trump mask. It is also a perfect visual manifestation of my waking thoughts this past week.

Where my mom works, they have to give x-amount of money to charity to buy the privilege to wear jeans. From a male perspective, I don't get it. Chinos are far and away the more comfortable pant. Look at Lame Duck Barry's timeless trousers and tell me you'd rather wear denim.

Illicit recovered firearms are set ablaze in Nairobi, Kenya

One of these photo descriptions is true. Can you guess which one?
a) In the Ngong Hills near Nairobi, Kenya, some 5250 illicit firearms recovered during various security operations are destroyed by flame.

Since Donald Trump won the election, protests have sprung up in every major American city. Cynics have called the protestors "anarchists" and paid activists of "globalist George Soros."
