Of course, some Democrats are saying that he should resign over his sexual offenses, but that’s not going to happen. They have absolutely zero influence on him.

It was not a bad day of teaching, although it started off with an hour of screaming at the second graders. That class is getting worse instead of better. I had an extremely simple lesson planned. Give me the _____. It’s a key phrase, and once you learn it, you can build thousands of English sentences just by filling in the blank. It was not a great success.
