I’m in America so I don’t know what rumors are happening outside of the US but I imagine they’re probably all true. For example, the streets are all paved in cheese.

We are not our president. No matter who the president is, we are not 100% happy with the guy. It’s true that he won the election, but no president gets a 100% Approval rating once in office
