Trump’s nonsense since Helsinki has revealed an obvious truth. Vince McMahon is running the administration, and I know what’s coming next. Bah Gawd!
Well, the world has not yet blown up. I’m disappointed too. Overnight, Trump took back what he said, Australia added inches to its assumption and Cher and Meryl kissed. Cool.
Monday morning. Jesus. Overnight, Vladimir Putin warned the United States, Beyonce brought back 2006, and the Comm Games returned our dessert.
The poisoning of ex-spy Sergey Skripal unearthed something ancient. The kind of one-sided media of assumption we saw in the first cold war. Here we go again.
While you were resting those peepers, Lindsay Lohan looked to revive her career, Vladimir Putin stepped ever closer to the big day, and one college student chose lame 90’s nostalgia over everything else.
Monday. Why. While you were unconscious the world span on, stepping us closer to nuclear crisis, Vlad moving out of Donald’s house and a lazy tie in of a brilliant TV show.

Happy 2017! Just a quick reminder, 2016 wasn’t that far away, and despite the ‘new year, new me’ euphoria, here’s a heavy grain of salt to add to your hangover. Sorry.
Merry Christmas to you and yours. For those looking for a dash of reality on the grandest day of all, here’s what happened in the week that was.

The Panama Papers. A historic leak. But beyond the headlines, the issue gets murky. So we’ve cut through the rhetoric.
Michael Burrill’s Current Affairs Wrap faces ever changing Auspol beyond Libspill, Corbyn’s election in the UK and Vlad’s fingers on Syria.
As the struggle for Kobane on the Syrian/Turkey border rages, with potential fearful consequences for the Kurds who live there, Michael Burrill fears we are playing into the hands of IS…
Alexandra Connor takes a “gamble” that the “Game of Thrones” played out to get the Winter Olympics to Sochi will leave in its wake both winners and losers.
