Might seem like a weird and ignorant thing to say, but I’ve been thinking this a lot lately. Really until became president I never followed current events all that much, and especially not to the extent I did during this past presidential campaign. I guess also until six or so years ago I didn’t have a real job so current events and the economy didn’t affect my world much. It’s almost like “the news” was something totally separate from my life going on somewhere else in the world. But talking to friends about how their companies (of all different types) are having trouble is a hard dose of reality. It’s like “Wow, things really ARE bad in the country now.”
