Watched President Trump on Governors: ‘I Want Them to Be More Appreciative’ by CSpan from C-SPAN.org

President Trump talks about working with governors and says some governors are cooperating, but others need to do more and be more appreciative of the federal government’s response. ‘I say Mike,…

Watched The Handmaid’s Tale (TV Series 2017– ) from IMDb

Created by Bruce Miller. With Elisabeth Moss, Max Minghella, Yvonne Strahovski, Joseph Fiennes. Set in a dystopian future, a woman is forced to live as a concubine under a fundamentalist theocratic dictatorship.

Adding my first “Watch” post. I’m currently watching Season Two, Episode 7 of this.
