Hanging from the side of an iceberg by their hind claws, a polar bear and her cub search for penguins feeding in the frigid Arctic waters below.

Classic polar bear prank, akin to a snipe hunt. “Look, son. If you even think you see one, go for it, because OMG LOOK THERE’S ONE RIGHT NOW!”

Congratulations to President Trump.

It will take years to clean up the national and global messes created and promulgated by his predecessor and the Democrat Party. May his decisions be wise, the results productive, and may we become a more prosperous nation for all. God Bless America.
