Re: Susan Estrich

Susan Estrich wrote an op-ed about how she misses the Donald Trump — not as a president, but as a distraction. "The Trump show is over. Any day now, he’ll be hacking hair dye on late-night TV," she wrote. "In the meantime, the rest of us, deprived of our daily distraction, are left to face the reality of a new world we don’t quite understand, and of the old problems we never did solve." The op-ed also appeared in Standard-Speaker, ThyBlackMan, and the Daily Herald.
