    Holiday Markets are nice.
    But I already know what I want for Christmas, as follows.
    Dear Santa:
    I would like you do us a favor though,
    and bring us a NEW & HONEST President for Christmas;
    someone who does not lie & cheat & bribe & extort;
    someone who can read and respects the Rule of Law;
    someone who loves the Constitution instead of being a Conman; someone who does not use public office for private gain;
    someone who loves immigrants more than Putin & our sworn enemies;
    someone who does more than golf all day and watch Fox Fake News; and finally, someone who looks better in tennis shorts than Trump.
    Is that too much to ask, dear Santa?
    P.s.
    A Democratic Senate would also be greatly appreciated.
    P.p.s.
    Forget the part about the tennis shorts
    – I’ll take Bernie in tennis shorts any day.
