Last year you supported WTF Just Happened Today. Not only does that make you a remarkable human, but it makes you part of the 1% of people who made this project possible.

Because of you, I was able to chronicle the Trump administration's daily shock and awe. We survived alternative facts, the travel ban, rocket man, and covfefe, but nevertheless, we persisted. What will we face in 2018?
