“One year into the Donald Trump administration, Oklahomans generally seem happy with the results, even if they don’t always appreciate the president’s style.”

Test text:

“‘I thought he would really be good for the economy, and I feel like he’s got that off to a good start,’ said Sage Smith of Claremore, who was interviewed near downtown Tulsa last week. ‘A lot of people feel like his antics on Twitter go a little too far,’ Smith said. ‘It doesn’t bother me that much. But, being president, he probably shouldn’t do some of that.'”

The view from Oklahoma, recounted in “‘He’s done some amazing things’: One year into his presidency, Trump remains a favorite in Oklahoma” (Tulsa World).

Why is Althouse reading Tulsa World? Is she traveling? No, I stumbled into Oklahoma as a result of the images searches done for the previous post, which got me to “Table Talk: Tulsa’s ‘Rosie the Riveter’ to speak at VFW brunch” (“The 94-year-old [Marina] Metevelis was 16 when Pearl Harbor was bombed in 1941. She applied for a job at the Wichita (Kansas) aircraft plant where B-17 Flying Fortresses were manufactured, and she became a riveter her senior year in high school”).

That’s from October 2016, back when TV news-talk-show people were telling us the election was over, and Hillary had won…

Confession: I rewatch videos like that frequently.

AND: Michael Moore’s “5 Reasons Why Trump Will Win” was the most prescient thing anyone had to say before the election. I think people thought he was just kidding and trying to be provocative to get attention.
