I’m not going to pretend I suddenly like Donald Trump. But when he does something good, I can be magnanimous enough to acknowledge it. When he provides a service to mankind, he deserves my thanks.

Thank you, Donald Trump!

Rebecca Savransky, The Hill:

The band U2 is delaying the release of its new album in the aftermath of the unexpected victory of President-elect Donald Trump…

The band’s guitarist, The Edge, told Rolling Stone the album was “pretty much complete,” and then the election happened and “suddenly the world changed.”

“We just went, ‘Hold on a second — we’ve got to give ourselves a moment to think about this record and about how it relates to what’s going on in the world,'” the guitarist said.

This is a big step toward Making Music Great Again. It should put Trump in line for a Nobel Peace Prize.

It must be nice to have a job where you can take time off to recover from an election in a country where you don’t even live. But take all the time you need, boys. I think we’ll get by in the meantime, considering you literally gave your last album away for free and nobody wanted it anyway.

By the way, Rolling Stone just lost a $3 million lawsuit for publishing fake news about a gang-rape at the University of Virginia. I’m not sure why U2 is even talking to them. How many other rape-hoaxers do they associate with?

P.S. In other ’80s music news, Madonna says of the 2016 election: “It’s like being dumped by a lover and also being stuck in a nightmare.” I guess that would make Hillary her lover? Every day there are new reasons to be glad she lost.
