Jonathan Oosting The Detroit News Published 4:39 PM EDT Mar 18, 2019 Auburn Hills — Democratic presidential hopeful Kirsten Gillibrand on Monday outlined government programs she argues would benefit Michigan residents and accused President Donald Trump of “spewing hate and racism” that has cost the United States its moral standing in the world. Trump “did not create hate and racism and anti-Semitism, but what he has done is pour fuel on a fire that is raging more than I’ve ever seen in my lifetime,” the New York U.S. senator said during an MSNBC town hall taping at the Rochester Mills Production Brewery and Taproom in Auburn Hills. “We are at our best when we love one another.” Gillibrand made her first campaign stop in Michigan the same day as fellow 2020 Democratic hopeful Beto O’Rourke of Texas, who stopped in Center Line, Ferndale and Detroit on Monday morning during his first swing through the state.

We’re not 100 percent sure what “boofing” is, despite the fact that this very issue was discussed in a hearing of the United States Senate Judiciary Committee. All we know for certain about boofing is that it is distasteful and stupid. As was 2018. In spades. What made this year so awful? We could list many factors, including natural disasters, man-made atrocities, the utter depravity of our national political discourse, and the loss of Aretha Franklin. Instead, we’ll cite one event that, while minor, epitomizes 2018: the debut of Dr. Pimple Popper. This is a cable-TV reality show featuring high-definition slo-mo close-up videos of a California dermatologist performing seriously disgusting procedures on individuals with zits the size of mature cantaloupes.
