Record your to-do list, or your won’t-do list. Jot down your thoughts, note your lack of ideas. Keep track of your dreams and collect your nightmares. On January 22, two days into the Trump presidency, White House senior advisor Kellyanne Conway appeared on Meet the Press and claimed that the administration was offering “alternative facts” to assertions about the crowd size at Trump’s inauguration. Conway’s remarks struck a chord, or rather a dissonant note, with viewers, who reacted with scathing commentary and biting memes. After a tumultuous few weeks of politics, this lined journal says “Always remember: the facts are whatever you want them to be.” Here is one fact: All royalties from the sale of this journal will be donated to ProPublica, an independent, nonprofit newsroom that produces investigative journalism in the public interest.
