If you are totally ready to move on from Donald Trump, you're not alone. According to a report last April from the Wason Center National Survey of 2020 Voters, "President Trump will be the least popular president to run for reelection in the history of polling."

Yes, you read that right, "history of polling."


According to Gallup, his approval rating hasn't really changed since that report. As of October 31, only 41% of Americans approve of the job Trump is doing.

A recent report in Bloomberg found that Trump ranks 10th of 11 polling-era presidents after 1,027 days in office, and his disapproval number is now up to 54.6%.

So people are already fantasizing about a magical day in January 2021 and they wake up to a new president being sworn into office.

No more crazy 6 am Twitter rants. No more president calling every news report he doesn't like "fake." No more glad-handing with ruthless autocrats. No more bullying and schoolyard nicknames for his political opponents.

Hopefully it's a kinder person who instills a feeling of warmth and pride to be an American instead of a sense of dread and chaos.

Thousands of Twitter users are sounding off who about they type of person they'd like to see in office under #IHopeOurNextPresident. Most of them, it seems, just want a decent human that can handle the job and isn't embarrassing.

Some hope our next president is a functional human being.



Some hope out next president is a decent human being.



A lot of people hope our next president is female.



Some hope it's Mark Del Figgalo. Whoever the hell that is.



Some hope our next president is Democrat Andrew Yang.



Others hope it's "Uncle" Joe Biden.



Some hope the next president isn't a major creep.



Some just hope the next president isn't a racist.



Some just hope it isn't Donald Trump.

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

Childbirth is the number one reason American women visit the hospital, and it ain't cheap. In fact, it's getting more and more expensive. A new study published in Health Affairs found that the cost of having a baby with employer-sponsored health insurance increased by almost 50% in the past seven years.

The study evaluated "trends in cost-sharing for maternity care for women with employer-based health insurance plans, before and after the Affordable Care Act," which was signed into law in 2010. The study looked at over 657,061 women enrolled in large employer-sponsored health insurance plans who delivered babies between 2008 and 2015, as these plans tend to cover more than plans purchased by small businesses or individuals.

A meteorite crashed into Earth nearly 800,000 years ago. The meteor was 1.2 miles wide, and the impact was so big, it covered 10% of the planet with debris. However, scientists haven't been able to find the impact site for over a century. That is, until now. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal believes the crash site has been located.

Tektites, which are essentially rocks that have been liquefied from the heat of the impact and then cooled to form glass, help scientists spot the original impact site of a meteor. Upon impact, melted material is thrown into the atmosphere, then falls back to the ground. Even if the original crater has disappeared due to erosion or is hidden by a shift in tectonic plates, tektites give the spot away. Tektites between 750,000 to 35.5 million years old have been found in every continent except Antarctica.
