Und passend zu diesem US-Präsident gewordenen Albtraum hatte ich heute einen solchen - mit Trump in der "Hauptrolle"! Der Inhalt: Ich bin als Hilfskraft in deren "Presseabteilung" eingestellt, bekomme dort aber absolut nichts zu tun. Außerdem sind alle Mitarbeiter angehalten, sich sofort aus dem Raum zu entfernen, sobald Trump diesen betritt, mit Ausnahme derjenigen, die er zu sprechen wünscht (und das sind sehr beliebig immer jene, denen er am jeweiligen Tag und nach Tageslaune günstig gesonnen ist). In der übrigen Zeit haben sich alle Mitarbeiter auf Abruf ständig in der Nähe und verfügbar zu halten, kaum einer hat klare Aufgaben oder gar Briefings darüber. Bestimmte Räumlichkeiten dürfen keinesfalls betreten werden, auch wenn diese leer sind oder keinerlei Funktion haben.

And its price could skyrocket from $10 for 120 pills, to as much as $40,000 for a year’s supply.
