It seems most everyone is in agreement that 2018 was all around just a bad year (it feels like it’s been like that for the past two years, to be honest). While everyone had hoped that the orange tinted Kremlin kowtower residing in the White House would finally get what’s coming to him, nothing of the sort happened and instead the disgraceful autocrat adorer was allowed to continue his demented war on truth, decency and morality. Way to leave us with blue balls, Robert Mueller!
Ariana Grande scores her fifth No. 1 on the countdown as “No Tears Left To Cry” moves into the penthouse this week, pushing Shawn Mendes’s “In My Blood” to No. 3.
