Donald Trump, clad in coveralls and holding a pitchfork, joined Will & Grace‘s Megan Mullaly on stage at the 2005 Emmys to do a rendition of the Green Acres theme song. Farm livin’ probably isn’t the life for Trump—even though he told Iowa voters, following his second place primary finish, that he loved their state so much he was considering buying a farm there. Watch Trump’s (weirdly decent) performance.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
