No, I'm not going to make a comment about Trump, I'm going to make a comment about mosquitoes, which are much less bothersome. Unlike in your neck of the woods, it is currently the height of mosquito season at my place. Happens every year, and I'm at a loss to explain it. Not outdoors, of course, but in my house. I typically find one flying around every night and have to chase it down. I've got no idea where they're coming from. They seem to be too dopey to do much biting, but they are unquestionably mosquitoes.

This is interesting. Have you been bitten? Could it be possible these mosquitoes are malarial? Where might you have standing water in your home?

No bites as far as I know (during the time when I've been seeing these hibernal mosquitoes). I haven't been able to think of any standing water that would serve as a breeding spot, either. It's baffling.

We have an occasional winter skeeter, no water here either.

Swampfox: bites. Are you positive they are mosquitoes, and maybe not really tiny butterflies? Or perhaps rather tiny and differently colored luna moths?

I believe if you keep looking and thinking about where they are coming from, you will end up figuring it out. Once you've figured that out, then you can move on to the next item on the list, which would be identifying what alien life form Trump represents.

Or what hidden pool of stagnant, fetid water he arose from.
