@nytimes does major FAKE NEWS China story saying “Mr.Xi has not spoken to Mr. Trump since Nov.14.” We spoke at length yesterday!” – Donald J. Trump tweet 2-10-17
The only thing missing from our President’s newest tweet this morning is; I’m better than you, na-na, na-na, boo-boo, stick your head in doo-doo.
I wake every morning and think, today is the day that our President begins to act like a President rather than an eight year old. And every morning, for the last three weeks, I have been disappointed. In an Op-Ed piece for The New York Times, I know FAKE NEWS, Andrew Rosenthal writes; Any parent who has had children in middle school is familiar with their teenage excuses. First, they complain that the teachers are mean and assign too much homework, then that the reading is boring, and then when all else fails, they give you that aggrieved look and whine, “It’s tooooo haaaaard.”
The point is that whatever happens, it’s someone else’s fault.
It’s annoying when it comes from a 13-year-old. When it comes from the president of the United States and his team, it’s downright terrifying.
Have you ever felt like you were being held hostage? On the one hand we have President Trump, a remarkable creature, just ask him, who, in his first three weeks, has honestly accomplished nothing other than creating turmoil and conflict. In his mind he is “shaking it up”. But at what point do you begin to bake the cake and quit stirring the pot? There has to be a plan, an agenda or even, and here’s a crazy idea, a goal. So far all we have heard are taglines suitable for t-shirts or red baseball caps.
Polls conclude, as you would suspect, that his devoted followers think he is doing a great job and would be moving the nation forward if the liberals, people, press, small animals, would get off us back and let his brilliance shine. Others, me included, are terrified about what he will do, or say next. Then there are those who don’t know what to think. They voted for him because he had a big, shiny R next to his name and they were confident that he would surround himself with smart people who would think for themselves, hasn’t happened, and that he would begin acting more Presidential once he got into office, still waiting.
So what’s the other hand? There is a movement to find some juicy and tantalizing piece of dirt on our President so that there might be some consideration to have him impeached. Now honestly this line of reasoning plays right into the hands of his deplorables. It justifies every reason they elected him. But wait, if The Donald isn’t on the job (and there are some that believe it is actually Steve Bannon sitting behind the big desk) then who would become number forty-six? Cue the spooky music, Mike Pence.
Yup, being held hostage, “damned if you do and damned if you don’t”. I will freely admit that for someone like me interested in this “political shit” this is very entertaining. But I really don’t want to be entertained I want to be governed. I don’t want to hear Kellyanne Conway pitching “go buy Ivanka’s stuff”. I don’t want to read about our President picking a fight with a department store. Maybe that is safer than him picking a fight with China, but nevertheless, there is a certain “seriousness” we expect from our Commander-in-Chief. It is a serious job, one I think our President is taking very lightly.
