“Just leaving Florida. Big crowds of enthusiastic supporters lining the road that the FAKE NEWS media refuses to mention. Very dishonest!” – Donald J. Trump tweet 2-12-17
Why is this important? Did I really need to wake-up this morning with a headline worthy of The Beatles arrival to America for our President, Donald J. Trump?
“Trumpmania Sweeps the Florida Coast”
“Trump Fans Line the Street”
“300 Trump fans taken to the hospital”
“The Reception for Trump was Delirious”
“Bedlam as Mobs hold the Trump Motorcade at Bay”
Let’s think for a moment what should be on our President’s mind this morning; North Korea, yea now there is something to tweet about, or better yet, not tweet about. The launch of a ballistic missile with the possibility of arming it with a nuclear warhead and a mad mans finger on the button. And what made it even more exciting was having the Japanese Prime Minister here slumming at Mar-a-Lago. Think it was intentional? How about your National Security Advisor, Mike Flynn, lying about having conversations with the Russians. Oh wait, it’s the Russians, no biggie. Or how about the defeat in court of his “Travel Ban”, remember it’s not a “Travel Ban” no matter that your President keeps calling it a “Travel Ban”. Apparently not as well thought out or “vetted” as it should have been. But boy he made a spectacular show of it for the camera’s.
Four weeks in ladies and gentlemen, FOUR WEEKS and what has this cat done in four weeks? Created chaos in Washington and then headed to his sunny resort in Florida for the weekend. Mark my words, after his four years are up, we are going to discover that Trump’s “lifestyle” has cost us more than any other modern President.
I continue to be simply fascinated by what this guy finds important. Did he tour the devastation in New Orleans after the tornado’s, no. Why not? Would President Obama have done so? Most certainly. What is the difference between the two? One is self-absorbed, the other was altruistic. One is narcissistic, the other was selfless. The contrast between President Obama and President Trump is staggering. But what Trump wants us to believe, and what he is and has been selling is that President Obama was weak, weak on everything and Trump is not only brilliant but strong, and a fighter and he will fight for you and me! Maybe the reason Trump didn’t go to New Orleans is because he doesn’t look as good in a pair of jeans as Obama did.
Want to read the real headlines today;
“After three weeks, Trump has hit a Washington wall”
“Flynn on thin ice but still in at the White House after turbulent few days”
“Franken: GOP worried about Trump mental health”
“Questions surround Team Trump’s pre-election talks with Russia”
“Conflicts and distrust inside Trump White House”
“Donald Trump Is Selling Access to the ‘Winter White House’ for $200,000”
“Another day, another spelling error, this time on the $16.95 inaugural print”
Those are the headlines, that is the Fake News. Damn, I really wish they were fake.
