“If there’s something strange in you neighborhood, Who you gonna blame? (Obama!), If there’s something weird, And it don’t look good, Who you gonna blame? (Obama!)” – with apologizes to Ghostbusters
To date (and this could change when Donald wakes-up and starts tweeting) President Trump has blamed former President Obama for;
- Mike Flynn
- The botched raid in Yemen
- Organized protests
- Wiretapped phones
- Poor economic numbers
- Outsourced jobs
- Gangs across the United States
- Problems in the Middle East
- McDonald’s pulling the McRib sandwich
- The cancellation of The Apprentice
- The bogey he got on #8
- The thirty pounds he has put on since November
- Why his wife stayed in NYC
- That KFC won’t deliver to the White House
I am trying to think back over the last 100 days or so, has President Trump taken the blame for anything? Have we heard him utter the phrase “I was wrong” or how about in the urban vernacular, “My bad”? Nope I can’t think of a single instance.
“Pride makes us artificial and humility makes us real.” – Thomas Merton
It must be hard to live your life being that much smarter than everyone else. I can’t imagine the amount of pressure that would put on me, to always be right, never be wrong.
“Humility is the solid foundation of all virtues.” – Confucius
So to all you conservative Christians out there, let’s put your stance on abortion and the Supreme Court aside, would you say that your President has demonstrated his ability to “act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God” in his first 100 days? I would certainly love to hear your argument that he has and please feel free to offer any examples.
“A Christian reveals true humility by showing the gentleness of Christ, by being always ready to help others, by speaking kind words and performing unselfish acts, which elevate and ennoble the most sacred message that has come to our world.” – Ellen G. White
