Lately, I’ve tried to avoid Speaking about President Trump. In the past, I’ve tried to defend his policies and at times his statements but…Once bitten twice shy. I can only imagine how frustrating it must be for him. In large part, Republicans have a majority in both the House and Senate because voters liked the populist agenda that Trump was pushing so they also gave him the tools he would need to advance his agenda. But, it seems we were duped. For seven years The Republicans pushed for a repeal of Obamacare when there was no chance of success. Time after time they voted on a repeal knowing damned good and well that Obama would veto the bill. Suddenly, and surprisingly, they found themselves in a position to make real change but, alas, they hadn’t done their jobs. They hadn’t planned for what they would replace it with so now they are flopping around looking foolish.
As I said, it must be frustrating for our President but he isn’t helping himself by reverting to name calling on other issues. When he came out with the Rocketman tag when talking about the DPKR and their leader, Kim Jong-un I couldn’t help thinking that I viewed juvenile name calling juvenile even back when I was a juvenile…WHEW, say that three times fast. Now it seems he is focused on the NBA and NFL.
Please, Mr. President, tell me you aren’t squandering your time on sports and how best to insult others. With all of the real issues in this country and around the world, we could use a real adult leader.
Mr. President, please show us you can be better than that.
