Spoken like a true five-year-old to Time Magazine. You have to respect our president’s bravado. (Not really.) I can just picture Trump as a little bully boy, sticking his tongue out on the playground, bragging and traumatizing the other children. Nice kids whose knees shake at the mere sight of our emerging Liar-in-Chief. I mean, Repeater-in-Chief. Our Fearless Tweeter.
Only this man-child’s not so scary now. (Except that he might get us bombed off the face of the earth.) He’s dangerous, but not as personally formidable because he has firmly established himself as a joke. A national, international, and probably an interstellar one.
With his yuge fifty-word vocabulary he has managed to defend the indefensible, (wire-tapping yapping, etc.) while cheapening the office of the presidency. He’s never wrong because he’s the President, and well, you know. I just wish he was articulate:
“And a lot of information has just been learned, and a lot of information may be learned over the next coming period of time. We will see what happens,” Trump said. “Look, I predicted a lot of things that took a little bit of time.”
Now, is that any way for a president to talk? I mean, when he’s not on his beloved teleprompter. It’s bad enough that he falsehoods, (my new verb) but can’t he try to present his lies in a more grammatically correct way? When I grew up my English teacher said that “a lot” was something you built your house on. (I just ended that sentence with a preposition.)
It doesn’t matter. Especially to his cult. His followers love their “instinctual” president no matter what he says or does. We’ll see what happens if they lose their healthcare. Credibility issues? Never.
“The country believes me,” he said. “Hey. I went to Kentucky two nights ago, we had 25,000 people in a massive basketball arena. There wasn’t a seat, they had to send away people.”
I’m certain those people weren’t the three million “illegal” voters whose imaginary existence assaulted Trump’s ego and cost the unpopular guy the popular vote. All it takes is hitting him in his soft spot to weaken him. Let’s keep doing it.
It’ll be “sad” to observe how puffed up he’s bound to get with a healthcare win. Is his heart bleeding for the American people, or does he just want the win? It was a campaign promise after all. And a promise is a promise. Too bad the promises he insists on fulfilling are bad for the environment, bad for the arts, bad for science, and bad for democracy. I think he must be a “bad dude.” I think he must be mistaking activity with achievement. He would disagree with me though, because he’s the president, and I am not.
