Since the Presidential Election, Donald Trump supporters have been saying that those who did not vote for Donald Trump—a majority of Americans—should “Get over it!”, give him a chance, and that we should show him some respect. My simple response is “Why?” So far, both prior to the Election and since, Donald Trump has not given most of us any reason to believe that he has actually changed his stripes. Once a cad, always a cad! And what about the respect that he did not afford Barack Obama?
Donald Trump can observe a decent human being and Great Leader, by watching the Tuesday Night Farewell Speech of Current President Barack Hussein Obama, which was broadcast from Chicago’s Grant Park. Obama wanted to return to where it all began, in his Hometown. But, it was truly meant for All of America! He was Your President too! Not Blue States, or Red States, but the President of All America!
If Mr. Trump watches that video, he will see a Love-Fest! Tears of joy, to have had Obama as out President for eight years, and tears of Sorrow, in knowing that it will come to an end, much too soon! Barack Obama was the President of all Americans, and he did not base that on the size of their checkbooks, their business connections or what they might add to his political stature. President Obama has given as much as he has received—Love, Honor and Respect. And, let me add Honesty!
So far, Donald Trump’s House of Cards seems to be showing signs of premature crumbling: working class Americans are realizing that their first-time ever Affordable Health Care is in serious jeopardy; his Cabinet nominees have been contradicting his avowed policies in Senate Hearings; and Congressional members of Trump’s own party have begun to question his business loans from foreign governments, his admiration for Russian President Putin and, again, a viable replacement, if they repeal “Obamacare”.
So Trump fans, don’t expect that, based on a number of questionable acts and errors, that Donald Trump has become a Leader overnight, much less worthy of being loved, honored and respected. As far as many of us are concerned, Donald J. Trump is just the fox who has—horror of horrors—been placed in charge of the chicken coop!
