A female stand up comedienne commented during the presidential election campaign that Hillary Clinton was considered by many female voters to be a “bitchy politician”. She went on to say that was a good thing. In her opinion, “bitches get the job done right.”
The viewing public yesterday witnessed the bitchy side of Mr T. He constantly rallied against the members of the press corps, repeated his ignorance of certain facts and figures that were presented to him by anonymous staff members and did not really discuss any issues relevant to the general welfare or interest to the American people.
His impromptu performance at meeting the folks was unplanned and he presented his case as a man who had inherited a dreadful political and economic situation at home and abroad.
The villain(ess) in this whole situation was Hillary Clinton and the Democrats who somehow managed to capture a major portion of the popular vote that he felt was somehow reserved for himself.
If Ms Clinton had been elected president and offered this type of emotional outburst and spleen venting it would have been described as an “estrogen explosion” and summarily dismissed by an understandingly, sympathetic male audience.
But Trump’s blood-letting exercise served not only to alienate him from supportive party members but also in the minds of his staunchest supporters.
He described his team as a well oiled machine that was taking care of business. He blamed the Democrats for delaying the appointment of his team members and there have been increased television advertisements asking viewers to contact their congressmen to help the Trump Team get appointed to their posts.
In the meantime Retired Vice Admiral Bob Harward ( top left ) turned down President Donald Trump’s offer to be national security adviser Thursday, depriving the administration of a top candidate for a critical foreign policy post days after Trump fired Michael Flynn.
Harward cited family reasons for his saying no to the job offer. Unofficially , he reportedly told friends and associates that the position was considered to be a “s**t sandwich” and he wanted no part of that situation.
That type of cuisine offering has become that latest food fad offering in the White House commissary. It offers the fussy eater a non vegan and non meaty type of sustenance geared to more hearty palates.
In the new White House you are also allowed to ignore protocol and eat food with your fingers instead of the proper eating utensils. This also applies to eating soup. Chaos theory allows for these types of common sense inconsistencies.
There was also a one day strike by restaurants and other businesses across the country (top right) who closed their doors in support of a “Day Without Immigrants,” a national grassroots movement seeking to protest President Trump’s immigration reforms and immigration policy changes.
Trump seems to have forgotten that many of these immigrants ( illegal or vetted) take the poorer paying jobs that no one else would ever consider taking. The silent majority would rather subsist on welfare and other social handouts than apply themselves to these service industry positions.
Oh well, as long as the government is a well oiled machine I guess the pleas and protests of the common man and woman are drowned out by the hum of progress.
Mr Trump is preparing to press the flesh and meet the workers at Boeing. He is going to inspect the company’s latest offering which he stated was overly expensive.
It is always good to know that Sean Spicer will be there to not only cover for the short comings of his fearless leader but also add a few choice one liners and invectives to incite the press corps.
Overblown statement based on fantasy and hyperbole instead of fact are part of the political tradition…I think. –gc
