“There are times when I am so unlike myself that I might be taken for someone else of an entirely opposite character.” ― Jean-Jacques Rousseau,

I was visiting a nearby hardware store the other day when I noticed the above hot air figure flying prominently in the breeze.
This lively character was meant to drum up business for a local charitable event scheduled to be held this weekend.
The inflatable figure reminded me of the way the “new” Republican party members seem to present themselves as ready to face all obstacles but in a crunch situation retreat immediately into a self protective cocoon.
I wonder if the members of that party realize how Trump’s Tweets and online Taunts (TNT) have lessened their efficacy in the eyes of both supporters and non supporters.
TNT used to indicate something that was an explosive force to be reckoned with.
Trump’s TNT facade is now being equated to a little pop with little or no clout. — gc
