A Chill pill

 

The left is an incredible thing. Donald Trump hasn’t even been in office for three months yet and they have created more unrest and civil disobedience than the conservatives created in eight years with Obama. Listen…plain truth…I don’t like Trump. I don’t trust Trump. I didn’t vote for Trump. I did a write in. For whom is unimportant. He didn’t win, though it is looking more and more it would have been better if he had.

 

 

 

Trump swore he wouldn’t be an executive order type of President when he was campaigning, but he’s done nothing but. He swore he would disconnect from or cease his business practices while he’s in the oval office. He has not. Has anyone stopped to ask themselves why Melania is staying in New York? No business can be conducted from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Hmmmmm, something smells fishy in Denmark.

 

 

 

Donald Trump has a very limited vocabulary. His speaking abilities are very limited, sooo limited. The gaps in between what he says and what he means are, as he would say, huge. This allows the left a lot of room to have a little fun with his comments, much like Sarah Palin and her “can see Russia from my front lawn”. Folksy and plain do not work in the political realm. If your message is not on point, there will be detractors who use your inaccuracies against you.

 

 

 

The left had eight years of being able to leave their thesauruses at home, and their political decoder rings in the box. Obama knew what people wanted to hear, he knew how to tame the leftist shrews. He is an educated man who used his legal background to explain, describe, and promote his ideas….Donald Trump has no such mannerisms. His educational background not quite so Ivy League, his vocabulary not quite so Oxford Dictionary.

 

 

 

Simple and plain are great for poets and songwriters, but not for politicians. Things in the political realm have to be explained with finesse, something Trump lacks. Trumps cold and street level communication style is refreshing, but if you say something (like an attack in Sweden) happened, it better have happened. If you give a time, a day, or a period of time in which something will be done, it better be. If you want respect, you have to give it, and Trumps vocabulary sometimes misses the mark.

 

 

 

Trump is egocentric. He tends to forget what got him to the dance. Eight years of bad decisions, misguided ethics, and outright lies created space for Trumps “honest” style, and his election win. Now the left is honing in on everything wrong, obfuscated, or misunderstood that he and his cabinet say. Bowling Green, Sweden, conversations with Russia are things that will not go unnoticed by the left, and they will use it like a crowbar.

 

 

 

Facebook is nothing but “Trump said what?”, “Trump appointee said”, and the “can you believe Trump did” memes and statuses are flowing like water over the Niagara Falls. Trump haters are easily finding fodder for their vitriol and displays of why Trump shouldn’t be president. It is tiring and frustrating to go to Facebook and find your feed full of nothing but political garbage and hate. Anti-Trump post followed immediately by pro-Trump statuses. It’s getting old, and if we are going to be subjected to this trash every day for the next four years, I predict a dark time for Facebook.

 

 

 

Anyway, President Trump should have the same chance Obama was given. The left should back off a bit and let things go. Accept the president for who he is and realize that mistakes will be made. In four years, they can elect another Obama or a Hillary. Then the right will have its time to mourn a loss. Trump needs to realize his style isn’t working any magic on the left. If he wants to win them over, he’s going to have to adapt, to alter his style slightly, otherwise the next four years will be a living hell for all of us. He needs to stop the executive orders if he doesn’t want to be compared to Obama. He needs to stop the over-simplistic rhetoric and at least look presidential. The last “simple” president gave us a new deal but he gave it to us using poetic words, adult words, words that say “I graduated high school”. I’m not comparing them, just making a statement.

 

 

 

I didn’t vote for Trump, but I am willing to give him a chance. The left should take a deep breath and do the same.

    BTW Palin never said that, Tina Fey said something to that effect mocking her on SNL & everyone has run with it as if Palin actually said it.
    .
    Just like Trump never said ALL Mexicans or ALL Muslims, but it’s just not as juicy for the evening news if Trump said something reasonable.

      The funniest one was where Tina was just rambling insanely, spouting word salad like she was on crack. Turned out to be an actual word-for-word quote!

      Palin was attributed to many things she never said or did.

    Right now, Facebook is filled with a whole lot of extremely negative and dangerous people. There are paid shills from both sides of the fence inundating various sites, both media and others.

    There’s too much inaccurate info/rhetoric in the rant to even begin wading in. Pick A topic, and someone may be willing to explain it to you, although from the tone of the piece I seriously doubt your open to anything you don’t already “know.”

      That sounds more harsh than intended. I’ll rephrase and say that there are inaccuracies in some of your points, but the overall theme of giving Trump a chance to govern is one that everyone should embrace as the due of any elected POTUS. Too many have forgotten to respect the office despite their politics and personal beliefs. It’s good to be reminded from time to time.
