Always On His “A” Game
I love watching reruns of the old Perry Mason and Law and Order court room drama with the investigative background work by the detectives of the homicide squad. You know that generally the bad guys are almost always caught by the slightest mistake or a single thread of hair.
I used to love watching “The West Wing” to see how the White House staff operated. The often used phrase “at the pleasure of the president” is what I remember most. The show was so realistic and watching Martin Sheen playing Democratic President Bartlett I saw the actions and decisions being made that were consistent with what a Republican president would have done in those instances.
There is another saying I like to use “the bigger they are the harder they fall” which is proving to be true with the presidency of Donald Trump. I know you don’t want another pro-Trump blog but here it is anyway. Every day for the past 4+ years we have seen the David and Goliath story repeated as one ordinary yet determined man proves he can make a difference. It would be unfair to say he’s done it single-handedly. Wasn’t it Confucius who said “a journey begins with the first step”?
I have to say with Trump it’s been a roller-coaster ride of epic proportions that began with that golden escalator in Trump Tower. His televised announcement that he was running for President of the United States drew laughter and skepticism from nearly all who watched in disbelief thinking it was simply a stunt to draw even bigger crowds to his television show The Apprentice.
Nobody expected him to actually win, except Donald J. Trump. If it’s one thing I’ve learned over the years is that when you tell someone like him he can’t do something, he proves just the opposite. When you tell him it’s too difficult, he makes a way where there is no way. Saying he’s determined is an understatement. Trump is a formidable force that must be dealt with because instead of looking for the easy way around an obstacle, he drives straight ahead. Others make their mistake in underestimating him.
Many politicians are people who fail under pressure, but he is not one of them. Where iron sharpens iron you’ll find Trump. The difference is before he commits himself to something he has counted the cost, seen the benefit and charted a way to make it a reality, whether it’s building the wall; moving the US Embassy to Jerusalem; negotiating with Kim Jong Un or Vladimir Putin; bringing Middle Eastern nations to the peace table with Israel; obtaining the return of POW remains and hostages; waving his wand to bring back manufacturing jobs and so much more.
Those who know Trump will stand by him or if feeling threatened will fight him tooth and nail. Once you understand the deception that is being carried out by his political opponents, the deep state and their media giants he calls “The Swamp”, you’ll discover that you may have been unwittingly sucked into it.
Without going into great detail the events of the past week are enough to show to what lengths that swamp will go to convince American voters that a failed democratic challenger with extensive political experience and nothing substantial to show for it can consistently conduct rally’s with one or less supporters or effectively convey himself during a relaxing televised town hall meeting is shown to have massive polling numbers against a president who has quite literally put his money where his mouth is and kept his promises to America while conducting massive rallies (dubbed peaceful protests) with thousands lining up hours and even days in advance for the opportunity to attend.
The Trump town hall event last night was nothing short of an ambush by a Democratic political activist and I don’t remember of a single question being asked by concerned voters who were in attendance. None the less, President Trump was clear, decisive and even forceful at times to insure his answers were heard loud and clear. The road less traveled normally filled with bumps and pot holes is where President Trump excels on his “A” game.
Only 18 days until we will re-elect President Trump for 4 more years! – I am the Real Truckmaster!
