A Bumpy Ride

She is a gem.  The milk of human kindness runs through her veins.  Her opinions are the only ones that count.  She is, in her own mind, better than the rest of mankind.  So, of course, she should get special seating for her very large ego.  However, she did not and she made much ado about this, even to point of degrading others.  Miss Ann Coulter we all know is not a nice or caring person.  We put up with her commentary but we do have have to put up with her neediness on a plane.  There is so much criticism, and justly deserved, of the airlines lately.  This Ann Coulter incident exemplifies that the passenger can well cause incidents too.   Ms. Coulter was concerned about room for her long legs.  To her, shorter people are just “dachshund-legged”.  They do not count in her book.  Me first is the Ann Coulter way.  I have long not listened to this bigoted commentator.  Let’s give her plenty of leg room and let her fly to the moon.

What A Guy!

They had to bus them in in Poland for the fake adoration of our President.  The right-wing President made sure that Trump has lots of fans on hand.  How Trumpian!  Just what our President wanted even as he slammed yet again the American Press and the American Intelligence community.  He was more concerned with bad mouthing our free press than he was  in defending our freedom.  Poland is little by little ripping away their own free press.  Donald Trump just endorsed that.  The President of Poland thought maybe something of substance would be discussed.  No, Donnie wanted to talk about the 17 Intelligence Agencies that all agree, and he still won’t confirm, that we were indeed hacked by Russia.  How about all that business he brought in with “The Apprentice” for a TV network!  How about that look of sheer “why is he talking about that here look ” on the face of the Polish President. Good thing Trump enjoyed the crowds in Warsaw.  Not to be Hamburg.  They are assembling at this writing.  No love for Trump there.  They bused themselves in freely and ready to protest against this president.  Angela Merkel is ready for him.  She is straight forward and puts up with none of his rhetoric.  He shook her hand this time.  We will take any thing we can that borders on civility from this president.  The crowds in Hamburg are amassing.  Donald likes to take pictures of his crowds.  This is a great photo op, Donald.  Their theme in Hamburg is “Welcome To Hell”, a theme the USA knows so well under your presidency.  Smile pretty.  The Press loves you back.

Push ‘Em Back, Push ‘Em Back, Way Back

Football?  No, indeed.  It was Thursday’s press briefing with Sarah Huckabee Sanders.  There are no bounds in how far Trump’s staff would go to protect him.  Can no one speak up to this man!  No one can and Sarah Huckabee Sanders absolutely condoned his behavior.  He has a “right” to this behavior she says.  You punch him and he punches back harder she says, all the while preaching the importance of faith in her life.  I am not to judge her faith but I do judge her practice of it.  Condoning and even justifying Trump’s behavior toward women is deplorable.  Additionally, no one else on his staff spoke up either, especially the female staff.  Most importantly, no female family members spoke up either.  Melania has already tweeted her protective stance in spite of declaring her war on bullying.  No surprise there.  That brings us to Ivanka.  Not a word after she thrust herself on us all as a protector of women’s rights.  Charity starts at home, Ivanka, and you have a home grown project that you need to give attention.  Start with your Daddy and his vile mouth.  Don’t pontificate to the rest of the world until you take care of business at home.  Shut him up any way you can.  He has degraded women and certainly our country with his actions and with his words.  Start there and maybe you will get some credence in the area of womens’ rights.  Pushing back, way back, works in football.  It is not appropriate for personal attacks by the president of the United States.  Yes, this president needs a referee.   As of now, Trump and his team are losing big time.

Hug On!

It warmed the cockles of my heart!  But then, the sight of Ivanka Trump and Marco Rubio always does that to me.  But, together in the hug of all hugs, was perfect, just perfect.  What warmth.  What sincerity.  It was enough to melt snow on a summer day.  How artificial can you get!  But, those two are superb at just that.  Rubio, my very own senator (so proud!) is the master of illusion.  Nothing there, ever.  His dinner date with Trump I thought did it for me.  His strange hug of daughter dearest is downright despicable.  The man has no moral fiber.  He just wants to be president and will do just about anything to get there.  I can only admire Jeb Bush who stuck to his guns; no adoration of Trump there.  Rubio is no friend to Florida and now his health care vote against Obamacare will do us all in.  Ivanka just dresses up, has her hair fixed and shows up for photo ops.  This one, however, back fired.  So too did all those Instagrams showing her art collection worth millions that she (nor Jar-Jar) reported.

I picture is worth a thousand words.  This one said the news is not fake; it is the people who are fake.  Hug on!  Could Cruz and Melania be next!

He Said/She Said

Is your head spinning about now?

The White House says everything is transparent; nothing is.

Sean Spicer, now so busy looking for a replacement, says he has never talked with Trump about Russian meddling.  Oh come on!

Trump’s lawyer cannot even agree with himself.   So like the guy that hired him.

Trump has tapes.  Trump does not have tapes.  He better read up on Watergate.

Our health bill is a secret and it is OK.  Obama’s health bill was a secret and it was not OK.

Follow the money.  Hard when it goes through Russian and other foreign banks.

Trump did not fire Comey.  Trump did fire Comey.  We heard it from Trump himself on national TV that he did.

Trump ordered Rothenstein to do the Hillary letter re Comey.  Trump never ordered the letter.  He was going to fire Comey anyway over that “Russian thing”.  Again, this from Trump on national TV.

Our president loved his one night at Camp David.  Right.  You can bet on his returning to his own properties maybe even this weekend.

It’s Obama’s fault.  Everything still is.  The sad death of Otto this week is blamed on Obama.  Trump never mentioned his admiration of Kim Jong-Un and how he runs his country.

Members of the administration’s HIV team have quit.  No Trump agenda there they say.  This is true and can be believed.  Only when it concerns the poor and needy can it be true.

Trump’s “good guy” Flynn  is actually one BAD guy.  We have enough information already to confirm that.

Tax reform will help us all.  Only the top 1% of our country will affirm that.

So, my fellow citizens we can have our cake and eat it too.  We have yes and we have no.  It is confirmed and it is not.  It happened and it never happened.  We do, indeed, have what goes for Trump transparency.

We know one thing for sure and nothing left up to chance here.  Since Trump entered the presidential race some two years ago, and especially since taking office, nothing in our world has been the same.  That you can take to the bank.  No both ways there.   Absolute fact that we are in a trumpian decline both at home and abroad.  Our president is yelling at his TV sets.  Reminds us of Nixon talking to the presidential portraits.  The behavior and paranoia oh so similar.

The only statement that surely fits in with the “transparency” of this administration is:  Trump is our President.  Presidential he is NOT.

Nuture in Nature

The President may be getting a “wall” yet!  Not the border wall he was going to build right out of the presidential gate.  This wall is planned for The Palm Beach International Airport.  I think I would wait a bit on this construction.  This president is on shaky ground and this is not a good investment.  As a business man Trump would surely recognize a bad deal when he sees one.  I know Air Force One needs to be parked in a safe place while our president plays golf and entertains at Mar-A-Lago.  However, let us have some of the committees gather more information and let us see how those State Attorney Generals’ law suits go.  There is a lot at stake at the present time and spending millions on this wall can wait.  Wait to see if this president is, indeed, vindicated.  Line up the school buses as you have to date as a barrier.  They work just fine.  We have spent enough on this president’s getaways.  Stock the food shelves for charity organizations, provide housing for the poor.  Let Mr. Trump stay in Washington and may we ban every single wall proposed for and by this president.  Mr President, just stay in Washington and do your job.  This writer has continually wished you would give Camp David a try.  Without the gild and gold you crave, no walls are needed.  Only peace and quiet there and time for reflection and for planning while around nature at its very best.   That, Mr President, no wall can provide.

Help Wanted

There are job openings in many areas in the Trump administration, but no takers, only those leaving the chaos.  Why would anyone run TOWARD this fire!  Run, baby, run!  First of all, you will have to be a “yes” man or woman no matter what this impulsive President proposes.  He is a tyrant and will throw you under the bus quicker than you can say James Comey.  Just look at the mess Jared Kushner is in and Trump actually likes him.  Look at how frazzled and unfocused Sean Spicer is.  Flynn fired.  Communications Director resigned/fired.  Reince is going to be thrown out with the rinse water very soon.  How about that FBI Director that was to be named pronto.  People are literally running from consideration.  No one with a good reputation will keep their good status after working with Trump.  Just look at McMaster and Kelly, no longer to be believed by the American people.  More heads and reputations will roll, maybe even his own daughter’s.  Yes, help is wanted and help is needed at the very top position in this land.  May one day soon we live to see it filled by a capable, rational and experienced person.  The job at the top is filled but in no way does that mean the job has been well done.  Also, you may have to apply under cover of night, just ask Corey Lewandowski.
