An interesting piece from Jackson Proskow of Global News.
Jackson contends that Donald Trump hasn’t accomplished much in Office, and who could argue really?
I told anyone who would listen that Donald Trump would get shut down by Washington. He’s not really a Republican; he’s not a Democrat. He’s Trump. He’s flies alone and he shoot from the hip.
He is the quintessential loose cannon.
“Make America Great Again” sounds more like a dog whistle bumper sticker that should read “Either you’re with us, or your not.”
I was hoping for more from Donald Trump. I wanted change to work. I want a new type of politician.
As Jackson points out, most politicians avoid controversy like the plague. Donald Trump actually embraces it.
Funny thing is; I agree about the flag. I love patriotism. It shows an a appreciation for our forefathers who stood up against maniacs with nefarious designs — and many who continue to do so in present day. It acknowledges that we know that freedom…isn’t free. So, it’s too bad that these two separate themes have been melded together.
But the 1st Amendment is as important as any other, if not MORE important.
Personally I wish that we could 1) rid racial injustice 2) stand for our anthems and 3) demand that the President gets to work on serious world issues (that effect all of us), instead of showing up at campaign styled pep rallies only to inevitably stick his fist in a hornets nest and leave his country even more divided than when he entered the room.
Does he need division? Does he need to stir up ‘us vs. them?‘ The seeds of a revolution?
Doubt it’ll work. Unless he can turn it around, and he won’t be able to do it like he has been; this is a one term President who will be the butt of jokes for many years to come.
In this weeks poll I ask you; Do you agree with the Global piece
“Does Donald Trump thrive on division in America?”
