The Trumpeteer

There was a time, not too long ago, when I considered myself a displaced person.  What does that mean exactly?  It means that you feel like you are wandering aimlessly, even though you may have a home or two or even a direction.  Is it possible to get beyond the stress in transition? Yes, but it takes a toll.  Your memory may go, you find yourself at odds with yourself, you forget to include important/silly things (hairspray, aspirin,)  when you are packing to make this journey from knowing where you are headed, to not having an idea what you may be facing in the future.  The older you get, the harder it seems to be to get it all together.  And what happens when you are traveling the unbeaten path with someone else?  Ordinarily, if you are a woman and your companion is a male, it is doubly difficult because you become responsible for two people instead of one.

Here’s a thought:  Is it possible that D. Trump is suffering stress in transition everyday?  Think about it. Everyday he has to create some kind of chaos in some area of government or personally. So, everyday there is a transition in his life.  Since he has no idea what he’s doing, and he hates to make decisions that are questioned by anyone, every moment of his life he faces a transition of sorts. 

Let’s pause for a “Na na nee ah na” moment.  Pelosi suggested Trump not give his State of the Union address because of the government shut down.  Everyone knew he would use the speech to make yet another pitch for his ludicrous wall.  In return, the Trumpeteer refused to allow Leader Pelosi to use a military plane to visit the troops, where there are troops that would appreciate some acknowledgement of their efforts to keep the peace — OK so there is no peace, but even so everyone likes a visitor.  Maybe she’ll bring a little cake, some rugala, whatever.  Anyway, the troops will not be receiving any treats because the Trumpeteer forbid the use of a military plane and suggested she fly commercial. What a dolt! Everyone knows that commercial airlines do not fly anywhere where they may have to provide meals instead of snacks. Isn’t Trumpeter a good name for the moron pretending to be the most important person in the world.  Kind of a cross between a Mouseketeer and an off key musical instrument.
No need to explain because you are all smart enough to figure out your own meaning.  

If i were planning a Presidential campaign, which thankfully I am not, the first thing to be done is to quote Mitch McConnell who, when Obama was elected, announced that NOTHING would get done while Obama was the President.  If you wanted to blame someone for the total inability to get anything done, there is no need to look beyond the Republican leadership.  And the Trumpeter, is neither competent to run the Government or to understand the consequences of his inability to make a decision that lasts more than an hour.  He, like McConnell, just doesn’t give a good God damn about any real people who are seriously suffering, not only the from the government shutdown, but for the lack of concern about health care, education of our children and the economy in general.

To be clear, there is no proof that a wall works, not when its possible to tunnel under it.    Separating children from their parents seems not to work either, except to cause thousands of children to feel abandoned, insecure, and hostile to a government with no heart and no mind.  In order to think that separation should be a government policy, the author of the policy has to be mentally ill.  Is there anyone who thinks that caging young people, toddlers through teenagers, is a good policy? 

Maybe I digress but how can you not?  It is simply too painful to think about all the horrible things this supposed head of government has done to the people who elected him, and those who didn’t, who are probably in the majority.  But back to stress in transition which most of us suffer everytime the Trumpeteer opens his mouth. Is there anything to be done? Probably not until the next election.  All the talk about impeachment is mere frivolity. Why? A big thank you to Mitch McConnell and his merry band of the Trumpeteer’s sycophants.

We’re just sayin’…   Iris
