the day Donald J.Trump came down the escalator in Trump Tower and announced he was running for Pres. my husband said,he’s the one I’m going to vote for.Husband is a man who loathes politics and could care less who’s running. He votes,but has always followed my lead.I pick the losers,so i’m not sure why.Evidently he trusts my judgment.
I wasn’t ready to jump on the Trump Train. I had the candidates narrowed down into the who i would never vote for and most likely to vote for-one stood out of that group.I was pretty committed at that point but i was willing to give Trump much consideration. Yes,i ended up on the Trump Train and my husband and i both enthusiastically supported him.Yes,am ready to enthusiastically support him again in 2020.
The day he put his hand on the Bible and was sworn in was a fantastic day.We couldn’t get to DC to be present at the Inauguration but we’d have loved to have been there.
Past history shows that our Presidents get what is known as the honeymoon period.I’m still asking, where Trump’s? When does the day come we can pop the champagne,throw the confetti and do the happy dance?We don’t drink,don’t have confetti and we’re probably not in any shape to cut the rug but you get the idea.
When does the craziness end? The resistance isn’t going to persuade him to resign and he’s been working so hard to get our country on the right track,there’s no time to do anything untoward that would beg for impeachment. Pres Trump is NOT a quitter.He gave up a great life,a comfortable life to do this for the country;he could have retired and lived well. If they think they’re going to pressure him into resigning they’re dreaming.
We didn’t vote for Bill Clinton.He won 2 terms. We didn’t vote for Obama.He also served 2 terms. Take note #Resistance.We didn’t riot.We didn’t protest. We didn’t fall down on the floor and hold our breathe.Someone voted for these people-they won-and the people who voted for them had their chance to celebrate. The American people-the NORMAL folks, that is-are fair and willing to give any President a chance.
I was born in 1952 and have seen a few Presidents come and go but i have NEVER seen one treated the way Pres Trump has been treated.The media was in the tank for the Clintons and Obama. Still are.They helped Hillary cheat. They let her and Obama skate on any number of scandals. They didn’t bother to investigate. They were all smiley face at just the mention of their names.Now they’re openly hostile and fabricating stories.
I’m tired of the craziness and the conspiracy theories. I have even LESS patience for Sen Lindsey and Graham.You know the ONLY reason the media gives them any latitude is because they attack Trump.
How about this little gem from Obama himself?
or this one?
or for that matter,his final SOTU Address
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Mission, Michelle. The top secret operation revealed to get the First Lady to announce best picture at the Oscars. Producers go undercover to the White House in a move straight out of Argo. This morning, Robin’s exclusive interview with the First Lady.
STEPHANOPOULOS: We’re going now to turn to Robin’s exclusive interview with First Lady Michelle Obama. All over the headlines this week, especially after that surprise appearance at the Oscars to announce the best picture. Robin sat down with her before heading to L.A. to talk about the First Lady’s let’s move campaign and a whole lot more, including how the president is handling a teenager in the White House.
JOHN ROBERTS: Please raise your right hand and repeat after me.
ROBIN ROBERTS: It really seemed, Mrs. Obama, that you and the President and your family, this time around, really took in the moment. Was that the case?
MICHELLE OBAMA: Absolutely. We made a conscious decision to take this in because four years ago, it was a whirlwind. So, this was one of those times where we had to just stop and breathe and appreciate all that we’d accomplished and all that was left to do.
ROBERTS: As President Obama begins his second term, gun violence has become an issue close to both the President and the First Lady. In January, Mrs. Obama attended the funeral of one, young victim in Chicago, gunned down just a week after performing at the inauguration.
OBAMA: Hadiya was an honor student. One of the things her mother said at this funeral, she said, “I did everything I was supposed to do.” And she was absolutely right. She did everything she was supposed to do. She was standing in a park with her friends in a neighborhood blocks away from where my kids grew up, where our house is. And she was caught in the line of fire. I just don’t want to keep disappointing our kids in this country. I want them to know that we put them first.
ROBERTS: Our country’s children have long been the focus of Mrs. Obama’s time in the White House. This is the third anniversary of her Let’s Move campaign, taking on childhood obesity. What have you accomplished with Let’s Move and what remains to be done?
OBAMA: When we started, there were a lot of people in this country who would have never thought that childhood obesity was a health crisis. But now, we’re starting to see rates of obesity coming down like never before. This new initiative that we’re announcing, the “my plate” recipe partnership, where we’re collaborating with some of the top media companies in this country. And they are compiling and labeling and promoting recipes that meet the “my plate” guidelines.
ROBERTS: Now, before I let Mrs. Obama go, I couldn’t resist asking about her latest trend-setting move. Yep. Those new bangs. There’s no hotter topic.
OBAMA: Oh, what? What?
ROBERTS: No hotter topic, than your bangs.
OBAMA: Bangs? What bangs?
ROBERTS: You know, you forced me to go wigless. In December, my wonderful stylist picked out a wig for me. In December. You didn’t debut this until January. Look at this picture.
[On-screen: A picture of Roberts win a wig looking similar to Michelle Obama.]
OBAMA: My goodness. That’s cute.
ROBERTS: I know and I was going to do that. Everyone would have thought I was copying you when I came back.
OBAMA: Aww, well, you know what? Robin, you were so gorgeous. You are one of the women who can do whatever to your hair and you look great.
ROBERTS: Oh, well, thank you.
OBAMA: So, you can mix it up.
ROBERTS: That was December, the wig.
OBAMA: Okay. Robin had it first. Robin– I’m following you.
ROBERTS: Not at all. But that’s the spirit of everything. And when I think about your children, Malia’s going to be 15 in July.
OBAMA: Yeah, I know.
ROBERTS: And your husband has kinda joked, just a little bit, about the knock, knock, knock 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, young man. Is he really concerned about that?
OBAMA: No. I mean, I think he likes to — fathers in particular, I don’t think they really know how they’re going to feel until it happens. You know? There’s nothing like the look on his face when Malia dresses up for a party and she’s heading out. And she walks past him. And you can see his face sort of just drop a little bit. Like, what was that? You know? He’s a little gray. People think the gray is from his job. It’s from his children. So, we’ll see how that goes.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Welcome to the club on that one.
ELIZABETH VARGAS: Good luck.
STEPHANOPOULOS: I’m loving all the details that are coming in about the secret Oscar announcement.
VARGAS: It was like something out of Argo.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Yeah. One of the producers told “the hollywood reporter” they had to fly secretly to the White House. They had to keep it off the manifests. Keep it off all the program runs. First Lady said yes immediately. Se said, “I think it’s a great idea. We watch movies all the time at the White House.” And they pulled it off.
VARGAS: They sure did! That was great!
It’s not funny.The threats of assassination and blowing up the White House aren’t funny either. Enough.We’ve had it.
