OMG talking about Trump again.
The following is a rough summary of the Calvert’s Crossing podcast on Donald Trump, tune in to the podcast to enjoy all the snark and humor that hasn’t been included in the transcript below. All about our 45th president Mr. Donald J. Trump More people are paying attention to politics now that Trump is president, so all publicity is good publicity right? Since Trump has been in office there has been a rise in activism and our economy has done better. Of course I don’t know that you can attribute the economy shift to Trump. I’ve heard that you don’t feel the effects of the work of the former president for a year or two so is it possible that these are the ripples of President Obama? For instance, the new tax reform bill, even though it starts this year you won’t see the effects of it until the end of 2018. So when Donald Trump ran I thought it was a joke, you know the one guy who is a wizard and promises everyone a dragon…..Then he won the party nomination. So at first I was inspired because this guy had no political background, and I thought wow, anyone can do this! So I think most Donald Trump supporters were duped. I think he was running on this, “I’m different than the government than you’re used to, all about blue collar workers, all about jobs” then half the shit he says is just crazy and the policies he puts on the table just don’t come from him. Nowadays we can’t look at our president and say he is presidential, in a crisis this is the leader we look to. For example if you remember the Cuban missile crisis, say we had something like that and we want the president to put our mind at ease, we’d have to follow him on Twitter to do that! If you’re a still Trump supporter after all that has happened in this new presidency then you are the problem because you are supporting someone who has shown that he is not capable of being a president for the United States. We don’t want to alienate Trump supporters but we want you to check your facts. Trump has made over 2,001 completely misleading statements in 355 days. #alternativefacts It’s important to use critical thinking rather than jumping on the bandwagon. We’ve moved from opinions to facts. The last instance where Trump called certain countries “shithole” countries, this is at the most a racist thing to say and at the least it’s in bad taste. The president speaks for all Americans; he’s the face of the entire country and should be using more tact. Trump does his communication via Twitter which is one of the worst ways to communicate an important message with the people. Especially if you’re mocking another country with nukes. If you are able to access the internet or go out and fact check yourself you’d find that 99% of what the media says he said he really said! Why didn’t I know about alternative facts in high school?! I could have used that. So more people are starting to get involved in politics now and trying to get the Democrats elected into the House. For all of the impeach Trump fans, have you looked at the Vice President who would take over if Trump was out? Can we grin and bear it for 3 more years? Maybe with all of this buffoonery going on we can come together now and talk about remember when … love and peace man.
