Trump Stew…Old Family Recipe!

Trump Stew…Old Family Recipe!
235 lbs. (approximate) Donald J Trump
1 whole Steve Bannon (a little tough)
1 whole Jared Kushner (no added taste)
1 whole Michael Flynn (sour)
1 whole Sean Spicer (nothing to speak of)
Dash of:  Jeff Sessions-Eric Trump-Donald Trump Jr. (just more of the same)
A pinch of Ivanka (for looks)
Optional – Melania Trump (for style)
Big League Brand / Bag of Lies (can be generic)
Most Important: Dressing must be Russian (thickens the Stew)
Preparation time can vary; 130 days to 4 years!

Mix all ingredients together making sure nothing escapes!
Chef Trump requests a Teflon Pan so that nothing will stick… with high heat …a must!
Not to worry, it doesn't matter how long it cooks…it will never get overdone…or done!
He says none of the ingredients are fake…and that is really news to me!
Trump Stew will stick together with tastes always changing!
Serve, preferably, with a liquid to wash it down because it may be difficult to swallow!

Undermining Democracy…with Lies!

It’s sad to see the opportunities President Donald J. Trump has let slip through his fingers. President of the United of America as of January 20, 2017, he had the chance to prove himself to both his base and his opposition. He just could not do that. Trump has demons within him, a personality disorder that does not allow him to do what people thought he was capable of doing once elected. They thought he was a genius of sorts because he told them so, through bullying and strong words exemplifying the most unacceptable behavior. I for one was waiting for that pivot everyone spoke about. That Presidential moment when “a man” becomes “the man,” but it never happened. The downward spiral is only the beginning for this President. When a man thinks everyone else is wrong other than him and tries to prove it with lies and more lies, implicating people who have exemplary past history, the sham becomes evident and talk of impeachment becomes real.

I still have hope in our democracy to overcome the cancer that is chipping away at its existence. Time is of the essence, and as it goes, he is digging fast and furious soon to reach China, as I used to think when I dug a hole at the beach as a child. My mother used to say, “You are digging so deep, soon you'll reach China.” Maybe he will!!

The Secret Life of….President Trump!!

In the book, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, the main character is living in a world of fantasy, only seen through his eyes. In his mind, everyday happenings become embellished with elements far different than what everyone else is experiencing.  Of course, being a novel, the author can change or decide on what is next. Donald J. Trump is the author of his very own book, only it is a non-fiction playbook continuously rolling out various versions of his very own fantasies or what the world may consider downright lies. His daily telling tales are getting more bizarre and implicating even to those close to him. Our Whitehouse is living in his secret world!

Unfortunately, our lives are real, and we just can’t stop the days and months from moving forward so we have to take responsible action to make the changes before the changes take us all down a road we cannot recover from. Hearing and seeing the news today is like listening to myself repeat what I have written as well as the words of others as in scholars, authors, doctors, just about anyone who knew Trump in his life before being elected, I am sorry to say, President of the United States of America. His web of lies has grown to a level of total disbelief. He is like quicksand; waiting to gobble everyone up just to keeping the truth about his unscrupulous life both in business and private from becoming public

Faster than the speed of light...

I guess Trump is running the government like he runs his businesses. Get away with as much as you can under the law, legal, but close to the wire. Pushing through a so called "New and Improved" Healthcare Act without scoring, as we usually do, is beyond reproach. Those who approve it will have to live with the consequences for a very long time, as well as the public who are the recipients of this probable abomination of legislation. They couldn't wait to do it, just to give a pumped up high, like that of a druggie, to our President. Surely it will lead to the falling of the Republican Party. I should be happy, as I am a proclaimed Democrat, but on the contrary, I am saddened by this debacle. 

They say it is a done deal. Shame on them if it is!

Time Flies...with a little help!

Although it feels like an eternity, Donald J. Trump is already into his 6th #Monthaversary, a word made up to celebrate the anniversary of every month that goes by during the Trump Administration. We have to celebrate eight 6-Monthaversaries, equaling a 4-year presidential term. Now that seems to sound better than 3 1/2 more years. We only have seven more 6 #Monthaversaries to go! Confusing? Anything to make it sound shorter!
