Donald Trump

Another day and another thing our President says, does or Tweets is called “Offensive” or “Rude” or “Not Presidential.”  It’s getting old and I’m confused by why people are shocked by anything this man says or does.  He’s not politically correct.  He’s not one to compromise.  Sometimes he may come off as caustic and brash.  Where’s the news here?  This behavior and the Trump brand was spelled out for all of us to observe in his 1987 best-seller “The Art of the Deal.”

President Trump has penned over ten best selling books.  “The Art of the Deal” is the one you should read.  It’s the perfect business model of who Donald Trump is, what he believes and how he conducts business.  He knows the laws.  A lot of laws on the books today are stupid.  Trump seeks these out, exploits them, finds the loopholes that will give him the advantage and then plays his hand.  He likes to walk out of meetings if you aren’t serious about making a deal.  He’s a freak about trust.  You’re either on Team Trump or you will be on the outside looking in.  Sound familiar?  That’s who he was in 1987, that’s who he was when he won the Presidency in 2016 and that’s who he is today.

I understand if ya don’t like the guy.  Sometimes he says things that leave even his greatest supporters saying “Oh boy…..”  Sometimes he says things that causes people to say “Did he have to say it THAT way?”  The answer is “yes.”  That’s just the way he operates.  At least there isn’t much grey and ya know how he feels.  Sure it stings.  Yes it’s uncomfortable.  If your not happy with the way your 401-K is blowing up, the surging stock market and the record low unemployment….you do have an option.  Circle Tuesday, November 23, 2020 on your calendar and vote him out.  Thanks for reading!

I have followed the career of Al Sharpton since the late 80’s.  He’s quite the character but if you pull back the skin like an onion you’ll see the truth–he’s a fraud and not a nice person.  You would think that while you are in the process of building a brand that would influence many and in return put you in a position of power you would embrace any support from black moderate Democrats.  The truth is he has referred to the aforementioned as “Cocktail sip Negroes” or “Yellow niggers.”  Hmmmm.  Not exactly the Joe Biden man hug I was hoping for.

Sharpton made a lot of noise with the media in the 80’s.  He would randomly call New York radio and TV stations with his opinion on stories that involved a person of color.  He soon became familiar with many journalists in the New York area and when they would need a comment for a news story that had a racial slant….they resorted to calling Sharpton.  I give him credit for being able to manipulate the media into becoming the Sea Monkeys that they are.

Let’s fast forward to today.  Every Democratic nominee for President in 2020 has resorted to kissing this man’s ring in order to get an endorsement.   Based on his terrible and short lived TV show it is obvious he is insecure and would never hire anyone to challenge him.  In regards to his TV show he took on a project he was unable to handle.  If I was on staff I would have advised him:  “Perhaps you should concentrate on putting a few sentences together before putting on the Lion’s head.”

Critics of my brilliant and accurate observation of Al Sharpton will and do play the race card.  They will scream “He doesn’t like black people.”  I will say this again.  I don’t see color.  I see good and evil and as long as you have brought up color I would suggest you find a true patriot of color to rally behind.  Start with Ben Carson and if you have any more doubts about the integrity of Al Sharpton I would suggest a search on Tawana Brawley.
