As Donald Trump took the oath of office becoming the next president of the United States, the outgoing president was refusing to give leave.
Did you notice that President Trump had to escort President “What’s-His-Name” to Marine One? That was to make sure he really left the Capitol.
Then it seemed like an eternity before the rotors of the helicopter began to turn. I’m certain he was having a hissy fit inside and was demanding to be returned to his White House “built by slaves.”
Oh, how so very tired I am of the everlasting fawning by the MSM of President “Racial Divide.”
As much as the MSM dotes over the rituals and precedents for Trump coming in, no one in the MSM said a word about the excoriatingly long and purposely drawn-out goodbye of President “Red-Line-in-the-Sand.”
In fact, they were willing co-conspirators.
(Watch out, MSM – Twitter World is the new communications tool of the Trump administration, which is going over your talking-heads directly to the people.) But, back to President “Open-the-Door-to-Illegal-Immigrants.”
First, we had to endure all of the “legacy” crap he’s been preaching, and then the MSM started constantly drilling it into the brains of all of their sycophants who truly believe that garbage.
Then we had to hear about his “farewell” speech in his adopted hometown of Chicago (thankfully, not me, as I have a remote). Chicago, the murder capital of the US. Where, incidentally, his ideas of gun control have come home to roost, with no success.
Then we had to hear about his farewell live broadcast to the nation. Ol’ “Shovel-Ready” prez had to lecture us again about his alleged successes regardless of what the true facts are.
Then we had to hear about his farewell press conference and watch the MSM lemmings fall all over themselves as they ask softball questions and write glorifying stories about him and his actions.
I thought we had finally gotten rid of him once he got on the chopper to go on another vacation.
Nope. I was wrong.
President “Narcissist” had to have another farewell press conference at Andrews Air Force Base. Oh, my God.
I didn’t think anyone could be more self-centered than Trump -- except now President “IRS-as-Political-Attack-Dog” has upped the ante to a whole new level.
The former “We’re-Respected-More-than-Ever” president just can’t seem to go riding off into the sunset.
In fact, I’m shocked, really I am, that he didn’t have a press conference when he landed in Palm Springs.
You’d think our holier-than-thou ex-president would take satisfaction from former presidents -- for instance, 41 and 43, even Bill Clinton -- and let the new president take the stage and do his job.
Nope, that can’t happen when you have a Machiavellian president who in his simple mind could’ve been reelected again.
Talk about love thyself. Does this man understand the reality of his feeble actions and what the consequences have been for his Democratic-progressive movement?
During his eight years in office, he’s gone from a 58-seat majority in the U.S. Senate to now a 48-seat minority.
In the U.S. House, Dems used to have 256 seats, now they only have 193 seats, a 63-seat loss.
As the titular head of the Democratic Party, he’s helped them go from 28 state governorships in 2009, to just 16 in 2017.
He’s helped Dems lose control of so many state legislatures that “68 of the country’s 98 partisan state legislative chambers are Republican-run.”
Yeah, he’s got a legacy, but it’s not the one he thinks he has.
Now he’s announced that he may feel compelled to “speak out” if he thinks fundamental change he doesn’t like is occurring.
It doesn’t matter that his candidate lost.
It doesn’t matter that she was running on a “third term” of his disastrous policies.
It doesn’t matter that President Trump won the election in an electoral landslide.
It doesn’t matter that the American people have spoken, and they rejected his notion of what his America was supposed to be.
The “Muslim-centric” former president can’t stand the thought that the world no longer revolves around his every utterance.
I predict it will be a matter of just a few weeks before President “Cut-the-Military-to-the-Bone” speaks out about something going on.
You see, it’s really all about him.
He was supposed to be the savior.
Except he wasn’t.
The “Stab-Israel-in-the-Back” president is going to stay around. And in doing so, he’s going to help solidify President Trump’s support, because the millions of people who put Trump into office don’t want what President “Kill-the-XL-Pipeline-and-Jobs” was trying to sell.
Though he wasn’t on the ballot, his political philosophy was roundly rejected except by the Left Coast and the Northeast's “Elite” Coast.
Oh sure, y’all won more votes, but that’s not how you win the election for president. See, there’s this little section of the Constitution that our brilliant forefathers put in there to make sure everyone has a say and not just those from the most populous states.
Thanks for the memories, President “Taiwan-Is-Part-of-China.”
Our national nightmare is over.
P.S. To all of you “fearful” Dems out there, yeah, it’s a new day. Get over it. Or better yet, just go to your “safe zones” and stay there. All of us God-fearing Dems and Republicans will rebuild this country and make it great once again.
