And so, we have a word to describe the newly elected President of the United States, the all-powerful, Commander in Chief, Humpty-Dumpty Donald Trump….and most of the fools people who voted the fool into office.
It’s like Cassius Clay….uh, Mohammed Ali is back – “I am the Greatest!” All feeling, all the time – no thinking. No tact – no diplomacy – no restraint – no social graces – no executive ability – no plans, except that foggy, feel-good ‘Make America Great.’
It’s a shame that the Barnum and Bailey Circus has disbanded. As a Chief Executive….he’d make a great clown. I just hope that, when I hear him say, “You’re fired.” he’s talking to Anthony Scaramucci, not the red ICBM launch button that he’s going to use, to teach Russia or North Korea a lesson.
Maybe I should use some anoesis, and just sit back and feel good, without thinking or worrying about what’s going wrong. Maybe not though. There’s another ‘A’ word to describe people like that. It’s ‘Asshole!’ 😯
And just to flesh out an otherwise anorexic little post – I’d like to mention that this one is another small milestone. It is my 800th published blog. My many thanks to all of you who have made it possible. 😀 😎 🌯
