I rarely commit to voting one particular party, although on a National basis it is usually Republican because no one produces a viable candidate and the Democrat agenda scares the ever loving crap out of me. Not always the promoted agenda but what I see/hear coming from their lips BEFORE they knew they would be a candidate. If you are a Trump Hater, AT THE VERY LEAST, don't let the Democrats control both houses.
Does that mean I love everything about President Trump? Not likely, although I suspect I could like him on a personal level, not a public one. Why would I say that? Look at all the acts of kindness he has performed BEFORE the press started picking him apart.
There are many that not only say he cares about blacks (Herschel Walker, when she was alive so did Whitney Houston), the Jewish people, the average guy, etc., but he acts on it like integrating Palm Beach society at Mar-a Lago.
But wait! "He does not like blacks and Jews!" What a well scripted lie by the Main Street Media and the Left. Did you fall for it? MANY have. Look back and see if it was his actual words or someone interpreting them for you. Do you really need someone to tell you what to think?
So, if the private Donald J. Trump does not add up to the brash, loud spoken public figure we see as President, why? Well, I questioned that as well until recently. I was reminded what it is like to do business in NYC. I have friends and family from the area so I know their public side and their private side.
Not to run down the folks from that section of the U.S. but to exist among 20.3 million people you have to have a certain toughness to hold your own. While many privately live their lives quietly, they often turn into what we in Middle Tennessee would consider tough-as-nails, loudmouth bullies.
My wife experienced that when she stayed a few weeks with family to introduce our daughter. One night we were talking and she said “wow, otherwise sweet ladies turn into fire-breathing dragons when they are driving or if someone cuts them off in the grocery line.”
What is my point? Trump deals and operates in NYC a lot. It shows.
Another question that arises with Trump is his bravado and tendency to state how good things will be. Be positive. Would it have really helped if he told everyone to hunker down, don’t go out, don’t , don’t, don’t? Does it really help now? EVERYONE is still learning about COVID and most realistic scientists acknowledge that it will not just disappear or be beaten.
Our economy would have collapsed as many have, with little hope to pull it back up for many years to come. How many would die/suffer from a severe depression with our dependence on mega farms, high density populations, reliance on electric and gas utilities and general inability to fend for ourselves? Should we throw up our hands in despair or should he lead with positive encouragement?
