Well, the 2016 election is history now, and the winner has been decided. Come next January, barring some major catastrophe, Mr. Trump will become the
45th President of the United States.
Here are some pieces of advice that might make the situation better for everybody:
1) Don't pre-judge the man. Let him present his policies and address those policies based on what they are. To pre-judge his every move and motive
without any real evidence is short sighted and does nobody any good.
2) Don't have your senior Senator publicly declare that the only goal of the Democrats in the Senate is to have Trump be a one-term President. There
are real issues to be faced in this country and having the Senate be focused on only one thing is not in the country's best interest. Your Senators
have a job to do and they should be doing that job, not whining all the time.
3) Don't gather on inauguration day and establish an agreement to obstruct everything Trump does, without any regard to what he's trying to do. That
is plain stupid.
4) Let the man speak. He has a hard job and is required by law to present various pieces of information to the country, some of which has to happen at
a specific time. For crying out loud, let him speak and don't shout interruptions from the gallery. That is asinine behavior and makes you look like
5) He is human so will make mistakes, or he might promote policies you find distasteful. So you may want to criticize him. In that case, at least make
your criticism about something he has actually done. Don't just make stuff up and pretend it's real and repeat it ad nauseum. That makes you look
5a) There have been questions raised about his hair. Unless some actual real evidence comes along to provide at least some support for these
questions, don't act like they mean anything. Any nitwit can make stuff up and "raise a question" - that does not mean all such questions deserve
the breath to respond to them.
5b) There have been questions raised about his marital fidelity. Again, unless there is some evidence to support these questions, and unless these
questions have direct impact on the country, they are none of your business. His personal life remains his business, not yours.
6) Try to stay focused on what is relevant. He has not provided the customary reports of the details of his financial situation, and given that he is
an international business man, that information actually is relevant. If he has deep financial ties to groups like Daesh, we as his employers have the
right to know that. But try to stay out of the made-up gibberish. (And note - this item talking about possible ties to Daesh does not indicate
there are any such ties. That is made up for the purposes of this item. So don't spend any time on that.). Where he went to school as a child, or
what church he may or may not attend DOES NOT MATTER.
The country and the world is in for some interesting times. Who knows, maybe President Trump will not be so bad. But at least try to stay rooted in
some kind of actual reality when you criticize him. Otherwise, you will all look really stupid and petty and like a bunch of spoiled brats.
