The Art of Division
When two brothers are busy fighting, an evil man can easily attack and rob their poor mother. Mankind should always stay united, standing shoulder to shoulder so evil can never cheat and divide them ~Suzy Kassem
America is going to have to get use to the style of Donald J Trump. We can scream and scream that he isn’t ‘my president’ but the fact is he is the President of the United States of America. No, he’s not your typical politician and he’ll never be a statesman. He is braggadocios, he cares about ratings, he has thin skin. But the biggest part of middle America likes him. He won via the electoral college — and he did because the fly-over states were sick & tired of politics as usual, sick of politicians and gridlock. That’s why Trump won! Blame politics
Whether Trump can overcome all this & produce during his term depends on America; if we stay in our echo chambers and scream past each other & rabidly resist this administration for the next 4 years like we have for the past 2 months — no we won’t see success. And it won’t only be a failure for this administration — but for this country. Why? Because the detrimental effects of prolonged division will be felt for decades to come. It can destroy us! The news media has opposing themes running concurrently. Conservative outlets are focused on leaks — the liberal media is focusing on Russia. We are so divided — and believe me! Division is never good…it leads to disastrous results.
The people Trump has surrounding himself with can make him a success. You might not agree with the ideology of this administration but remember you’ll have a vote to cast in 4 years. It’s time to come together. If for no other reason than for the sake of this country.
Trump is most powerful man in the free world. What can you do? Bitch, whine and resist and contribute further to the divisiveness of America. That’s all you’ve got. Trump will be in the White House for 4 years as President unless he ends up being impeached before his term is up. Granted, that’s possible. But if that happens you get Mike Pence. And you still have Trump’s cabinet and his Supreme Court picks.
Let’s not forget that many despised Obama. No one went to the streets though. And there’s one big difference now. The division in this country is very close to a tipping point .. so as for me — I refuse to contribute any further to that division. Rioting, protesting, resisting will not remove a president. It takes a much larger reason to impeach.
Let’s not forget half of America wants him
SALENA ZITO of Atlantic Magazine said, “the press takes Trump literally, but not seriously; his supporters take him seriously, but not literally.” Think about that. That is the best description I’ve heard. Trump is a lot of BS. So you don’t take him too literally. That’s his MO. But he’s what we have right now. Get over it!
