I well understand the frustration that Americans feel with Obama and with Congress. I feel the same frustration. I also know from history that whenever there is a vacuum of leadership, someone will fill that void; and when people get to the desperation level where they feel they have no control, they will latch on to anyone who appears to offer them that leadership.
Remember that Obama promised Change, and the public latched on to him. Obama has certainly brought Change – in fact so much Change that the Great American Way is becoming almost unrecognizable!
Donald Trump has used the same approach by resoundingly convincing people that he will bring Change, and he has wisely chosen the areas in which a large percentage of Americans desperately want Change such as unlawful immigration and the disastrous deal with Iran.
Trump, who knows he must lean to the right to get elected in the Primaries, has even gone so far as to name conservatives Trey Gowdy as his Attorney General and Sarah Palin to serve in some official capacity in a Trump administration. Would he really follow through on these appointments if he ended up in the White House?
Of course, we must also remember that Donald Trump floated Oprah Winfrey (a New Age spiritualist) as his possible Vice President back in 1999 when he was considering a run for President as a member of the Reform Party. He justified his choice by saying that she was talented and was a friend of his — as if that qualifies a person to be Vice President who is a heartbeat away from the Presidency.
Donald Trump has also stated that Bill Clinton is his favorite President. What does this say about Trump’s judgment when he excuses the philandering and disrespectful way that Bill Clinton has treated multiple women? How could Trump possibly heap praise on Bill Clinton who is involved up to the gills with possible corruption at The Clinton Foundation and its questionable practices?
