Baring a war with China or a terrorist attack, the next 4 years will be anything but dull. The economy will must assuredly improve,how could it not? And the deficits will go higher,dang, but as I said before, Trump should just pull an Obama ($1.2 Trillion deficit the first year, then reduce it every year from there, some people will then call him fiscally responsible). And it looks like we all got head faked, just when he starts acting presidential, he breaks out his twitter feed and goes all Philistine on someone.
And too bad for us that we get someone as think skinned as Obama, why can’t he let anything slide.
So here’s the question, why is Trump so enraged by that clown Alec Baldwin impersonating him? We have touched on this briefly but he has got to know that his reactions feed the appeal. Baldwin, a has been actor who has anger issues, his career just got transformed because Trump can’t get off twitter.
First some SNL history, this was where it all started;
This was Chevy Chase doing Gerald Ford, and this was when SNL had real comedians who were actually funny. Chase, Belushi, Aykroyd, Curtain, Radner (Emily Litella was so awesome)Newman, Morris, young hungry actors plying their trades to get noticed. All Baldwin is known for lately is assaulting the paparazzi. But now that Trump took the bait, instant career boost.
I have to admit, some of these Trump skits are funny;
I can’t say that there are not folks out there, the uninformed voter who watches the late shows, Comedy Central or John Oliver, who can’t tell the difference between comedic satire and reality, and yeah, I get that with Trump sometimes the difference is razor thin. But as president, he has to ignore this and stay the course.
Maybe if he was more versed in history he would not get so upset. The political cartoon portraying Lincoln as a chimp, the names they called Jefferson, Adams, Jackson, this SNL stuff is minor league.
You know his handlers are telling him to knock it off (politely) but Trump probably views this as some sort of unfiltered bully pulpit, it’s only going to get worse.
