A Little Advice for “45”

In Uncategorized on March 4, 2017 at 1:39 pm


It’s March. 45 has been in office for over a month now. He even addressed Congress this week, which apparently went over very well with the press. He was actually accused of being “Presidential.” I didn’t watch for the first time in 20 years, mostly because I didn’t want to spend an hour crying and yelling at the TV. In the long run, nothing that he said in his speech will make a difference. After all, he’s not known for remember what he said yesterday.

What else happened in the Executive branch this week? 45’s Attorney General was caught lying to the Congress during his confirmation hearing. Or as 45’s spokespeople would say…he just forgot stuff. Because of this, and to divert attention from calls for his resignation, Sessions recused himself from any investigations into Russian meddling into the 2016 elections. Thanks Jeff!

45 also accused his Generals for problems with his “successful” commando raid in Yemen in January. Apparently he had no control over the situation. Or no one told him things were happening. Or maybe his excuse was that the Generals have taken control. Who knows. We do know that the buck does not stop with him, it gets thrown back at the closest target. Not his fault. Ever!

Today, to cap off the week, 45 decided that the previous administration tapped his phones. Not sure why that came up other than to distract us from whatever horrible thing he as planned for today.

So at the end of this eventful week, I thought I’d throw out a little advice for 45. Just a few things off the top of my head that may make next week go a little more smoothly.

  1. Spend more time governing and learning about stuff. If you spent as much time accusing people of of doing things to you (fake news) or discussing people that you really should care about at this point in your career (can you say Hillary), maybe your administration would run better.  How about maybe spending more than 5 minutes in your security briefings?
  2. Stop Twittering, eat better, and get more sleep. Given your paranoid statements over the past few weeks, you might want to put down the phone, eat a salad every once in a while and get 8 hours of sleep. It will do us all good.
  3. When you open your mouth, try telling the truth at least 50% of the time. This would be an improvement over your 25% truth records of late.
  4. To go along with #3, try reading a newspaper that isn’t Breitbart. Your hometown paper, New York Times, is very good. I read it myself. Or the Washington Post has excellent coverage too!  They found out about your Attorney General this week. Oh, and maybe watch something other than Fox News. CSPAN is informative, if you don’t like the other major stations.
  5. Do a better job vetting your staff. So far, you’re not doing a great job.
