HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE, INCLUDING THE HATERS AND THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA! 2019 WILL BE A FANTASTIC YEAR FOR THOSE NOT SUFFERING FROM TRUMP DERANGEMENT SYNDROME. JUST CALM DOWN AND ENJOY THE RIDE, GREAT THINGS ARE HAPPENING FOR OUR COUNTRY!
That, right there, is Donald Trump’s new year’s message to the country he was elected to govern.
A couple of things strike me about the tweet that came off the president’s cell phone.
One is the use of all capital letters, which a tweet sender usually employees to express excitement, agitation or angst. Yet he tells us to “CALM DOWN AND ENJOY THE RIDE.”
The other thing is the apparent attempt at sounding magnanimous.
Trump offers new year’s greetings to the “HATERS AND THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA!”
I know he intends to aim that message at others, such as his critics and those who work for various media organizations. When I think just a little bit about it, though, I cannot get over the notion that the president himself is a “hater” and is the nation’s supreme purveyor of “fake news.”
Whatever. Happy new year to the president. I am betting that 2019 is going to ruffle a few more feathers.
As for “GREAT THINGS” happening, I must say that the greatest thing I can imagine for our great country will occur when Donald John Trump exits the Oval Office for the final time.
