Trump Is Different But Not Different Enough

Viva La Differance. This is America. The shining city on the hilltop. We are the place where huddled masses find comfort. We are the place where black, white, yellow, red, guy, girl, rich, poor, straight, or not-straight all legally, morally, and (more than any other country) actually created equal. We don't simply acknowlege being different either. We shout it out in football stadiums. We blast it out over concert speakers. We wear it everywhere from Skid Row (see what I did there?) to the boardroom, from construction sites to Congress. We don't do homogenus. And that gentle reader is why the Donald is your President.

He's different. His opponents were not different enough. They were birds of a feather who fell together (sorry couldn't help myself) because they were "Establishment". All of them were either career politicians who had been crooks and liars for years or they were different but not different enough. His final opponent was crushed because of the difference. She was blah, boring, dishonest, unaccomplished, and untrusted; by her own people. He was loud, brash, and made it a point to connect to everyone who was different fromt the typical Democrat Voter. And of course he is now vilified by the ones who missed what they thought was a date with destiny. Hell hath no fury like a Democrat Voter scorned. Just look at the ongoing riots and other violence.

Donald Trump has a max of eight years to parlay that difference into something worthy of the office. He needs to get on twitter and lose the #SnowFlakeTrigger tweets. Instead he needs to tweet out what is going on in real time. How about a tweet that says "Getting ready to Veto a Bill that infringes on 1st Amendment". Or a Facebook post that says "Congress wants to penalize Almond Growers and not admit that Almond Milk is a thing. #DairyLobby #CronyCapitalism". Or an Instagram of him signing an executive order telling the DEA & the DOJ to leave non-violent drug users alone. #MyBodyMyChoice right?

He needs to be more Presidential. His Bearing, discussed in my previous post, sucks. Now is the time to be more different than ever by acting like the no compromise grown up in the room. If he thinks that Obama wiretapped him then he should say it. Then, taking a cue from Ross Perot, he needs posterboard sized documentation intended to prove the allegation. When he says the press is against him he needs to substantiate it by quoting facts that defy the press to prove him wrong.

Trump has a golden opportunity make different cool again. Imagine that, a no nonsense POTUS that stands up for the Constitution, tells Congress to do it right, appoints Judges who will also care for the Constitution, keeps the American people reliably informed, and tells the world that we are a leader of nations and not an empire. Trump could break the lock of cookie cutter crooks and liars that parade in every two to four years for their time at the trough.

Right now though he's #NotGettingItDone.
