No prosecution of Hillary. No mercy for the press. No denial of the White Nationalists. No denial of his million dollar investment in the company building the pipeline through Native Sacred lands....What a Thanksgiving!
The "transition" is waffling back and forth. Romney or not...Ben Carson or not...A woman?... a black? Who will be in his cabinet? He is totally enjoying all his power. Meanwhile he admits his charity broke the law. Meanwhile his wife will not be going with him to the White House until school is over. Meanwhile he is talking on unsecure phone lines to people all over the world.
He is against the wind farms in Scotland because they would hurt the view from his new resort there. He will never release his taxes, he will never create a blind trust for his businesses. He will make as much money as he can for himself telling everyone that he is working for the people. The people still love him.
They like how he belittles the press. They like how Presidential he looks. They like that he is not taking a salary for his Presidential job. He is trying to create a diverse cabinet. It will be interesting to see who the final picks are. He will tweet and rally his way through the country and bypass the press all together. Yet he did meet with the New York Times finally today and held a press conference. Getting his message out and not flinching from the hard questions.
He is supporting Bannon as a nationalist and not a white nationalist. Is Nationalism good? I like globalism but with Merkel in peril in Germany, France on the brink of right wing take over and Turkey in extreme shackles the world is closing in to tribes again. Is America losing its first place role as the strongest country in the world?
We are in uncharted territory. A forty percent approval rating is not good for a new President elect. A million and a half more votes for Hillary make him look small. What kind of change is this that is coming? How can Romney work for him? I guess his style is to hire good people and then let them do the job. That is such a good way to run anything. Diversity and trust. Maybe he has a chance. Heaven help any who get in his way...and I didnt mention his name.
I went swimming at the big pool here in Pahoa and bought a turkey for ten dollars.
