Say Something Positive About Trump

I admit, I am one of the leaders of piling on the anti-Trump, exceeded only by you-know-who. Reflecting on this, I thought it might be nice to note areas where I agree or admire our president. Here are two:

1. He disagrees with the generals who want to push on in the war in Afghanistan. I am with Trump. It is a losing cause. We should just get out of there.

2. He might cause Journey to break up.

It takes a lot of balls to play golf the way Trump does it.

He's on vacation.

Thanks to Trump, I now think kindlier of our Latin American neighbors. In the old days, when listening to the news about the unrest in Venezuela, I would think "Stupid banana republic. Why do they let themselves be governed by a strongman who spits on their constitution?" But now I understand and have empathy.

Who else besides Trump could take us from Dr. Strangelove one day to Jim Crow the next?

So much for No. 1.

I guess I can still hope that Journey breaks up.

I applaud President Trump for siding with the Democrats to increase the debt ceiling while passing a spending bill for the next three months:

https://www.washingtonpos...story.html

With the federal government poised to spend billions on hurricane relief, and a second hurricane on its way, now is not the time to quibble about the deficit, as some in the Freedom Caucus want to do.

Speaking of hurricanes, anyone see that that pill-popping blowhard Rush Limbaugh thinks that Hurricane Irma is fake news? Because no one can forecast a hurricane that far in advance! Why, if you believe in weather forecasting and meteorology, that only leads down the slippery slope to believing in global warming!

If a whack job like Daniel K. Allen is turning against him, then maybe Trump is doing something right.
