While people all around the world are coming to grips with the 2016 presidential election outcome, president-elect #Donald Trump could also be grappling with a harsh reality as well. First up, after promising his supporters he will “drain the swamp” of no-good Washington establishment peeps, Trump fills his team with them. Sounds more like a transference rather than a complete drain. Some anti-establishment folks probably did not realize Trump would have to do this. Trump also discovered that he cannot totally cut off Obamacare at the knees. Possessing a business background is fine and dandy but running a government operation is a whole ‘nother animal.
Trump’s routine will drastically change once in office. No more getting up at 5 a.m. to read numerous newspapers such as The New York Times or New York Post. The New York businessman won’t have time to sit around watching morning #News programs like he normally does. Now comes word that Trump is sort of itching to reside at the White House only on a part-time basis. Sources say Trump would prefer to be at the White House during the week but return to Trump Tower or his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida or New Jersey golf course on the weekends. Again, the job Trump applied for is President of the United States. Sometimes, you must work on the weekends.
Not surprising, there are also rumors that Donald Trump would like to continue with rallies and tweeting outbursts. One would have to be a visitor from another planet to not be able to even guess that Trump needs to hear the cheers and garner the attention of a crowd in order to thrive. However, the average commander-in-chief is often too busy putting out fires, working on solutions and fighting friend and foe on Capitol Hill.
You are not in Kansas anymore
Rest assured, it is obvious Donald Trump had or still has quite a few preconceived notions about what life is like at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The signs are already out there. Donald Trump, along with America and the rest of world, may be in for a very rude awakening but let us hope for the best. #politics
