Why I Like President Trump!

Take A Mulligan

There, I said it! I feel better now. What a relief to finally get this off my chest. And since I've admitted I actually like President Trump, I can with full confidence tell you that I am not racist, I don't hate people who are not exactly like me, I actually like women, (I married one, have three daughters and two granddaughters). And not only that, I respect all people too!! I don't care if you are LBGTQ or XYMHFD or THMOPW. You are who you are and it is what it is. But enough of that, here is why I like President Trump....

HE IS GETTING THINGS DONE!!! Yes, capital letters. No one but his base cares to admit this but folks, it's true. You know it, you know it, you know it! Tough pill to swallow but "que sera, que sera."

Since the advent of the 24 hours a day national news bombarding us "ad nauseam," the media has controlled the country. They decide what is important and report to us exactly and only what they deem pertinent to our eyes and ears. The Media has/had the power to crush a politician. If some kind of verbal mistake was uttered, the Media ran with it forever until the politician apologized several times and their people had to explain over and over what was truly meant. Sometimes, the politician's career was over!! NOT SO WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP. He has no regard what the Media says or even thinks and folks, this is very, very, very disconcerting to the National News Media. Just listen to Morning Joe sometimes on MSNBC. He goes ballistic!! As do others. Fox News helped even the side a little bit but each side watches only their version of the events of the day.

I like President Trump because he is actually putting the United States first. What in the world is wrong with that???? You do the same in you family, don't you? You work, pay the bills, mow your lawn, buy your necessities in order to take care of your family....FIRST!! Then with any overflow you help others out, but you absolutely know that you gotta take care of you and yours first!! America, under President Trump, is returning to this way of thought. And rightly so!!!

Mr. Trump made many promises when he was campaigning and he is fulfilling those promises one by one. Or at least trying to. I didn't vote for him because he was the nicest guy in the world, I voted for him because I was tired of "professional politicians" worried more about being re-elected over and over again, rather than getting things done. Come hell or high water!! AND AGAIN, HE'S DOING EXACTLY WHAT I WAS HOPING HE WOULD DO.

I love the two Supreme Court Justices he nominated. I love that we now officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. And the world did not collapse when this happened. Unemployment is at unheard of low numbers, the economy is robust, (check your retirement account since two years ago), ISIS is surprisingly quiet these days, North Korea is wanting to talk with us....and the beat goes on.

Now please know...........THIS IS JUST MY OPINION. Not looking for an argument or anything like that.

Maybe a pat on the back but no hard hooks to the jaw. If you want, contact me at or call me at 319.327.4640.

Otherwise just Take a Mulligan. Have a great weekend.
