There are a few subjects I try to avoid in my posts, and politics is one.
I have an opinion of course, but that’s all it is, though there are some things that get my back up under the guise of ‘policy’ and I stand on my blogging soap box and rant.
Naturally American Politics has had the media in a frenzy, and I have been reading with interest posts favouring both sides.
All I can say is I’m glad I’m not an American voter, as it seems to have been a question of voting for who you dislike the least.
Some people on social media are now blaming President-elect Trump for the wet weather the UK is currently being subjected to as well as the pitfalls of Brexit.
That’s almost as good as a customer using 9/11 as an excuse not to settle her account when I was in Credit Control (she had no connection whatsoever to the US, let alone the Twin Towers). I am not being flippant here, as I was working for an American Bank in the UK at the time, and was as sickened and shocked at those events as the next person.
When Hillary was First Lady (1993-2001), I can remember thinking that I wouldn’t be surprised if she were to become the first Woman to hold Office in the White House.
Her husband had let her down BIG TIME, but she stood by him as he lied about his relationship with Monica Lewinsky, so when she was running for the Presidency, all I could think of were the lies and deceit all those years ago. Mud sticks.
On the other hand, I reckon there are a lot of very nervous Big Wigs across the pond expecting their marching orders when Mr Trump moves in to Pennsylvania Avenue in January.
I can already see the headlines.Living in a Goldfish Bowl, be it white or whitewashed, Mr Trump can play to, and work, a crowd.
