I cannot let this go, I saw it yesterday, and I had too much else going on. Fortunately, others saw it, too, and it is as ridiculous, and callous as one would come to expect.
This is going to be quick, to keep our stomachs down.
In a discussion involving the dangers of vaping, especially to young kids, middle and high school, Trump referenced why “the First Lady” cared so much about the issue. Trump said:
” She’s got a son together that is a—a beautiful young man. And she feels very, very strongly about it.”
Yes, the word “together” is in there, in a disjointed way, but the words “we,” “our” and “mine” are most certainly NOT.
I tried to imagine a situation in which I sat with my wife, discussing with others something concerning children and stating “She has a daughter …” I came up with nothing. Perhaps it is because “we” have a daughter, and “our” daughter is “our” greatest joy.
As Trevor Noah pointed out, even Darth Vader claimed his son, and cared deeply about the father-son bond they made a movie about it.
This president is our worst and most dangerous in many generations. But, even I have to admit, at times, the obliviousness and self-obsession prove to be entertaining. Not worth the price, but entertaining nonetheless.
