You already know the headlines. FBI Chief Comey says Trump wiretapping accusation against former President Obama is not true. Comey and the NSA chief confirm major investigation of possible links between Russia and Trump’s campaign.
The timing is horrible for Trump – just a few days before the RyanCare vote in the House, and during the rigorous week of testimony for his choice for the Supremes.
In a real-life look at the problems facing Trump is one clear reality. His tweets, exaggerated and dark statements, his inconsistencies, and his love for Russia while he burns up so many links with Allies, were all brought on by himself.
Whether you are pro or anti-Trump. Think about this. What would have happened if he could rewrite the immediate past. He starts his term on January 20th by stopping all accusatory tweeting. He follows State Department protocols. He simply goes about the business of governing, makes his views known, even through social media. He does not declare war on the intelligence agencies, and he tries to take some strong advice about just coping with the media. I mean, think about this. Donald Trump has made more enemies in his first several months than most politicians make in a lifetime.
Obviously, he can make his situation much better by reviewing his campaign promises. If the RyanCare plan goes through, he will have abandoned his supporters. Correct that. He will be enraging his base.
He can also bring peace to the warring factions in the White House, and stop blaming the Democrats, President Obama, The Mainstream Media, and the FBI, CIA, NSA and all the people trying to protect us.
Finally, he should have a conversation with his family and really close friends. He should stop watching only friendly news programs. He needs to read major stories from a variety of newspapers, Then he should meditate a little, and, after a thorough review of all of his actions, privately accept the blame for his falling approval ratings by taking a hard look in the mirror.
If he can’t control himself, we are in big trouble.
There’s a lot at stake. And we are the stakeholders.
