We are about to see a seismic change in our government. Barack Obama and Donald Trump are different in every way except for their gargantuan egos. Republicans in Congress now have real power. Democrats are on their own. You would think everyone would be focused on their changing role.
Instead, we are seeing a bunch of silliness and juvenile behavior. Trump is busy seeking political retribution against John Kasich and criticizing Meryl Streep’s acting ability. Republicans tried to gut the congressional ethics office and many are talking of repealing Obamacare without any idea what would replace it. Many Democrats are so full of hate that they will try to destroy his presidency without regard to what happens to the country.
My sincere hope is that the political silly season will come to an end and people will start to take their responsibilities more seriously. However, I’m not holding my breath waiting for this to happen.
