What could be a better symbol of our do-nothing, know-nothing, wimpy, whiny, overweight president than this cover of Newsweek? It captures our Commander in Chief in all his gory: sullen, bitter, inert and alone. Here he sits with his overworked remote, unresolved angers and Nutsy Squirell*tie tuned into Fox News where Fox and Friends are his only friends. He began his presidency believing that the would be the greatest president of all. He saw cheering crowds, dozens of bridge openings, yes, even his image added to Mount Rushmore. Yet here he is during his first year, a flaccid, feckless failure. A pathetic incompetent who has to make frequent trips to the hinterland where gullible morons are assembled to cheer his every inanity.
*NOTE: Nutsy Squirrel is an antrhopomorphic character by DC Comics. As you can see Nutsy, like also nutsy Trump, wore his necktie ridiculously long. But one doesn't expect a cartoon to know better.
I am a retired copywriter. For 40 years I wrote for major agencies and developed some campaigns you would know. Like most writers, I love to give my opinion, and since I am so familiar with advertising this is the area I chose to comment on.
Actually I'm not that cranky. I am as fond
of as many things as I detest. But since most people only hear what one doesn't like, I might as well go with cranky.For my other blog idleideasfactory I am putting out there things I have written and ideas for books, screenplays, stage plays, and even products that I will not have time in life to follow through on. If
anyone can profit from them, be my guest.
