I Call Your Name

By on November 12, 2018 in See It Here

President Trump has made a living with name-calling. It is juvenile, it achieves nothing–except in the name-caller’s mind and after it occurs, there’s an expectation the person who was called a name will fire back…which, is also juvenile. This can go for weeks, as we’ve all seen and heard.

Now some Americans think it’s cool when the Oval Office Occupant does stuff like this. It’s a good way to connect with followers. One problem: It’s the same as talking to yourself in the mirror. Nothing happens.

President Trump has tossed correspondent Jim Acosta’s White House media credentials in the trash can because Acosta wouldn’t back down in getting an answer about the migrant caravan that threatens our borders and security. The White House even doctored a video of the exchange to show how Acosta grabbed an intern who was trying to take the microphone away from him.

Some advice for the White House:

*Just turn down the microphone volume.

*Just don’t call on Acosta

*And don’t do a 90-minute news conference.

Everything  that occurred in the White House press room is, I hope, making America grate (again.)
