State of the Union Address

It was the third longest State of the Union address, lasting 80 minutes, in which Trump touted his achievements and his goals. The man who seeks approval and can't handle criticism stood there like a pompous ass, in all his glory, as the world looked on.

He looked over at the throngs of spectators like a character in a film where he is king addressing his subjects - acknowledging Melania dressed in white - a standout in the crowd - but looking somber. She arrived alone. You either feel sorrow for her as Trump's wife yet reconcile it with the fact she is well compensated for the charade, much like the wife of a character in one of those movies from ancient times or perhaps from the future in another mythological world. When the camera is on Melanie she smiles and waves, but watch her expressions when she thinks the camera has moved away.

I fell asleep early as I don't believe anything politicians say nor do I buy into most conspiracy theories - just rhetoric. This morning I briefly watched some of the commentary. Whatever is going on behind the scenes, no matter how insane Trump's remarks and behavior, I don't see him impeached any time soon, if at all. Whoever put him in office has plans to keep him there for now - dossier, memo, or whatever it takes.

There have always been crazy world leaders but today everything gets highlighted due to technology and the ability to move stories and consciousness in a given direction to illicit reactions. You can play the games, be a spectator, or just let everything fall into place as programmed. I've lived long enough to know it's all a lie - no one can fix the issues in the games of emotions for there will always be new ones. Good luck Donald. Hope you get the job done without too much collateral damage.
