TRUMP’S FACE SAYS IT ALL
There it is for the world to see: Petulance. Discontent. Anger. Meanness. An unbroken movie-reel of negative, ugly emotions passing nonstop across his rounded visage . . . all overlaid by a shock of wrong-way hair, like a finger wagging at the world in disapproval.
Watch his expression as he talks. Trump never smiles, he frowns. He grimaces. Whatever the topic, his attitude his plain: he hasn’t shown up to do good, he’s there to get even. And heaven help the person or group who crosses him, or worse, gets in his way. Consider his pathway to fame . . . “The Apprentice.” There we see his darkest inner impulses, the tyrant who growls at hapless performers, “You’re fired!”
It’s no accident that he chose as his closest advisors two men named Steve, each with a personality reflective of the boss. Steve Miller and Steve Bannon. Bannon is well known for his predilection for control, for conflict, for destruction—possibly translated as a desire to go to war. Bannon is now seen as Trump’s Svengali. In fact, a recent New York Times editorial referred to him as “The de facto president.”
Lately, Trump is re-thinking his decision to give Bannon such a large role on our country’s vital Security Council.
Less well known is Steve Miller . . . though it happens our family is privy to some inside information. One of our good friends, a renowned teacher, had occasion recently to discuss Steve Miller with the teacher who taught him in high school. “Steve Miller is brilliant,” that teacher reports. “But he’s also scary.”
Here’s a prediction: more and more people will come to regret voting for America’s face to the world . . . that ongoing expression of dyspepsia, irritation, even fury. All reflecting his dawning realization that most of his pre-election promises will never be realized. (Only his idol, Putin, has such power.)
It must now be clear, even to Trump: he’s got the whole world to contend with. This isn’t a business he’s leading, it’s a government—with three independent branches, two of which are mostly beyond his control. What a shock it must be, the final realization he will never be King.
Here’s one book you can judge by its cover: THE TRUMP PRESIDENCY.
