Good Day World!
I'm about to eat crow.
Anyone who has ever visited this blog knows that I loath Trump. That hasn't changed.
But, I saw something yesterday that stunned me...Trump was actually acting presidential (he does after all belong to the actor's guild) before a bipartisan gathering on gun safety with Congressional lawmakers at the White House.
His stunning ignorance on the subject wasn't nearly as surprising as the stand he was taking about having to do something...anything to pass gun safety measures.
As hard as it is for me to believe, Trump may become the first president to enact gun safety laws since the early eighties!
You could have pushed me over with a feather when Trump said this about the NRA;
"They have great power over you people (referring to Congress). They have less power over me."
Some lawmakers are "petrified of the NRA. You can't be petrified..."
Mind you, this is coming from the guy who got $30 million in donations from the NRA during his presidential campaign.
Trump praised the NRA, but said that he doesn't always agree with them.
When I got up from the floor, I steadied myself with one hand on the TV, and asked out loud...who is this guy?
Trump gave an academy award presentation on why gun safety laws have to be enacted now...not later. It gave me goose bumps.
I'm actually considering looking up old Apprentice shows to see if he's ever demonstrated the same capacity to sound...dare I say it?
Sane! Or, at least Oscar worthy.
When Trump warned the Republicans, "If you add concealed carry (reciprocity) to this, you'll never get it passed. We want to get something done," I almost swooned!
He also said he wanted it all done in one bill. Who would of guessed?
You know what? It's five o'clock somewhere, and I need a drink.
Time for me to walk on down the road...
