The President of the United States of America!

Just to be perfectly clear, here…

My blog headline refers to President Barack Obama and ONLY President Barack Obama!

How great it is to, once again, hear from the Real President! His eloquence! His lucidity! His heady, heartfelt sentiments!

To best set up this clip…

Brian Tyler Cohen’s spot-on op-ed piece brilliantly juxtaposes clips of President Obama and the fake prez.

My brief op-ed…

DJT speaks of “flavor”? In actuality, “flavor” better describes that egomaniac’s (damned near always) in bad taste remarks. Remember, Cohen’s featured Trumpian extract is from a Coronavirus Task Force briefing… a governmental gathering that’s supposed to calm and reassure economically stricken and pandemic sickened people… to express heartfelt condolences to the hundreds of thousands of grieving families, worldwide.

When confronted by journalists’ questions… e.g. re campaign rallies… a Real President would’ve [1] graciously pointed out that this was not the venue to be discussing politics and [2] would’ve pointedly requested that all reporters stay focused on this ongoing, international crisis. Alas… that’s not what happened.

All I can add is…

Compare and contrast Obama’s compelling train of thought to Trump’s, insufferable, off the rails twaddle!
