Into the Wild Blue yonder!

Yeah, I know the election is over but I can’t resist. Obama just cannot let a day go by without hopping on Air Force One and going someplace. Now, he’s off to Europe and then South America. Maybe he’ll do the Tango again in Argentina. That will be fun to watch. Since his first world wide trip was to apologize for America to every raghead and radical in the world maybe this time he could apologize for fucking our country for the last 8 years. Nah…I don’t think we could be that lucky. I know the crew of that poor airplane can’t wait for Trump to get into office so they can get one day off! I hope somebody will compute the costs of Obama using that 747 every day for 8 years. We could buy a couple dozen congressmen for what he has cost the taxpayers.

Donald Trump’s biggest problem is not Obama, who has graciously decided to stay in D.C. so that he can appear on all the biased Sunday TV shows and bad mouth what Trump will be trying to do. He has to protect his “legacy,” of course. “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor,” you know how that legacy goes. It’s called, “If my lips are moving, you know I’m lying.” Which reminds me – what are they going to put in the Obama Presidential Library? He has a phony birth certificate and the SS card of a dead person from Connecticut and all of his school and personal records are sealed. I guess he will just have lots of pictures of himself, which I’m sure will suit him fine.

No, Obama won’t be the problem – getting congress to do some work for a change will be Trump’s biggest challenge. Congress only works from Tuesday through Thursday, and Trump works seven days a week. And then Congress has to take “recess” every few weeks, and then they are “off for the holidays” from Thanksgiving through the New Year. And then there is their spring break and their summer break and their fall break and their winter break. Well, it’s tough having to work three days a week. What if you had to listen to John McCain whine for three straight days? You’d need MORE than Friday through Monday to get over that.

I can s see it now. Trump is in his office from Monday through Sunday and he’s calling Congress on Friday , Saturday, Sunday, and Monday, but nobody answers. Finally, one of the interns picks up the phone and says, “Sorry, Mr. President, but Congress is just too tired to show up for a real work week like those stupid people who are trying to pay their bills. Congressmen are really special, you know, and deserve special treatment.”

Good luck, President Trump.
