I was listening to an argument between two male friends about our Commander in Chief, more or less, playing the referee.
I didn’t participate, saying nothing, and saying it often, a handy tool when discussing politics.
One guy said, there’s no way Donald Trump will be reelected, while the other insisted that he would, and moi hates to say it, but alas, agrees with contest-ant number 2.
I kept that to myself while separating them like Ali and Frazier, suggesting perhaps we needed some immediate dessert.
I’m Italian and know, a little Pie al’a Mode could fix just about anything, even an election.
Personally I don’t think people care about the conduct of our leaders anymore.
Just take Bill Clinton and his oral history, if you will. There he was canoodling with a girl in the Oval, not much older than his daughter, lies about it, gets impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice, stays in office and is more popular now than ever.
Did you know he’s one of the highest paid people on the lecture circuit, gleaning anywhere from 250,000 to 500,000 dollars per speech?
I believe if he were to run for president again, he’d get reelected.
You know why? Because nobody really cares what he did. We live in a an all bets are off, world, and let the best rat win.
Now his wife, on the other hand, who doesn’t possess Bubba’s charm, well, we know what happened to her, the Trumpet blasting her right off the bandstand. Now if she had oral sex anywhere, we’d be more than happy for her. I’m just saying,
But back to my two middleweights.
As they yelled at each other, after gently suggesting they agree to disagree, which they totally didn’t agree with, I hailed a cab, got in it, leaving them on the corner, still fighting.
The downside of saying nothing and saying it often is, you more than likely will end up paying your own cab fare, along with your own pie.
Oh well, that’s showbiz. 😎
