Our President recently expressed shock when he discovered providing healthcare to 320 million people is complicated.
Except the President.
What an insult to every thinking, caring person on the planet! Everything is frigging complicated!
Relationships at work and at home — are complicated. Solving everyday problems — is complicated. Managing young children and old parents — is complicated.
Hasn’t Mr. Trump heard the rubric that everything takes twice as long as you expect? Why is that?
Because everything is complicated! Deciding what to make for dinner for four picky eaters can be annoyingly complex. It can require cooking more than one dish to satisfy everyone. That makes it a complex solution to a complicated problem, involving complex carbohydrates.
The bigger the decision, the more moving parts there are. On a national policy level, every action has consequences and these consequences give birth to another generation of consequences, and so on. The flow chart for anything will look like a spider web.
Someone who doesn’t understand the complexity of national issues should NOT be allowed to solve them! Apparently in Trump’s business world, he could just make a decision based on whatever he was feeling at the moment. Then his minions would scurry around and make it happen. Maybe that’s possible when you’re simply buying and selling things. Negotiate terms and price — and POOF! A deal. Easy peasy!
I find it impossible to believe anyone outside of a primitive village in the middle of nowhere could be so utterly clueless about how the world works today. It is mind-boggling that any sane or half-way intelligent human being could think that anything a government does for millions of people could be quick and easy.
Note the use of the terms ‘sane’ and halfway intelligent’.
Trump has consistently assured his followers that he has quick, easy solutions for every issue. I thought he was being cynical when he said that. That he was knowingly blowing smoke up his base’s collective ass.
I was wrong. He believed his own hype! He actually thought, “I can sit down and come up with the perfect solution for healthcare that all you bozos have been struggling over for the past 70 years. In a single sitting. On the first try!”
The good news? Someone finally got through to Trump. On something. They must have explained the governmental facts of life to him in some awkward, uncomfortable conversation. Was there a tantrum involved?
At least our President seems — for the moment — to understand at least some issues facing this country are incapable of a ‘quick fix.” Now let’s see how our fearless leader tackles the ’12 and over’ toys in his toy-chest. Lord help us all!
