Iron Sharpening Iron

Personally, I have my doubts about the veracity.

But, if it’s true, then all I can say is this:

There were people in his immediate daily orbit right there in his own White House and in his Cabinet who were advising him that this was the wrong way to go. But he ignored all them, because he thought that the guy he ultimately paid so much attention to and sourced so much of his administration to had some sort of special political juju only because he happened to share a bed with his daughter.

So no, in this matter, it wasn’t bad advice, it was a bad advisee.

Writing on what is American Father’s Day, you all know that I have officially been a father-in-law’s son-in-law since March 7, 2020. He’s the best father-in-law a guy could have, and, when I compare him to what I thought in my younger years would be the perfect father-in-law, he comes so close to it that the odds that there’s someone closer are infinitesimally low. (I think the same about the better half, vis-a-vis what I always imagined to be my ideal wife.) That said, neither one of us believe that the other is infallible only because a woman that one fathered is the same that the other married. And, save one game, he is batting a thousand against me in chess. Our relationship is best described as iron sharpening iron, bidirectionally.

I don’t doubt the veracity of Trump using the “devil made me do it” excuse.

It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
