We all have our own thoughts, opinions, ideas – all of which we seemingly treasure as our own and unique, all of which come through what we decipher from family, friends, news and the world around us.
We all at one time or another like the opportunity to share those thoughts, opinions, ideas – you know let off some steam or maybe just to say ‘hey this is my opinion’.
That’s what ‘News View’ is about, an opportunity to take a few bits of current and/or more recent past news and putting our personal imprint and/or opinion on it.
So from somewhere nearly in the heart of the United States where views of news literally comes from television, the internet and yes even some newspapers and magazines (some of us still read them) – here comes a View of the News.
The News – Donald Trump has a way of doing things his way and for himself, many times without considering others requests or advice. He made a visit to the flooded area’s of Louisiana today to make good photo ops and look like he really cares while whining about President Obama and Hillary Clinton not taking the time to come visit the miss fortunate souls who have lost so much with the flooding.
The View – Okay, maybe Donald Trump truly means well in visiting Louisiana and I guess I can give him credit for that. But when he unloads on both President Obama and Hillary Clinton for not taking time out of their schedules to come and see the disaster in person, well then I have a problem with that.
Why do I have a major problem with it? Because the Governor of Louisiana specifically requested that the President and both Presidential nominees refrain from coming to Louisiana for at least another 10-days to two weeks because coming now would take too much time from the front-line responders to provide security details instead of doing what they need to be doing now which is secure the areas hardest hit by flooding and getting people rescued and help.
With Trump ignoring the Governor’s request it goes to show that Trump and his campaign continue to have a total disregard and working respect for any people of authority.
The photo opp of Trump being part of a line shuttling rescue supplies made me laugh as he obviously looked as if it was making him sick to be such labor, but yet he is quick with his negative comments about others.
By ignoring the Governor and his common sense request, it shows us a glimpse of what Trump may be like as President when a foreign government makes a request that Trump may not like – he will most likely go ahead an do what he wants to do because ‘he is the smartest guy in the room’. Maybe he need to look in the mirror and be more honest with himself, anybody that turns business after business into a business disaster can not possible the smartest person in the room.
By ignoring the Governor’s request Trump shows once again that in his heart and mind he is in it for one major purpose and one major purpose only, and that is to make him look good so he can once again pat himself and his ego on the back with every other sentence he uses.
Way too many will say that Trump stopping in Louisiana and throwing a few rescue items around is Presidential material, when in all reality it shows much more Presidential qualities to respect the request of the Governor in charge of the situation and hold back so the first responders do their job while making several calls daily to touch base with the Governor to keep up to the moment just how the process of rescue and recovery is doing.
So kudos to President Obama and Hillary Clinton for showing the respect and dignity needed for the folks in Louisiana while Trump once again just shows his true colors – it’s all about Trump.
You may agree or disagree with what I post – it is always your choice, but I do ask for those who are compelled to leave a comment, compliment or rant (and I do encourage folks to speak their peace), you must be respectful of those who may not agree and be willing to agree to disagree and walk away as friends and fellow citizens trying to take care of our grand country together. Those who are not respectful – well I will claim the right to dismiss those such individuals once they have been given the request to cease the lack of respectfulness.
So with that, for now from the very heart of this country we say aloha, shalom, prayers, blessings and get to know your views of the news – William & CrossDove Writer.
