I went out for dinner yesterday and then stopped at a small club/sort of fraternal place for a drink. There are two brothers there that I know. Both of them are my age, give or take a year or so. I like them. They are nice folks. They both voted for Trump. I haven’t seen them since that vote.
The nightly news was on the big screen T.V.
One of the brothers started to talk to me about Trump’s idea that he won by HUGGGE margins and that there was widespread illegal voting. We ALL agreed that Trump should be quiet and that he won AND the fact that he can’t let it go doesn’t say good things about him.
Then we moved on to his Twitter yammering. One of the brothers wants someone, ANYONE to take his phone away. The other brother likes his Twitter use. He gave me the party line about new technology. I said it’s embarrassing and can be dangerous. He countered with something about plain speaking and refreshing. I said that I want a President that spoke and acted and thought Presidential. He told me that we HAD that for eight years (I don’t think he realized exactly what he admitted) and look where it got us???
Both brothers have pensions invested in the stock market and their bottom line is their own bank accounts but I can tell that one brother is beginning to let the term Buyer’s remorse creep into his mind.
I was just glad to be able to have a conversation about current affairs without rancor. It’s a start.
