Mandate? You Talkin’ to Me? … About a Mandate?

A John Nichols piece in The Nation had the screaming subtitle “Trump may be the president-elect. But he has no mandate.” If one overlooks the fractured syntax and capitalization, one is left puzzled. A mandate? A mandate from the people to “rule?” Hello?

Since the federal government has ceased listening to the people who vote, why would this even be a subject of discussion? This is us wanting a President and Congress who listens to us before they ignore us and do what they want, instead of ignoring what we say in the first place?

How is lacking “a mandate” a deterrent to any new President? Bill Clinton had no mandate. George W. Bush had no mandate. Did you notice how timid those two were in trying to get their agendas across? No? Neither did I.

President Obama, now he had a mandate in 2008. Man, that mandate kept those Republicans from digging in their heels and saying “No way!” Right? No? I’m shocked; shocked, I tell you!

What President-elect gives a flying fuck about whether or not they have a mandate from the people, especially when they care not a fig for what we think? From day one, they are the President and the rest of you can go suck eggs. The President ain’t gonna defer to nobody, see. So shutupabouta a mandate or, well there could be an accident and it would be a shame that you coon’t use them kneecaps no more. (Presidents used to sic the IRS or the FBI on people they didn’t like. I expect President Trump to be more … direct.)

    You are correct Trump only cares about feeding his fucking ego, the rest of the world can go suck eggs. Great time to be an ass kisser I guess.
