It has been a year and a half since that shocking cool November evening in 2016 in which America was turned upside down, as Donald J. Trump defeated Hillary Clinton to become the 45th President of the United States.
We are now in the second year of President Trump's term. There are on-going trade negotiations with China, the Muller investigation, a summit with North Korea, deficits and debt as far as the nation can see, and yet the Clintons remain in the news. Like the movie Groundhog Day, we keep playing the same story over and over. Just this morning, Axios has a piece in which it states that the Clintons, "found themselves in the full force of the media spotlight." Why, America do we keep talking about the Clintons or the 2016 election? It's late May of 2018. Is no one or nothing else newsworthy?
Do not miss understand me. Bill Clinton is a former President and Hillary served as First Lady, a U.S. Senator, and Secretary of State. Therefore, they have every right, and the titles to bear, to make public appearances, give speeches, and use their platforms for various causes. I have no issue with that. I just have no idea why everytime they sneeze, the media has to write a story about them.
I had a college professor that once said, "there is no such thing as bad publicity. All publicity means you are being talked about." Maybe he was right in the sense that despite Hillary losing to a narcissistic reality TV star, at least she is still being featured.
That leads me to President Trump. Other than President Nixon, I do not recall any other previous Commander in Chief that could not get over an election or previous opponent in which they won. I have heard the term sore loser before, but we have someone in the White House who somehow became a sore winner. Even a three-year-old that cries for attention will stop if you give them want they want. Trump won and is still crying. Every time I think we are past crowd sizes, or wrong poll predictions, Trump keeps reminding anyone that has a Twitter account about 'Crooked Hillary.' Mr. President, please stop. You won, the people elected you. You do not have to be like a grown man that relives his high school glory days 30 years later.
This on-going race on who can become the biggest victim is coming from the Clintons that hung out at Trump's wedding and from a President that donated to the Clinton Foundation. We keep repeating the same story in a different verse. A little bit louder and a little bit worse. Wouldn't it be nice if our country could have a break from it all? President Clinton famously once said, "I can feel your pain." Apparently, President Trump, the Clintons, and the media do not feel mine.
