From Trump to Trunk…

Well, it’s been an eventful first month of 2017, hasn’t it?  Goodness me,  what a pickle…

I have to mention Mr Trump… it’s what the whole world is talking about.  Don’t worry, it’s not a big political speech, it’s just my very simple thoughts on the whole matter so far. Simple because I’m not a politician, I’m not knowledgeable about politics and I’m not in the United States so  I can only rely on the media reporting on the situation and from this I have to try to pull out honest facts and accurate information.  If the fact is not there, or information is based on what people have heard, or what’s happened in the past, or what they ‘suppose’  is going to happen,  I put it to one side.  Not because I don’t believe it, or because I disagree with it, but because I don’t have the evidence to trust if it is 100% accurate or ‘beyond reasonable doubt’.

Sounds simple, right?  Unfortunately, due to the way the media are behaving, it’s getting harder by the day to find out real, full and accurate facts about the situation.  I’ve read so many contradictory reports on the illegal immigration matter and the Sir Mo Farah dilemma etc –  which are true and false?  They’re all from respectable sources.  Plus there is so much, ‘he said this, she said that, they did this, this is what it’s going to be like…’, and so much name calling,  how can I form an accurate opinion on any of it?  The money and time that’s been spent on the whole, ‘was there a standing ovation?’, or, ‘was the crowd bigger than…’  Really?    ‘Mr Trump is a liar, liar, pants on fire,’ is the least of my concerns and seems so petty compared to the worries that are really at the forefront of our minds.  And there are many worries.

All of this is making a bad situation even worse, as are the horrible comments about his 10 year old son Barron… he’s a child for goodness sake!  He’s not responsible for what his father has said, or has done, or is planning to do.  He’s a 10 year old.  Comments like, ‘he needs to be slapped/punched in the face!’ – REALLY??  These are adults saying this, the same adults that are protesting for peace, anti-discrimination etc… Please, none of us want any of this, we all want the same thing, and that’s to live in a peaceful, loving world…

Anyway, that’s all I have to say about that… see, I told you I’m not very knowledgeable and that it’s a simple view on the situation so far.

In other news, well, it all seems so trivial to the Trump situation… so I’m not even going to talk about anything else until another post.  Until then, here’s some happy, positive and feel good videos starting with one involving a trunk rather than a Trump… we need some lightness in this ‘dark world’ we’re finding ourselves in at the moment.  I know it doesn’t change anything, but it offers a few minutes of respite…

Keep safe
