President-elect Trump on election night.

Trump on election night.

ISN’T IT TIME we all stop whining about what a bad guy Donald Trump is?

melcolhed-sep2016Every time his name is mentioned, it seems, we must remind each other that he is a name caller, a school yard bully, an egoist, narcissist, misogynist, chauvinist braggart who makes fun of handicapped people.

    It is interesting to me that many pundits and most mainstream media have written the Trump presidency off as a complete failure pre-inauguration. He will have his chance, and history, the American people, and the rest of the world will judge the effectiveness of his presidency. For the record, I am not a big fan of Mr. Trump, but Barack Obama has been no bargain as President either, nor, I believe, would Hillary Clinton have been. In Canada, Prime Minister-elect Trudeau was treated by mainstream media, almost to the point of embarrassment, like a knight in shining armour riding in to save Canada from the evil Harper hordes. Maybe not so much. In the face of rising unemployment, stagnant manufacturing, a forecast of a weak economy for the foreseeable future (one forecast pegs it until 2050 if current fiscal policy is maintained), an unnecessary and punitive carbon tax forced on the Provinces, particularly the Western provinces, and an operating deficit conservatively estimated at an unsustainable $30 billion annually, the love affair was premature, and the honeymoon has gone on for far too long.
