Biggest takeaways from last night. We are left drooling at the possibilities for a TRUMP administration and cabinet. What do you guys think?
1. Trump’s website was up and running in 24 hours – so much for the Obamacare website.
2. I admit it; I love the Trump plane. Our man arrived like the Pope delivering the Peace Treaty for 3000 years of Middle East discord (Scarborough).
3. I love the fact that Trump can call friends and say – “Give me a million dollars. It’s a worthy cause. Trust me.”, AND they do. These men are NOT fools and they know exactly who Trump is and his reputation over decades. It speaks volumes to those in the business community because on a smaller level, we’ve all done the same thing. On another level, every mom in the world can identify with Trump. We all know the reliable people to call when we have to do a band fund-raiser, a church bake sale, or raise money for boy scouts.
4. The visual of Trump, Huckabee and Santorum hit me like an earthquake. It was like loooking at the face of THE NEW GOP. It gave me hope. Is it possible, with Trump, that we could have a cabinet who is beyond the influence of big donors? Even Tyson Chicken?
5. I loved the story of another donor, successful businessman with whom we should “never play poker because he always wins – he’s the guy for China”. The story again, speaks volumes. Trump does not just “know of” these people; Trump plays poker with them. Trump in a self-depricating way, admits the guy is better than Trump is AND Trump wants THAT guy working on behalf of the American people. I was nodding, yeah, I want that guy, too. Why DON’T we have THAT guy now?
6. I loved the fact that rich guys were on stage, combined with smaller individual donors on-line. I was a GOB-Smack (as Sundance would say) to any in the Occupy Democrats movement. Rich people are not evil. Rich people get things done. We need rich people. We need everyone to straighten out the country. Time to get rid of the Obama “gray cloud” of name-calling, cut the BS, and get it done.
7. Having John Wayne Walding, born in Texas on July 4th, Special Ops Green Beret, to speak for 20 minutes was “everything” and he made me cry. I never cry. Watching that man, with one leg, tell a story of worry about when he came home, and how he was going to provide for his family, and how dependable veterans are,…. and all he wanted was a “thank-you”. Dear Lord, I am crying again as I type this. It made my heart swell with pride. The Honor Ring presentation, to be worn on a trigger finger, made me cry all over again. I never cry – so much for that premise.
And then, we all cheered.
