    America Made Great

    DeploraBall was epic. Protesters yelling 'Nazi Lovers' on the way in....I should say, that's the nicest term I heard from the crowd, the other profanity, extreme language, hysterical blatherings I heard cannot be repeated in public and I wouldn't give them a platform on my posts. Remarks directed at the women at this Ball by male protestors where meant to be offensive, didn't affect the night, got some great pictures

    Our Trump flag and Trump hats resulted in plenty of reactions. Most wanted to share pics, we had some vile language directed at us as well, but y'll know your Uncle Ransom often wears such criticism like a badge of honor. Witnessed the protests off F street after Lunch at Bobby Vans Steakhouse.

    I did think about my tpf friends. Thought about how I had just went through a campaign of grief coming from Observers here. That Donald Trump said this about women and said that about Muslims...and some Observers here on this forum acted all offended, just were "outraged" and just so bent up over such locker room talk from Trump. Those using obscenities Thursday and Friday no doubt just as offended by Trump.....and they talk with a mouth you wouldn't kiss your mother with.

    Reiterated my learned lesson that many folk.....including many Observers to this thread...pretend to be outraged, fake being offended....it's about a political agenda, not their sense of what is right or wrong.

    Protesters were not running for President. There is a difference. Who cares if Joe Blow makes misogynistic statements if he has no power to change one's life? Who cares if Jane Doe has the vocabulary of a stevedore? Her vulgarity has no national effect.

    People do care when it comes from the mouth of the man who was a candidate for President and has become the effective leader of the first world. Trump needs to reach out to all of those people that he alienated with his election rhetoric and apologize for those statements that have given the impression that he is a human anachronism - a throwback to a time when women and minorities had to fight to receive the same rights as the white male has enjoyed. If he doesn't mend these fences, he will be reviled, unlike any President in history. People will go out of their way to stack Congress and the Senate against him - in fact, they will go out of their way to stack every level of government against him. Those people who perhaps didn't vote in the national election will vote to neutralize Donald Trump. Movements are underway. Those massive protests of women and even men were not seen under Obama. In fact, I don't remember seeing such protests under any other Presidency.

    Trump may well be a catalyst for change, but if that change is to be constructive and not just reactive and destructive, he will have to make amends and he needs to do it sooner than later. Sadly, the only thing that Trump has commented on is not the millions protesting, but that the media has suggested that the crowds at his inauguration was smaller than at Obama's. Once again, it's only about his ego. Any other President would have issued words of assurance to the protesters and ignored such a petty issue as fans at the inauguration. He is President now and yet he is still telegraphing his own insecurity about his popularity.

    That statement by Hillary was likely the largest factor in her poor electoral college showing.

    You should have gone to the inauguration Uncle Ransom.

    He could have used one more warm body when Obama outnumbered him in '09 by quadruple and Women's March today nailed him by 20x.

    Sad you wasted your time like that!

    I did go to the Inaug, Bo. Blue tickets. Witnessed the swearing in.....a great speech from President Trump. Then watched the last scenes of Obama leaving. Security was too tight. Checkpoints to both get onto the ticketed areas, even general viewing on the mall. An the parade route....requited an entirely different checkpoint. We dined at Bobby Vans and then cut down to Pennsylvania....saw the President albeit from afar.

    Great day. Great country.

    I caught clips of the day later. I find it hard to sit still through long stretches watching the telly so I looked for the highlights afterward.

    I thought the exchange on the steps between the Obamas and the Trumps was nice. Loved Melania's outfit, very Jackie O. And Michelle looked very classy, too. I wonder what was in that Tiffany's box?

    I thought all parties acted with class and hope that sets the stage for the weeks and months to come.
