Older can be better

Donald Trump will be 70 years and seven months old when he is sworn into office on January 20th. He breaks the previous record held by Ronald Reagan who was 69 years old when he was sworn into office in 1981. I’m glad to see an older man holding the highest leadership position in America. Both my husband and I have faced age related discrimination in the job market. I blame Kennedy. Although one can be as young as 35 (the minimum age) and still qualify for the office of the president, John F. Kennedy is the youngest president sworn in at the age of 43. Our culture worships youth. Why? With age comes experience which, hopefully, begets wisdom.

This is a chart depicting the ages of presidents upon being sworn into office.

Those who control what we watch on television try desperately to control our thoughts on age. Recently, on a Family Feud episode, on the fast money round questions was; ‘What age is too old to be president?’ Seventy was the answer given and I believe it was the number one answer as well. How convenient that this particular question was asked at this particular time. More likely it was engineered to get people to question the viability of an older man such as, Donald Trump to run our country.

Some people, claim that, Trump is a dangerous hot head. I see a man who has displayed admirable calm in the face of egregious attacks against himself and his family. He is, after all, a man who as faced many such attacks over the years. He is used to being around crazies. He has been targeted just for being white, and successful. Hmmmm, what does that sound like? Racism & bigotry and it comes from the supposed ‘tolerant left’. Well, we all know they are only tolerant to those who hold their same views. Otherwise, they hold a collective, schoolyard bully mentality.

I, for one, look forward to having the stability of age and wisdom in the highest office in the land. I believe, President-elect Trump and his family will all show us what it truly means to be a great nation, and how ALL Americans can once again be proud of America.

God bless, president Trump, his family and those sworn to protect them all.

Haters keep hating despite lack of affect

Melania Trump is the most beautiful First Lady we have had in years. An elegant, well dressed woman with excellent manners and decorum. Whether or not she is in the White House, Melania IS a lady. There are, unfortunately, immature persons who do not like the fact that Donald Trump is our new president. These immature types are taking their bitter defeat out on anyone, even those who had nothing to do with the election. Recently, per an article from, The Daily Mail, Italian designer, Gabbana, of famed design duo Dulce and Gabbana wrote on Instagram¬†about his delight in seeing, Melania dressed in one of his fabulous gowns. See full article HERE. He was immediately attacked by the intolerant left for his joy because the subject of his delight did not meet with their childish need to control everyone around them. Their philosophy is, ‘if we don’t like them neither should you!’. What does that sound like to you? To me, it sounds like school yard bullies. For all the anti-bully campaigning going on across social media, there sure seems to be an awful lot of bullying going on toward, Donald Trump, his family and anyone else who dares to express their joy and delight over his winning the election, and really any subsequent support of him.

Blessed are the peace makers.

Melania looks amazing in her D&G sheath dress and, Mr. Gabbana is justified in being excited to see his work on such a beautiful and glamorous woman.
