“Unexpected kindness is the most powerful, least costly, and most underrated agent of human change.” — Bob Kerrey (1943- )
President Trump is a real person with very real feelings.
He’s not a politician, not an elected official, not a bureaucrat.
He’s got a big heart; ask anybody who knows him.
Strange as this sounds to say about a billionaire who was president, Trump is a regular guy with great manners, a super sense of humor and a keen ability — and get this, because it’s one of the reasons he became president — to be unconditionally with somebody when they are speaking to him. He makes you feel like you’re the only person in the world even in a room with 1,000 people.
I experienced this twice in the 1980s in New York when I attended his “Art of the Deal” book launch and a Wall Street event and he gifted me with two minutes of his personal attention, really listening to whatever minutiae I had to share with him.
And we have God Almighty to thank for these traits and for Donald Trump himself.
I’m a New Yorker too, just like Trump. And we recognize each other as human beings. In conversations with me, he always starts by asking how I am doing with my medical condition. He cares.
I can tell you with every fiber of my being that President Trump cares deeply about people he doesn’t know very well or at all.
He doesn’t know me well, I just came into his world recently. So, I’m blown away every time he shows this caring compassion to me, or to many others.
When President Trump shows up anywhere there’s strife, devastation, loss, grief and worry, he brings the strong sense that someone, anybody cares. And he does this anytime he’s needed, he never fails to come, bring help and attention and show love and concern to people who are hurting.
Even when others never do show up.
Pretty different from the general Marxist media caricature and political enemies smearing, huh?
It is in this context that yesterday President Trump visited East Palestine, Ohio.
His motorcade was greeted with long strands of admirers on the street — going through the worst crisis in their lives — yet thrilled to just offer their regards and see the man pass by.
This small, beleaguered town of middle America needed some recognition, some attention and some loving care.
These people needed help and Trump delivered.
His message of “You’re not forgotten. We stand with you, we pray for you,” is like manna from heaven for people needing help. And in return, the love they have for Trump is unbridled.
Everywhere this man goes he gets a hero’s welcome. If he sees a crowd of people chanting “Trump, Trump, Trump …” he makes a beeline for them, followed by scampering Secret Service agents, struggling to keep up.
In East Palestine, you can hear the people thanking him for coming, adding “you showed up before Biden did.” Laughter and smiles ensue because everybody loves meeting Trump.
And his mere presence alleviates a lot of the sadness and anger.
Honestly, it often makes a grown man cry,
Trump didn’t come alone, nope. He brought pallets and pallets (not small ones either) of drinking water. He brought food, vegetables, canned goods, and whatever would help.
When President Trump does something … he does it all the way.
When you hear whining ninnies smearing President Trump, just know where their sad little lives are coming from. “Forgive them, for they know not what they do.”
Personally, I have a hard time with forgiveness.
“Be kind, because everybody you meet is fighting a harder battle.” — Plato (428 or 424-348BC)
