MR. PRESIDENT, JUST LIKE MARY RICHARDS, YOU’VE GOT SPUNK. BUT LOU GRANT AND CHUCK SCHUMER HATE SPUNK!

So when draining swamps of terrorists, perhaps you shouldn’t lure innocent human beings into them first. I’ll Lou Grant you that!  Maybe a 48-hour no-fly-here notice would have been a preferable way to do it.

Still I’ll give President Trump a pass on this one.  He had terrorists in his crosshairs when he fired off that spunky executive order to stop people from seven terrorist-infested countries from entering the U.S.

Let’s face it, America, Trump might be a billionaire in private life, but he’s new on this job and maybe a tad hasty.  On the other hand, I think we Americans aren’t quite accustomed to a leader keeping his campaign promises with such mindboggling alacrity and spunk.

Maybe we’re still a little lulled by President Obama’s red lines melting in that Syrian sun.

No, I don’t believe it was Trump’s intention to order a full-out Muslim ban or immigrant ban when he barred people from just seven countries from entering the U.S. or he would have included many more countries with predominantly Muslim populations.

So kindly wipe that tear running down the cheek of Lady Liberty and excuse Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) for breaking down when emotionally vowing to fight President Trump’s executive order that blocked the entry of Syrian refugees and imposed a ban on travelers coming from several Muslim-majority countries.

“This order was mean-spirited and un-American,” the senator said as he fought back tears. “The

President wants people to believe that everyone’s a terrorist or a criminal who’s an immigrant. It’s not fair and it’s not right.”

But is that what Trump really wants?  I believe our President when he says he wants more effective vetting of immigrants, particularly those from counties steeped in terror.

So let’s give our President benefit of doubt even though his tactic for preventing terrorists from entering our beloved country may have unintentionally created chaos and vehement protests at airports throughout the country.  Or knowing Trump the showman, maybe it was intentional.

I’ll bet Obama dreamt of doing something like this, but lacked the spunk.   And I don’t care what Lou Grant once said to Mary Tyler Moore about spunk.  I like spunk and I think the world will see we mean business about controlling our borders and keeping terrorists the hell out.       TM

  1. It takes more common sense and decency than “spunk” to be the leader of the free world! Why is our spunk president imbracing dictator Putin who is a murder of innocent people? Why has Trump embraced the racist Breitbart thug, Steve Bannon? Should we be comfortable with an anti-Semite who believes who believes that seperation between people (races) is necessary for a “culture” to be preserved?

    We are known by the friends we embrace and the Ku Klux Klan and David Duke speak in glowing terms about Mr. Bannon.
