New York (Storch Report) — You might wonder what behaving presidential sounds like and furthermore what it looks like.
There’s a lot of presidential talk going on these days since Donald Trump has been running for president.
He even promised in the past few days that he was going to become more presidential, but a few hours after he declared this he called his GOP opponent ‘lying Ted Cruz’ and his potential Dem opponent ‘crooked Hillary.’
You can take the kid out of New York but you can’t take New York out of the kid.
And, I suppose you can transplant a woman from Arkansas to New York but you can’t make her anything but a carpet bagger, hardly a New Yorker.
Well,where does this leave us on making someone look presidential?
The image I might paint for one to consider under today’s criteria for looking and behaving politically presidential might be two candidates sucking on a silver spoon, having attending an Ivy League school and selecting their couturier from a house of clothiers the likes of Brooks Brothers.
Well, so far the contest looks like a draw. Hillary went to Harvard, Donald went to the U of Pennsylvania, both Ivy League schools and both were, and are rich and fit the looks described although with more modern day couturiers.
However, this is where they part paths.
Hillary has been deemed by a nation to be untrustworthy and a ‘crook,’ which the Donald picked up on short of being criminal so far while the Donald has been declared non-presidential.
After 8 years of Obama, the most polarizing President of our times, largely due to his divisiveness, condensation and arrogance we are going through the most difficult and dangerous period of our times both domestically and internationally. All of which Hillary supports and supported as his Secretary of State through the decisions she concurred with in Libya and Benghazi.
Obama has been slick, knows how to handle a teleprompter, — often fails without one — delivers policies he can’t uphold, delivers lies, much like Hillary, and has spent 8 years apologizing for America’s successes. He seems to be more representative of the Middle East, than the US.
Trump has hired a speech writer, said he was going to begin using a teleprompter which would, along with the speech writer, allow him to deliver more messages of substance than he has in the past.
This would certainly allow him to continue to inject his own adlibs within the canned speech to maintain his persona.
To change the Donald’s personality would be impossible. He must be who he is.
You can’t make someone into something they are not.
People like his straight talk, let it flow, with a bit of Ivy League presidentialism.
