You Asked for It, You Got It...Donald Trump

If you, like me, are a child of the 70’s, this will ring a bell:

That little jingle wandered back into my brain this morning when I saw this tweet:


The emphasis, of course, has been placed on the highlighted portion.  Senator Marco Rubio rightly notes that “This President ran a very unconventional campaign…and in essence, this White House is not much different from the campaign. We — people got what they voted for; they elected him.”  Hillary’s win of the popular vote notwithstanding, Rubio’s point is well-taken, at least in response to those who voted for Trump, but now are expressing buyer’s remorse.

The rest of his quote is noteworthy, too, however — particularly for those in the Trumpskeptic™ camp. It is in the best interests of the country for him to succeed — in spite of himself, and even if it proves us wrong.  No, there hasn’t been the promised “pivot,” and there isn’t going to be.  As I tweeted recently:



There’s going to be drama and there are going to be issues unique to this White House that must be addressed.  And, as Rubio notes, the White House — and the country, by extension — would benefit from having “some systems in place that perhaps avoid some of the unnecessary friction points that come up on a daily basis.”

I’m not overly optimistic that we’ll see that happen. But no one would be happier than me to be wrong on that.
