Did Obama Push Too Far? I Believe “President Trump” Is The Answer.

“Maybe we pushed too far,” said Mr. Obama according to Ben Rhodes upcoming book.

I think you can put the answer to that down as a “yes.”

I would like to wish Ben Rhodes success with his new book. Because who deserves success more than a failed novelist turned national security advisor who decided to write historical fiction instead?

Hopefully it will compensate for his failure as a writer of fiction. Maybe it will also make up for his failures in the field of international arts and as a practitioner of domestic political prosecution. Who knows, if he had been better at his job…

Rhodes strategized and ran the successful Iran-deal messaging campaign, helped negotiate the opening of American relations with Cuba after a hiatus of more than 50 years and has been a co-writer of all of Obama’s major foreign-policy speeches.

maybe his (former) boss would have succeeded in fundamentally transforming America.

So I drink to Ben’s previous failures and offer for your Friday pleasure this month’s first installment of schadenfreude. Laugh till you cry.
