Lessons about Unity

Everybody was invited to the farewell. The GOP politicians who spoke out against him. Check. The people that he fired. Check. Even a guy who worked for him for ten days. You could even bring your friends or family.

Words mean things

Trump used the word “love”. And “thank you”. Even “thank you very much”. He even thanked Mike Pence even though he ̶b̶l̶a̶m̶e̶d̶….. Let’s just say that if Mike Pence had granted Trump’s wish, there would be no farewell event on the 20th of January. It is a mystery why Pence chose to attend Biden’s inauguration instead. Could Mike Pence be a fan of Lady Gaga?

Say it loud

I am not talking about the 21 gun salute that Trump wanted. Trump used the word “We” when he spoke about the accomplishments in his administrations. He even promised, “I will always fight for you”. That is probably why Pence had to attend Armed Forces farewell tribute in Trump’s place. Trump was often having executive time. Many calls and many meetings.
