The arrogance on display here by President Fuckhead is breathtaking.
But I would argue that it’s mock arrogance. Barack Obama knows that a President has leverage when it comes to domestic businesses. And yes, Barack Obama doesn’t have even a tiny fraction of Donald Trump’s business acumen. But that’s not the problem. The problem is that he doesn’t care.
And he wasn’t installed as President to care.
The President has a broad range of powers, some tangible and some intangible. The bully pulpit is an extremely powerful tool for a President, especially a Democrat President who has an entire horde of fake media ready to amplify his every word and desire. The President can work with a Governor of the state (if they’re on friendly terms) to keep a business inside the country. But the biggest hammer of all is Federal Contracts. We have a grotesquely inflated Federal workforce. Every one of their fat asses needs a chair, a desk, a computer and a building to work in. Buildings need air conditioners….
Make no mistake: This wasn’t some brilliant use of Trump’s business skills or a deft leveraging of relationships. He just gave a damn about some people in need and then did something about it.
