It’s been one week since President Donald J. Trump was inaugurated and Barack Obama climbed aboard Air Force One to go on vacation.
And already, it’s as if Barack is nothing more than an insignificant blip on the radar.
Well, except in Hollywood and the offices of CNN and MSNBC.
But as far as the rest of the country is concerned, it’s “Barack who?”
This is what happens when you get a new President who wastes no time getting to work and cleaning up the mess left behind by the vacationing phantom.
In a month or so, Barack is going to be kicking himself for disappearing so quickly.
His desire to give Michelle that “much needed” vacation will end up being the biggest mistake he ever made.
Not that he’s thinking about it now while they enjoy leeching off Richard Branson on his private island.
But when he returns, he’ll discover that most of America has all but forgotten him.
“What? Has Barack gone? Huh. Hadn’t noticed. Now, what’s President Trump doing today to make America great again?!”
Barack is one of those people who only stays fresh in your mind because he won’t go away. Like an annoying gnat that continually flies in your face while you try to relax and read a book on the back deck.
Now that we’re rid of him, we’re just so damn happy not to have the annoyance, it’s a relief that he’s gone.
Meanwhile, President Trump is making his presence known every day – not by giving endless interviews and speeches, but by doing the job we sent him to Washington to do.
But let’s be honest. Even before he was inaugurated, Donald Trump easily upstaged Barack without even breaking a sweat.
And now that he’s President, Trump hasn’t just upstaged the man; he’s rendered him insignificant.
It isn’t surprising.
Donald Trump has done more in the last week than Barack Obama accomplished in eight years.
Barack is like a high calorie/low nutrient snack. Sure, he may have filled you up, but in an hour you’re starving and poking around the fridge for something else to eat.
On the other hand. Donald Trump is a five-course meal.
To use an American phrase my mother grew to love, he sticks to your ribs.
Turns out Obama’s “legacy” is about as permanent as an image on an Etch-a-Sketch.
And along comes Donald Trump who gives it one good shake, and the whole thing disappears like it was never there.
Hell, even President Trump’s signature upstages the chicken scratches left by Barack.
Wow. Talk about a visual aid defining the difference between Alpha and Beta males.
Let’s face it.
Donald Trump is larger-than-life.
He’s a presence that can’t be ignored.
Even those who despise him deeply are letting him live rent-free in their heads 24/7.
And without even trying, President Trump overshadows Barack like sun eclipses the moon.
I really think Barack Obama believes in his heart that America will be incapable of continuing without him.
And as he languishes on a private beach courtesy of a billionaire, not only do we continue, America is moving on as if he never even existed.
