THE DONALD . . . THE PRESIDENT


#MAKEAMERICAGREATAGAIN

This was Donald Trump's campaign slogan.
"The Donald," as he was known,
is quite the character.  He has been
around for 40 years or so.
Tycoon.
Real estate mogul.
Casino owner.
Owner of Miss USA and Miss Universe pageants.
Made appearances on tv shows and movies.
(My favorite...the rich kid's father on "Little Rascals.")
"The Apprentice" & "Celebrity Apprentice" host.
("Your Fired!")
US Presidential candidate.
US President.
Age 70.

Donald Trump had run for president before.
Part way through, he dropped out.
In 2015,
always a flair for the drama, 
he announced that he would run for president
in this manner:
Coming down the escalator of his hotel,
"Trump Tower,"
in New York City.

First, there was the campaign.  




Opponent:  Hillary Rodham Clinton
Former:
Secretary of State
US Senator from New York
First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS)
First Lady of Arkansas
Lawyer
Age 69.
(Low and behold, her birthday is October 26!
Same day as Pat Sajak, who spins the wheel on
Wheel of Fortune, and ME!!!)





It went on and on and on!
(When I was growing up, until maybe the mid-90's,
the candidates announces their candidacy in the
SAME year as the election...not 2 years ahead!)


Then, the debates.

The Democrats
Hillary vs. Bernie.

The Republicans
Donald, Jeb, Chris, Carly, Dr. Ben, Rick, Paul, etc.

So many, they filled the entire stage!

And the ugliest debates of all . . . Donald vs. Hillary!
(It looks like Hillary is thrilled that Donald is serenading her!)

Finally, Election Day . . . and voting.

("Is Melania voting for me?")

 The Concession Speech
and
the wearing of the purple.

OATH OF OFFICE FIRST

AMERICA'S CHOIR!
THE MORMON TABERNACLE CHOIR SANG
"AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL" BETWEEN THE
VICE PRESIDENT AND PRESIDENT'S OATHS.
THE FIRST PRESIDENTIAL INAUGURATION THAT
THE CHOIR PERFORMED AT WAS FOR
PRESIDENT ULYSSES S. GRANT!



AND THE RAIN . . .


DONALD TRUMP TAKES THE OATH OF OFFICE.
THE WIFE ALWAYS HOLDS THE BIBLE.
THE TOP ONE IS PRESIDENT TRUMP'S BIBLE
HE RECEIVED AS A BOY.
THE SECOND ONE IS ABRAHAM LINCOLN'S BIBLE.









THE PRESIDENT THEN GIVES AN INAUGURAL SPEECH.


WAIT.  WHAT???
I'M  NOT PRESIDENT???

THE HIGHLIGHT OF THE CEREMONY WASN'T
ADMINISTERING THE OATH OF OFFICE, THE MUSIC,
THE POLITICAL GUESTS, OR EVEN THE SPEECH.
IT WAS THIS:

PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH TRYING TO
PUT ON THE RAIN PONCHO!
(CHECK OUT HIS V.P., DICK CHENEY, SMIRKING
BEHIND HIM!)
