The clip of President Trump with former Presidents at the funeral is getting a lot of play.
It was an awkward situation for sure, as Trump was sat down next to the Obamas and the Clintons, but Trump played it ultra-alpha. You can see from the body language who was the uncomfortable one.
Obama had his legs and arms crossed (closed-body, protection mode) while Trump had neither crossed (open-body, confident mode). Part of that is Trump’s generally aggressive nature vs. Obama trying to pretend to be some kind of dignified Anglo who had an unfortunate fall into a tar pit. I guess. But the optics of it were very clear.
I feel strongly that Trump did a very good job.
In fact, I think he did a good job through this whole ordeal.
I am not one to argue that the President needs to be “more presidential.” And I am against those arguments. However, this was a case of a death that the Democrats and the Jew media were trying to politicize and not getting dirty with all of that was a good, adult move.
In fact, I am happy with everything the President is doing. No joke. And I really do believe that he isn’t able to do any more than he is doing. I think it’s extremely frustrating – almost overwhelmingly at times – that he isn’t able to do more, but that just is what it is. I don’t know what to really even say about it.
