Facing impeachment, the president strives to look hard at work

As Democrats in Congress push to impeach him, President Trump has toured a manufacturing plant in Texas, boasted about economic gains and signed numerous bills. He served turkey to U.S. troops in Afghanistan on Thanksgiving and grieved with the families of fallen service members at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware.

And next week, Trump is scheduled to jet to London to meet with European allies and be received at Buckingham Palace by Queen Elizabeth II.

Sure, Trump has been consumed by the impeachment proceedings, popping off daily, if not hourly, about what he dubs a hoax. But he and his aides also have staged photo opportunities and public events designed to showcase the president on the job a strategy one year out from the election to convince the American people that he is hard at work for them at the same time that Democrats are trying to remove him from office.

Im working my ass off, Trump told a thunderous rally crowd of roughly 20,000 on Tuesday night in Sunrise, Fla. He added: The failed Washington establishment is trying to stop me because Im fighting for you and because were winning. Its very simple.

Working hard my ass. From the photos I've seen, he's still got an enormous ass -- for someone working his ass off.

2. You bet...

Pretty big butt for somebody who's been working it off

People have noted that he mostly golfs, watches TV, tweets and chows down on junk, so this is merely posturing.

Trump is not a working man, he is a salesman who gets other people to do things and then stiffs them. He lived off of, and blew, Dad's bucks and went through a nice inheritance. Oh, wow!

3. if He met the troops where was his military jacket?

That was just bad staging. President Obama would have taken his jacket off, thrown his tie over his shoulder and rolled up his sleeves to serve the troops their Thanksgiving dinner.

President Obama would have also been mobbed by the troops.

Just saying...

4. LOOK hard at work. hence the lack of tee times.

if he wanted to BE hard at work, he'd do a formal press conference (LOL) and twist McConnell's turtle neck to move some bills through the Senate.

5. The struggle is real

Gotta get up....
Watch Fox & Friends preshow...
Call Hannity...
Call Tucker....
Watch more TV about me....
Maybe make official phone calls on my own phone....perfect calls...
Go to hair and makeup....
That stupid briefing....like THEY know as much as me...
Make an appearance downstairs.....
Go to lunch not sure who might be poisoning me....Vlad seemed cheery on the call this morning...
Staying in this non-gold house, have more meetings which aren't about me....
If I get to go somewhere, go out and yell at clouds with a helicopter nearby...
Finish up about 3 .....
nothing to do or anywhere to go....
No celebrities to hang out with....
Watch TV about ME....
Call Hannity and Tucker....
Wonder if Vlad's calling tonight....

9. Good video for the 2020 run.

Mr. pResident here,.. Mr. pResident there,..
Mr. pResident everywhere,... playing the executive roll of running and administrating the worlds biggest economy and government.

The Reality TV - White House and pResidency - all theatrics - zero substance.
