Greetings Bi-peds! 

 Charles Krauthammer may not be an immediately recognizable name to you but in fact many of you have seen and heard him on talking head TV shows. He is a syndicated columnist on things social, cultural , and political. He is also a graduate of Harvard Medical School , a psychiatrist who was a contributor to the DIAGNOSTIC AND STATISTICAL MANUAL OF MENTAL DISORDERS. He has won the Pulitzer prize, and he has appeared on a regular basis on PBS and Fox networks as a commentator. He may not be a dedicated Trump fan, but is in fact a lot smarter and more sophisticated and better informed on things psychiatric than all those MSM celebrities screaming that Trump is mentally ill. As a three thousand year old retired demigod I urge my biped friends to listen carefully to Dr. Krauthammer's observations about "The Donald" , who I think also has many of the more desirable traits of a retired demigod.

Things starting to look more familiar now?

According to a recent E-mail we received Dr. Krauthammer has an interesting take on Mr. Trump. We have not been able to find the source of the below quotes so we're going to stick our necks out by publishing them with just a few disclaimers. 

First if this is from some copyrighted source please alert us in the comments section at the bottom of this post and we will delete it immediately. It is somewhat widely published on the Internet with out attribution so we assume that it first appeared there and intended for wider dissemination. If we are wrong we apologize and will remove it immediately on notice. 

 Second, the verbiage in red signals our own catfish comments. Assuming these observations were meant for the public domain, we see no prohibition to our responding as we see fit. If in fact this was never meant for the public domain we will remove the entire post upon notice. So below please find Dr. Krauthammer's observations about Donald Trump. We think that if you like the President you will recognize some aspects of him that you like but had never been quite able to articulate. If you are a "Never Trump" you're going to hate this post. If you are a died in the wool conservative you'll also find some truth here and it is likely to disappoint you. If you are Hillary fan, that is to say a leftist, socialists, angry, economically uninformed hateful know it all; of course you're going to hate it, you hate everything anyway.

The person who forwarded this to our E-mail wrote: 

"To my friends "of a different persuasion" I'm not trying to sell anything or anyone but I do feel this is an interesting take on our very controversial president who I truly believe is not Republican or Democrat."
(Personally here at AAB we never much cared for Republicans and think Democrats are insane, we voted for Trump because we thought it time to bring in a real manager and leader, and drain the damn swamp. Our country has had enough of gross incompetent management.)  

Dr. Kruthammer apparently wrote:

"A different take on Donald Trump:  (a non-political agenda)"
"Trump Is Not A Liberal or Conservative, He's a "Pragmatist."   (Definition: A pragmatist is someone who is practical and focused on reaching a goal. A pragmatist usually has a straightforward, matter-of-fact approach and doesn't let emotion distract him or her.)  ( To which we at AAB would add that Trump is a "principled pragmatists". He clearly respects the constitution, as written, not as lefty bone heads think it should have been written. He also acknowledges that he is a Christian (Presbyterian)  so we think we can usually know his basic moral and ethical guide lines to be as found in the ten commandants as handed down by Moses in terms of things to avoid, and the Sermon on the Mount in terms of generally good things to do. We think he is actually quite predictable within these guidelines. In short he is  principled and pragmatic, like the overwhelming majority of Americans. But as much as we would all like to join there will never be an actual principled and pragmatic party in America. It would be too quickly identified as the "PP party" and you can imagine what fun the humorless and mean spirited Democrats would have with that. No the closest we will ever come is an occasional PP candidate emerging out of the Republican party, not often to the applause of the party elite. Really Romney, give it up, you're not our guy.)   
"We recently enjoyed a belated holiday dinner with friends at the home of other friends. The dinner conversation varied from discussions about antique glass and china to theology and politics.  
 At one point, reference was made to Donald Trump being a conservative, to which I responded that Trump is not a conservative.  
 I said that I neither view nor do I believe Trump views himself as a conservative. I stated it was my opinion that Trump is a pragmatist. He sees a problem and  understands it must be fixed. He doesn't see the problem as liberal or conservative, he sees it only as a problem. That is a quality that should be admired and applauded, not condemned. But I get ahead of myself.  ( We agree that pragmatism when tempered by constitutional, ethical, and moral restraints is to be lauded) 
 Viewing problems from a Liberal perspective has resulted in the creation of more problems, more entitlement programs, more victims, more government, more political correctness, and more attacks on the working class in all economic strata.  ( Can we get an "amen!" on that ! )
Viewing things according to the so-called Republican conservative perspective has brought continued spending and globalism to the detriment of American interests and well being, denial of what the real problems are, weak, ineffective, milquetoast, leadership that amounts to Barney Fife Deputy Sheriff, appeasement oriented and afraid of its own shadow. In brief, it has brought liberal ideology with a pachyderm as a mascot juxtaposed to the ass of the Democrat Party.  ( Um ...pretty close to right on, but given the choice we'd still pull the lever for the pachyderm over the donkey every time) 
 Immigration isn't a Republican problem, it isn't a Liberal problem, it is a problem that threatens the very fabric and infrastructure of America. It demands a pragmatic approach not an approach that is intended to appease one group or another.  
 The impending collapse of the economy wasn't a Liberal or Conservative problem, it is an American problem. That said, until it is viewed as a problem that demands a common sense approach to resolution, it will never be fixed because the Democrats and Republicans know only one way to fix things and the longevity of  their impracticality has proven to have no lasting effect.  
 Successful businessmen like Donald Trump find ways to make things work, they do not promise to accommodate.  
( Our collective military experience among our staff , a collective total of about 93 years, leads us to the firm belief that effective leaders would rarely win popularity contests) 
 Trump uniquely understands that China's manipulation of currency is not a Republican problem or a Democrat problem. It is a problem that threatens our financial stability and he understands the proper balance needed to fix it.  
Here again, successful businessmen, like Trump, who have weathered the changing tides of economic reality understand what is necessary to make business work, and they, unlike both sides of the political aisle, know that if something doesn't work, you don't continue trying to make it work hoping that at some point it will.  ( Because if you are so tolerant of error and stinking thinking your stockholders will run you out of your own company. To be an effective economic leader you occasionally "gotta shoot a hostage" meaning knowing how and when to say those all important words "You're fired") 
 As a pragmatist, Donald Trump hasn't made wild pie-in-the-sky promises of a cell phone in every pocket, free college tuition, and a $15 hour minimum wage for working the drive-through at Carl's Hamburgers.  
 I argue that America needs pragmatists because pragmatists see a problem and find ways to fix them. They do not see a problem and compound it by creating more problems. (More over America likes pragmatists because we are a pragmatic people. This is why the main stream media fear Trump so much. They feel they have to paint him as a monster, because once the majority realize what he actually is they will re-elect him by a land slide ) 
You may not like Donald Trump, but I suspect that the reason some people do not like him is because:
    (1) he is antithetical to the "good old boy" method of brokering backroom deals that fatten the coffers of politicians;
    (2) they are unaccustomed to hearing a president speak who is unencumbered by the financial shackles of those who he owes vis-a-vis donations; 
    (3) he is someone who is free of idiomatic political ideology; 
    (4) he says what he is thinking, is unapologetic for his outspoken thoughts, speaks very straightforward using everyday language that can be understood by all (and is offensive to some who dislike him anyway) making him a great communicator, for the most part, does what he says he will do and;
    (5) he is someone who understands that it takes more than hollow promises and political correctness to make America great again.  
Listening to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders talk about fixing America is like listening to two lunatics trying to "out crazy" one another. Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Marco Rubio are owned lock, stock, and barrel by the bankers, corporations, and big dollar donors funding their campaigns. Bush can deny it, but common sense tells anyone willing to face facts is that people don't give tens of millions without expecting something in return.  
 We have had Democrats and Republican ideologues and what has it brought us? Are we better off today or worse off? Has it happened overnight or has it been a steady decline brought on by both parties?
 I submit that a pragmatist is just what America needs right now. People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance, but that is common among those who have never accomplished anything in their lives (or politicians who never really solved a problem, because it’s better to still have an "issue(s) to be solved," so re-elect me to solve it, (which never happens) and those who have always played it safe (again, all politicians) not willing to risk failure, to try and achieve success).  
 Donald Trump put his total financial empire at risk in running for president and certainly did not need or possibly even want the job; that says it all. He wants success for the U.S. and her citizens because he loves his country."

(So there you have it folks, a Harvard trained Psychiatrist is telling you that no matter what you may hear in the media Donald Trump is sane, and effective and could probably do this nation a lot of good if the lefty commie globalist, elitist snowflakes would call off their attack dogs long enough to let him do some work.  That he has gotten as much done as he has in spite of the bitter rabid constant opposition is amazing. What's his motive? The Doc says "he loves his country", say what??  A patriot , and unashamed of it; when was the last time you saw that in a public office holder? 

I'm NAMAZU and I approved this message!
