Add your own paranoid cat pictures
DO your job. That is your job. You may have to go to meetings you don't want to attend. You are not a king, you're now a politician, which is what you said you wanted to be. And guess what? A lot of that shit will be boring. But that's too bad, because you are an elected official to the highest office we have, and now, you have to do things you don't want to do. Or else leave office. That's the deal, dude.
Many like to give him credit for having this underlying secret plan that we're just not yet aware of, but I suspect it's more like a scattershot approach based on his mood and who he likes or who he's mad at, and also based on an understandable lack of knowledge about what he's dealing with. He's not a stupid person, so while it's not ideal or even really acceptable that he needs to know more about the intricacies of foreign policy, it's comprehensible because these things are deep and complicated and unclear. But he needs to try to understand it before making any rash moves, and that's where he's dangerous. I don't think he is premeditated, and that's okay, if you're dealing with a TV show and gambling only with ratings, but it is decidedly not okay if you are making decisions that can lead to nuclear disaster.
I hear planes fly close to our house now and I think, Is that someone getting ready to drop a bomb? Am I wrong in thinking that diplomacy is a delicate balance that requires a careful touch? I confess I didn't pay that much attention in world history class, though I had an awesome history teacher (Mr. O'Donnell, a bearded man who used to dress up in costumes to get us excited about the Vikings or Hannibal the elephant guy), but I am pretty sure you aren't supposed to make impulsive decisions with countries who have been fighting for centuries.
