Or the Washington establishment in general. He ran on an anti-establishment feeling, but I somehow didn't expect it to some out so strongly in his inaugural. I was expecting more unity and conciliatory talk, not for the government, but for people in general. Americans coming together to stand shoulder to shoulder kind of thing. It was definitely a speech for the people who feel like they are loosing in the current economy.
I didn't like the isolationism. Parts of that made me very uncomfortable. We can love our country, and we can lead, but we don't need to withdraw or place blame on countries that have emerging economies. I felt that a bit. An us against them feeling that isn't necessary. Just my thoughts this morning.
Other than that, I was surprised that Toby Keith didn't sing Red Solo Cup last night. Seriously, the prayers and the introduction to the inaugural about our history had me choked up a little bit. I was glad that Mo Tab performed America the Beautiful even though so many of my people didn't want to support Trump. It's an American institution, and it should be above politics when it comes to respecting the institution. Seeing our military men and women in their dress blues is always moving. I hope I never loose that feeling. I still feel like America is a miracle, and I feel incredibly grateful.
