Forrest Trump

Although I wasn’t a great admirer of the film, “Forrest Gump,” Forrest was lovable. I felt that there was disparagement of the main character who succeeded nevertheless because of his innocence. Our president displays some of the naiveté that Forest Gump displayed but on him, it comes across as ignoring reality. His language is hyperbolic with exaggeration on top of superlatives galore. Like Forrest, he lumbers along. Because he is our president, we must hope that he, like Forrest Gump, is going to be successful, setting his sights on the goal of protecting our nation and its people. According to Gump’s mother, “Stupid is as stupid does,” and Mr. Trump needs to take that admonition to heart. Blaming our former president without evidence to back up that accusation is certainly not the smart thing to do. Like Forrest Gump, Mr. Trump is going to be involved in every big event for the next four years. Hopefully, like Trump, he will become our hero. At present, he is a hero to only about 38% of the people.
