Compare and contrast: Obamaman and The Donald

Two items in the news ...

So now you're telling us. A new biography of Barack Obama is laying bare his life since he was born and discloses his relationships before he married Michelle. Obama's sex secrets laid bare: How he considered a gay fling, had passionate sex and cocaine with one white girl, proposed twice to another -- and cheated on Michelle before they married.

Obama would party with three friends including Sohale Siddiqi (pictured) with whom he would do cocaine. Siddiqi, Hasan Chandoo, Imad Hussain took 'lots of cocaine', the new biography of Obama says. That Obama was still using cocaine in his early 20s is a significant revelation. He had previously only disclosed that he used it as a teenage student.

And he doesn't even drink or smoke! If you were a visitor from a distant solar system come to our nation or even a time traveler from our own nineteenth century, I submit you would be perplexed. This Trump person (being?) doesn't seem to be all that different from many leaders who have come before him. I mean, what has he done exactly? Enforced some immigration laws that were enacted by the Congress over several administrations? Tried to fix a mediocre healthcare plan with another plan that may or may not be as mediocre? Called for a tax reduction similar to those enacted by previous Republican and Democratic administrations? Cut back on some regulations that became overly burdensome? Called for a temporary halt to immigration from a half-dozen countries his predecessor had already cited as dangerous hotbeds of terrorism? Shot off a few dozen cruise missiles at the airfield of a dictator who was gassing his own people, but didn't harm a single person in the process.
