So Donald J. Trump will be the 45th President of the United States of America.
No, not a political post, there’s been way too much of all that already, both on my WordPress feed and outside of it. I just wanted to say that, if this presidential election has taught me anything, it is that YOU CAN BE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO BE! Sorry I’m shouting, it’s the Trump effect. Wow, I just realized, many years from now, children are going to be reading about THIS in their history books, about how an orange became the President of the US of A, this whole phenomenon might even have a name – The Trump effect? THE TRUMP EVENT.
“Yes kids, way back in 2016, the USA thought it would be a good idea to elect a racist, misogynist, violent, fear mongering man who couldn’t even be trusted with his Twitter (remember we covered Twitter, Facebook and applications known as social media in our previous chapter?) as Commander-in-Chief.”
Remember how the teacher used to tell that one kid in class, “Of course you can be the future president of the country, Jimmy, you just gotta believe.” IT’S TRUE!
Job hunting and you feel you don’t have enough experience to apply for a particular job? Apply anyway!
Lost for words during an interview? Make up your own! “Bigly”? “braggadocios”? “yuuuge”?- the possibilities are endless.
“Okay Miss/Mr Job Candidate, why should we hire you?”
“I’m going to make this company great again, okay? I’m going to do hyuge things, tremendous things, we have a problem with this company and I AM going to fix it. I’ve had so many people tell me I’m doing a great job, I’m doing a fantastic job. I will the greatest employee that God ever created, I can tell you.”
If Trump has taught us anything, it’s that your employers will probably be stupid enough to hire you anyway. Doesn’t matter how uninformed, uneducated or plain ignorant you make yourself out to be (or pretend to, at least – quoting Andy Borowitz : Say what you will about Trump, he is not stupid. He is a smart man with a deep understanding of what stupid people want).
Good luck America, may you be great again.
