“I thought you love America?” I asked her.
“I do,” she said, “What’s that got to do with anything?”
Smile on my face I said, “Well I know you believe in democracy and the rights of your fellow Americans to choose…”
Knowing where I was headed, she jabbed me in the ribs with her fork.
“I know your games by now and I’m not playing,” she said.
I couldn’t help myself.
I just find it fun to play with people who take this political theater so seriously.
“But it’s different with him…”
She started on the usual rant about the President.
Nothing unusual, just the typical copy you hear from a democrat.
Like those Republicans still groaning about Bill and Hillary, the same headlines never get tired.
She’s not talking about Russia anymore.
Just the impeachment. How he’s a pig. Stupid. Racist. Bigot.
But she’d just got done talking to me about inclusiveness and respecting different choices, so again I couldn’t help myself…
“Well, I know how important inclusiveness is to you, and I know you have great respect for other people’s vote.”
“You can’t get me that way,” she said.
“I don’t need to get you any way…”
“You’re going to get four more years of him anyways.”
Now I got more than a jab in the ribs.
I love to play with the die-hard Dems on these topics, but then I got more serious.
I care greatly for my client, her happiness, and her focus on winning, so I said…
“In all seriousness, you only have one vote, and one choice.”
“You can spend the rest of his presidency feeling frustrated wasting your time and energy on all that stuff, or you can stop thinking about what you can’t control, and focus on what you can.”
“Like how you can take over your world”
Love him or hate him, Trump has done something that many people wish they could.
He’s taken over the country.
Convinced people to put him in charge.
So he can drive his agenda for America and the world.
“Just imagine,” I said to her, “You could use more of what he did to have more impact in your world?”
Now her ears pricked up.
She wants to drive her business massive.
Keep her team fired up, driving hard.
“You’re right,” she said. “If I can’t beat him, at least I can use his strategies to beat the heck out of my competitors,” she said.
Now she was no longer sad about his goals, but fired up for crushing hers!
