From Mt. Vernon to Mar-AL-Ago?
Reading about George Washington, and there is no caparison the sack of ego in a wrinkled suit playing President during recess, and near the top of our great presidents, George Washington. If Trump were our first president (think WAY outside the box here!) he'd declare himself king and his descendants would still be lording their utter incompetence and stupidity over us. Of course, we'd be a polluted, uninhabitable wasteland and long ago faded into the annuals as THE stupidest country ever to to elect a perpetual eighth grader President.
Washington voluntarily stepped down after two terms. Many at the time would have expected different. They simply couldn't conceive of anybody willingly stepping down from all that power voluntarily, which is the opposite of Trump's wet dream. If Washington was as power-mad and egotistical, not to mention about a smart as a table leg as what we have now, the last two hundred forty two years would have gone so differently.
