For at least the first fifteen minutes of her Fox Cable News show, The Kelly File, host Megyn Kelly dwelled ad museum regarding President Elect, Donald Trump’s possible backing off from the prosecution of Hillary Clinton for illegal activities in connection with using a private email server while serving as Secretary of State and the Clinton Foundation.
Ms. Kelly interviewed various individuals and insinuated that Mr. Trump was breaking a major campaign promise in being reluctant to talk about how he might prosecute HRC (Hillary Rodham Clinton). Because this was getting old, I chose to retire to my office and write about it.
I supported Donald Trump, not only because he ran as a Republican and I would rather dress in blue and orange and yell “War Eagle” than vote Democrat, but because he promised to repeal and/or replace Obamacare, to lower the corporate income tax rate, to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States, undo all of the executive orders signed by Barak Obama creating burdensome regulations, and destroy ISIS and other Islamic terrorist groups.
During the campaign, candidate Donald Trump indicated that he wanted to put Hillary Clinton in jail for her crimes. Chants of “Lock her up” were even heard at many of his rallies. While I think it would be nice to see HRC behind bars, there are other things more important as Donald Trump makes a valiant effort to save this country from the abyss in which Barak Obama had the United States headed.
Let’s be realistic. How many times during the course of your life have you wanted to harm someone, really harm them? Maybe it was a boss, maybe it was a classmate, maybe it was a parent or another family member, or maybe it was a neighbor. It was someone who had “done you wrong” and you were out for revenge.
In my first fiction novel, three classmates of the main character, Kristie, hated her so much that they planned to kidnap her and force her to drink straight whiskey until she passed out. After she passed out, they were going to tie her up and throw her into some snaky woods by a local creek in hope that she would get bit to death by poisonous snakes. When it came time to do the insidious deed, all three boys backed off. As much as they hated Kristie, they couldn’t do that to her. Maybe Donald Trump is not prepared to do prosecute HRC. Maybe since he won the presidency, getting back at her is just not that important. Maybe saving this country and giving the American people a chance at the America dream is more important that a lengthy protracted trial that’s sure to detract from his mission to make America great again.
Donald Trump was elected to the presidency of the United States a mere two weeks ago, and already the press is disparaging him about his waffling on the prosecution of Hillary Clinton. Why? What does it matter? There are so many other things that need to be done in order to get this country out of free fall. Let’s concentrate on those things and hold him accountable in those areas. Then if enough time is left, maybe prosecute HRC.
