{UAH} A tale of two Trumps

A tale of two Trumps

Why President Trump loves his role, hates his job, and what this means for the November elections.

Marwan Bisharaby Marwan Bishara
10 hours ago




You have to admire US President Donald Trump's persistence. Almost 100,000 Americans have died under his watch in the last 100 days, and he is still boasting about his success and greatness.

Of course, the president is convinced he is not responsible for these deaths and that, in fact, he has done a "great job" and saved "millions of lives".

Trump also reckons "Trump is right" about the economy and he thinks there has never been a president like President Trump.

Surrealistic? Perhaps. But he believes it.

Trump, who so often talks about himself in the third person, has been living two lives, or arguably two lies - that of a populist outsider and an unfortunate White House insider.

May the real Donald Trump please stand up

Ever since the real estate magnate, TV sensation and brand master auditioned for the presidency of the world's foremost superpower and won it spectacularly in November 2016, he has been having great fun performing the lead role in the greatest show on earth.

As if he were still at Trump Tower, @realDonaldTrump has continued to amuse himself watching TV and tweeting, bullying, badgering and berating his detractors and praising and flattering his lackeys, all the while confusing the United States's friends and bewildering its foes.

He has had the time of his life. It has been a showman's dream come true. He can say anything about anything and watch it cause a national hoopla "like you've never seen before". 

His motto: All publicity is good publicity; if you cannot be famous be infamous, as long as you dominate the news agenda.

So when his detractors called him "frighteningly unstable", Trump insisted he was a "stable genius".

And when the Washington establishment baulked at his dangerous Middle East policy, he propagated the claim that he was "the King of Israel" and "the second coming of God".

In the process, he became an international sensation and the undisputed star of world politics. Neither Hollywood, nor slick Obama, could have matched such terrific political drama.

But then, just as the lead man prepared for another four-year season, it all came crashing down.

Not the drama, not the spectacle, but the act.

A pandemic struck and suddenly, Trump had to be president, not only perform the role.

Lives depended on it.

A rude awakening

The pandemic spoiled the party and interrupted Trump's scripted reality.

He was forced to govern in a time of crisis.

So he tried.

But "America's CEO", who ran the White House as he did Trump Tower, relying exclusively on unqualified loyalists and family members, stuttered and stammered.

He tried desperately to cover up the pandemic by resorting to polemics. He first insisted it did not exist, that it was just a hoax. Then he claimed it was nothing important and it would just disappear.

But it did not. It spread like wildfire.

As he struggled to understand the scientific and medical aspects of this national public health emergency, the spectacle devolved into a real-life tragedy as people died in droves.

He tried to do what he does best - branding. He stamped his name on every government cheque that went out to tens of millions of needy Americans, hoping to be appreciated. He also put his face on every press conference, briefing the nation on the "tremendous job" he was doing combatting the virus.

He even called himself a "war president", declared war on the pandemic, and assigned his son-in-law, the "talented Mr Kushner", to wield the power of government to defeat it.

And within weeks, Trump declared success, not to say victory, and tried to move on.

But to no avail. The virus would not be intimidated, charmed or wished away.

But as Trump, the insider, failed at the White House, Trump, the populist outsider, was having relative success blaming China, "the do-nothing Democrats", and the World Health Organization (WHO) for his failures. 

He also blamed the deep state bureaucracy, the governors and the scientists who disagreed with his rosy projections, calling their warnings, a "political hit job".

But Americans have continued to die and the economy has continued to tank.

More Americans have died from COVID-19 this year than in all US wars since World War II, and the country has witnessed its worst economic decline since World War I.

In short, the novel coronavirus has infected Trump's entire presidency, leaving it in critical condition.

Signs of fatigue, pain and frustration are only a few of the symptoms the White House has displayed, as it has tried to put a brave face on a helpless situation.

But numbers do not lie. Nor do the countless dramatic images from overcrowded hospitals and empty streets that will forever be associated with Trump's presidency, and may well torpedo his chances for another term.

So what to do?

Unable to save lives or jobs, Trump has opted to save his presidency.

The show must go on

Tired of all the nagging scientists and probing journalists, Trump has checked out, leaving the pandemic to the state governors to handle.

The populist outsider has been dying to get the show back on the road in order to replace the images of suffering and desperation with those of cheering crowds.

The "morbidly obese" president is literally risking his life to get out and about in preparation to launch his presidential campaign. And he is deliberately doing it without wearing a mask to project an image of confidence. 

He wants to lead rallies and speak at packed stadiums, which the Democrats have denied him, as they milk the pandemic "hoax" and encourage restrictive measures.

He has also expressed his intention to convene next month's annual G7 meeting in person at the Camp David presidential retreat, to show how the world is returning to "normalcy" and the US is "transitioning back to greatness". 

Except that the day he made the announcement, the WHO registered the highest number of infections in a single day since the pandemic started - 106,000.

But @realDonaldTrump in his mind has already transitioned from the presidency to the incumbency.

The pandemic has dramatised the schizophrenic swing between Trump the White House insider who has failed miserably, and Trump, the populist, who loves his outsider role and excels at it.

So much so that Trump the populist incumbent is considering running against Trump the president and the entire Washington establishment.

All of which, on second thought, explains why Trump may be failing successfully.

But as the number of American deaths continues to rise, will the images of his upcoming rallies mask the real American carnage?

The answer may determine whether next year Trump ends up at the White House or at a New York courtroom.

{UAH} THE JUSTINE NAMEERE AND FARIDAH NAKAZIBWE FUED: WHY IT IS NOT A SMALL MATTER.

THE JUSTINE NAMEERE AND FARIDAH NAKAZIBWE FUED: WHY IT IS NOT A SMALL MATTER. 

By Henry Mutebe

For the last couple days, there has been a conflict between two popular Ugandan female TV personalities that has vacuumed all the power from other stories and events in the media space. It has persisted with biting force. 

The story. About two years ago, Faridah, a news anchor and talk show host, accused Justine, a former colleague at the same TV station, of intruding into her marriage by sending concerning messages to her fiancé – a one Sali. Faridah went full throttle on her facebook page writing an explosive  post that shot sparks in the social media space. It was a story read by small and big alike. Justine is a daughter of a very respected senior citizen. The allegations would not only bruise her but embarrass the father and all kin alike. It was utterly  explosive. 

The ever thirsting public, also wounded by their own personal struggles and in constant search of bad news elsewhere to make their own feel a bit less, waited for Justine's response with impatience. It was good bad news. It made everyone forget their hustle. After a while, and what I believe to have been a measured response, Justine vehemently denied the accusations and went to court to seek redress. 

Perhaps its the celebrity worship culture and the vulnerabilities of obsessions with TV personalities but Faridah seemed to have won the social media followers to her side-in the first round of the battle.  She was believed. Justine was put on the cross and crucified...she died and was literally burried.  But she rose again...and ascended into the public limelight again  as they say...you can win a battle but not the war...it was not yet over. Drums beat. Guns roared. The smoke poured into the sky. The war raged on. 
  

In the days that followed, it has been reported, investigations revealed that Salli- the fiancée of Faridah was the one creating pseudo accounts and sending his fiancé messages while pretending to be Justine. This he did with many others, they say. It was odd. It was shocking. It was like a page torn out of a scary movie only that this time, it was real. Faridah had been fooled- badly. This turn of events changed the dynamics of the case. 
 
Justine, in her latest revelations says that Farida, having realized that she had been fooled by the man she called a fiancé/husband, confessed, during arbitration, that she had made a mistake and had since canceled their relationship. Justine adds that Farida asked her to forgive her. Justine demanded that since Faridah had made her accusations in public- on social media, damaging Justine's name and causing great emotional torture not just to her but to her family, she should withdraw those allegations on the same platform she used to make them. 

For Faridah, this was a tall order. First, she had not wanted the public to know that Salli had fooled her. Just coming to the realisation that she had been fooled and conned, was traumatic enough. She would not want her social media haters to consume such news. It would be to walk to the eye of the storm. She never talked about it, until today when the public learnt from Justine. She was given over 6 months to come clean and clear her colleague's name. But Faridah has found it hard to do so. She has maintained a loud silence about it and does not seem to have any plans to yield. 

Driven by what she perceived to be the arrogance of Faridah, and a sheer display of no remorse, Justine recently resurrected the conflict by pouring out the details of what happened. The revelations have changed some hearts but also hardened others. Those who love, or perhaps I should say, are loyal to her, have brushed Justine's latest cache of details about Farida as 'useless' and accused her of wanting to hitch a ride on Faridah's recent shinning form in the media.

Those who support Justine feel Farida owes her an apology. The battle rages on, the judges are many and the public court continues to prosecute the case with scathing subjectivity. 
 
Now, this is my opinion. This case, on the surface looks insignificant. One could easily dismiss it as one of those usual media conflicts whose flames are being fanned by the ever rolling wheels of the media but I think we need to peel off some layers and see if there is something to be learned from it and the implications for the general working of our society. 

Now, like many others, I am a big supporter of Faridah. I think she is a great news anchor, a very intelligent Talk show host and someone who is part of a good Team at NTV that have given us good content that is educative, inspiring and entertaining. You like her or hate her, you can not take that away from her. She is good. 

Justine, too is an intelligent young lady, bred in a refined family, been to some of the finest schools around town and has her admirers.  Perhaps this kind of background that presents her as a strong, unapologetic, I know my rights kind of character does not endear her to many, but it is also an attribute that many find captivating. So in the eyes of the Public, Faridah comes off as the innocent, the public's baby, one that is vulnerable and a victim. Justine has mostly been viewed as a strong, offensive person who should 'get over it'. 

 I must confess, many have not given her opportunity to appreciate her side. But it is not surprising. Our society tends to view women as weak and vulnerable and naïve. Those who come off as strong willed, independent or somewhat 'emotionless' are viewed as 'not good women.' Justine has suffered that believability deficit. She doesn't come off as a woman seeking sympathy or one who is vulnerable.  Her confidence has played to her disadvantage. 

However, even for those that felt Justine was strong, after watching part of her story on NBS, some have come to understand that even behind the strength and smiles, lies a vulnerability that is inherent to us all as humans and that everyone has a story- and for many- a sad story you have no idea about. Its just that some come off strong and don't give any clue about the tears and wounds that are kept in the deepest corners of their lives. Watching her cry for minutes about the loss of her mother brought some onions in the room...and perhaps made people think again. 

In my view, as James Altucher once said, Honesty is the fastest way to prevent  a mistake from turning into a failure. Perhaps I am naïve, and may be I underestimate the power of an apology but I think it would put Faridah miles ahead if she came straight and tendered an apology to a hurting colleague. As they say, not admitting a mistake is a bigger mistake. No body is going to judge her...she is loved...and they will love...even then. It will be a great display of maturity to tender an apology. Those supporting her may not be there as the ugly hands of the law pierce through her purse. The law is a devil. I love Farida and I think it would be a good thing...actually a honourable thing to reach to be firm and say, I am sorry.

It is now clear to friends and foes alike, that Faridah was fooled by a man, and it is not her mistake that she was fooled. Many women in her position would exactly do what she did when she came out to make that post that has remained a thorn in her life. I don't think I will like Faridah any less just because she said I am sorry to her colleague and this for me, is a sign of maturity than if she did not. 

The feud of Justine and Faridah reminds me of our childhood. There was always the young baby in the family…or the one that was loved most by parents…that no matter how cruel or offensive they got, the parents sided with them and expected whoever was offended to 'get over it' or understand. In the end, those children never learned certain values or how to live in an an environment where the parents' protection never worked. 

I think that Justine finds herself in that not very enviable situation. She is the 'not believed child' who must 'get over it' and 'understand'. it hurts. I think we need to understand her also. I must admit, Justine, may have revealed perhaps a little too much, that has now given Faridah more hurt but I think the two can reach out to each other and correct this. I think the talk about where Farida ended in school.. the job of Salli...et cetera may have been a bit of a stretch. But I know anger is not a good friend of those tongue.  Farida shouldnt have even taken all this time that has given opportunity to Justine to spill all these details. A simple I am sorry...what I said was wrong would have saved her all this. See, you have to appreciate that both of them are wounded...and so...it can swing any side. 

But is this all or there is something to worry about. You see, everyday, our politicians do wrong things or they make mistakes. We cry loud and demand that they at-least have the courtesy to say sorry. However, here is a situation in which we feel, Farida should not say sorry. It is not just about Farida people. It is breeding a culture of ego. And it is dangerous. 

While Justine and Farida seem to be two individuals playing our a social conflict, they represent a value system that is being put to the test. On the one hand, you have Justine, wronged and right to demand an apology and on the other we have Faridah, who remains unapologetic. These two are sending messages and shaping public behavior. 

In many moments, you will all be confronted by these kinds of situations. You will one time be the 'unbelieved' like Justine. No amount of crying, emotional toil or damage will make people believe you or even feel remorseful. Then many of you will also find yourselves in a situation like Faridah…a situation where friends encourage you to remain defiant, yet you know for sure, you wronged someone. 

I hope that as we continue to adjudicate this case, you fully appreciate what it means in the larger scheme of things and the implications the conduct of these two public figures has on the value system of our society. 

For me, I celebrate these two women and I hope that those close to them are able to provide honest counsel that shall help them have a meeting of minds, and that both will appreciate what they could have done to each other and have the humility to say I am sorry. As we fan the flames of this conflict, let be known to you that you are not supporting Faridah or Justine, this is a matter of what is wrong or right to do. 

I hope that our obsession with these two people can afford us, for a moment, an opportunity to reflect on the fact that this feud is not a fight between these two but a tension that is ever present in our society- the ever haunting choice of choosing between what is right or wrong. I hope they choose the later. I have write this post with love for both of them.

 As a father...I know that children can fight and both of them can have good reasons to do so...but through it all, there must be values you reinforce as a parent. I think saying I am sorry...in fact retracting those allegations would be a very wise thing to do and should be always be promoted over anything else. It saves a lot. I think we should avoid being team Justine and team Farida demactions. In this case...some things remain in the grey area. To reduce it to team X or Y is not a great idea  I believe both should be helped to overcome the hurt and to continue to ride high in their careers. I am not team Farida or Justine...I am team rising women. When women rise...children have a better chance at their persuit of the future. No body should fall. Values should rise. Unless  Faridas lawyers think a retraction could be a big concession at this stage...and that there are perhaps other...ways to get a better deal.

Former Donald Trump fan Ann Coulter yesterday went on an extraordinary Twitter rant, calling the president a 'disloyal retard' and a 'blithering idiot.'

Coulter was incensed on Sunday after Trump tweeted 'Alabama, do not trust Jeff Sessions', the latest attack by the president on his former Attorney General.

The far-right pundit said Trump's endorsement of Tommy Tuberville - Sessions' opponent in the Republican primary - showed he was 'the most disloyal human God ever created.' 

The author of the 2016 book 'In Trump We Trust' went on to say: 'I will never apologize for supporting the issues that candidate Trump advocated, but I am deeply sorry for thinking that this shallow and broken man would show even some remote fealty to the promises that got him elected.'

Trump was furious Sessions recused himself from overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. Sessions ultimately resigned at Trump's request.

Coulter, 58, once one of the few people who Trump followed on Twitter, has sought to distance herself from the Republican president ever since she feels he betrayed his immigration pledges.

Coulter, 58, once one of the few people who Trump followed on Twitter, has gone after the president ever since she feels he betrayed his immigration pledges, particularly his failure to build the wall.

She defended Sessions in her tweets, saying he was 'the ONE PERSON in the Trump administration who did anything about immigration.'

It comes amid a bitter war of words between Trump and Sessions which centers around the Alabamian's time as AG and his infamous recusal in 2017.  

Why did Coulter and Trump fall out?

In December 2018, Coulter - who had backed Donald Trump as the great hope of right-wingers - penned a column titled: 'Gutless president in wall-less country.'

She had run out of patience over Trump's election pledge to build a wall along the southern border to keep out Latino migrants.

She called Trump's a 'joke presidency' and said he was 'scamming' Americans.

Just three hours later, Trump unfollowed her on Twitter. This a stinging rebuke by the president - who follows just 46 people, while he has more than 80 million followers.

Prior to this Trump had tweeted about Coulter's 2016 book 'In Trump We Trust' being 'terrific.'

Since their fall out over the wall, Coulter has continued to criticize Trump over his failure to deal with illegal immigration.

In February 2019 she said: 'We put this lunatic in the White House for one reason (the wall).' 

At the time Trump had been declaring a national emergency over the masses of immigrants at the border. Coulter had tweeted: 'The only national emergency is that our president is an idiot.' 

In response Trump called her a 'wacky nut job' and insisted that he was 'winning on the border.'

Trump was furious Sessions recused himself from overseeing special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation. Sessions ultimately resigned at Trump's request.  

Trump tweeted Saturday: '3 years ago, after Jeff Sessions recused himself, the Fraudulent Mueller Scam began. Alabama, do not trust Jeff Sessions. He let our Country down. That's why I endorsed Coach Tommy Tuberville (@TTuberville), the true supporter of our #MAGA agenda!'

Coulter disagreed with the president's analysis of how the 'Mueller Scam' came to pass, writing: 'Sessions HAD to recuse himself, you complete blithering idiot. 

'YOU did not have to go on Lester Holt's show and announce you fired Comey over the Russian investigation. That's what got you a Special Prosecutor.'

She added: 'Yeah, it was Sessions fault Trump got a Special Prosecutor. You don't even need Nexis to see it was ALL TRUMP'S FAULT. He had to brag it that was HIS decision to fire Comey!' 

Sessions tweeted last week that Trump was 'fortunate' he had recused himself and preserved the rule of law that had eventually exonerated the president in the Russia investigation.

Coulter responded to Sessions' tweet, saying: 'Observe: a gentleman - and a MAN, not a whining, blame-shifting, gigantic fruitcake.' 

Coulter said of the upcoming Senate battle: 'This is going to be another Roy Moore catastrophe - also engineered by Trump.'

That a reference to the 2017 special election for the Senate seat vacated by Sessions in Alabama when Democratic candidate Doug Jones had defeated Republican candidate Roy Moore.

Trump had originally backed Luther Strange as the Republican candidate in that race before getting behind Moore - who was plagued by accusations of sexual misconduct.

Coulter added: 'GREAT WORK IN THE LAST ALABAMA SENATE RACE, MR. PRESIDENT! Keep it up and we'll have zero Republican senators. The next Republican president will be elected in the year 4820 ...

'TRUMP GOT ALABAMA A DEMOCRATIC U.S. SENATOR BY HIS IDIOTIC MEDDLING IN THE PRIMARY LAST TIME. If you know nothing else, Alabamians, you should do the opposite of what Trump recommends in a primary.'  

Trump has chosen to back the political neophyte Tuberville over Sessions, the man who previously held the seat for 20 years.

Tuberville and Sessions will face each other in a July 15 Republican primary runoff ballot and then go onto challenge the incumbent, Jones, in November.

The president, in an interview that aired Sunday, again railed against Sessions and used the occasion to argue he outwitted a deep state conspiracy that tried to remove him from office. 

'Jeff Sessions was a disaster as attorney general - should have never been Attorney General,' Trump told Sharyl Attkisson for her show 'Full Measure,' which airs on the Sinclair network.

'He's not mentally qualified to be Attorney General. He was the biggest problem,' the president continued.

Trump named Sessions, who was one of the first senators to support his presidential campaign, as his choice to lead the Justice Department shortly after he won the election.

'They always had the Department of Justice, but they kept it under Jeff Sessions,' Trump said in what appeared to be a reference to the 'deep state.'

Trump has been invested in the theory that there is a 'deep state' at work in the government bureaucracy - particularly the Justice Department - that tried to keep him from winning the 2016 election and then tried to remove him from office. 

In his interview with Attkisson, he hit out at some of the officials he has accused of being part of such an effort, particularly former FBI Director James Comey, who Trump again called a 'dirty cop'; and former FBI agents Lisa Page and Peter Strzok, whose exchanged anti-Trump texts during the 2016 election.

'I have a chance to break the deep state. It's a vicious group of people. It's very bad for our country,' Trump said in the interview.

'They never thought I was going to win and then I won. And then they tried to get me out,' he added. 

But his conspiracy theory has - not yet anyway - panned out.

There have been no arrests and internal Justice Department investigations found no evidence of wrong doing on the part of any person on Trump's list. 

President Trump and Jeff Sessions together in happier time: February 9, 2017, when Sessions was sworn in as attorney general in a ceremony in the Oval Office

Sessions, meanwhile, has returned to Alabama to run for the Senate seat he resigned from in order take the job as Trump's attorney general.

Trump's latest salvos comes after he formally endorsed Session's opponent in the Republican primary, college football coach Tuberville.

Sessions' took to Twitter Saturday to defend himself against Trump's charges and said he agreed with his former boss that the Mueller investigation was 'phony.'

Sessions also insisted that he was the one who urged Trump to fire Comey as FBI director.
