Trump Checks in with Obama

Today we learned that Donald Trump speaks regularly with President Obama. Beyond their first sit-down they’ve put in more than 30 hours discussing many issues. This information was disclosed by Kellyanne Conway on the November 27, 2016 edition of MSNBC Meet The Press.

According to ConwayWhat makes me cautiously optimistic about my successor and the shift from campaign mode to governance is there’s something about the solemn responsibilities of that office, the extraordinary demands that are placed on the United States — not just by its own people but by people around the world — that forces you to focus, that demands seriousness. And if you’re not serious about the job, then you probably won’t be there very long because it will expose problems.”
The following remarks were articulated by Obama in a joint press conference with Angela Merkel on Thursday, November 17th, 2016. Obama is clearly trying to give the new president a hint as to the attitude that he should take with the American public. “What makes me cautiously optimistic about my successor and the shift from campaign mode to governance is there’s something about the solemn responsibilities of that office, the extraordinary demands that are placed on the United States — not just by its own people but by people around the world — that forces you to focus, that demands seriousness. And if you’re not serious about the job, then you probably won’t be there very long because it will expose problems.” Obama added “Even when you’re doing a job, even when you are attentive, there are so many things that come across your desk that people are going to question you, and you’re going to have opponents and you’re going to have critics, and you figure that out pretty fast when you’re sitting there. And I think the President-elect is going to see fairly quickly that the demands and responsibilities of a U.S. President are not ones that you can treat casually, and that in a big, complex, diverse country, the only way that you can be successful is by listening and reaching out and working with a wide variety of people.

In a previous post it was mentioned the fact that the current president and the president elect were both born on Fridays. I thought that sharing the same Day Ray could activate an INNER bond that no one could have expected.  My statement was based on the fact that Friday is ruled by Venus, who at its highest level operates as a mediator and peacemaker. It also works at lower levels of “just making things nice” which is what appears now to be going on in this situation. Obama and Trump have never gotten along, especially since Trump initiated the rumor that Obama was born in Africa, but Obama did his best to appear warm and cordial.

Now lets consider Kellyanne Conway. She began as a pollster for Trump. She has supported him since early 2016 when she was appointed his campaign manager. She was considered an expert on the voting patterns of women. After Trump’s unexpected win she was given the position of Advisor to the President and was sent out to defend all of the president’s indefensible positions. Even when her Alternative Facts were not accepted he kept her on, but did not use her as his front man. Here we clearly feel the Friday bond between them, although it cannot really be explained. Basically at the time they needed someone one with that energy and it clicked.

While Conway and Obama were also Friday’s children, they had no reason to relate. Neither had anything that one could offer to the other. So now we see that just being born on the same Day of the Week does not guarantee positive relationships especially when they are opposites sides of any major divide. However having the same Day Ray does allow one person to understand the characteristic motives and methods of the other. This knowledge is a strong bond even it it not recognized as it allows one to see into the character strengths and flaws of another. That is probably the reason that Obama received such disrespect from Trump and Conway
