As part of my patriotic duty, I will begin sharing the word(s) of the day to help our President prepare for what’s coming. Because he doesn’t seem to attach the same meaning to words like honesty, news, Constitution, and transparency. I feel that if given a little time to consider the actual meanings of words he can do better. I will provide both the common definition and when applicable the urban translation. Today’s words: Too Little, Too Late
Definition: Not enough of something that should have been provided earlier
After two days of holding firm to his earlier statement of blaming, “many sides,” for the violence in Charlottesville. Trump finally read a statement in which he said, “Racism is evil.” He added, “And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans.”
He read a statement that someone else wrote that he almost certainly doesn’t believe. He waited to see if he could ride out the pressure (he couldn’t) before being forced to make a stronger statement, still measured in its criticism of right wing hate groups. This doesn’t make him King or Ghandi. It makes him a lying sociopath who caved to political pressure to at least pretend not to be racist, having already turned the White House into home base for the Alt-Right.
Urban Translation: You made your move too slow, asshole!
