THE TWELVE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS DONALD TRUMP HAS TAUGHT ME (Thing No. 8):
Racial, ethnic and religious diversity make us stronger, better and, really, prettier to look at.
This is another one of those things that should have been obvious. But I really have not paid that much attention to diversity except from the perspective of the morality of public policy. After a few viewings of DJT’s rallies and all the angry white faces behind him, it was clear that all that pale skin covering all those smug, belligerent faces was not nearly as pleasing to the eye as the crowds I saw at the rallies held by Democrats during their primary campaign events.
Since then, I have watched President-Elect Biden introducing his nominees for the administration and I have seen a veritable rainbow of humanity. And there is so much intelligence, experience and talent. If it were nothing more than a beauty contest, the Democratic nominees would win hands down.
Wake up, Wilbur Ross. You’re short. You need to pack.
