It's a different The Donald this Monday, after the carnage of Friday to his Trumpcare dream - and campaign promise.
As you can see in this video, it's a subdued president saluting women entrepreneurs. He seems to be reading from a script versus verbally shooting from the hip. He looks old and bloated.
The issue is: Can the Trump Administration win over females? During the long campaign women seemed to be in two categories in the mind of Trump: beautiful and not-beautiful.
Obviously, The Donald needs all the support he can get. The financial community is no longer happy-clappy. They looked forward to "reforms" such as gutting Dodd-Frank. But there is doubt if Trumpism can be implemented. The new guys in the White House don't seem to understand how the power game operates.
Vanity Fair asks if the Trump stock bubble is ready to burst. The Dow plunged today. That spooked investors. Expect the shorts to be out.
Meanwhile all those consulting firms and think tanks which hoped to do business with government may be suffering a setback. The buzzphrase "policy paralysis" has entered mainstream talk.
A few weeks ago I began doing work on those bylined executive pieces through which clients get acquired.
That was at Deloitte Center for Government Insights. I had a negative experience. And left to return to ghostwriting a book on cognitive therapy and modules on climate change for an online teaching company.
But had I produced any opinion-editorials they might have been like those sermons written by Beatles' character Father McKenzie that no one will read. Inside the beltway, it might be increasingly difficult for decision-makers to pay attention. To anything. Especially proposals.
