A Lecture I attended today

It was sponsored by 

My ticket came via good friends Ron and Char who were unable to use their season ticket today.

The Lecture was given by



 Hedrick Smith, Pulitzer Prize-winning former New York Times reporter and editor and Emmy award-winning producer/correspondent, is one of America's most distinguished journalists. His current best-seller, Who Stole the American Dream?, is a portrait of the past 30 years of U.S. political and economic history. 

In 26 years with The New York Times, Mr. Smith served in Saigon, Cairo, Paris, and as bureau chief in Moscow and Washington. In 1971 he was on the Pulitzer Prize-winning team for the Pentagon Papers series. In 1974 he won the Pulitzer Prize for his reporting from Russia and Eastern Europe. 



Smith's Lecture was titled "How Has President Trump Delivered for His Constituents? "


The answer is "very well" if you are a part of Trump's Core 

Constituency: White Evangelicals, White Males without a College 

Degree, and the rural poor.


Hedrick Smith's lecture was cold comfort for leftish and liberal 

voters such as I.




In my opinion Trump is a con artist "par excellence", and a Snake Oil salesman "sans pariel".

Giggle with me in that I can only use the French language to express my dismay and despair at the actions and inactions of the Trump Presidency.
