Okay, so before we even get started I am not making any political statements here! I think all the presidents do that well enough for themselves. And that’s what today is all about, those presidents with a sense of humor about the world, and themselves. After all, if we can’t laugh at the way things are, all that’s left is to cry.
So the today started in 1984 when President Ronald Reagan thought his mic was just being tested when he said, “My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you that I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes”. Unfortunately his mic was live and heard by the nation. However, known for a sense of humor, Reagan was allowed such gaffes.
Today, I feel, we all take what Presidents say way too seriously. And of course the media repeats it over and over, trying to say what they think the President meant. They don’t know any better than we individuals do, they just like to hear their own voice as they explain everything, right or wrong.
We disrespect our leaders by putting their faces on such things as toilet paper. Replace it with your own face and see how you would feel! Is it still funny? Does it have anything to do with the person themselves? Most presidents just represent the feelings of their base, not really caring about the other half of the country. Why should they, we are the joke to them!
Is it that we can’t take a joke anymore or that we are the joke ourselves? Either way ,lighten up a bit and laugh with the president instead of at him. The whole world wil be a better place for it.
How to celebrate – Listen closely to the president and learn his sense of humor. Don’t take everything a president says so seriously. Go back in history and learn who the funniest presidents have been.
