Are You Crying? There’s No Crying!

There’s no crying in baseball!

Do you remember the movie, A League of Their Own with Tom Hanks who coached a group of women playing baseball during WWII?

During that time there weren’t enough men to play as many were in service so, Cubs owner Walter Harvey convinced owners to begin an All American Girls Professional Baseball League.

The movie was an entertaining fictional account of American History.

At one point in the movie, a washed up former major leaguer, and somewhat older male Manager (Tom Hanks) of the ‘Peaches,’ reprimands one of his players who begins to cry.

Tom Hanks character comes back at her; “Are you crying?  There’s no crying! There’s no crying in baseball!”

President Trump did say on the campaign trail, being President would be easy compared to what he does every day.

Well, the President of the United States can’t get easier work.  He can’t publicly wish for his previous life because it was easier.  There’s no crying.  He can’t cry out because it was easier to be the dictator of his own company.

It doesn’t work that way.  Trump doesn’t own the United States.   We have checks, and balances.  He’s answerable to other entities within the government.

He will, by his own admission have to work harder than he had thought he would have to work.  This was going to be harder than the work he did in private life.

If it is too difficult, too much work.  I might suggest abdicating the autocracy.  It’s okay, go back to your easier way of life, and succeed.

I agree, it’s probably easier to get a multi-billion dollar stipend from daddy, riding on that tiny stipend,  and calling it work.  Very easy work.

He seems content to work in that environment which I think he still maintains an active role.  I just think he’s frustrated as to what he said was an easier job during the campaign is getting in the way.  

There’s no crying from the President’s chair!!
