Obama’s ego is something, and that’s no secret. He is just has self-centered and self-serving as he has ever been if not more…even after it’s been made obvious that his entire 8 years in the White House has been a waste of time.
Where his failed policies did nothing for America and now America is about to shut them all down.
His legacy? He sure likes to talk about that doesn’t he? Well, the only legacy he has on his resume is the fact that he was the most divisive President ever in the history of United States Presidents.
Now, that fact is really about to bite him in the ass.
President-elect Donald Trump has two special bibles he will be using for his inauguration.
The first is a relic of special and sacred meaning, the second is very enduring.
As his first Bible he will using Abraham Lincoln’s bible that was used for Lincoln’s March 4, 1861, inauguration which came just six weeks before the firing on Fort Sumter in Charleston, S.C., at the start of the Civil War.
The symbolism is powerful in this, and Lincoln’s address back when things were so divided as well, had a very strong unity theme to it.
“We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies,” Lincoln said then. “Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection.”
“The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature,”
The fact that Trump has chosen this relic as his inauguration bible says a lot about what he plans to do with this country.
The division, the hatred, the continued chaos that has been nurtured under Obama’s reign will no longer go unattended.
Trump is not a leader to lead from behind, as Obama is…and things are about to change around here.

His second bible is also symbolic… the unit of “The Family” has been massively attacked for years now but really took hits during the 8 years Obama was in the White House.
However, Trump will also be using the bible his Mother gave him back on June 12th, 1955 when he graduated from Sunday Church Primary School. He was just 2 days away from his 9th birthday when she gifted it to him. His Mother with whom he was very close with died back in 2000. So his choice to use her gifted bible is one that comes with fond memories, and strong family values.
This middle finger to Obama…is in fact, a beautiful thing.
