“Good morning, Ted.”
“Hey, Dennis, I guess you heard about Trumps fights with the courts. He must be pissed. I don’t know why they don’t just let him do his job and see what happens. I can see where he’s coming from. He was born rich, everything he ever wanted was provided for him. They had servants. In business he was always the boss, so if anybody did anything he didn’t like he’d fire them. He’s not used to taking orders. I know, he’s a womanizer. Hell, I’ve been that myself a few times. As far as the refugees are concerned, I don’t want them coming here taking our jobs.”
“Ted, you don’t have a job. Nobody will be taking anything away from you.”
“Well, I know that, but they’ll be covered under our health care. We’ll be paying for their housing.”
“Isn’t that the situation that you’re in now? Have you had a chance to see a doctor about your medication?”
“The woman that you saw me with the other day, the chubby one, is my worker. She’s going to get everything sorted out. I should see a doctor soon because I’ve been having a pain in my lung. I think it may be pneumonia. Do you know anything about that?”
I said, “I’ve had pneumonia. You’ll need antibiotics. It’s very serious.”
“Yeah, I’ve heard that you can die from it.
“I guess Trudeau will be meeting with Trump next week. I wonder how that will go. His father was tough, but Justin may be too polite. He is a boxer, I hope he doesn’t take any shit from Trump. The US is our biggest trading partner. Anything Trump does affects Canada.”
“I hope it goes well, otherwise he may build a wall and have us pay for it.”
