I thought I knew my regular taxi driver pretty well, and apparently he thought he knew me. When he picked me up the other day he said, “Did you hear? The leader of Iran wanted to come to the United Nations to ask for help for his country, but Trump wouldn’t let him enter the USA. Something about not having done his paperwork on time.”
Later I decided he was telling me a joke (only because it wasn’t in the news). I said at the time, “That’s terrible! That’s awful!”
He said “Yeah it is, isn’t it.”
So I’ve decided (a)That he’s a Trump man telling a joke to Trump supporters
(b) He thought I was for Trump and would laugh.
(c)He had no idea I was so gullible as to believe him.
(d)He’ll find out who I’m for next time he picks me up, if he doesn’t already know. Still, I’m embarrassed by my naivete.
