Is There Anything Trump Can't Do?! An Unbelievable Trip to the DMV
A recurring meme on Instapundit is: IS THERE ANYTHING TRUMP CAN’T DO?
In December, four or five weeks after Donald Trump's election upset, a faithful reader of No Pasarán knew he could no longer put off a trip to the Department of Motor Vehicles in the Dallas area to get his driver's license renewed.
Fully expecting something like a 3- to 4-hour stay, he let out a long sigh, set aside half a day to the task, prepared a ton of reading material to bring with him, and, carrying a heavy bag filled with magazines and books (no, not War and Peace), took off with a strong sense of foreboding.
He parked his car, did the sign of the cross, and walked the last few steps to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
When he opened the door, he did a double take: could he have chosen the wrong building? He stepped out again, and checked the address again. Inside, there were no crowds, no chairless people standing around in the aisles, no noise, no nothing — the DMV waiting room was virtually empty.
Almost before he had a chance to sit down, there were only two people in front of him. Not five minutes later, his name, or his number, was called.
Indeed, the time to process the information for the driver's license renewal took longer than the waiting time, and within 10 to 15 minutes, he was exiting the vehicle, on his way to his car.
He was giddy, he testified. Almost teary-eyed.
Wasn't this a sign? Wasn't this a sign that Donald Trump's presidency promised to be a success?
PS: Knowing that nobody would ever believe the tale without evidence, he managed to snap out of his disbelief and snap a photograph of the waiting room…
(We can't promise anything, but if you live in the Dallas area, this DPS office is on Jupiter Road, South of Interstate 635…)
