A president is the leader of a country. His role is to govern, but he is not like a king or an emperor, his powers are limited by The Constitution and the Parliament. Nowadays, presidents are put under pressure by lobbies and private interests. It's hard to govern without support and allies. The economy is the main concern for every state, and it depends a lot on the big corporations. It's better for the president to have the corporation on his side, but by doing so, he often betrays the people who elected him, the common citizens.

Denzel was the first black to be elected president in a country outside of Africa. This particular country was even the most powerful country in the world. Ironically, a country that enslaved his race for centuries in the past. He was from "Philadelphia", and when he won the elections, he had to move to the White House, a very "Safe House" with many bodyguards 24 hours a day. He felt very comfortable living in Washington, it sounded just right with his family name. Having him as a new president gave an impression of "Déjà Vu". Denzel or George? It don't matter if you're black or white said the King of Pop. George was the first white president of the country, Denzel, the first black president, and soon I guess, will come the first yellow president.

Denzel was a "Man on Fire", full of "Virtuosity". He was a "Carbon Copy" of George, that would explain his skin color. But like George, he was not interested in "Power", or "Glory". He just wanted to free his people, black americans, from segregation. In the same way, George wanted to free his people, white americans, from Great Britain.

Denzel was a religious man, he believed in God like his hero Martin Luther King. Religion is one of the reason muslim "Malcolm X" was not his hero. He was also very emotional and it showed in some of his speech about freedom.

"Cry Freedom"

And he began to cry,... and all the crowd who listened to him cried too, because he was the president. And it ended with a big ovation as it always does in Denzel's country. They love to be moved by speeches coming from the heart. This is called having a "Heart Condition". The crowd also like when Mr. President makes a mistake and make public apologies. It happened once with Denzel when he cheered up the crowd during a meeting shouting:

"For Queen and Country"

It should have been: "For President and Country". He had forgotten for a second that George had freed America from the Queen (of England) some two hundreds years and something ago.

He was deeply in love with the First Lady, his wife. Some of his political enemies knew she was the power behind the thrown, and criticized him publicly to be more influenced by a woman than by the lobbies. He just answered jokingly to elude the negative comments:

"She is the "Devil in the Blue Dress". (she often wore a blue dress)

And the political enemies taking it seriously would say.

"No, no, she is not the Devil! The Devil always dress in red! Blue is the color of Heaven."

All the scene was just ridiculous. But aren't politicians ridiculous most of the time, even if they try to be taken seriously?

Denzel was a brilliant orator, a great public speaker, very charismatic. But at the the end of his presidency, the people were quite frustrated. He had talked so much, and had done so little. But it's really hard to come after a president like W Bush, and before a president like Trump. He was the patty of the hamburger squeezed between the buns (W Bush and Trump). So, if after Trump comes another black president, then another Trump . How would it end? It would probably end in a Big Mac. That would mean more money for McDonald's, and less money for the people. Welcome to America!

To leave the crowd with a positive image of their president, let's talk about his talents at public speaking.

"At the end of the day, it's not about what you have or even what you've accomplished. It's about what you've done with those accomplishments. Its about who you've lifted up, who you've made better. It's about what you've given back"

That was said during his farewell speech. He knew his people needed to be cheered up cause the elected president Trump was about to step in, and he knew everybody would have a hard time.

"Don't aspire to make a living, aspire to make a difference."

Since The Great Recession started, just before Denzel took office, people worried about making a living. Many struggle so much, they don't have time to think about making a difference. Mr. President should have made a difference in their lives. Most of them are still waiting. And with Trump coming, I'm afraid they will have to wait forever.

"Do what you gotta do so you can do what you wanna do."

Do your duty, so, you are allowed to do what you want (like). If everybody in the country do it this way, it should work. But it don't. What's the problem?! The problem is "CORRUPTION, CORRUPTION, AND... CORRUPTION."

I told you Denzel was a religious man, and very emotional. He won the heart of his people talking from the heart at first. It was before they realized the big change would not happen.

"Put God first in everything you do ... Everything that I have is by the grace of God, understand that. It's a gift ... I didn't always stick with Him, but He stuck with me."

What about giving the Pope political power to lead a country. Maybe it would work better than with all these presidents who talk about God.

"Why do we close our eyes when we pray, cry, kiss, or dream? Because the most beautiful things in life are not seen but felt by the heart."

I totally agree with that. But people want tangible results. They have to pay the bills at the end of the month, they have to eat, go to the doctor, go on holidays, buy the new iPhone,... Everything that can be seen and not felt by the heart.

"So, goodnight Denzel. Diplomacy, soft power and to negotiate are great tools. But sometimes, you need to kick the ass of assholes like: The National Rifle Association (gun lobby), the Fossil fuels lobby (oil lobby), the agribusiness lobby, the chemical industry lobby, Wall Street..."
