No matter what you love or hate, support or oppose, there's probably a day, a week, or a month that has been dedicated to it. Today is no exception, being National Teflon Day.
National Teflon Day is observed each year on this date to honor the accidental invention of Teflon™ on April 6, 1938, by Dr. Roy Plunkett.
The slipperiness of Teflon, which allows it to protect objects by preventing potentially damaging substances to stick to them, has led to the use of the name to describe individuals who somehow consistently manage to avoid blame for their misdeeds. John Gotti, the former head of the Gambino crime family, was known as "The Teflon Don" for his ability to evade prosecution and conviction for his activities. And Mr Trump has clearly been triple-dipped in Teflon, which is the only possible reason he has consistently been able to avoid ostracism for his crude behavior, disproven lies, and exaggerations.
Happy National Teflon Day. We can always use a bit less friction.
Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.
