Would King Solomon kiss President Trump on the lips for being honest and wise. Did he use the good guy, bad guy, negotiation tactic successfully?

In my previous post, King Solomon, A Wise Activist, I brought up the issue of NFL kneeling during the National Anthem brings about divisiveness rather than unity for a cause..

This news article about tonight’s’ football game states the Green Bay Packers will lock arms to demonstrate unity for the causes as stated..

Good Guy, Bad Guy Negotiation Tactic

This is often seen on TV in the good cop, bad cop routine that is often seen in police dramas. It can also be a subconscious pattern for parents, where one parent tries to impose discipline by demanding compliance after which the other seems to get it easily by gentle request.

What the good guy says often gives the target person an excuse to comply, allowing them to rationalize their action and retain dignity. Sometimes the person complies with the good guy as an act of revenge to ‘teach the bad guy manners’. (Source HERE)

King Solomon

Like a kiss on the lips is the one who gives an honest answer. ( Proverb 24:26)

The king shows favor to a wise servant, but his wrath falls on one who acts shamefully. (Proverb 14;35)  

In My Opinion

Kneeling during the National Anthem was shameful and foolish.

Regardless of what you may personally think about President Trump tactics, he is bringing  about the end of a shameful practice by being honest about his personal feelings.
