Debasing the American Presidency


By: Donald V. Watkins

If the man who holds the office of President of the United States debases and disrespects it on a daily basis, how can we expect others to respect it? We cannot.


Trump, who found a way to avoid serving his nation in a military uniform during the Vietnam War, could not muster up the decency on Sunday to praise Vietnam War hero John McCain, who died of brain cancer on Saturday. Trump’s White House staff urged him to issue a press statement of praise for Senator McCain, but Trump was simply too petty and self-centered to do so. Instead, Trump issued a bland tweet of sympathy and prayers for the McCain family.


Every time Americans think they have experienced a new low with Donald Trump and his presidency, he takes us lower. Trump has turned the greatest public office on the planet into a non-stop series of Jerry Springer-like shows on lying, adultery, demagoguery, executive laziness, public corruption, duplicitous conduct, and showboating.


Trump has forced his Republican colleagues in Washington to embrace his morally bankrupt conduct and accept it as normal presidential behavior, which it is not. Trump publicly belittles and humiliates those Republicans who openly challenge his juvenile antics. Others in the Party and White House are terrified of him.


Only those who truly enjoy sniffing Trump’s smelly presidential flatulence can stand to be around him.

It sounds like you are reciting JFK's presidency..... who as a morally bankrupt man held public positions to return America to greatness that ironically mirrored many of Trumps. Large tax cuts and supply side economics is only one of the similarities that comes to mind.


He had over 1/2 the country under his spell, was beyond morally bankrupt, does nude swimming in…
