RESPECT? Impossible

Do not say to your children (or anyone else) ‘show respect for the president.’  We have as the leader of our county a man who on ever so many occasions show that he is unworthy of respect, that he is a despicable being who deserves loathing.  I say this not out of hatred or spite but on the evidence that consistently arises to show this man for who he is, his own words reflecting stupidity that is made more profound by the arrogance that accompanies it.  He is arrogant about his stupidity and this reflects on how stupid he really is for to be arrogant about one’s stupidity is to not see how stupid one is, how ridiculous and absurd what one says really is.

Today’s idiotic tweet, compounded by the viciousness of the “thinking” behind it, is but the latest example of the attack dog mentality, of the profound nastiness of he who is the president, the bullying nature of this man without a bit of decency or good sense, furthers our decent into a hell of truly bad people in high places setting new standards for what is and is not acceptable.

From NY Times article

“Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, also a Republican, wrote on Twitter, “Mr. President, your tweet was beneath the office and represents what is wrong with American politics, not the greatness of America.”

Lindsey Graham is so very right.
