Sometimes he reigns in his excessive rhetoric, and I am so relieved. Much of the time though, as a man, a husband, an American, and a Republican, I find Trump's behavior extremely disturbing. FWIW I would vote for him again, over HRC. Nonetheless, I think that Trump is an embarrassment to the nation. I would love to have the opportunity to vote against him. So, I agree with the points that Russ and Patrick have tried to make. At some level, I suspect that you agree with them too.
I don't find Donald Trump to be an embarrassment at all. He is a human being, with Human emotions. He is attacked incessantly and I would argue that he is attacked in the most despicable, vile manner that any President In US history has ever been attacked.
You tell me which President in any decade, hell in any century of the founding of this country who has been routinely referred to in the most VILE descriptors that this man has had hurled at him?
And he has endured these vile labels from none other than Press people.
Tell me something Jim, if you were going to work every single day of your life and during every hour of that life from the time you awoke until the time you went to bed, you were called Hitler, hater, evil, a rapist, a sexist, a homophobe, a bigot, a xenophobe, the devil, etc..., how exactly would you respond?
When Barack Obama was referred to by Joe Wilson as a liar, you would have thought that Joe Wilson called for his assassination. The Calls for Joe Wilson to grovel at the feet of President Barack Obama, came from everyone in the press along with every Democrat from one end of this nation to the other.
Even Republicans joined in to bash Joe Wilson.
Today, Press people call President Donald Trump the most vile names from pedophile to Hitler himself and there isn't a peep out of anyone in the press to condemn their fellow press people and yet Maxine Waters herself has used her bully pulpit to denigrate this President in every way possible.
Can you even IMAGINE what would have come down, if some conservative politician in public office had referred to Barack Obama in the same vile fashion that Maxine Waters and Other Leftist Democrats have routinely referred to Donald Trump?
There would have been an all out civil war in this country or the town in which the person who made the utterance lived, would have been burned to the ground by out of control leftists.
That is an undeniable fact.
Where is anyone at all to defend Donald Trump being able to respond to these non-stop attacks?
I guess he is simply supposed to take it?
They attack his wife. They attack her like they've never attacked any First Lady. Where are those on your side of the political aisle to call them out for their vile attacks on her?
She wears a hat on a trip to S. Africa and they attack her as a supporter of Aparteid.
His son is attacked and some asshole says he should be put in a cage and sodimized by a pedophile. Where have those been on your side of the political aisle who are happy to say he's an embarrassment, to call out these people who attack his entire family?
These Democrats are the biggest hypocrites on Planet Earth.
And Trump typically only strikes back when he's attacked.
This week he has deferred to every wish that George H. W. Bush's family has asked of this President.
He's not an embarrassment at all IMO. He hits back hard, and I prefer that over just taking their garbage. If we had a fair and objective press, Donald Trump wouldn't have to resort to defending himself, but he doesn't and we don't, and so we are stuck with hitting back.
He has to stick up for himself and his family. God knows you guys won't. You'll be right there though to pile on..
I guess That's just the way it is..
