I know I should show more respect to The Big Dump, but it seems to me respect is a two way street, and since he's shown no respect for those of us that opposed him, in fact has ridiculed those of us who don't fall into line with his point of view, he'll get no respect from me. I think he's a disgrace, to the office, and to the American people. I think he's by far the biggest threat to our democracy we've ever faced, and that includes communism. At least with communism, you could fight them, as everyone was united behind our loathing of their system. 

 

But with him, he's trying to pit us against ourselves, divide us, and trying to make us doubt what we see on the news. I've said before, I'm no fan of the sensationalism and desire to entertain being put before facts, but when push comes to shove, a free press is essential to finding out what's really going on. Now, granted, it takes viewing a wide variety of news stations to decide what is true, and most people don't want to put that kind of effort into it, but it can be done (that's another problem, for another time).
