I've been criticized, both for the frequency of, and the content of my posts showing no respect for Trump/ and/or the office of President. Believe me, I would like nothing better than to stop, but I see this as a crisis never before faced. Up until now, I have always respected the office of President, regardless if I'd agree with their policies, and that was my first intent, to give him a chance, but I quickly came to realize the shallow, unattractive exterior wasn't hiding a wise, compassionate interior, all he is is what you see. What respect has Trump shown anybody? He constantly lies, and is trying to make people distrust what they see with their own eyes in the media, ripping the FBI, etc. Showing no respect for any who disagree with him. Acting more like a wanna-be third world dictator in a China Shop. You must admit, no other past President is even remotely like him, because if they had have been, they never would have become President. To me, he represents our most primitive desires, thinking only of ourselves, crude and like our Neanderthal cousins. Believe me, I want to respect him, would like nothing better than to be able to, but I just can't. I believe with all my heart that he's a dangerous, vile human being, who cares nothing for America, besides what it can do for him.

 

Ask yourself this, would you want this caveman being a role model for your children? If the answer is no, congratulations, you're human. If the answer is yes, you're officially deluded by a con artist. Living in your idea of America would be a nightmare, everyone out for themselves, only. It would be like a constant seventh grade classroom. And, as I've heard so often, 'well, he must be doing something right, the stock market is soaring." If you believe money is the only true measure of a President, of a man, then yes, I suppose you have a point, if morals and basic human dignity are unimportant. What constitutes a patriot? I would argue that my speaking out against him does, because I love America and want nothing more than getting back to what makes, or used to, America great, and I don't mean a meaningless slogan on a hat, I mean pride, yes, but also compassion for others, even if they're from other countries.
