It’s not OK
With a rousing salute to Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff, an earnest, honorable, and courageous public servant:
It is not okay for the president of our nation to behave in a brutish and/or irrational manner from day to day.
It is not okay for tens of millions of ill-informed American voters to defend his actions blindly.
It is not okay for leaders of the Republican Party to support him in lockstep or in silence.
It is not okay for the president to impugn the integrity of the press at large.
It is not okay for him and his family members to profit financially on the basis of the office he holds.
What could Donald Trump do to redeem himself in the eyes of his countrymen and people around the world?
In a word, nothing.
