trump: Others Should Apologize

So here’s the situation: We have a President-elect who is rude to the point of being crude, who bullies and intimidates and cheats and lies on a regular basis. He never apologizes to anyone, not even to God.

Last night the cast of Hamilton, the popular Broadway play, spoke at the end of the show to Mike Pence, who was in the audience. They told him that people were afraid and pleaded with him to humanize the work of trump. It was an extraordinary occurrence but was not a moral offense for which any kind of apology is due.

And this morning trump is demanding that the cast apologize. Apparently he thinks apologies are for other people to offer him, not for him to offer to others. He owes people and God ten thousand apologies. When he gives those apologies and humbly asks forgiveness, then he can call on others to apologize for their sins. Meanwhile, he has forfeited the moral right to demand apologies from anyone.

Unfortunately, our President-elect has no comprehension of moral issues and does not seem capable of recognizing when a moral offense has been committed. He is an utterly amoral creature.
