Trump’s Irresponsibility

Failure in Yemen? It’s the fault of the military. Protests at Congressional town halls? It’s Obama’s fault. Bad news about the White House? It’s the fault of the press.

Donald Trump, like a great many children before him, is incapable of passing the simplest test of adulthood: taking responsibility for oneself.

He blasts the press for citing unnamed sources when in fact he does the same thing all the time. Who in the world could count the number of baseless lies he has told? Sourceless “alternative facts” are his stock in trade. He completely lacks another of the simple tests of adulthood: integrity.

Making America great again? Ha! He — nearly unopposed by the Republicans — is making America into a shameful mess. Selfishness, self-centeredness, stinginess, dishonesty, hypocrisy, recklessness, irresponsibility: these are not the marks of greatness.  But they are the marks of our president, to our great shame.

I strongly urge you to call or write your congressmen and women to protest and resist the growing Hitlerian evil. Do not remain silent.
