Be­ing pres­i­dent is too hard for Trump

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Trump and Comey

Phew — close call. FBI head Comey should be thank­ing his lucky stars! He may be one of the few who come out of the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion fiasco with some in­tegrity left. (Iron­i­cally, Trump was will­ing to keep Flynn on un­til the story broke in the news de­spite prior se­ri­ous se­cu­rity warn­ings ... hmmm.)

The thought that a Third World War could be set off with some­thing called a “tweet” is mind-bog­gling.

It seems one lie begets an­other in close suc­ces­sion, each one more bizarre than the last. Dozens of sur­ro­gates re­peat­ing lies does not mag­i­cally cre­ate facts.

Fill­ing a swamp with bil­lion­aires does not turn the swamp into a lux­ury swim­ming pool.

Why is it that the most in­se­cure peo­ple are the big­gest bul­lies? When did “al­ter­na­tive facts” be­come syn­ony­mous with truth?

There is no joy in watch­ing a hu­man be­ing im­plode on the world stage.

It is ob­vi­ous that Trump wanted to win at all costs, but he re­ally didn’t want to “be” pres­i­dent. Too much work. Can’t boss peo­ple around like a blus­tery busi­ness mogul. Have to act within the law. No won­der Trump says he misses his old life.

Re­mem­ber the adage: one rot­ten ap­ple can spoil the bar­rel. Some of the apples in that bar­rel were good, hon­est apples — how will they end up is any­body’s guess. Paula Kent Kuch­mey, Cale­do­nia
