Thin-skinned Trump only one who is attacking
As President Trump keeps hitting back — more often than not below the waist — against the perceived attacks from the news media, I find it worth stepping back and noting the difference between being criticized and being attacked.
The dictionary defines “criticize” as “to censure or find fault with” or “to judge or discuss the merits and faults of.”
Look up “attack” and you find “to blame or abuse violently or bitterly” as well as “to try to destroy, especially with verbal abuse.”
It seems clear to me only one of the involved parties is actually attacking: It’s the thin-skinned president of the United States, who for all his bluster, is simply a man of little substance, a superficial namby-pamby and a picture-perfect bully.
Every school in our area has signs to show that bullying will not be tolerated. Why do we as a nation, along with our elected officials, find it acceptable in the Oval Office?
