Mes­sage for pres­i­dent

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

Dear Don­ald: Please tell me, if you have noth­ing to hide from the Amer­i­can peo­ple, why are you are be­ing so ob­struc­tive and con­stantly is­su­ing “smoke­screens” to de­ter from the facts? If, as you say, all the in­for­ma­tion that has been “un­cov­ered” by your se­cu­rity agen­cies, FBI and what I con­sider re­li­able news agen­cies is “fake news,” then it should not con­cern you! As pres­i­dent, your life, fam­ily (es­pe­cially those who have “se­cu­rity clear­ance”) and, of course, your tax re­turns should be an open book.

To quote from the Bard, “The lady [or in this case the gen­tle­man] doth protest too much, me­thinks.”

In case you are won­der­ing about the mean­ing of this quote, it in­di­cates doubt in some­one’s sin­cer­ity.

Un­til you start be­hav­ing pro­fes­sion­ally and, dare I say, “pres­i­den­tial,” the 65 to 70 per­cent of peo­ple who view your pres­i­dency neg­a­tively with un­fa­vor­able rat­ings, might, just might view your pres­i­dency in a more pos­i­tive light, but I sin­cerely doubt it. From ob­ser­va­tion, be­hav­ing pro­fes­sion­ally and “pres­i­den­tial” is be­yond your ca­pa­bil­i­ties.
