Trying to respect president
Like many people, I am having trouble respecting President Trump. I am grateful that so far he has not started a nuclear war, but otherwise I find nothing to respect. Sorry.
First, he attacked President Obama with the incredulous birther movement, also disrespecting Hawaii when we showed the proper birth certificate as well as newspaper notices of President Obama’s birth. Barack Obama is a brilliant and compassionate human being who rose to greatness without the proverbial silver spoon, while Donald Trump is so spoiled and so selfish that he is barely distinguishable from Kim Jong Un.
Second, our current president respects only ruthless dictators (like Putin and Duterte) and white supremacists (such as neo-Nazis and the KKK), while he disrespects all his competitors by constantly referring to them with cruel nicknames like “Little Marco” and “Lying Ted” and “Crooked Hillary.”
Third, he surrounds himself with people dedicated to destroying the environment, public education and the public trust.
But because he is our president, I am trying to respect him. Maybe the headline “Wish you weren’t here” was a little much, but the signs that proclaimed “Welcome to Kenya” were just perfect. Charlie Webb Kona
