Re: “White House cuts CNN reporter’s access,” Thursday election briefs.
There is a reason parents don’t swear or use abusive language in front of their children. They are role models, as they should be. Over and over, editorials and opinion pieces beg us to use civility and restraint when addressing each other. Yet our potty-mouth-in-chief continues to model rude and divisive language and bullying behavior.
In the latest example, he called a CNN reporter a “rude and a terrible person.” His supporters think this is just fine because he’s being “plainspoken” and “speaking truth to power.”
The majority of American citizenry should take the high road and set an example for him and his minions, while they appeal to baser instincts and follow from behind.
