On June 23, The New York Times printed all of Trump’s lies since he became president; it took a smaller font to fit them all on a single page. Who among us viewed it for what it was — a wakeup call.
I am a logical person who sees the importance of utilizing critical-thinking skills. Each time I hear or read about an individual espousing Trump’s capabilities and/or the fact that we all should simply “give him a chance” as president, I am unable to compute that individual’s inability to cognitively, and objectively, interpret the reality our president.
Trump is a disaster. If he simply had one or two deficits in the role of president, I would accept it. But Trump’s presidency is on its way to redefining a new normal of behavior in our country. This new normal serves to undermine the civility of its citizens, it serves to undermine the credibility of our leader, and it serves to undermine our country’s reputation, influence and strength globally.
None of us should stand behind any president who willfully discards dignity, integrity and honesty. What does it say about us as a country, that many Americans do?
