America is already too great for Donald Trump to lead

Just for the sake of argument, let’s say that you agree that Donald Trump will be able to make Mexico pay billions and billions — and even more billions of dollars for a 30-foot wall through the desert (taking American citizens’ land along the Rio Grande as an added bonus), and that it’s fine that he registers every person who practices the Islamic religion.

I’ll grudgingly give you that for a minute.

What I don’t understand is how you can turn a blind eye to Trump’s disrespect to John McCain — a Vietnam veteran and former prisoner of war — his making fun of a man in a wheelchair, his urging to pay attorney fees if someone beats up a protester and his total lack of respect to the parents who lost a son in war while saving his comrades.

He is not fit to lead this (already) great country.
