President’s Day makes us take a critical look at the current one

Today we celebrate the Presidents. Over the past 240 years we have had 45 men occupy the office. We have not always agreed with their stance on issues, but we have respected the office. In 2017 that has become difficult, but not impossible. We have got to respect the office, but the current occupant has to earn our respect, and that can not be achieved when the occupant is fast and loose with the truth. When we hear him talking about what happened in Sweden last night, and the Swedes ask “what is he smoking?” We have to recognize we have a problem. Throughout the campaign he made outrageous statements to the cheers of his adoring 40% and many said after the victory he would start acting presidential, but he has not changed. He is still loose with the tongue and that is to our detriment. Yes, he is the president and we can give up on the ridiculous thought that at some point he will start acting presidential. That is simply not going to happen.
