To me, Donald Trump being president of the United States is not a Republican/Democrat issue. It’s an American issue, and ultimately a world issue. There are so many problems here, but for now I’ll focus on one: sounding like a president.
I’ve listened to every president, Republican and Democrat, from the 23rd on (starting with Benjamin Harrison). They all had one thing in common: all of them sounded like they could be president of the United States. With one exception: Donald Trump.
Admittedly, when Donald Trump is reading a script written by someone else, Trump sounds like a president. But when Trump speaks words that actually come from the mind of Donald, we have what’s in the caption. And more. We have narcissism, paranoia, immorality, lies, and, in this speech, almost incoherent rambling.
Yes, we’ve had elements of all the above in other presidents. But none of them came close to The Donald. Donald Trump, by speech and actions, continually violates the values of the conservative Republicans and Evangelical Christians who supported the man, or veers off into incoherency. I keep hoping that the Republican Party and Evangelical Christians will return to their own values and stop supporting a supreme commander who is supremely unqualified for what is arguably the most important position in the United States of America.
In my opinion, the president of the United States should at least be able to communicate effectively and intelligently without having to use someone else’s words.
In the words of Donald Trump, “And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right?”
