America deserves better
We return to the subject of Donald Trump once again. But, of course, there is that feeling that the current President of the United States will, as long as he is in the White House, always be a subject for comment. It does not do Americans any good that they have today clearly the worst leader, in terms of qualification and experience and temperament, who embarrasses the country every day.
Nearly half of the staff who came to office with him have gone. He has dismissed his Secretary of State. Charges of sexual misconduct, of efforts to silence the women he has had sex with through payments of hush money have been making the rounds. And yet Trump is not embarrassed at all. Now his personal lawyer has had his office and home searched by the FBI, with sensitive documents taken away as part of the Bob Mueller investigation.
That last bit would make any man careful about the consequences. But for Trump it was a new call to battle. His tantrums this past week have been nothing like the ones before. He is angry with his attorney general, with the deputy attorney general and with Bob Mueller. His anger and his desire to put these three men in their places, perhaps by dismissing at least one of them, has led him to cancel his trip abroad for a summit of heads of state in the Americas.
Trump has been warned by his fellow Republicans not to come between Mueller and his investigations. If he does not heed these warnings, he will pave the path to his own destruction. America deserves much better than Donald Trump.
