"But what about Obama! And bush! And Clinton! And Hilary's emails! That sell out Bernie sanders!"
Problem is, we aren't talking about them, we are talking about our current president, who lies continuously, and freely makes up "facts", but also has
decided anything negative about him, is a lie. He even went as far as firing Sally Yates for saying she wasn't sure of the legality of the travel ban,
and while I can agree her approach was lacking, I think the way she was let go, is deeply troubling.
"But all politicians lie! Obama Obama Obamaaaaaaaa!"
Yes, but, at least most of them were lying snakes that exercised something called restraint. There's also the matter of a level of decorum that's
expected from the highest office in the land. I think it's reasonable to expect the president to have enough restraint, to not run crying to Twitter
every time someone says something he doesn't like.
If we can't expect restraint from something as simple, and as inherent to the presidency, as criticism, what sort of restraint can we expect in other
As for Obama, since we cannot say one thing about Trump without Obama immediately coming up...... he faced a ton of criticism, as did michelle, with a
hell of a lot more grace than Trump could ever hope to achieve in a million years. I may not have always agreed with him, but I can respect that he
took his lashings without going on a Twitter tirade every single time someone said something he didn't like. I'm not saying he was a good president,
but Trump could take a lesson from him on how to handle the criticism inherent to his new position.
