I don’t think at this point that Pr*sident Trump’s abysmal public standing is mostly about his horrific policies, though it should be. Rather, even conservatives expect the President of the United States of America to display some measure of dignity and class. Because Trump is possessed of nary a smidgen of either, but is rather the ultimate lout and buffoon…you get the point.
Pr*sident Trump’s mercurial, largely ignorant approach to foreign policy is frightening.
If Donald Trump thought his publicity stunt in Syria would make Americans feel better about his leadership skills and end Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons against his own people, he was sorely mistaken.
According to a new poll from ABC News/Washington Post, a larger number of Americans are less confident in the president than they are more confident because of his ineffective, politically motivated strike on Syria, and the vast majority of people think it won’t do much to help the situation in the region.
Prof. Juan Cole’s take on a recent poll, presented in detail.
So this is the guy with the nuclear codes. The guy with the power, as things evolved through the 20th century, unilaterally to declare war. The guy who presides over a trillion-dollar a year security and military complex. Who has several hundred thousand people spying on us all. The guy who issues executive orders, which now make up about 1/3 of all of our national legislation, and who does so by fiat.
And 63 percent of you think he isn’t level-headed? And, like, this wasn’t apparent to you all the way through 2016?
I mean, is this a joke? You put a flake (isn’t that what you mean by “not level-headed”?) in the most powerful office in the world? What, did you think it would be entertaining, sort of like one of those asteroid movies where in the end there is no way to stop it from destroying most of the earth? Did your mother drop you on your head?
