Presidential, and Former Presidential, Behavior

What is appropriate behavior for a president? That topic is much in the news lately. Consider these excerpts from a most-excellent article by Victor Davis Hanson, on the topic of President Trump’s tweets: [emphasis added to quotes]

Start with the given that there are now regrettably few accepted norms of presidential behavior. Trump’s occasional uncouthness is a symptom, not a catalyst, of the times. Bill Clinton redefined presidential behavior when he had sexual relations with a 22-year-old, unpaid intern (so much for power imbalances as sexual harassment) in the presidential bathroom off the Oval Office, lied about his recklessness to his family and the country, smeared Monica Lewinsky, and then wheeled out to the Rose Garden feminist cabinet officers like Madeline Albright and Donna Shalala to deny and defend his unsavory predatory behavior.

Obama’s Spokesperson Says President Trump Opposes Religious Discrimination

Senator Barack Hussein Obama, erstwhile president of the USA, has apparently instructed his spokesperson to defend President Donald J. Trump’s executive order that puts a hold on entry into the USA of people from 7 countries on an Obama-era terror watch list and that also halts admission of Syrian refugees into the USA for a few months. Obama himself issued such a hold in 2011 on refugees from Iran and, more recently, removed protection from refugees from Cuba. At the time, nobody accused Obama of religious, cultural, or ethnic discrimination.
