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. After that sordid episode, the apologetic Left lost all credibility as an arbiter of presidential norms. …

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump arrived in Saudi Arabia today.
Melania struck a blow for female equality by not wearing a veil, by wearing pants, and by shaking hands with the Saudi king! Isn’t she lovely?

Liberal legal authorities are on a roll lately, and there seems to be a theme to their madness: Motivation. Intent. Bias.
A recent Supreme Court ruling, supported by all the progressive judges plus (as usual) Judge Anthony Kennedy, overturned a very long-standing principle of jurisprudence–a centuries old principle–thus opening a can of worms so large that even Kong would be hard pressed to defeat its denizens.

In January of 2016, when Hillary Clinton was a private citizen, persons in her presidential campaign coordinated with a group of people, one of whom was in contact with the Chinese ambassador, who wanted
to have an informal, private, off the record get together with a few of us to discuss the next year and the current state of US-China affairs. He asked me to host a social meal at my house in the next month. He was fairly insistent and indicated that he wanted to pass along some perspectives. [emphasis added to quotes]

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.
