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.

Liberal legal authorities are on a roll lately, and there seems to be a theme to their madness: Motivation. Intent. Bias.

In an editorial published today, typically progressive numbnuts opined about what Dallas Chief of Police David Brown said recently, when he complained about how all of society’s problems are placed in the laps of the cops to solve.
This particular editorial did, for a change, include what Chief Brown said about how 70% of black kids are being raised by single mothers. Obviously, Chief Brown believes that’s a problem in and of itself–not having a father, that is. Of course he would believe that. He sees the fallout every single day.
