It’s Not My Fault

Our friend Jeff sums up the present situation with our lack of leadership and the ‘man’ from whom we can expect nothing. Thank you, Jeff … your thoughts on this mirror my own.

On The Fence Voters

When a nation is in a moment of crisis, we expect our leaders to have a bare minimum of two traits: honesty and credibility. Unfortunately, as we wade through the ongoing worldwide pandemic of Covid-19, the United States of America is left wanting of such virtues in the current president.

As we all know, Donald Trump has an aversion to the truth like no other. I’ve called it pathological in this space more than a few times, and he’s done nothing to counteract that assessment. But it’s not just honesty and credibility we should expect of our leaders. We should also expect him or her to have humility. When things go wrong, as they always do in any presidential administration, at times, there needs to be a comeuppance. An acknowledgment, however painful it might be, that maybe I could have done things better, quickly followed by an “I promise to…

  1. Thank you for sharing!.. I believe I have already shared my thoughts about Donald Trump so I will not waste your precious space repeating myself… 🙂 as far as Trump’s mind goes it is all about him, nothing else.. he is merely playing a role, without his loyal minions around him he would be nothing.. 🙂
    The poor and middle class have fought battles in the trenches and are survivors, the rich and the elite are not… 🙂
    As Mark Twain said “It is not the size of the dog in a fight that matters, it is the size of the fight in the dog”.. 🙂

    Hope you and yours stays well and safe and each and every day is filled with love and happiness and life is all that you wish for it to be!.. 🙂

  2. Jill, I posted this on Jeff’s site. Jeff, well said. The words accountability, truthfulness, decency, leader, et al are not top of mind words to define the US president. Corrupt, deceitful, mercurial, bully et al sadly are such words.

    Donald Trump was mentored by attorney Roy Cohn who told him to never apologize and to sue everyone. Neither are good traits. But, we should remember Cohn was one of two advisors to one of the worst people ever to be a Senator – Joe McCarthy of communist witch hunt fame. The other one is some guy named Richard Nixon. Like the question asked of McCarthy by the Sec of the Army, it could be asked of Trump, “have you no sense of decency, sir?” Like McCarthy, he does not. Keith

    • Yes, Roy Cohn deserves as much blame as any, for Trump was obviously a good student in that sense. But, I think there was something inherently evil in Trump’s makeup, even long before Cohn got ahold of him, for I’ve read stories of terrible things he did as a youth, such as trying to shove another student out of a 2nd story window during a dispute over a toy.
