How Not to Be President

My friends and I have often debated How Not to Be President.  I think this kind of debate is a normal occurrence.  As much as I have disliked recent Presidents for actions that do more harm than good I have never looked at a President and have seen someone of so little ability that competence became a question.  The Donald has done that, taught us How not to Be President.  The Donald is not providing for the common good – when you expose secrets that are so secret that allies are not told them and expose them to citizens of countries that have not been our friend, you are doing something no other President has done.  And it is bad.

How Not to Be President

“There is nothing Donald Trump loves more than a great superlative. He builds the tallest hotels. He is the most successful businessman. His inaugural crowds were the biggest ever. None of these claims are remotely true, no matter how exaggerated the adjective nor how emphatic the delivery.

But after his alleged blabbing of highly classified intelligence to the Russians, Trump can now lay claim to the greatest superlative of any sitting president: he is the biggest bozo of them all. Bigger than the Bush who thought invading Iraq would be easy. Bigger than the biggest president who got stuck in his bathtub.

Trump is the most unpatriotically reckless, most flamboyantly ignorant, most ludicrously incompetent of them all. Never mind The Apprentice, he’s actually The Biggest Loser.

There are only a few explanations for why the 45th president of the United States would reveal the most sensitive intel about Isis capabilities to one of the least trustworthy countries on the planet. The Washington Post reported that Trump shared classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador about an Isis threat. After all, this intel is so sensitive that we haven’t shared it with our real allies for fear of disclosing vital sources and methods. Even the denials from the White House look pathetically brief. It was the desire to suppress this intel from the official account of the Russian meeting that led to the collective face-palm of the US intelligence community.”  https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/may/16/intel-russia-donald-trump-president-vladimir-putin
