Come ON Already

Donald Trump unbosomed himself of yet another pair of catty and adolescent tweets this morning, resulting in the usual fuss. Yes, Mr. Trump has been the object of relentless personal assault, and the vilest invective, since he became a candidate, but we expect that sort of thing from the spoiled and sullen Left. Would it be too much to ask that the President refrain from such low — and above all, wholly counterproductive — gossip and sniping?

  1. Hey, it still isn’t Kaiser Wilhelm II and the Daily Telegraph levels of blunder. Besides, a theatrical President has to keep up with fresh theatrics. Giving the tabloids a bone to keep the rabble focused on trivialities.

    No. If journalists cannot be thrown from rooftops, they should at least be treated with the same level of respect as prostitutes.

    Sensibility is not always readily apparent. Particularly when one is not the target market.

    One of the many things we know about President Trump is that he tells the truth. The truth from his tweet is that these two people are secretly vulgar, shallow socialites. As far as I am concerned, he should hit them again, even harder, embarrass them by telling the world every fact he knows about them, and share every hidden vulgar action they have taken.

    Our President Donald John Trump is a most gracious, civilized man, and a role model for fathers everywhere. His children are honest fine people, not spoiled brats, because he never allowed them to get away with acting like the media, and he won’t allow the media to do it either. When OUR enemies learn some manners, then he will respond in kind.

    We are living in odd times. As a reaction to Obama, we have an odd president and an odd entertainment political media behaving oddly compared to their former selves. I agree with all above and Malcolm as well. Odd. These days not only am I ready for a clinched fist, I’m ready for a loaded fist.

    Robert,

    I agree with all above and Malcolm as well.

    I’m torn myself. The cataract of bile and venom the Left directs at anyone to the right of Che Guevara is despicable, and I have considerable sympathy with those who say they no longer deserve any pretense of civility, and that for us unilaterally to disarm in this culture war is folly. The targets of Mr. Trump’s latest effusion have themselves made no scruples about attacking the enemy in the harshest terms; for them to swoon and clutch their pearls over these tweets reminds me of this.

    But there is also in me an atavistic notion that the President of the United States ought to be, in some quaint and old-fashioned sense, an adult and a gentleman.
