His pathological vileness is deepening:
No president of the United States would issue such a hateful remark for public consumption. That's why I can tolerate this sinister clown only by seeing him as the president, not a president. That, I grant you, is a fine distinction, but for me, a bearable distinction nevertheless.
His tweets say even more about his base, however, and how they should be countenanced. Trump tweets such bughouse maliciousness only because he knows his base loves it — he knows that his core base is as mean-spirited as he is. Some in the opposition insist that these are voters whom Democrats should pursue — that Dems should cater to the hatefully malcontented who constitute Trump's base. To which I say, leave 'em alone, let 'em stew in their hate, just let 'em die off. Trump can have them, pretty much all of them. Democrats should concentrate instead on motivating fundamentally decent human beings.
p.s.: We should also note the vileness of Republican congressional leaders who regularly dance around the vileness of Trump and his base. To wit — Speaker Paul Ryan, at his morning press conference, just said of the above tweets: "I don't see that as an appropriate comment." And there you have it: the GOP's utterly vacant "moral leadership." Trump's two-part tweet wasn't "inappropriate." It was gapingly abominable.
At least Sen. Sasse tries — a bit, a little, somewhat.
To which a reader responded:
This is a common misconception. Such behavior is impeachable.
Impeachment is a political act, and within that framework the founders allowed that unfitness for office qualifies for removal. A crude, sleazy, ignorant lowlife of a scuzzbucket in the Oval Office may somehow avoid committing criminal acts, but that doesn't erase the constitution's permission for removing ignorant scuzzbucketry from office.
