Respectful of office, but not of Trump

During my 20-plus years in the military, I learned that you respected the uniform and the rank it carried even if you

didn’t respect the individual wearing the uniform.

That is the way I feel about the office of the President of the United States.

I respect the office of the president, but I will never respect the individual that assumed that office on Jan. 20, 2017.

As far as I am concerned, Donald Trump has neither the character, leadership, integrity or knowledge needed to guide this country, and he leads by bullying.

I believe that he is an incompetent narcissistic racist and a pathetic liar.

As an example: The three million “illegal” votes he didn’t receive, the thousands he saw cheering in New Jersey on Sept. 11, 2001, President Obama’s wire tapping, and the “birther claim” just to name a few.

Trump has criticized Republicans, Democrats, the Pope, many of our European allies, U.S. elections, the CIA, the FBI and NATO to name a few. But he has never criticized Vladimir Putin.

Trump says it’s ridiculous to think the Russians have a dossier on him.

Someone should inform him that the Russians have a dossier on every politician, especially him, because of his “Access Hollywood” bus conversation, the accusations by at least 12 women, his three marriages and previous marital infidelity, along with his shady business dealings, like Trump University, and his disreputable dealings with contractors.

Normally, we as a country welcome people in. But this is the first time in all my many years as an American that I have seen (thousands of) people leave this country, and smuggle themselves into Canada.

What has this country become?

For those of you that voted for Trump, do you really think he is running the White House?

And to those of you that

didn’t vote, don’t complain: You’ve gotten exactly what you deserve.

I believe the worst is yet to come.
