For the benefit of the country, Trump must go

LP note: This subject came up in a discussion I had with a millennial today. He noted, "If a CEO had sent such a tweet," referring to Trump's tweet about Mika Brzezinski's so-called facelift, "he would be gone in a minute. But I guess," he added, "the president isn't held to the same standard." 

Unbelievable that the president of the United States should be held at a lower standard than the CEO of a corporation. What has become of this country that we should accept such behavior? Imagine if President Obama had tweeted such a comment.

It is time for Mr. Trump to be removed from office. He is an embarrassment to the nation. The fact that the Republicans continue to allow him to hold the presidency only weakens our country. Whether they choose impeachment, or if the 25th Amendment is invoked, for the well-being of our nation and the integrity of the Constitution, action needs to be taken.

Donald Trump is not well

By Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough

President Trump launched personal attacks against us Thursday, but our concerns about his unmoored behavior go far beyond the personal. America’s leaders and allies are asking themselves yet again whether this man is fit to be president. We have our doubts, but we are both certain that the man is not mentally equipped to continue watching our show, “Morning Joe.”

The president’s unhealthy obsession with our show has been in the public record for months, and we are seldom surprised by his posting nasty tweets about us. During the campaign, the Republican nominee called Mika “neurotic” and promised to attack us personally after the campaign ended. This year, top White House staff members warned that the National Enquirer was planning to publish a negative article about us unless we begged the president to have the story spiked. We ignored their desperate pleas.

The president’s unhealthy obsession with “Morning Joe” does not serve the best interests of either his mental state or the country he runs. Despite his constant claims that he no longer watches the show, the president’s closest advisers tell us otherwise. That is unfortunate. We believe it would be better for America and the rest of the world if he would keep his 60-inch-plus flat-screen TV tuned to “Fox & Friends.”

I suspect that LP and the millennial are correct and our situation is sad. At the same time, I have to respectfully ask - has it ever occurred to LP and possibly the millennial that their credibility might be improved if they had stated the same about slick willy? I’m not excusing either, just pointing out that a double standard diminishes one’s credibility. We need to stop falling for the suckers choice and in the mold of George Washington, elect people of sound character and virtue. Settling for anything less will be our downfall.
