Ugh. The president of the United States insinuated that a television host killed an intern. He tossed off a Native American slur at a ceremony honoring Native American heroes. He still refuses to release his tax returns, even as he pushed a tax plan that is expected to save himself and his kids billions of dollars. He still uses his immense platform to go after Muslims, black activists, Mexicans and Americans who don’t say Merry Christmas. This is still popular with most of his base and his fan club at Fox News, but privately, even Republicans in Washington admit this is not the kind of behavior we expect from our leaders.
Or anyone else, for that matter. Most of us try to teach our kids basic lessons in humanity: Be nice, be honest, be humble. Don’t lash out when things don’t go your way. Don’t call people names. Don’t watch too much TV. Do your homework. Think before you speak. It isn’t all about you. Do what you can to help the less fortunate. Treat everyone of all races and religions with respect. Otherwise, you might end up …................. in the White House?
