Bullies are often thin-skinned, quick to overreact when challenged, and undone when people are no longer afraid to speak truth to their face. Great presidents are almost always the opposite in all those categories.

Reflecting on Donald Trump’s complete overreaction to a statement made at the end of a performance of Broadway’s Hamilton: An American Musical, I couldn’t help but think – doesn’t this man have more important things to worry about? Hasn’t the theater long been a stage for political art? And isn’t this a man who broke so many norms as a candidate, insulted so many people – individually and as groups – that he now has the nerve to demand an apology when he never gave one himself?

I know there are many who say that this incident shouldn’t be blown out of proportion. Yes, when compared to cabinet posts or paying out $25 million in a fraud case against “Trump University,” a Tweet maybe might not seem that important. But being president is to have every word you utter scrutinized. And these words are intimidating and unfitting of the office of the presidency. But more importantly, they show a real weakness of vanity and small-mindedness that our enemies abroad will likely look to exploit. I can also imagine that Trump’s political foes at home are noticing – once again – how easily he can be rattled.

I imagine this is not the last we will see of these kinds of incidents.

PREACH, DAN!

  1. Hey, we all reach certain pinnacles in our lives. Opinion-news man, meet the 45th President-Elect of the United States. Sit down.

  2. Dan Rather. There’s credibility. What a joke.

  3. Well said Tom.
    Dan might be the person overreacting. He lost his journalistic credibility when he fabricated stories to bolster his political beliefs.
    Actually, he may have been ahead of his time since that’s all that’s left of the news media.

  4. This coming from a liar and a shamed left-wing media hack. He was a Cronkite wannabe but he blew it. Go back into retirement Dan.
