Trump, being PC and being Presidential…

Memories; from the first Republican Primary Debate:

When this happened, I told my wife that Trump answered very well, given his audience.

But now the audience is different.

And he wears a different hat.

Yes, I am not going to blow a gasket if citizen Donald Trump calls Rosie O’Donnell a “fat pig” or whatever he called her. But we have higher standards for Presidents.
Leading the country involves not issuing crude insults at citizens.

Remember the furor over then Senator Obama talking about some people clinging to “guns and religion” when times were tough? That wasn’t even in a campaign setting; that was meant to be a clinical observation.
Now the Republicans nominated someone who issues grotesque, schoolyard type insults. Again, that is fine for a citizen, but it is not presidential. It is not the kind of remark that any President in my lifetime would have deliberately made in public.
