Presidential? Uh, not today

For the past year, I have asked for very little from President Trump.

I have not been disappointed.

I have repeatedly used this forum to plead with him to act presidential.

I guess this is not the morning to have that conversation again.

All night I kept waiting for a denial from the White House of the deplorable comments about Haiti, African nations and other developing areas.

Had the president been misquoted? Had his comments been taken out of context? No such explanation was forthcoming.

I won't repeat the comments here.

I think most people have heard them.

I don't get it.

The saddest part? I am sure that there are no shortage of people willing to embrace what the president said.

They are his "base."

Yep, that's the right word.
