Trump Unfit for Power - World Editorial


There is a big difference between being unfit to govern, and governing with policies we don't like.

Donald Trump is unfit to govern.  Hillary Clinton is fit to govern, even if we don't like how she's going to govern.  Meanwhile, Trump's persona, temperament, judiciousness, and willingness to respect other people are not suited to the presidency of the United States.

But don't take my word for it.  Here's a carefully-worded editorial from the evangelical World magazine, which is calling for Trump to withdraw from this year's presidential race.  An uncommon time calls for an uncommon - and probably unpopular - stance.

Unfit for Power - World Magazine Editorial

Update Monday, October 17, 2016


In light of the recent flurry of accusations against Donald Trump by women who say he assaulted them, consider this: 
It's obvious that all of the women currently claiming Trump sexually assaulted them is political theater. This demeans the legitimate crime of sexual assault and parodies assault victims as opportunists.

However, Trump's response has hardly been gallant, claiming himself to be a victim and mocking the physical appearance of at least one claimant, joking that she wasn't attractive enough for him to molest. Trump may not be able to control the political timing of these accusations, but he can control his response, and he's merely pouring fuel on the fire.

For the credibility of these women to be substantiated, they should have filed something with the police jurisdiction where the alleged offenses took place when they took place. Otherwise, anecdotal claims can be treated just that way.
