Nothing normal about Trump

| Friday, Nov. 17, 2017, 8:57 p.m.

What is next? Where is Congress to stop the insanity? Every day there are mixed messages from the White House. Not to mention most are just crazy.

How could folks vote for this? Any of the candidates on either side would have been better than this disgrace.

Just to reiterate, Trump has said the following: “I have the greatest temperament there is.” “If Ivanka weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her.” “I love the poorly educated.” “I have a very good brain.” “I comprehend, I think, better than almost anybody.” And he reportedly said, “Why can't we use nuclear weapons?”

I can't find the words to express how profoundly ignorant Trump is on every subject. With the verbal battle with North Korea and his ridiculous statements on recent tragedies like Puerto Rico and the Las Vegas gun massacre, it's clear that Trump doesn't have a compassionate bone in his body.

He continues to be a bully and is applauded for it. How disheartening to see that this is accepted by many. We hear about the heroics of others at these horrific events and Trump can't rise to the occasion and sincerely address these problems. He just comes up with a new noisemaker of the day to divert attention from his shortcomings. There is nothing good or normal about this person.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
