You get to see just about it all

In my lifetime I would never have guessed a sitting POTUS would call into a news show and rant like a lunatic for an hour

Oh well---wonder what's next??

I know this political theatre is not discussed here much anymore---I think maybe cuz whatever side of the aisle your on----a common acknowledgement is---It's plain nuts

    Also---I'm in the camp that throwing dirt towards Ukraine does aid Russia---and do not know why it's being allowed to happen??

    I think it's awesome. He is like none other and that's the awesomeness of it all.

    Well--admitted I'm a bit old school

    But I still believe elected office---or any position of authority really---should come with the impression if nothing else of Dignity

    Idi Amin...OK
    Pres of Philippines---well maybe?

    POTUS not so much

    Being like no other isn't necessarily a good thing. I didn't watch this rant, but I have seen enough of him to know he is a little boy doing a man's job. We need a president and other leaders who behave like adults. Doesn't matter what side of the isle you are on. Behave with the dignity your country deserves.

    Meh. Enjoy the show. The next president can be classy again.

    I'll trade crass and bad mannered to get honesty and effectiveness every day of the week.

    I can think of one other.

    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    What honesty? What effectiveness?
