Palm slap here, too! I am having a really difficult time wrapping my head around the idea that the President of the U.S. can get away with this. Part of me just wants to slap his head and say “Language!” and part of me is so mortified, I want to move to Australia where my sister has lived for 30 years until such time as I can be proud of my country’s leader, again. I’m equally appalled that there hasn’t been more of a congressional outcry about this. I feel as if everybody is just biding their time waiting for somebody else to take on the task of formally revolting against this revolting individual. But I’ve yet to see any strong leadership in terms of mounting an official effort to rid ourselves of this vulgar, immoral, ignorant, offensive individual. I know he has said he will participate in the annual physical but refuses to be psychiatrically evaluated. Is there any way that members of Congress can require this of him? I’ve called my state reps until I’m blue in the face. I end up talking to voice mail and get canned emails in return. I don’t believe they are paying attention for a moment. In fact, I can watch them flip flop daily. As a parent, I’ve promoted the democratic system to my kids for years, holding up the President as the ideal. Now one adult child refuses to discuss politics because it’s such a polarizing topic and she is moved to tears by all of the conflicting discussion among people she loves. The other takes great delight in watching the real-life soap opera but isn’t prepared to become active. I would do something but I’m the type who prefer more organized protests and that just isn’t happening where I live. Is there an underground movement that perhaps I haven’t heard about? (Sorry - can’t help but wonder about conspiracy theories). Meanwhile, my 90 year old Dad has decided he no longer wants to watch the news because he’s become a prude in his late age and can’t handle anybody swearing on TV. I often wonder how dull life may be once he’s out of office. But I’ll certainly have more time to pursue personal interests because I won’t be glued to the news 24/7 waiting to hear what else he has done. I know I’m in the majority but I often feel very isolated from others who agree with me. And I wonder how healthy it would be to spend day after day venting about this. But this comment really pushed my buttons. Sorry about the long post but I just have to get this out before I end up with an ulcer stressing out about this.
