We Need a President Who...

What attributes do we expect in our President?

Not Fake News member Deb Winkler, who like many Americans is frustrated and disgusted with the Trump presidency, sent us a list of attributes she believes should be inherent in every President of the United States.

I took the liberty of posting that list on a local Democratic organization's Facebook page and asked readers to add to it if they wished. Here's Deb's list, first, and then some of the comments submitted via Facebook.

We need a president who:

  • Is refined and sophisticated enough to use proper language.

  • Will not mock a disabled reporter and then make derogatory comments about an entertainer beloved by many for calling him on it.

  • Has respect for women.

  • Shows respect for people even when their opinions differ from his.

  • Congratulates a nobel prize winner and Time's Person of the Year and be proud and happy for them instead of being bitter because he thinks he is deserving of those titles.

  • Takes the opinions and research of well known scholars regarding climate change and environmental issues.

  • Puts the interests of our country ahead of his personal interests.

  • Doesn't call people inappropriate names.

Is that too much to ask?

No, Deb, it's not.

And now the additional comments from Facebook:

  • Is not the laughing stock of the world.

  • Doesn't lie thousands of times to the American people.

  • Doesn't limit our daily flushing.

  • Tells the truth about things large and small.

  • Acts like the president we had.

  • Is a fighter for the working class.

  • Is honored and humbled to be in the Oval Office, and understands his/her Constitutional duty to serve in the executive branch in a manner that is honorable and lawful.

And then, there was this comment:

"No, it’s not too much to ask. We took these things for granted in the past. Now we realize we can’t assume anything. Trump certainly proves that."
