Political leaders have their heads in the dark

Print Article

Nixon “listened” in on the Democrat phone conversations and was headed for impeachment. Clinton got a “Knobby” job and if not for the tie vote in the Senate, would have been impeached. Neither threatened our national security.

Trump insults and belittles other nations leaders. Calls them names, and is accused — like Clinton­ ­­— of womanizing and forcing his advancements on them. He screams for “government” to get out of business, then turns around and tells business — NFL owners — what they should do. He lies —as his own party members have stated — and has turned more than one of his Republican party members against him.

His belittling of North Korea’s leader has brought us closer to a nuclear war. He criticizes Puerto Rico leaders and says the KKK has some good people. All this and yet Clinton getting a knobby job and Nixon listening in on Democrats’ phone lines is more worthy of impeachment. I’m think there are some leaders (?) in our system that have their heads in a dark place and it has a real foul odor.
