Donald J. Trump sat down with Piers Morgan and made yet another astonishing exaggeration, which compels me to disabuse him of the idiocy he put out there.
Morgan asked the president if there is any doubt he will seek re-election in 2020. Trump said he’s all in for a re-election bid.
“Everybody wants me to run” for a second term, he said.
Huh? Wha … ? Eh? Everybody wants him to run?
Count me out, Mr. President. I am not a member of the Everybody Brigade he is citing.
Not only do I want him to walk away after his term, I want him booted out before the end of his term. Although I must concede that a President Mike Pence gives me pause as well, but for reasons that deal more with public policy than with general incompetence, ignorance, arrogance and rhetorical idiocy.
OK, I get that I’m likely nitpicking what Trump said about “everybody” wanting him to run again. However, if we’re being asked to take the president at his word, then I cannot remain silent when he blathers such absolute nonsense.
