Conservative columnist George Will (even before the Comey firing). From the Washington Post:
It is urgent for Americans to think and speak clearly about President Trump’s inability to do either. This seems to be not a mere disinclination but a disability. It is not merely the result of intellectual sloth but of an untrained mind bereft of information and married to stratospheric self-confidence. . . .
Americans have placed vast military power at the discretion of this mind, a presidential discretion that is largely immune to restraint by the Madisonian system of institutional checks and balances. So, it is up to the public to quarantine this presidency by insistently communicating to its elected representatives a steady, rational fear of this man whose combination of impulsivity and credulity render him uniquely unfit to take the nation into a military conflict.
Read the whole thing? (“Gusts of factoids that cling like lint to a disordered mind.”)
And speaking of bullies (do you have kids? grandkids?), here are six minutes from California Congressman John Garamendi: “the children are listening” . . . along with the great Peter Yarrow singing the song it inspired (click the arrow just above the speech).
Don’t we ever miss these guys:
