I Stand With Roy Exum On Trump - And Response (3)

Friday, July 5, 2019

Trump is a good President. When the disciples picked grain on the Sabbath to feed themselves, the pharisees found fault. The pharisees of our day are hard at it also.

Who among us could have had our lives so scrutinized as Donald Trump in the Mueller and daily media investigation and not be found wanting? And we all know that no stone was left unturned. Whether his actions had anything to do with Russia or not was immaterial. No person in public office has been so maligned. The lies, the twisted reporting, the attributing of evil motives to his actions all defy the true man that he is. 

His presidency has produced good fruit. He is against the murder of children made in the image of God. And he is hated for it. He is defunding Planned Parenthood which is the largest abortion operation in the world. He is talking to North Korea and there has been a calming, and he is doing it without bribing them. He has begun to make our trade deals with other nations equable. He kept a national promise of more than five decades to move this country's embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. He's a good man.

And then there’s the economy. "It's the economy, stupid!" wasn't that the cry of the Clinton campaign in 1992? Donald Trump created a miraculous makeover our economy in his first year.

Both his Supreme Court appointments have been good men. 

He is making America great again. He is keeping his word: he is fulfilling his campaign promises. That's a godly pursuit.

Mr. Wysong, we will excuse your lack of understanding regarding Trump’s grandiose sense of self-importance, accompanied by the abiding exploitation of others, devoid of guilt or shame.   

 

One needs only to do a minuscule amount of research whilst applying a healthy dose of universal logic to realize that our current president exhibits troublesome traits of an individual fraught with narcissistic personality disorder. It is most regrettable that some choose closing their eyes to Trumps 10,000 plus lies along with his demeaning, intimidating and belittling of others.

 

Furthermore, school yard name calling is beneath the dignity of the office of President. Regrettably, during the 2016 election the safety net of our democracy buckled. Our country yearns for new admired and valued leadership.

Mr. Jones, I don’t know you, and I doubt you know either me or Charles Wysong. You should be very wary of patronizing Charlie or accusing him of misunderstanding anything, political or otherwise, because you’re dealing there with a serious intellect from a whole family of serious intellects. I don’t know who you are, Johnny Jones, how old you are, or what you have accomplished with your life, but Charles Wysong’s long life and far-reaching accomplishments speak for themselves. He has few equals, let alone superiors.

I’m continually amazed by the endless and mindless complaints and criticisms of Donald Trump, all of which seem to come from the simple folks who accepted the previous President’s claims, words, and deeds hook, line, and sinker. It’s as if nothing Mr. Trump has ever done or could possibly ever do will meet with your approval, whereas Mr. Obama could do no wrong in your sight.

As to name calling, school yard or otherwise, perhaps what really troubles you is that Mr. Trump tends to call things as they are, rather than using the politically correct euphemisms that your crowd prefers. Wasn’t it a similar kind of plain speaking by Mr. Reagan that helped to bring down the Soviets? Abraham Lincoln supposedly asked more than 150 years ago, If you call a dog’s tail a leg, how many legs does the dog have? Just four, he said, because calling a dog’s tail a leg doesn’t make it one. But even Honest Abe wouldn’t stand a chance nowadays, not with some folks, anyway.

Mr. Wysong,

I believe "godly pursuit" and Donald Trump in the same letter to the editor is an oxymoron.  There is nothing "godly" or Christian about Donald Trump.
