Trump’s traits are actually Obama’s

In his Sunday column, “GOP is incapable of stopping Trump,” Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post states that the “great political parties do not nominate someone who glaringly lacks the knowledge and temperament to be the leader of the free world,” in reference the Republican party and Donald Trump. I would like to point out that his column indicates his complete inability to acknowledge the obvious. And that is that President Barack Obama fits that description to a “T” (as in Trump.)

We have a leader of the free world who cannot bring himself to identify a group who vows the destruction of the United Statesm and that is “Islamic terrorists.” Obama cannot use that expression for whatever reason. He also thinks that “global warming” is the greatest threat to humanity when North Korea is detonating nuclear bombs and launching missiles capable of delivering those devices to our allies in South Korea and Japan.

And he leads a party that passed the Affordable Care Act in which he had to lie to make it somewhat palatable to the American people while the senators who passed the act exempted themselves from its mandates.

Thus, I give you Barack Obama and the current Democrat party as a classic example of a how a “great”(?) political party can nominate a person who lacks the knowledge and temperament to be the leader of the free world.”

Also, Robinson should feel very grateful that he found a sucker corporation to pay him to write the columns he does. “Only in America.”
