When did ‘arrogant blowhard’ become a presidential trait?

Recently a letter to the editor stated: “News flash: We voted for Trump in spite of his personality, not because of it. He’s an arrogant blowhard whose administration has made huge strides for conservatives.” Did I get that right?

This is confusing, as many others claim they voted for him because they like the way he speaks his mind. Respectfully, either way this begs the question; in spite of one’s integrity, what’s acceptable for political gain? A fair question, yes?

Biblically, or any other way you want to cut it, what comes out of man’s mouth is a reflection of his character is it not?
