This Nonsense Has Got to Stop

A little over nine years ago, Barak Obama was elected President of the United States. Throughout his presidency, he was attacked, insulted and ridiculed by many in this country, especially those from the opposing party.

It was an embarrassing and shameful time for our country to show such treatment to a sitting President. Even the international community was amazed at the contempt and hatred focused not only against the President but his wife and daughters as well.

The President’s party, his supporters and a large part of the population demanded, rightly so, that respect be shown to our commander in chief.

Today, the same unfortunate situation is occurring – this time from the opposite direction. Since Donald Trump was elected President of the United States in November 2016, he has been criticized, attacked, and insulted by many in this country, especially those from the opposing party.

Once again, this is an embarrassing and shameful time for our country to show such treatment to a sitting President. Even the international community is amazed at the contempt and hatred focused not only against the President, but his wife and children as well.

The President’s party, his supporters and a large part of the population are demanding, rightly so, that respect be shown to our commander in chief.

I sincerely hope that these same words will not have to be repeated again in three or seven years, whenever we have a new President of the United States.

But for that to happen, both sides need to say, “Enough is enough.” It is time to end these partisan attacks that drive people apart. Instead, we need to start living up to the opening words in our Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union...”

We must elect candidates who put our nation first and their party second, rather than the other way around. Let that thought guide our thinking and our actions in the midyear elections this fall.

P.D. I do not have a Twitter account, but if I did:

@DonaldTrump. Please remember that you are the world’s most prominent leader. Be an example. Stop the crude insults. Even if they achieve your intended results, they come at a great cost to civility, decorum and unity.

@HillaryClinton. You lost, be humble about it. Don’t be a sore loser.

@RobertMuller. This looks like a hung jury. Guilty or innocent, give us something.

@MichelleWolf. Had never heard of you but you are a very despicable, rude and immature person.

@SarahSanders. You shrugged it off. Kudos to you.
