I did not vote for President Trump. However, I am still a patriotic American. And it should be disturbing to all Americans that we have become a nation that condones a daily assault on our president and executive branch of government.
It is so unbecoming of our nation that it embarrasses us before the entire world. To dissect every presidential or executive branch action with robust over-analysis and vehement opposition argument is not only unproductive but damaging to our country. Since we are politically split as a nation, there will always be fervent opposition to a sitting president.
We support our free press to monitor our leaders. Illegal activity is unforgivable and must be exposed when factually discovered. Innuendo, insinuation, and a tone of distrust cannot be accepted as newsworthy. There is nothing honorable about undermining the president of our United States. Just as in any workplace, if we don't let the president learn the ropes and lead, then we inhibit any progress the president can make.
President Trump's inexperience and cowboy approach to leadership, while fraught with controversy and mistakes, is radically different than his predecessors. His victory was based on the very premise that he would shake things up and do nearly everything differently than the way it used to be. If we can't give him a chance to succeed (or fail), then what does that say about the United States? That we are free election hypocrites?
What is truly frightening is the realization that a Hillary Clinton presidency would be not be any different. Her opposition would be just as rabid in trying to undermine and take down her presidency. In 2017, we are facing a cultural problem of micromanaging our elected leaders. And it must come to an end or our nation will be divided and conquered before our eyes.
