Like most of the people in Dunwoody and Sandy Springs I did not support President-elect Trump during the primary races. When he won the nomination, I withheld my support hoping that his inflammatory rhetoric and tweeting would be brought under control and we would get clear picture of what his policies were going to be. That never quite happened. After the election I waited to see who how he would perform as the President Elect.
I am still waiting to be impressed.
This fact that he uses Twitter as the new way to communicate to his base is shaking up the political world and conventional media. However his continued attacks on US Intelligence Agencies, his obvious attempt to use Twitter to inflame and misdirect the public. His tweets that dismiss US Intelligence findings and takes the “word” of the Russians are embarrassing.
But the recent attack on Representative John Lewis, a true American Hero, in his latest round of tweets is disgraceful and sad. In Trumps usual style, he aggressively attacks the person and tries to humiliate and call in to question decades of Representative Lewis’s selfless service to this country.
He seems to forget that a Congressman can only do so much at the local level with local issues. But when you are ignorant of so many things like Mr. Trump, why let the details crowd out your message. After all you only get 140 Characters.
Shame is not a strong enough word. For my Republican brethren who continue to find no fault or express any concerns over Mr. Trump’s behavior, step back and look at what he is actually doing. If you are following blindly which a lot of you seem to be doing, shame on you
