Writing in the National Review, Myra Adams states she’s finding it ever more difficult to support the President of the United States.

The larger question concerns whether President Trump is ever going to learn that as president of the United States he must never engage in petty public personal attacks against anyone. …

In my good conscience, I can’t defend a president who does not understand the power of his office. I want President Trump to be successful and to make “America great again.” I am his “base.” But if Trump thinks childish actions are pleasing to all of his base, he is sadly mistaken.

President Trump is an impulsive entertainer, and his going off teleprompter can have dangerous consequences. He has yet to learn that as president, he speaks and writes words that can turn into weapons, and weapons start wars, foreign as well as domestic.

I’m not part of his base, and I don’t think that America needs to be made great again. But I agree that Trump needs to demonstrate a stature that he has failed to show from the moment he declared himself a presidential candidate.

I’m not holding my breath. Nor should you.
