Trump disappoints me…

This does not mean I’m in the movement to impeach.

Or that the long list of good things I’ve written about his presidency are not still true.

It’s just important to write about the things I do not approve of that he does as well — and this week is one of those.

I watched the video of him talking about the way Al-Baghdadi died, and I was troubled.

Any man we send our military halfway across the world to kill, and hunt for years, has the right to be treated as a battlefield combatant — which means his or her death — should be treated with dignity.

This is law, this is an important principle, this is ethical behavior, and just as I found President Obama’s reaction when he announced the killing of Osama Bin laden — likewise unseemly — and I also wrote about it — I find Trump’s description uncivil.

The president can be candid, like Trump, and still be civil, which is presidential. But to not be civil, about a man you just ordered killed, is not civil and/or presidential.

    Of all the disappointments you write about, it’s this? AB was a butcher. There was nothing admirable about him or reason to be civil. Point of fact, OBL strongly disapproved of ISIS means and methods. If Trump only lied the there was no crying and whimpering, it was a fine moment for the President and Richard Foley.

    as for most else that is Trump, you can fill a book about disappointment. His language regarding this butcher is the exception.

    Sorry, James not Richard Foley
