Day 2 Week 17 – How Low Can We Go?

7 mile easy pace, cool & 72 degree

“How low can we go?” was the question came to mind when I saw the headline on President Trump labeling Ms. Omarosa, his former White House Advisor, a dog.  Normally this question would be beneath the dignity for me to consider if Trump weren’t the President.

But he is the President of the United States.  And his job comes with many responsibilities like the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces,  the head of government, and the head of state, to the most powerful nation on earth.

That means Trump can get his military parade, or he can shut down the government if he chooses to. But, Trump is, I believe, failing miserably as the head of state. Being the head of state, there is a moral obligation for Trump to lead by example, to serve as the public persona for the entire nation.

Trump is unapologetic for what he stands which I admit is an appealing character trait.  But his behaviors and beliefs are not only in stark contrast with American values but invariably trickle down to policies that are tearing at fabricate of the American culture.

And with two more years of this administration remaining, I couldn’t help to ask, how low can we go?

Do you think President Trump is doing a good job?
