Indecent is defined as “offending against generally accepted standards of propriety and good taste.” I cannot think of a person more suited to that description than our current president.
Before I make enemies of all of my friends who are supporters of our current president, let me make one thing clear. You might like his policies and results and support him for that reason. But I see no way that his words and actions can be endorsed. Plus I won’t accept the arguments that other people do similar things. Leaders are supposed to lead, not demean. Leaders are supposed to set a high standard, not drag us through the mud with their crude behavior. Citing the misbehavior of past presidents is not a relevant response to my argument here.
His lying, insulting, belittling, and defaming are just starters. He has endorsed violent actions. He has attacked American heroes and the families of American heroes. He shows no regard for those in need. Separating families in a power play to push an agenda is reprehensible and immoral.
He uses ugly language unbefitting the presidency. He continually threatens our democracy with his attacks on the press and the judiciary. He refuses to use science in this administration. His faith is fickle and manipulative. He sees diversity as a dirty word, instead of recognizing it as one of our strengths. Civility is neither in his vocabulary nor in his actions. In 649 days as of October 30, 2018, our president has made 6,420 false or misleading claims.
I could go on and on but I must admit that my blood pressure gets out of control. Suffice it to say, I am not a fan and hope that the GOP will come to its senses and put up another candidate in the 2020 election.
His manner is indecent and tearing at the fabric of our country.
