I listen sometimes to respected political commentators discussing the president-elect...what he does, what he tweets, who he selects for his cabinet and the White house. What strikes me is they talk about all this as if there is a serious person, a Leader who has been elected to be a leader of the Free World.
Qualities of a good leader: honesty, compassion, integrity, confidence, knowledge, curiosity.
Why Trump cannot be a leader.
Compassion is the response to the suffering of others that motivates a desire to help. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compassion
The so-called intellectuals have conveniently forgotten the election campaign and all the outrageous things that Trump said during the campaign. Charlie Rose said this about Trump, the President-elect, that is fascinating - Trump sometimes behaves like a normal person. Not a word about Trump's qualifications and his character.
It is abundantly clear to any intelligent person that this man is a pathological liar, a con man, a psychopath - thin-skinned and vindictive. He has managed to insult almost every group in our country and abroad.
