The office of President of the United States is the most heavily criticized job in the country since I’ve been alive. Doesn’t matter if the name is Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton or Obama. Some groups are going to be against you and your policies, and as president, you’re going to be under constant criticism.
I’ve never heard a presidential candidate lash out at his detractors with insults and disrespect worthy of a teenager in a schoolyard taunting session like Trump. Trump has gotten away with this for decades because he’s rich and powerful, and he’ll crush you if you go against him.
Watch ESPN’s “30 for 30” documentary, produced in 2009, on the defunct U.S Football League and how Trump handled Charlie Steiner’s critical comments. How can you be president if you’re incapable of being criticized?
