As I have said in the past:
I’ve always wanted to start a new series called “Why do you have to be a dick about everything?” dedicated to the elected officials who just act like a bag of dicks.
My first was about Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert and today it is Donald Trump. For the Donald, it isn’t hard to be a dick. That is what he is. A dick. Maybe he shouldn’t be allowed to compete for this title since he is such a dick every moment of every day but today he gets a special mention.
Senator John McCain passed away from his battle with brain cancer. For anyone who has witnessed a loved one dying from cancer, it leaves a mark. I’ts a horrible disease and yet Trump found a way to make it worse. He refused to issue a statement on his passing. He refused to leave the flag at half staff only reversing his order after pressure from Veteran organizations. He refused to answer questions about John McCain’s passing or his legacy when directly asked during a press conference. Instead he sat with his arms crossed like a 32 year old coworker who’s idea at the team meeting was rejected due to lack of research. He pouted.
He finally released a statement from the White House that was tepid at best, late, and as sincere as an email from a coworker apologizing for his behavior at the last team meeting.
His actions just begs the question: Why do you have to be a dick about everything?
