How very true, Mr. Thomas, and how very consistent were the egregiously inappropriate remarks of the President on the occasion of an observance dedicated to reconciliation. But this is not the President's first rodeo of self-serving rancor. Already he has put his vicious, vindictive persona on display with his automatic denunciation of those who testified under oath and told the truth during the recent impeachment hearings in the House of Representatives.Consider also the removal of Lieutenant Vindman and his brother from their White House positions without notice and via security escort and the raw, intemperate castigation of Senators Mitt Romney, Doug Jones, and Joe Manchin, all of whom took pains to very carefully and conscientiously evaluate the relevant facts of the complex impeachment proceeding before casting votes that will likely undercut voter support in their conservative states. Their profiles in courage are the very opposite of the childish, vengeful behavior of the President. And this is no first time aberration of the President's attitude; It is standard operating procedure. But never mind; despite this and all the other hateful, un-Presidential and ungodly behavior characterizing this President, he will likely lose little, if any, support from the great majority of the evangelical community, that sector of the American electorate that was so insistent on the necessity of good character in a leader back during the impeachment hearing of former President Clinton.
