Amazing editorial that you really must read. Most popular reader's comment: "“Now Trump’s own behavior is casting serious doubt on whether he’s qualified to be president.” Holy mackerel, does this have to be said? Of course he’s no more qualified to become president than a gerbil, and not a very bright one at that.
But Trump is not to blame. He entered the race as a lark, and he made it to the top only because he was the best looking horse in the glue factory. His stablemates were one-note wonders who thought that harping on the same, tired Republican agenda would propel them to victory. But they were stupendously unlikable people, as well as flawed, damaged and plastered all over in the thick treacle of religious sanctimony.
So the gerbil won. He’s not that bright, but that means he doesn’t get all tied up in shades of gray, which confuses the populace. He has (reportedly) lots of money, and lives like a king. He says the things that rich idiots say, which resonate with people who confuse wealth with smarts.
Besides, government isn’t working. Republicans saw to that, taking every opportunity to make it grind to a halt, and replacing sensible representatives with science deniers and conspiracy theorists. Gerbil Trump fits right in, and can fling nonsense with the best of them.
So no, Trump is not qualified to be the head of the most powerful nation on earth, nor is he qualified to have his short, stubby finger poised over the nuclear button. That may go without saying, but it still needs to be said.."
