How does one respond to a tasteless bully? Maybe this is enough. I've written here recently that President Trump ought to be barred from using Twitter, and his most recent tweets prove the case. He has divided his own party with his motormouth and his stooping to the lowest of insults. It doesn't pay to get into a shouting contest with him. He is the President after all and he has a large pulpit from which to speak. On the other hand, silence might mean acquiescence. Perhaps the best response might be an expression of sorrow about his behavior and for the country. Here is the hope that after four years of his tart tongue we get a President who is civil in tone. We need it.
