Did you know . . .

that journalists--those purveyors of fake news--have made The Donald appear less civil than he really is? It must be true because DT said it and He is, by his own pronouncements and those from sycophants surrounding him (think Miss Sarah, Press Secretary Extraordinaire), the only source of what is real and true.

Strange that. Not that we would ever doubt the Trumpster's word but . . .

I find disrespecting a Gold Star widow uncivil.

I think calling football players kneeling in protest 'sons of a bitch' uncivil.

I find equating neo-nazis and white supremacists with the protestors in Charlottesville uncivil, particularly after a young woman died.

I find torpedo tweets against legislative colleagues, Left or Right, because of criticism be it mild or mighty, uncivil and frankly, unbecoming to the Office of the Presidency.

I find the suggestion of limiting what newspapers print--threatening to revoke licenses and/or changing libel laws--uncivil.

I find calling foreign leaders, even the ones we don't like, childish names (think Rocket Man), uncivil and once again unbecoming to the Office of the Presidency.

I find blaming 'your' Generals for the deaths in Niger and earlier losses in Yemen not only uncivil but the mark of true cowardice, a lack of character worthy only of a worm, a creature that wriggles when exposed to harsh sunlight.

There's more, of course. The list is long and tedious.

But the point is clear: journalists do not need to make Donald J. Trump appear less civil than he really is. Because Donald J. Trump does exactly that through his own words and crass behavior.

Someone needs to supply the Trumpster with a recorder so he can play back his own ridiculous statements. Then he can cry "Fake News" all he wants. And we can nod, a moment of universal agreement.

2. I agree, Malaise.

Just one more example out of hundreds and still counting. My husband says every time he sees that clip he thinks of Mussolini, the way Trump barrels through and then stiffens his neck, raises his chin. The Emperor has arrived!
