It’s only wrong and repugnant because Trump said or did it.
Apparently Bernie Sanders said something similar a few years back.
I do not like the President. I find him repugnant. However, he could rescue a cat from a tree and would be accused of grabbing... uh, never mind.
I see three things about his tweets. First, many are vile comments which I can't get behind. Second, he uses them to get his message past the pundits and the press. Some of his tweets make good points. Of course, any good message he has is lost on the 47% who wants him impeached. Lastly, he is often just hitting back. There is a sense in which I can appreciate that. The left, including the majority of the media, hates all things conservative or traditional. It wouldn't matter which Republican held the office, the press would beat him up daily. See GW. Many Americans feel that they have been attacked relentlessly by these people and they see Trump as standing up for them. Who knows what will happen this cycle, but the more he is attacked, the more his base rally's to support him.
I don't think we will ever return to the days of sitting at the grown up table.
