Declining Level of "Presidential"

Tweeting is a very poor way to communicate with the nation. It becomes even less so when it is mainly used as a way of being mean, nasty, and generally way of attacking your opponents in ways that resemble bullying.

After a recent mean and extremely nasty tweet the responses from many were notable at attempts at being some level of nice. "That tweet was below presidential level," is a pleasant way of saying that was not what we expect our president to do.

My impression is that the level of "presidential" in the current White House started low and has only continued to go downhill. I wonder if it has as much to do with his personal attitude that if you disagree with him you are not worth considering? As things have continued to build against him and things don't fall into place as he would like, he escalates.

It does not appear that things will change.

I am deeply saddened.
