    What might a rational citizen, such as yourself, conclude about his character and performance given the totality of the facts? You need not vote to have an opinion.

    ^^^^ I had to look it up - there appears to be an entire Wikipedia page on the term

    Trump derangement syndrome (TDS - perhaps this should be included in the defined forum acronyms) is a derogatory term for criticism of, or negative reactions to United States President Donald Trump that are alleged to be irrational and have little regard towards Trump's actual positions or actions taken. The term has been used by Trump supporters to discredit criticism of his actions, as a way of "reframing" the discussion by suggesting his opponents are incapable of accurately perceiving the world.

    I like the term - but only when if used by "Trump supporters" (are there any of these here? )

    I happen to believe that no matter who the President is & of any party. That at any point in time, the office is to be respected & given a shot to try too succeed.
    I did so for Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush Jr. or Obama....
    When obvious dumb stupid shit is said & no matter the political party, they should be prepared to be called out on their bullshit too!

    Like it or not he is the current President & I respect him even though I don't agree with all his policies.
    I certainly don't agree with the way EPA is being crippled but wasn't too happy when Obama administration ignored me when I said stuff only to be dismissed.

    I think it takes a significant amount of strength to endure the criticism & no matter who is in the office.

    ^^ Jack: I completely understand and I agree with the respect issue. But in applying your philosophy and again with the caveat that I'm a foreigner, there is a distinction to be made between to office of POTUS (which does deserve reverence and respect) and the individual that happens to be temporarily in the chair (by virtue of your constitution).

    It's perhaps the single defining feature of a healthy democracy that citizens can and do freely express their opinions about their county's leader. Not all so-called democracies allow such freedoms. I would be more concerned living in a country (be it Australia, or USA) where open critique didn't happen! I happen not to be a fan of the Donald- but by definition, democratic elections (conducted properly) NEVER elect the wrong person!

    So yes, Office of POTUS - respect. But for any person sitting in the chair, ALL his/her actions are fair game to scrutinize, criticize, denigrate, or to applaud!!
