A Guide to Presidential Behavior


Yes, Snopes says this is Fake News. Consider it humorous possible bar-talk!

❝ It wasn’t so long ago that Republicans in Congress cared about how a president comported himself in office. They cared a lot! The president is, after all, commander in chief of the armed forces, steward of the most powerful nation on earth, role model for America’s children — and he should act at all times with the dignity his station demands…

❝ Now seems like a good moment to update the standards. What do Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and other Republican leaders think a president may say or do and still deserve their enthusiastic support? We offer this handy reference list in hopes of protecting them from charges of hypocrisy in the future…

If you are the president, you may freely:

❝ • attack private citizens on Twitter…

• refuse to take responsibility for military actions gone awry

• fire the F.B.I. chief in the middle of his expanding investigation into your campaign and your associates

• accuse a former president, without evidence, of an impeachable offense

• employ top aides with financial and other connections to a hostile foreign power…

• call the media “the enemy of the American people”…

• claim, without evidence, that millions of people voted illegally…

• promote family businesses on federal government websites

And on and on and on and on…RTFA for the complete list.

The authors are always looking for more suggestions BTW. 🙂

    Apparently this list could include revealing highly classified information to the Russians, as per today’s news that “Trump revealed highly classified information to Russian foreign minister and ambassador.” https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/trump-revealed-highly-classified-information-to-russian-foreign-minister-and-ambassador/2017/05/15/530c172a-3960-11e7-9e48-c4f199710b69_story.html ““This is code-word information,” said a U.S. official familiar with the matter, using terminology that refers to one of the highest classification levels used by American spy agencies. Trump “revealed more information to the Russian ambassador than we have shared with our own allies.”
    “I get great intel. I have people brief me on great intel every day,” the president was quoted as saying, before elaborating with highly classified details. Following the meeting, the White House contacted the CIA and National Security Agency to contain the damage, according to the Washington Post. Two U.S. officials confirmed the surprise disclosure to BuzzFeed News, which said the Senate Intelligence Committee was briefed following Trump’s discussion with the Russians. “It’s far worse than what has already been reported,” one source told BuzzFeed. https://www.buzzfeed.com/jimdalrympleii/trump-highly-classified-information-russians?utm_term=.igGx3V7xK#.srOl3ENlW
