Veteran newsman Dan Rather has had enough of Trump, writing over and over again why people should vote for Hillary Clinton, and steer clear of Donald Trump. Watching Sunday night’s debate put him over the edge.
“As Donald Trump paced menacingly last night on stage, as he threatened Hillary Clinton with imprisonment even though her actions have already been subjected to the arm of justice, as he batted away concerns over the leaked audio of him boasting of sexual assault as mere “locker room talk”, the cumulative image for millions of votes, I suspect, is that this is a man who, at a fundamental level, does not understand what it means to be an American. And thus, by logical extension, he has no business being president.
Teddy Roosevelt famously stated: “No man is above the law and no man is below it, nor do we ask any man’s permission when we ask him to obey it.” That is our national creed. I can hear the Trump partisans howling that Clinton has subverted the law on multiple occasions. It is their right to do so, but it must be pointed out that she has never been found guilty of anything. You can then resort to conspiracy theories as to why that may be the case. But those too have never been proven by fact.“
