Reagan’s daughter Patti Davis: 9-year-olds should be able to look up to Trump — not feel he’s one of them

On Monday, Patti Davis, the daughter of Nancy and Ronald Reagan compared President Donald Trump’s behavior to that of a child in an article for The Washington Post.

Davis pointed out the role of a parent and how they are tasked with making their children feel safe.

“They were the first adults we knew, and we relied on them to lead us into a big, unfamiliar world,” she wrote. “We only knew we were supposed to hold their hands and trust them to keep us from falling.”

She then explained that as the president of the United States, Trump has a parental-like role to fulfill for our country.

“There is an inherently parental role to being president of the United States. The person holding that office is supposed to know more than we do about the dangers facing the country and the world and is entrusted with making the appropriate decisions to keep us safe and secure,” Davis wrote.

This is not the first time Trump’s behavior has been compared to a child. Psychologists have said that it is actually insulting children –to be compared to the president.

“Donald Trump is a dangerous person, and he occupies a position of unparalleled power. That is the reality that faces the country and the world. Stop insulting children and adolescents by comparing him to them, and hold him accountable for his own offenses,” developmental psychologists Jeffrey Jensen Arnett and Lene Arnett Jensen wrote in a letter to The New York Times.

Davis went on to explain that children laugh when they see the president on TV namecalling and stirring up drama. She noted that Trump demeaned a woman’s looks by calling her “horse force,” and often dismiss reporters serious questions as “stupid.”

“Nine-year-olds should be able to look up to the president of the United States, not feel that the president is one of them,” she wrote. “What will happen if the country faces serious danger?”

Published

Alabama Republican Senate candidate John Merrill this week complained that he doesn't enjoy watching television anymore due to the excess amount of "homosexual activities" that appear on his screen.

In an interview with AL.com, Merrill said that the lack of positive moral content on television these days has led to a decline in the nation's morality.

"There’s no more TV shows like ‘Gunsmoke’ or ‘Bonanza’ or ‘The Virginian’ or ‘I Love Lucy’ or ‘Andy Griffith,'" he said "People are too interested in homosexual activities. They’re too interested in the wife-swap TV shows and the shows that are not morally uplifting. That’s the problem."

In a column for Bloomberg, a former senior aide to Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin said his country has no interest in being associated with Donald Trump's racist meltdown over four Democratic lawmakers and advised the president to leave them out it.

Responding to Trump's tweets that accused the four Democrats, all women of color, of not only hating America but also Israel, Zev Chafets -- who was the founding managing editor of the Jerusalem Report Magazine -- claimed Trump can rest at ease because they don't need his help.

Published

on

President Donald Trump lobbed racist abuse at four Democratic congresswomen over the weekend -- and his advisers say his addiction to Fox News is at least partially to blame.

The president's advisers have been trying to convince him that outrageous tweets and comments do way more harm than good -- his lowest poll numbers came after his remarks about Charlottesville and after slandering "sh*thole" countries -- but they said Trump has a skewed perception about his popularity with minority voters, reported Politico.
