Police push back against Trump’s law-and-order speech
Is it just his manner of speaking – doesn’t he know that his overly zealous comments have put him chin high into hot water so many times – is he that foolish to not care about the backlash – is he that inarticulate that he can not come across the way he should??? There are an awful lot of IF’S when it comes to the manner in which PDT communicates publicly.
President Donald Trump’s statement encouraging police officers to be “rough” with people they arrest has drawn criticism in law enforcement circles for sending the wrong message at a time of heightened tensions with the public.
“As a department, we do not and will not tolerate ‘rough(ing)’ up prisoners,” the Suffolk County Police Department said in a statement.
During his brutal campaign and after he got elected, PDT employed a horrible habit of not thinking before he talked or just plain doesn’t care what he says. What you see it what you get. Not a good thing in his position. I have to say, his rhetoric has caused him more problems than every other on of his hang-ups combined.
Optimistically; but I doubt it, someday he will come to the realization that he has to chose his words better and put a filter on some of the things he says.
By observing PDT in action; I think he gets so caught up in his remarks and really wants to drive home the point intensely, he loses his sense of good judgement.
PDT must realize, he is now the most public figure in the world; and a politician even if he doesn’t want to admit it. The press picks up every-time he blinks his eye or wiggles his nose, just sitting there waiting for him to say or do something out of line so they can pounce on it.
As outrageous as it may sound; PDT may just be a poorly polished communicator.
Is there anyone close to him, a family member, friend, cabinet member that he will listen to on how to clean up his dialog? I don’t think so.
If there is anyone in the world that loves to SHOOT STRAIGHT FROM THE HIP AND TELL IT LIKE IT IS; it is the guy pounding these keys. BUT, always the BIG BUT; diplomacy and tact can go a long way when it comes to expressing ones self; especially in PDT position.
This man fires off at anyone and everyone, domestic or foreign he disagrees with or that has has a comment on what he does. He can be as critical as he wants; BUT instead of calling someone a son-of-bitch, he can call them a scoundrel. TACT!!
PDT is like the guy that is standing next to an area noted for having quick sand; sees the warning signs but because of his stubbornness he is going to try and cross it anyway. Some of the things he says and does just do not make sense.
When I see some of his shortcomings and deficits, I just think of how bad off the USA would be with BB in the Love Seat. Than I feel much better.
I really believe if the press and the other Boulder Rollers cut back on their blistering attacks on him even slightly, PDT would settle down. BUT, they never will, because they love to see him putting nails in his own coffin.
How about the North Korean situation?? Does sound good.
PDT is doing something he said he would never do; that is telegraphing his military moves and making his threats public.
This is the most tense a world wide catastrophic situation has been since WW II. If all parties concerned do not use good judgement, it could and will be a super catastrophe. Let us hope and pray, level heads prevail.
It will not be pretty.
