Because I want my president to have respect for the decorum and institution of the presidency and the peaceful transition of power in the United States.
Trump’s refusal to accept the election process in the United States, something that has served us well for 240 years, is abominable – or maybe deplorable.
We as a nation keep harping on patriotism. We are upset when a football player does not stand for the national anthem, because he does not respect the moment and the institution of the national anthem and what it represents.
But we allow this dick to laugh off all our traditions, as well as the decorum of the presidency, and it does not seem to faze us?
If there are Trump followers that are not turned off by this, they must stop complaining about the patriotism of anyone else, including Kaepernick. Because it shows disregard for all that patriotism means in our country.
I want my president to have respect for the institution of the office and all it represents, and Trump proves every day over again that he does not. All he has respect for is his own outsized ego.
