The president’s propensity to trash talk has been known since he first took office. But it was taken to a whole new level last night with the rainbow lighting of the White House. He is supposed to be leading a nation that is clearly divided on the issue, but he has chosen to lead only part of it and tell the rest of us “tough darts.” The office of POTUS grows smaller by the hour with this man in it.
Yesterday, in the eulogy he delivered for Rev. Pinckney he praised Pickney by saying he “embodied a politics that was neither mean nor small.” And then he pulls a stunt like this. In that same eulogy Obama evoked the Bible.
OK – Ephesians 4:29 – “Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.” We should endeavor to do that even if he clearly does not.
