Still Assholes

Nobody asked but …

Now the echo chamber resounds with the idea that no matter what he does, POTUS will still be called an asshole by the hardcore critics.  The buzz around the Puerto Rico rescue effort is an example.  But POTUS **is** an asshole. Just like LBJ and Nixon were assholes. It’s fundamental character we’re talking about, fundamental authoritarianism, fundamental egomaniacism. No matter how much good is being done, they are sure to introduce some assholery to the process.
