It’s amazing how many times you can hear TV talking heads suggest “there's a circus going on!” in regards to our national politics.

          That’s as good way as any to describe our show with our President and his former FBI Director openly calling each other liars, slimeballs and other terms of endearment.

          It is a circus for certain.

          It was amusing recently to see Trump supporters defend their guy on FaceBook with: "We didn't hire Trump because we thought he had a squeaky clean past!"

          We hired Trump to sweep out the trash......."

          Okay, cool, supporters of our sitting president are willing to forgive his earlier transgressions; but what about his conduct since taking office?

          Would it be a stretch to think we might have expected President Trump to be truthful, lawful and a role model for morality?

How is he doing?

Truthful is not a term we see used to describe our new President. His exaggerations would be comical if they weren't so frequent and blatant. How on earth can anyone - especially someone with help available to research his claims before he makes them be so sloppy?

          Add to this his out and out lies and President Trump is beyond description in regards to the truth.

          Our American form of government has been successful in large part because it puts laws before men. President Trump and some of his appointees test this concept almost daily. If not checked our democracy could be in serious peril.

          America rightly expects our President to demonstrate moral leadership. A moral code that suggests "if I don't get caught it's okay" is dangerous and accurately describes how the Trump Administration seems to operate.

          So my thought or question today for you supporters of President Trump who can forgive his conduct prior to his election - i.e, "We didn't hire Trump because we thought he had a squeaky clean past!" - is how do you accept since his election his struggles with the truth; his willingness to put himself and his administration above the law and his failure to be the moral leader our country expects and demands?

          Yes, it's cute to say we knew he wasn't a choir boy, but leading our country is far different from leading a big - even if successful - business.

          All this has me really scared because it appears to me that President Trump has too much power and that he demonstrates daily that he lacks the respect needed to handle it. If Donald Trump does not change fast America is headed for a crisis of epic proportion.

          I’m Steve Sauder and “There’s something to think about!”
