Judging from press reports, covered by print and audio media, President Trump has ventured into the scolding process.
Foremost of all, it was his appointee, Jeff Sessions, the attorney general who was his most talked-about subject. Likewise, the 45th president of the United States didn't stop at the now known extraordinary flogging made public.
Trump touched on the general notion of anticipated loyalty that he has underscored since he took over as chief resident of the White House.
Not every American agrees with Jeff Sessions on anything, this space's columnist has observed. It is remarkable that even the so-called conservative media have sided with the “beleaguered attorney general.”
What has been known are reports that the highest member of the Department of Justice, tried his level best to abide by what the top executive has expected of him. Yet, what did the former senator from Alabama see in return?
Trump subjected Sessions to a well-known process of elimination without letting him know. It was widely known that Sessions carried on with his duties.
Why didn't Trump quietly ask for a resignation from his appointee?
Instead, Trump attacked Sessions, his longtime supporter, identified as his staunchest ally.
Pro-Trump observers of the past 100 Days of the Trump presidency have been vocal in saying he is enjoying just a few detractors. Not so, as recent events have unfolded.
Returning to the loyalty issue: news reports have advanced how he immediately indicates an explosive style of government.
Are there concrete instances where he always returns that same loyalty?
Trump's particular derision of Sessions has stirred some Conservatives into the very response needed. The outcries from them have been one of saying how they will not stand up to a president who has shown his bold resistance to the Constitution; defies what has deemed logical; ignoring completely America's existence as a nation of laws.
The president is not a lawyer. Yet, he ought to know basic requirements in the course of casting aside under the rules demanded of all lawyers.
Therefore, it is easy to see how many members of the party Trump represents will continue to react and respond in the unprecedented hit on the attorney general by the very man who lauded him and became an active voice in the presidential campaign that ended in his successful quest of the presidency.
Fast forward to another member of the Republican party. Senator John McCain, a war hero, an American hero, went to Congress very recently despite his post-operative condition. The most-loved senator from Arizona delivered a veritably impressive address covering the proper manner of legislating.
He was out in the open; with dialogue; with discussions; with amendments.
Senator McCain rose as a truly highly-admired American hero, whom Trump identified as a “non-hero,” because “he was captured.”
He climaxed his presence by delivering a single contradictory vote on the Republican proposal to take away the Affordable Health Care Act otherwise known as Obamacare, all done in his opposition to those who would cast away affordable health care from tens of millions of Americans.
Senator McCain joined his colleagues, Senators Lisa Murkowski (from Alaska) and Susan Collins (representing Maine) who said no to those who would take away the aforesaid affordable health care, ostensibly announced as one to reduce the taxes of the tens of thousands of the wealthiest Americans.
It does not require anybody's guess that the foregoing would include the Trump family and others who have appeared to be opposed to the Obamacare act passed as law in Year 2010.
Owing to the action taken on the aforementioned health care act, it demonstrated the strength of America's bipartisan heritage.
