Carl Bernstein: "He has created the first grifter presidency in the history of the united states, in which his purpose in running for the presidency and exercising the powers of the presidency, the fundamental reason is to bail himself and his family out."
Former VP Joe Biden, accepting the Democratic nomination for the presidency in his third run for the office, emphasized compassion, unity and restoring the "promise of America to everyone." "The best way through pain, loss and grief is to find purpose," he said in his speech
"Trump’s purpose here is not to actually foment a shooting war, but to scare his critics into believing that he’s willing to sacrifice even the country to save his presidency." @GrahamDavidA on the president's new strategy:
President Bush was one of the kindest, elegant and unpretentious people I had ever met. What a life well lived. A life of honor, integrity and purpose in a time when there was deep respect for the presidency no matter where you stood on the issues. #RIP41
Yesterday Trump articulated the purpose of his presidency. He’s done it before, but many did not want to listen.
