Playing Commander in Chief

I caught a few seconds of Trump standing behind a podium trying to look like a tough guy Commander in Chief. Honestly, he looked ridiculous. He’s never stood up for anything brave in his life, beginning back in the VietNam war years when he got a draft deferment for bone spurs. How does that translate into a credible Commander in Chief? Even George Bush, hilariously nicknamed “Shrub” by Texas columnist Molly Ivins, looked more convincing.

  1. We still have several Molly Ivins books around. Miss her – she’d be having a field day with Trump!

  2. for Phyllis: She and Ann Richards were the high water mark for powerful women in Texas. Where have today’s women gone? Few voices being raised.
