Trump’s character falls short

Another Christmas Eve has come and gone and the annual “It’s A Wonderful Life” movie with the message — it’s content of character, not money, that counts — has played. So what message did President Trump express? “Merry Christmas with your new tax cuts” and retweeting a meme of him with his foot propped up in a limo with a blood splat and CNN emblem on the bottom of his shoe.

This, a day after a round of golf in South Florida. His 83rd day at a golf club. In his campaign, President Trump harshly criticized Obama for his golf playing and being away from the White House during the holidays, depriving Secret Service agents from being near their families. He promised to stop that and it helped him win the election. He’s ignored those promises of conduct and many, many other conducts of action. What does that say of his content of character?
