The best leader is a humble listener and willing to be a student. How can a person provide leadership if he/she doesn’t really understand the issues?
We didn’t understand how supporting slavery would create chaos and hate over 200 years after it was abolished.
We didn’t understand the issues in Vietnam and thousands of young men and women were killed and damaged.
We didn’t understand the issues in Iraq and thousands of young men and women were killed and damaged..
So here we are with a president who won’t read or listen and only wants the world to know what a wonderful man he is — how smart, how rich, how powerful, blah blah blah.
He says whatever he wants without working out a strategy with his team (except for the manipulators and cowards who spend their lives sucking up to him). Because actually his team is our country. This narcissist who feels he has the right to blab whatever comes into his head doesn’t understand that he doesn’t just speak for himself, but he represents all of us!
When will someone in congress or the military or the justice system do the right thing and using rules of law, protect all of us from this immature narcissist?
