The Man on Top Must Take Responsibility When Things Go Wrong
I don't know that exact wording but Richard Nixon said that as chief executive (the man on top) he had to take responsibility when his subordinates did things wrong. This was said as the Watergate scandal exploded in 1974. He had to pay the ultimate price by resigning the presidency since it was obvious that he obstructed justice.
A few days ago Sean Spicer, President Trump's press secretary asserted that Adolph Hitler had not used chemical weapons. Hey, give that man a history book. To say the least this was an insult to all Jews. Since Spicer was appointed by Donald Trump, the President must take responsibility for what he said. Spicer should be fired or forced to resign. What does Jared Kushner have to say about this?
It is my sincere hope that a "Trumpgate" will develop and the 45th president will be impeached or be forced to resign. We can only impeach a president if he commits a crime and is found guilty by a 2/3 vote in the Senate. I almost cry when I read what he is trying to do as Chief Executive. I think that historians will determine that he is the worst president in history.
