A reasonable definition of “Trumpism” would probably be believing or supporting anything that Donald J. Trump says or does as president. Unfortunately, Trumpworld is an ugly place where honestly, decency and integrity are brutal casualties of Trumpism in practice.
The most heartbreaking of these three casualties to the rest of us non-Trumpers is honesty. Any person who habitually lies cannot be trusted. And anybody who can’t be trusted can’t lead effectively or legitimately.
Trumpism notwithstanding, surely Americans should recognize that honesty, decency and integrity are still pillars of our culture and our national identity.
Come on, people. There is only one way to prevent Trumpism from eroding our true American greatness any further, and that is by voting Trumpism and all it represents to the sidelines once and for all, beginning Nov. 6.
