During her CNN interview with Jake Tapper on Tuesday, Trump’s senior advisor Kellyanne Conway argued that much of the critical coverage of her boss showed a lack of “respect for and recognition of the dignity [of] the office of President.”

Sorry Kellyanne but it cuts both ways.

How does Donald Trump show respect for the presidency by undermining faith in our basic democratic institutions through constant lying? Or by attacking judges doing their constitutionally mandated job?

How does he honor his responsibility to the country by nominating manifestly unqualified, ethically challenged, ideologues to head government agencies? Or by not reaching out to the majority of citizens who voted for his opponent?

Why does he deserve to be called “Mr. President” when he refuses to divest himself of an ownership stake in his business empire?

And what kind of dignity does this Narcissist-in-Chief demonstrate by tweeting about tv shows, the size of his inauguration crowds, and his adult daughter’s business affairs?

It’s a wonder to me how journalists like Tapper manage to interview Trump’s apologists — Conway, Vice-president Pence, chief-of-staff Reince Priebus, White House press secretary Sean Spicer, Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell, and House Speaker Paul Ryan — without having their heads explode. For that kind of professionalism, they have my greatest respect. Me? I’d be tearing my hair out, burying my head in my hands, or sputtering incoherently at the shameless cravenness, evasiveness, dishonesty, and hypocrisy of people who, not being Trump, ought to know better.

I can only hope that a day will come when tv or radio broadcasts will provide a laugh track to accompany interviews with the Oval Office Kool-Aid drinkers. Because that is what they truly deserve — the only appropriate response of an enlightened and empowered citizenry that won’t accept crap as answer.
