Donald Trump is No Teddy Roosevelt

The comparison is absurd. Donald Trump will surely go down in history as America’s worst president, displacing Warren Harding and Millard Fillmore at the bottom of the rankings. Theodore Roosevelt is typically ranked among the five best presidents, one step below George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Both TR and DJT came from wealthy New York families, but Roosevelt devoted his life to public service, while Trump single-mindedly pursued getting richer. Roosevelt was the nation’s youngest president, while Trump is its oldest. While a strong proponent of what was considered “manliness” in his era, Roosevelt was a devoted family man. Trump is a twice-divorced, thrice-married serial sexual predator whose relationships to his children seems to be based on their ability to promote the family brand and wealth.

Taking office at a time of rising literacy and the spread of newspapers, Roosevelt may have been the first “celebrity” president, but unlike our current president, he was also a man of intellectual and wide-ranging interests. A prolific writer, he authored 18 books, including volumes on national parks, foreign policy, nature, wildlife, ranching, naval history, and the four volume The Winning of the West about the American frontier. Trump can hardly read, much less write. He has the vocabulary of a 5th grader.

Trump Called US Military Leaders 'Losers' While Calling ISIS 'Smart' and 'Tough'

Trump resents the military, and patriots in general, because he’s a draft dodger. And when he can’t compete with smart and superior intellects he calls them names. He admires dictators and thugs because that’s what he knows best. Donald is a wannabe Hitler, Stalin. But he’s too mentally challenged to get there:

Donald Trump has undergone several fascinating evolutions on the subject of terrorism and, in particular, ISIS. Immediately following the news of a terrorist explosion in London this week, Trump leapt to smear British law enforcement, earning him a swift rebuke from Prime Minister Theresa May.

Another evolution has been his decreasingly frequent use of the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism,” which his administration has officially rejected and which Trump himself has left out of important speeches. This is likely due to the influence of National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster, who agrees with Barack Obama that the phrase is “not helpful.”

Instead, starting with the Manchester terrorist attack in May, Trump declared that he “will call them, from now on, losers.”

True to his word, Trump used the stinging epithet following this week’s attack, which injured 22 people.
