Message to Trump: This is why you lost the election

A number of Republicans with whom I’ve spoken believe that Trump’s bombastic, bullying, unpresidential antics probably cost him as much as 10 percent of the vote. Let’s give Trump the benefit of the doubt and say it was only 1 percent. That still equals about 1.5 million votes. And, again, he lost Georgia, Wisconsin and Arizona by a total of just more than 42,000 votes.

Nobody likes a bully, and few people like an insult comic as a president. It’s quite logical to imagine that Trump’s churlish, unpresidential demeanor caused at least 1 percent of the electorate to flip its votes. 


  1. "Bombastic"





    We decide how a President must speak and behave!!!

  2. “Joseph Orlow "Bombastic" "Bullying" "Unpresidential" "Antics" "Churlish" We decide how a.” Bravo Joe Orlow.
    No one is above the law. The USA has a Constitution and so do each state. Voters decide who will be the leaders. Courts of law decide if anyone committed a crime. Allow me Torah thought this week’s parsha משפטים
    Hertz Chumash p. 823: 12And the man that doeth presumptuously, The decisions of this Court must be strictly obeyed. Refusal to do so would, in a theocracy, be tantamount to revolt against the Constitution, and involve capital punishment for the offender. Tradition explains this v. to refer to a judge (זקן ממרה) who defies the ruling of the Supreme Court. the priest , The ecclesiastical president of the tribunal.
    May I talk about judge (זקן ממרה)? “11According to the law which they shall teach thee, and according to the judgment which they shall tell thee, thou shalt do; thou shalt not turn aside from the sentence which they shall declare unto thee, to the right hand, nor to the left. 12And the man that doeth presumptuously, in not hearkening unto the priest that standeth to minister there before the LORD thy God, or unto the judge, even that man shall die; and thou shalt exterminate the evil from Israel. 13And all the people shall hear, and fear, and do no more presumptuously.” (Deuteronomy 17:11-13).

    I like the word presumptuously
    דברים פרשת שופטים פרק יז פסוק יב - יג
    (יב) וְהָאִישׁ אֲשֶׁר יַעֲשֶׂה בְזָדוֹן לְבִלְתִּי שְׁמֹעַ אֶל הַכֹּהֵן הָעֹמֵד לְשָׁרֶת שָׁם אֶת יְקֹוָק אֱלֹקֶיךָ אוֹ אֶל הַשֹּׁפֵט וּמֵת הָאִישׁ הַהוּא וּבִעַרְתָּ הָרָע מִיִּשְׂרָאֵל:
    (יג) וְכָל הָעָם יִשְׁמְעוּ וְיִרָאוּ וְלֹא יְזִידוּן עוֹד:
    Sanhedrin 86b
    “If he returned to his town and taught again as heretofore, he is not liable. but if he gave a practical decision, he is guilty, for it is written, and the man that will do presumptuously, [shewing] that he is liable only for a practical ruling.”
