Former presidents Carter, Bush Sr., Clinton, Bush, Jr. and Obama

need to come out and rebuke Trump. A full on public rebuke at a presser featuring all five of them.

Enough of this "Former presidents shouldn't criticize sitting presidents" bullshit. This is not some minor policy difference - the sitting president just sided with a tyrant over his own government!

I beseech all living former presidents to speak out. For the sake of the fucking nation SAY SOMETHING, their wives have done so and now it's time to fulfill their pledge to defend the nation by using their combined bully pulpits to shut this monster down.

2. Yes, but it would mean a lot more if dump were forced to resign

I'm sick of empty platitudes & scolding at this point. I need action!

5. Company CEO's

should sign a joint statement and take out full page newspaper ads and air time condemning Trumpís treasonous behaviors.

State governors should do the same. Blame and shame should be poured on until this traitorous president and his enablers have no choice but to tail and run.

9. Totally agree but

they're probably afraid that he'll name them in a nasty tweet and his minions will swarm.

7. I beseech some dead ones, too!

How about Lincoln? Imagine the ass whooping he'd give Trump!! Or TR, who famously said:
"By God! McManus, I hear you are going to toss me in a blanket. By God! If you try anything like that, I'll kick you, I'll bite you, I'll kick you in the balls. I'll do anything to you -- you'd better leave me alone."


I hear Harry Truman was a scrapper too!

8. I'd like to believe that even Ronnie Raygun

would have spewed at this shameful spectacle but something tells me he'd be out there defending Trump.

10. I don't think so.

I was in the USSR shortly before Reagan was scheduled to meet with Gorbachev in Reykjavik. And people there were very anxious since Reagan had been so tough with Gorbachev that they were afraid that it would make life tougher for them. Gorbachev had instituted his glasnost ("openness" ) reform policies which were in danger from the hard liners who were afraid of Reagan. I'm not a fan of Reagan anymore than they were, I was part of a peace group (I went with my grandmother) and the people we spoke to were terrified of another war. I remember one older lady who had been a nurse during WWII saying - "please, when you go back, tell your president that we want peace."
