This country desperately needs a leader who knows the difference between tough and strong

What the country desperately needs right now is a president who knows the difference between acting tough and being strong.

Instead, we have Donald Trump, who revealed something fundamental about himself on Monday night when he staged the most shameful photo op in memory.

After police ambushed hundreds of peaceful protesters in Lafayette Square with tear gas and rubber bullets, the way was cleared for Trump to emerge from the White House, stroll across the park to historic St. John’s Episcopal Church and hold up a Bible.

Clergy called out the stunt for what it was: a desecration. “We hold the teachings of our sacred texts to be so, so grounding to our lives and everything we do,” said the Right Rev. Mariann Budde, the Episcopal bishop of Washington. “It is about love of neighbor and sacrificial love and justice.”
