Absolute power... (Spokane)

Perhaps you've heard the saying before:

Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

Case in point. Speaker Mike Johnson

In 2015 before the moral corrosion set in, Mike Johnson had this to say:

>>> House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) said in 2015 that Donald Trump is too “dangerous” and “lacks the character” to serve as president, according to The New York Times.

“The thing about Donald Trump is that he lacks the character and the moral center we desperately need again in the White House,” Johnson, then a state legislator, wrote in an Aug. 7, 2015, Facebook post, the newspaper reported Monday.

The Louisiana Republican, who has since deleted his post, reportedly said his fear with Trump is that “he would break more things than he fixes. He is a hot head by nature, and that is a dangerous trait to have in a Commander in Chief.”

What if Trump, as president, decided to bomb another head of state entirely because he felt disrespected by that head of state, Johnson wondered aloud.

“I am only halfway kidding about this,” he continued. “I just don’t think he has the demeanor to be President.” <<< *
