In case you missed this, President Donald Trump has declared October 15 – 21 National Character Counts Week. In all fairness, the White House has observed this week of educational events for 24 years. Which must have presented a dilemma.
The White House had two choices: Quietly abandon the aspirations of Character Counts and drop the event, or pretend there is no obvious role conflict here and press on.
Keeping with the spirit of the times, White House staff chose denial. No problem here. The Narcissist-in-Chief is our role model. Let’s all pretend that’s normal.
