Yes, Words Matter!
What Morrison said is indeed applicable to Donald Trump and she later went on to say so in no uncertain terms. In that vein, here are two columns about the President which are important.

|Al Pacino as Michael Corleone|
Some advice, albeit fictional, comes from the film,“Godfather - Part III” (1990), in which “Godfather” Michael Corleone advises “Don’t hate your enemies. It affects your judgement.” And that is precisely where Democrats must position themselves today. I know that will be difficult, but hatred of the President must not eclipse the issues.
Democrats must keep their judgement clear, concentrate on these goals, and not let hatred of the President, however deserving it might be, cause them to take their eyes off the ball. Remain inspired by the words of Toni Morrison, but also, don’t ignore the advice of Michael Corleone: “Don’t hate your enemies. It affects your judgement.”
If you agree with this, please pass this message on to others. If you disagree, you can let me know.

One Step Too Far
|Birds of a feather|
Obviously, Bibi and President Dumbkopf both need every right-wing vote they can get and this is merely their joint attempt to do that. The defeat of Bibi in Israel's upcoming repeat election (and possibly his conviction in court cases being brought against him) would reopen the possibility of a 'two state solution' there. Hopefully, this will happen. Meanwhile, even Republicans are criticizing the President's actiion. Similarly, It is no sin for Jews to criticize Netanyahu for buckling under to the President's ill-considered request. His position as Israel's Prime Minister does not bestow upon him any "biblical" immunity.
