To me, we cringe when the president does something like this, in part because we wouldn't do that, and in part because we know how others will take it. And yet the president is clearly saying what he believes. He's being authentic. And he isn't about to be cowed by political correctness. Aren't those good things? Do we really want him to be inauthentic, to lie the way most politicians do, and to be controlled by the political correctness of the media? The things he said are actually true. Ms. Ford doesn't remember a lot surrounding her accusation. And that indeed casts a measure of doubt on her allegation. If you were sitting on a jury hearing the case, wouldn't you take exactly those things in to account when coming to your verdict? So the only thing we're really talking about here is how this sounds to a lot of people. And we know Trump doesn't care about that. He cares to say what he thinks is the truth. That's his strength -- and his weakness as well. In the end, I'm rather glad he's the way he is. I really am sick of the political correctness. And I'm glad to hear a president who actually says what he thinks.

"There is no middle ground when it comes to our president." I guess you wrote that hyperbolically, Dr Brown. Some of us (including Ben Shapiro, whom you quoted) cheer for Trump when he's right and criticize Trump when he's wrong. I appreciate and support most of his policies, but I cringe at the pettiness, pride, peevishness, and profanity that he often displays.
