Unlike the 70s, this time around, a big piece of our malaise is that we’re saddled with a president who simply does not care about the suffering of Americans. Has there been any instance in which he has shown genuine empathy towards others? He met with the relatives of the Marines who were killed in Afghanistan and talked about his son. He attended a 9/11 memorial on the tenth anniversary of that fateful day and complained about people protesting him. He hasn’t even put the needs of his own children ahead of his own.
