Negative Class


My dog is not classy.  In fact, he has no class.  After all, he’s just a dog.  But zero class is still better than negative class!

I was appalled when candidate Trump trashed a personal hero to me, the late Senator John McCain.  Now, I am appalled that the former President trashed another personal hero of mine, General Colin Powell.  In fact, it is sickening for the former leader of the free world to trash the dead!  My mother always told me to “never speak evil of the dead.”

If Trump said nothing at the passing of a great person, we could say he has no class or zero class, which is bad enough, but bad-mouthing the dead is worse than zero class.

Policy is important, but so is decency . . . and Trump has none!
