Donald J. Who?

Sure he’ll be president January 20, but if Barack Obama had pulled stunts like these eight years ago when he was president-elect, yet still a private citizen, there’d have been a loud noise from the political right who claim the mantle of conservative order (@realDonaldTrump):

Based on the tremendous cost and cost overruns of the Lockheed Martin F-35, I have asked Boeing to price-out a comparable F-18 Super Hornet!

I guess this is an example of what we’re to take seriously, but not literally. Is he trying to be the hero we deserve, but not the one we need right now? And why is the president-elect acting out a Dark Knight quote?

Putting aside the F-18’s lack of stealth and decades-old design, what are we talking about here? Money alone? Since when is that the criteria for national defense?

I don’t know what’s more frightening: Trump’s lack of subject knowledge, or his ignorance of presidential behavior. Words have consequences, just as elections do. The world is listening, Donald.
