Peggy Noonan: ‘Weak and sniveling’ Trump is not as strong as his wife.
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan says President Trump’s primary problem as a leader is not that he is “inexperienced, crude, an outsider” but that he is “weak and sniveling” and “undermines himself almost daily by ignoring” traditional norms of American masculinity.
“He throws himself, sobbing, on the body politic,” Noonan wrote in her column Thursday.
“He’s a drama queen. It was once said, sarcastically, of George H.W. Bush that he reminded everyone of her first husband. Trump must remind people of their first wife. Actually his wife, Melania, is tougher than he is with her stoicism and grace, her self-discipline and desire to show the world respect by presenting herself with dignity.”
Noonan, a conservative who has been critical of Trump in the past, said half the president’s tweets show “utter weakness” and cast his attacks on news organizations and members of his own party as “whimpering accusation and finger-pointing.”
She said Trump’s “public brutalizing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions isn’t strong, cool and deadly” but “limp, lame and blubbery.”
Trump in recent days has targeted Sessions over his recusal from the Justice Department's ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. He told The New York Times he would have picked someone else for the job if he knew that was going to happen, and on Monday he called the former Alabama senator "beleaguered."
Noonan said the way American men used to like seeing themselves was the “strong silent type celebrated in mid-20th century films” but that the new style “was more like that of Woody Allen.”
