Frankly, it might be. Question is, how do we avoid falling into such a trap? Can we keep from sniping at each other and truly focus on the real problems in a controlled, professional manner? We need to.
My point, don’t let “just words” from an official (POTUS or otherwise) drive you to a point of no return in anger. It simply gives them the edge. And if you want to win the argument, keep a cool head.
