Former South Dakota Senator Larry Pressler joins the chorus of honest citizens who recognize Donald Trump threatens democracy in America:
Pressler has been sizing-up the field running for president in both parties and says Donald Trump should not serve in the White House again.
“I’m speaking way out of line here, but here I go: some things Donald Trump has said would lead us to an authoritarian form of government. And we have to kind of stand up and say, ‘Hey, wait a minute — we want democracy; we want every little person’s views taken into consideration,’” Pressler said [Perry Groten, “Pressler Calls out Congress,” KELO-TV, 2023.11.13].
The worst Pressler can say about President Joe Biden is that, like himself, he’s a stale old fart:
Pressler says President Biden, who he considers a friend from his days serving with Biden on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is too old to seek re-election.
“I’m his exact age and I can’t do everything I used to do and I’m worried about him as he plows into this thing. I’m one of these guys, I don’t accept these old-age guys in politics. I think old-age guys should be advisors and spiritual counselors, or something. But we cannot provide that leadership your young guys can do,” Pressler said [Groten, 2023.11.13].
