    Since he was inaugurated for his first term, the radical right wing has said, in every way imaginable, that he is not the “real” President, not “eligible” to be President, and has no legal “authority” to run the government. Is it any surprise at all that, among the people assigned to protect him BECAUSE he is the President, there is a lack of respect for his authority, his position, even to some extent his SAFETY? Are there one or more agents in his protective service who would not stop a bullet for him? For most Presidents, no. For one who has been criticized by more than half of the people in Congress as not possessing a legal authority, it may be possible. Let us pray that this question NEVER has to be answered, because I fear the answer may be “yes.”
