    true enough. however, when that person exhibits the same defective behavior- time & time again... then that person is defective & in this case, unfit to hold office. especially as POTUS.

    No denying that; however, plenty of people are (1) willing to "own" that they erred in various ways, (2) remorseful of their errant words and deeds, and (3) as a consequence of those two things, particularly when their regret be sincere, diligent about not repeating the same types blunders. Most people's blunders do not achieve widespread advertency, whereas some, and sometimes many, committed by willfully public figures occasionally do, as well they should for if one serves the public, the public has the right to demonstrable evidence that one has learned from one's mistakes, which is possible to do only if one acknowledges that one f*cked-up in the first place. After all, evolving in that way is largely all that's expected of one. That is the limit of the expectation because we all have made mistakes in our past.

    With regard to the expected behavior pattern noted above -- that of blunder, atone, refrain from repeating the blunder -- one can of that process take a transactional view or a holistic approach. Taking the former approach, one will abjure transgressing in the same way with the same individual; however, one will consider that doing/saying the same thing(s) to others do not constitute making the same mistake again. In contrast, taking a holistic approach, one will extend to all the respect of not against them committing the same genre of offense.

    It's worth noting that some transgressions are somewhat transactional with regard to whom they offend. For instance one cannot commit adultery against anyone but one's spouse; thus one need not be concerned about doing so to others. On the other hand, one can palter to myriad others, and to do so repeatedly -- to both specific individuals and in general -- is both temerarious and turpitudinous.

    Donald Trump's past checks all the boxes for a great President. A solid all American family, a long track record of success in private life and a true appreciation of America, the country that allowed him to succeed. That is why he puts America and Americans first.

    Contrast that with the sad jumbled mystery that was Obama's past. A father that left, a single clueless mother. Passed around to Grandparents and finally raised by devout Communist Frank Marshall Davis. Oh what was his real name? Barry Sotero? Where was he born? Hawaii? Kenya? Indonesia? Who knows? How about his academic records? All sealed? Why? Oh well, how about his friends and close associates? What Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorn, Tony Rezko? Good Lord! What church did he attend faithfully for 20 years? Jeremiah "God Damn America" Wright?" WTF??

    Obama's past is better suited for the King of Somalia and not the POTUS.

    Lots of celebrities run for office worldwide. Remember Peter Sodann (lol)? Here in the US we like out celebrities so it makes sense they run for office and win. We’ve had multiple celebrity presidents. I personally don’t think celebrity hurts a persons chances I think it probably increases them if anything.
