If you and I fall into bad moral habits, we can harm our families, our employers and our friends. The President of the United States can incinerate the planet. Seriously, the very idea that we ought to have at or less than the same moral demands placed on the Chief Executive that we place on our next door neighbor is ludicrous and dangerous.

Throughout our history, we have seen the presidency as the repository of all of our highest hopes and ideals and values. To demand less is to do an injustice to the blood that bought our freedoms.
....
Further, the Presidents (sic) repeated lies to the American people in this matter compound the case against him as they demonstrate his failure to protect the institution of the presidency as the 'inspiring supreme symbol of all that is highest in our American ideals.'

It was implicitly understood by all Republicans this article of democratic institutions did not apply to Republicans.

Mr Trump has not only exposed the disgusting underbelly of bigotry which engulfs the Republican party, but has brought the spotlights to bear on the hypocrisy which personifies Republicans.
