If Americans haven't already had enough, the president has now threatened a journalist with violence. The president's crude remarks implied that he would injure the man, including smashing his face.

He also attacked the man's ancestry.

This president already has the lowest approval rating of any other in American history. His profanity laced speeches and public comments have demeaned the office. And some of his crude private remarks, which have come to light, are deeply offensive to decent women and young ladies.

I am speaking, of course, about Harry S. Truman.

Often ranked by historians as one of the greatest presidents in American history.

While the national media gives the impression that Donald J. Trump's approval rating is at record lows, it is actually twice as high as Harry Truman's low moment, which at one point dipped to 22 percent.

The media says that Trump's contempt for them is dangerous and a threat to democracy, but it pales when compared to Harry Truman, Richard Nixon — and even Bill Clinton.

Both Truman and Clinton threatened physical violence against journalists in their time.

Clinton threatened to punch William Safire in the face when he called his wife, Hillary Clinton, a congenital liar in a column in The New York Times.

Truman, like Trump, was incensed about how his daughter was being treated.

Donald Trump saw Nordstrom's drop her line of merchandise, their nod to the politically correct leftists, who now berate the American people in street riots and entertaining YouTube messages filled with the F word.

President Harry Truman directed his anger at a music critic who panned his daughter, Margaret. But Truman was far more belligerent than Donald Trump. He called the writer, an "eight ulcer man on four ulcer pay."

Said Truman, "It seems to me that you are a frustrated old man who wishes he could have been successful. When you write such poppy-cock as was in the back section of the paper you work for it shows conclusively that you're off the beam and at least four of your ulcers are at work.

"Some day I hope to meet you. When that happens you'll need a new nose, a lot of beefsteak for black eyes, and perhaps a supporter below!

"Pegler, a gutter snipe, is a gentleman alongside you. I hope you'll accept that statement as a worse insult than a reflection on your ancestry."

History-deprived journalists, some obvious products of the American public school system, without the advantage of a private education, which presidents and their children enjoy, are quick to label everything that Trump is doing as unprecedented and alarming.

This may reveal more about them than about Trump.

The only thing unprecedented is his non-political way of running the office; which is rather comforting to those of us who were hoping he wasn't a politician.

And then there is the fact that he seems to be keeping his word.

Now, that's a switch from recent occupants of the White House.

How well we remember "Read my lips no new taxes."

Or, "I did not have sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky."

Or, "The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa."

Or, "You can even keep your own doctor."

No, Trump hasn't threatened to punch anybody in the nose, like Truman. He doesn't have a Fiddle and Faddle on staff to service his sexual needs as did allegedly, John F. Kennedy. He hasn't appointed his best friend to run the IRS, which Hillary Clinton did, who then just happened to audit the president's enemies, including the women who accused her husband of sexual assault.

At some point, hyper ventilating, arrogant journalists, who insisted that American had to choose between Trump and Clinton, and no one else, must accept the results of an election they tried to manipulate. So let us get on with restoring the greatness of America.

You journalists have your job, dictating to all the rest of us how to talk and think and live, how about letting us get a paying job for ourselves?

Thanks, President Trump, for Carrier, for Ford, and now for Intel. And thanks for refusing to take your own salary. Nobody mentions that.

And like all the presidents before you, keep standing up for your daughter!

That's a dad's right. All dad's. Even if that dad is president.
