Roughriding the White House

Laughing at the "superior intellect"!
For those confused or disheartened by the current administrations latest focus on non-issues, please be assured Teddy Roosevelt has got your back:

Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the President or any other public official save exactly to the degree in which he himself stands by the country. It is patriotic to support him in so far as he efficiently serves the country. It is unpatriotic not to oppose him to the exact extent that by inefficiency or otherwise he fails in his duty to stand by the country. In either event, it is unpatriotic not to tell the truth–whether about the President or about any one else–save in the rare cases where this would make known to the enemy information of military value which would otherwise be unknown to him.

Theodore Roosevelt
from the essay "Lincoln and Free Speech"
