President Trump is a Prude Compared to Truman, Jefferson and Adams

David Gordon writes:
People who think that President Trump’s colorful remarks about critics are unprecedented should read Harry Truman’s letter to Paul Hume, the Washington Post‘s music critic, who had criticized a performance by Truman’s daughter Margaret.
And this from Tom Dilorenzo:
 “A Hideous Hermaphroditical Character; Son of a Half-Breed Indian Squaw; a Libertine and a Coward . . .”
These are a few of the names Thomas Jefferson and John Adams called each other during the presidential election campaign of 1800.  Compared to this, Trump’s “Crazy Joe” tweet seems very tame.  I for one would like to see more of this.  It provides the public with a much more realistic picture of politics.
