In this day and age of reckless reporting and skewed social media mania, a leader, especially one that has a litany of highly paid advisors and an astronomically high tax-funded budget to run his office, cannot claim to be the victim of malice without first putting in an effective effort, preemptively or retrospectively. You are not the beggar on the streets left to your own devices. You have all the tools at your disposal to clarify and rectify.
So when all you can muster are pathetic proclamations that does nothing to address the problem, there can only be two conclusions: either (1) you are insolently incompetent for the top job, or (2) you have done something indefensibly illegal. If you are the former, please make way for someone better. If you are the latter, better get out before they get you. In either case, unless you buck up and be a better boss, the nation is better off without you.
