Prager made his case quite well!

His case is fully covered by the statements he made below:

What Trump accomplishes as president matters more than whether he’s a good father figure.

The answer should be so obvious that I am disappointed all conservatives do not readily understand it. The role of the president of the United States is first and foremost to be a good president. If he (or she) is a personal role model, that is a lovely bonus — but it is only a bonus.

If your house were on fire, would you be more concerned with the character of the firefighters sent to extinguish the fire or their firefighting ability?

The generation that grew up under one of the most decent presidential moral models — Dwight Eisenhower — turned out to be the most narcissistic, morally confused, and unpatriotic generation in modern American history. So much for presidents as models for children.


I'll bet you made few comments on the morality and character of Bill Clinton. Where you one of the people touting Bill's ability to "compartmentalize". Hillary's behavior is more disgusting than Trumps. She's far more stealthy than Trump. At least with Trump you know what you're getting.
