Guest: Donald Nieman, PhD, Presidential Historian, Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost, Binghamton University, State University of New York Fresh off the national President’s Day Holiday and the start of Donald Trump’s second month in office, let’s look at the question of “acting presidential.” A fair amount of criticism lobbed in Trump’s direction during the campaign - and since his inauguration - relates to his unorthodox approach to the presidency: he calls people names on Twitter; he holds rambling press conferences in which he complains at length about how the media is covering him; he’s turned his nose up at Camp David in favor of retreating to his ritzy private club in Florida every weekend since he took office.
