I agree with you about Trump.  Trump is only interested in what benefits Trump. 

I think in his heart he thought he was doing what benefited the country, but I also think he was given some very bad advice.  I was certainly not fond of Bushcheneyrove, but he had a political background from a political family.  He was at least aware of protocols and "how things are done."  He was a very poor president, but a relatively decent human being, neither of which one can say about Trump.

I was with the system for 12 years, almost to the day, and we had so few instances of poorly mannered kids that I can't recall one at the moment.

We served an appreciative community.  They loved their library and let us know they did.  It was a pleasure to work there.  I can't speak for the other branches.

I presume that there will be great demand for the computers to make job applications as soon as the library opens again.  There is no other place in the community which serves this critical need.

I agree Bush was a mediocre president.

That many people don’t have access to the internet?  Pretty much everyone here has a cell phone.

I also think Bush has grown since his presidency.  I would love to have heard GHW Bush's conversations with Obama.  
 

I disliked Cheney intensely and Rove was horrid.  I think Bush wanted the war because of his dad; he was way outmatched with Cheney as VP.  At least he could show empathy when our country needed it.

I feel it has been too easy to forget the tragedy our nation suffered as a whole. No POTUS is prepared.

Times have changed or maybe the staff we have has.

Not everyone can afford a computer, and not everyone knows how to use one.  I can't speak to cell phones.  I have one, but it's not internet capable.  Those are expensive.  There's enough poverty and low incomes in the county to create a great demand for the library's computers.

No.  Some have responded well; some have not.

Lincoln was president during a terrible, terrible war, but died before he could tend to the crisis of the aftermath of that war.

Roosevelt handled a depression and a great war.  He receives criticism for both, but in retrospect, he did a pretty good job.

Truman gave the order to drop the atomic bomb.  What a terrible decision to make, but it contributed to ending the war (at least some contend that it did; some do not). 

Johnson had Vietnam, which he did not handle well, but he also managed to push the Civil Rights Act of 1964 through Congress.  In retrospect, a great achievement in and of itself.

I really don't know how Wilson handled the pandemic of 1918.

History will tell us more clearly how this one has handled the crises of his time in office.
