Watching the BOA and SC it's clear that Trump has taken his cue from Melrose for how to get regular meetings to turn into prayer/worship sessions, with all the nauseating, praising and gushing the officials (elected and hired) routinely heap on Rob Dolan and themselves, regardless of whether anything is worthy or not.
Simple, business-like, professional conduct from independent-minded and mature professionals is almost totally absent from nearly every one of Melrose meetings.
Instead, it's like pariah Trump's recent embarrassing, unpatriotic cabinet worship session that has become an international embarrassment, where the cabinet officials (except Tillerson) gushed about the blessing of DT's agenda, not the actual agenda and work of representing the American people.
The BOA and SC alike should be embarrassed by their devolving, increasingly shoddy and unprofessional conduct. RD is beyond any hope of redemption and needs some candidates of integrity and intelligence to run against him, as should be the case with all of the elected positions if this community has any self-respect left. If Melrose as a community does not care enough to muster some worthy candidates, then it deserves exactly as it's getting, which is really quite shameful.
