With Respect to ‘Respect’

A lot of people are saying we all need to respect the office of the presidency, even if we don’t like the man. I respect the office. I also respect police officers and teachers. But when any of them act like a bully, a jerk, or against the best interest of the public they serve, they lose the privilege of my respect.
