Presidentialities

April 10, 1988

What a poor loser George Scott turned out to be! Granted the series "Mr. President" didn't showcase Scott's talents like "Patton" and ended up trivializing the office of the presidency. But Scott took the money and only now bites the hand that fed him.

He would have earned more respect for his hair-shirt complaints if he'd pulled out instead of being canceled out.

But it was only after the producers and executives whom Scott maligns decided to end the poorly rated series that Scott publicly labels them as "malodorous" and displays his backbiting contempt for their values.

What seemed to bug Scott the worst was his lost opportunity to serve as "the conscience of the nation."

With the self-serving, supercilious attitude and poor sportsmanship Scott revealed, we're lucky the series ended before he had the chance!
