Showing Class/Martin Rosenfeld, JD

Posted on August 16, 2020


This tweet was sent out by VP Joseph Biden upon learning the of the death of Robert Trump:

“Mr. President, Jill and I are sad to learn of your younger brother Robert’s passing. I know the tremendous pain of losing a loved one — and I know how important family is in moments like these. I hope you know that our prayers are with you all.”

It is very disarming when a party can show class to an opponent, whether one in is locked in a dispute or a political fight. Showing class brings the human touch to what is otherwise a rancorous situation. Class is always in style. When engaged in a confrontational exchange try it. It truly works. It will open up channels of communication that were once closed.

Mediate don’t litigate.
