Patriotism – The Word Means

Just so there’s no doubt, patriotism means

None of these widely recognized, authoritative sources mention The President.

While I’m sure most of us assume the President should be a patriot, that doesn’t seem to be guaranteed. And the reverse, liking the President and/or his (or her) acts, does not make you a patriot.

You are welcome to do so, to like the President, but don’t call yourself a patriot for that reason. That’s not the word means.
