IMO, his track record so far indicates that assuming his actions being nefarious, counterproductive, shortsighted or just plain stupid is more apt to be correct than otherwise.

You know exactly what "get a pass" means and you are completely missing the point. This country has always had certain higher standards that should be met before we hand over control of our military, our budget, our social programs, the welfare of our people and our allies. Those standards include honesty--some degree of integrity--a high degree of intelligence and a boatload of social skills--because our president is supposed to represent ALL OF US. Our president is supposed to show some respect--some decency--some compassion, generosity, courtesy, and moral compass.

MY job and your job is to hold Trump to these standards--to insist on transparency. WE the people are his compass and his watchdogs. WE GET TO determine what we like and don't like about the job he does and his behavior. AND, gratefully, we get to express our disgust when he veers off course.
AND YOU of all people, being a Christian, should NOT accept behavior that is unChristian--every single day--from YOUR president.
