    Why not? Did not Shakespeare himself use expressions such as "Master Bellows-Mender" instead of the rudeness of an abrupt, unadorned, "Hey, you, Bellows-Mender!"? What about "Madam Chairman", which might be regarded as sexist, but it is hardly ungrammatical.

    Mister or Madame President is the proper way to address the President.

    hm idk if it's grammatically correct, but when someone says Mr. President, they are referring to the president as President, as if that were his/her name. It's just what we Americans say to be polite to our president.
