Trump definitely is a threat


To the editor:

(re: “Don’t blame Trump just because the world is a mess,” July 27)

Conservative commentators have described Trump in the following ways:

Ross Douhat wrote July 27 about Trump: “… he is clearly impaired, gravely deficient somewhere at the intersection of reason and judgment and conscience and self-control. This president should not be president, and the sooner he is not, the better.”

David Brooks on July 28: “The Trump administration is a moral cancer eating away at conservatism, the Republican Party, and what it means to be a public servant.”

When Mr. D’Holzer states that I have “gall” to write about President Trump, I respond that I am expressing my honest opinion about a president who observes no boundaries in attacking our right to vote and speak up.

Trump thinks he is a king, and that is a very dangerous idea in a nation founded on the rule of law. 

He is currently attacking the independence of the justice department. 

He has taken money from Russian oligarchs, which makes him beholden to a hostile, foreign power. 

He regularly attacks our political institutions, and degrades the credibility of the office of the presidency every single day.

So yes, I believe this chaos president is the greatest threat to our freedoms and security.

God is this guy a supreme dummy. Earth to Gold....Hilary sold our Uranium to Russia in return for a nice fat check to her foundation. And she did this while Secretary of State. And please tell me, did Putin personally switch the votes in Wisconsin and Pennsylvania? I don't think so. All I saw in those states, and all over the country, was a lot of pissed off voters angry at the establishment and ready, willing and able to vote anybody in who gave them a glimmer of hope.
