(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.
