Letter: The right’s blindness to hypocrisy

Published: 10/21/2020 12:01:50 AM

In response to Mr. Strang (letter of Oct. 16), Biden won’t answer about plans for the Supreme Court. Since a president cannot unilaterally change the court, perhaps he doesn’t want to sound foolish for saying something that he couldn’t possibly guarantee. For example, it’s like saying “We’re going to build a wall and Mexico will pay for it.”

Then let’s consider things President Trump refused to commit to. He would not commit to the existence of a pandemic, global warming, or white supremacist groups. He will not commit to the efficacy of masks.

Is this really a power grab? Would that be like rushing through a Supreme Court nomination within weeks of the election. The Republicans seem to see no hypocrisy in that regardless of their actions in 2016. “Deriving just powers from the consent of the governed,” lest you forget this current president lost the popular vote by over 3 million votes. There were many people who didn’t give their consent.

Regarding the call to “save our Constitution,” this president has repeatedly ignored our Constitution – using the White House for political rallies, ignoring the separation of powers and the emolument clause. So yes, it is imperative for people to vote but not for the current office holder.
