Letter: Distracted by Trump

Published: 7/22/2019 12:01:14 AM

For much of the current administration in Washington, I have tried to focus on state and local issues instead, but sometimes it gets very disturbing to hear the news from Washington.

History tells us that telling lies about your political opponents is not unique to our place or our time, but now he whose name shall not be mentioned, the birther-in-chief, has invited four U.S. citizens, who are members of Congress, to go back to the countries where they came from. Fact check: Three of them were born here in the United States and the fourth is a naturalized citizen. Then, far from apologizing for his error, he gleefully (not unlike how our governor wields his veto pen) invited them to apologize to him, for exactly what I’m not clear. What’s worse is, I’m sure that my distress over this makes 45’s supporters squeal with delight.
