Letters to the Editor

It is a gross understatement to say, “Things are really bad over the entire globe these days.” It is also an understatement to say, “Donald Trump is probably the worst person to be our president now and for the past three-plus years!” This deceptive, divisive, dangerous and childish egotist uses social media and Fox News to constantly spew his asinine, meaningless and totally partisan rants of ignorance. I am beginning to wonder if Trump has read “Mein Kampf”?

The entire world is combatting an unseen yet extremely lethal COVID-19 virus. If ever there was a time for the world to come together, it is now! It is also extremely past time for all Americans to come together if we can. With this divisive egotist in our White House, he makes this coming together almost impossible, even in the midst of this deadly global pandemic. Trump’s inflammatory tweets, and all his tweets for that matter, are the very center, the very cause of so much division and, yes, hatred among “We The People”!

In closing, I will tell the abbreviated version of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Emperor’s New Clothes." This emperor allowed two clothes-makers to make him a glamorous new suit. These two clothes-makers convinced the emperor that he was indeed wearing the beautiful suit, but all of the unbelievers and critics would see it being invisible. During the grand parade, out of hundreds of spectators, only one child yelled out the truth – the emperor was naked! I state, with all of my being, America must have hundreds of millions of citizens like this child! We must demand truth in and from our government now.
