Trump: Don't give us your huddled masses
To the Editor:
Immigrants started this country, not ignorance.
Newspapers do not have a mute button. Unfortunately the publications, such as tabloids, which give false news, hide behind freedom of the press and the First Amendment. False news? Mr. Trump enjoyed free air time when it was available to him during the campaign season. As soon as the tide turned and he got the keys to the store, the media, who made him and gave him the adulation he craves, became his nemesis.
Let’s cut to the chase.
Mr. Swenson, you talk about my writing with criticism. How is it that Mr. Trump did what you are complaining about while on the campaign trail, inspiring his supporters to be thugs on television? In North Carolina, one of his supporters gave a cheap shot to a protester and said that if he’d had a gun he would’ve assaulted that person. What alternate ideas would you have for a 70-year-old bigot with a mob mentality?
Now he is consumed with the size of the crowd at his coronation. And now more bizarrely this fixation that illegal immigrants were able to vote, but they didn’t vote for him, so now he wants an investigation. I guess it’s just like his birther diatribe, and like the detectives he sent to Hawaii. It’s funny that we never heard back from that fantasy. This is all infantile, is all this attention compulsive disorder?
Mr. Swenson, what proposals do you want put forward to deal with a man who applauds himself and thinks the world revolves around him? Every time he signs an executive order that will affect someone with his minions behind him, his feeling of self-importance grows. Meanwhile, the world gets scarier because you have to expect the unexpected because of a man with no reason.
We all enjoy the right of expression and agree to disagree. Now you can put this letter on mute. More to follow.
Thank you for your time,
