March Letter To The Editor

Donald Trump??  Really?  That’s who the Republican’s think should be President of the United States?  A modern-day snake-oil salesman, a flimflam man??  Mr. Trump is a master manipulator, and he’s trying to manipulate himself right into the White House.  I’ve heard poor misguided supporters say that “he speaks his mind,” or “he tells it like it is.”  Again, really??  Donald Trump speaks for effect, and what he says has nothing to do with what he really thinks.  His speeches are about as genuine as his hair line.

Mr. Trump speaks with little regard for the truth, makes promises with little regard for the impossibility of keeping them, and attacks others on a personal level with little regard for decorum or integrity.  I’ve heard Republicans and Conservatives lament about the “integrity of the office,” but they still support Trump?

Trump supporters, like Tea Party Activists, are comprised primarily of “the angry white man” and those who make a profit from manipulating them.  The anger comes from the pain of hard times, a longing for “the good old days,” and an inability to accept inevitable change.  Where that anger is directed comes from racism, bigotry, and a lifetime of brainwashing by those who tell them that the immigrants, the minorities, the liberals, the gays, and the Muslims are the real cause of all their problems.

But who knew that there was enough of this anger and these misguided folks to get someone like Trump so far along the path to the GOP nomination?
