Letter to the editor


To the editor: Once upon a time your words get the attention of elementary school children and Trump devotees. Kids love fantasy stories. Trumpites are apparently comfortable in D.T.’s alternate reality, where absurd lies are not only tolerated but also defended vigorously.

My June letter to the editor, “Trump and Trumpites,” listed in alphabetical order 26 character flaws, which disqualifies the current White House occupier from even remotely resembling an honorable presidential figure. However, he does have many similarities akin to a grossly obese, lawless Jabba the Hutt — in an ill-fitting suit.

There are people who actually say a redeeming character trait of Trump’s is he takes a salary of a dollar or two. I say, “What grifter would not accept a job, a wage of $2 in order to receive emoluments worth millions annually?”

State of New York justice system terminated the Trump Foundation. Tax-free exemption “charity” was denounced as a self-serving grifters scam. Most of the monies collected did not go to nonprofit outfits.

No, instead, the Trumps used it for personal expenditures and the presidential campaign. Trump and his three grown children were ordered to pay millions to legal charities.

Donald J. Trump is guilty of being a rabid parasite who fed ravenously on the students’ morale. Judge presiding over the Trump University con minced few words when addressing Trump.

Students had hopes, dreams of bettering their lives betrayed by Trump, who said, “Trust me.” The swindler paid a heavy fine and was ordered to pay restitution to those flim-flammed, demoralized by Trump trickery.

Why was Trump’s first presidential visit overseas to Saudi Arabia? Why not a European democracy? Trump organization has five known shell companies located in the monarchy.

Constitution of the United States is 232 years old now. President Trump stated, “Republican Party is protecting, defending this document.” Lie No. 12,463.

Kowtowing Republican Party has permitted Trump to give used toilet paper status to the two detailed emolument clauses.

Alaska Republicans, defend the Constitution! Be patriots, not compliant party dupes. Help oust our Constitution’s offensive offenders Sullivan and Young next year.
