Letter: What's wrong with Donald Trump?

To the Editor:

I am disgusted by Donald Trump and his continuous lies and horrendous behavior on a daily basis. What is more concerning for me, however, is the fact that his supporters continue to make excuses for him and label everything as fake news. I understand we all have different political views, and that is fine, but this man is just an egotistical idiot. 

What is wrong with these people who support him? How can they be so gullible to believe all the lies? He has been confronted with videos of his lies, and he denies them. He was confronted about his behavior toward a disabled reporter, and denied it.

How can his supporters be so accepting of his insults to just about everybody who has the audacity to disagree with him? I know many of our elected officials lie and are unethical, but they look like saints compared to this guy. Other politicians have fallen from the grace of the public for far less than what Trump has done.

This week he made enemies with most, if not all, of our allies, and then cozies up to Russian President Vladimir Putin. At best, it is disgraceful, and at worst, it is treasonous. He has turned this country into the laughingstock of the world. To Trump’s supporters – is this what you were hoping for? Well, congratulations, you got what you voted for.

To those who did not vote because you really didn’t like Hillary Clinton or Trump, you are partly responsible for the mess we are in, too. To the Republican Party members who don’t have the backbone to stand up for what is right and impeach this man, shame on you. Are you going to just stand by and watch him and his lemmings ruin our country?

Midterms are coming – vote. Before you know it, the next presidential election will be upon us – vote. The majority of the country did not vote for this man, but it was not enough to keep him out of office. We can’t let this happen again.
