Leonard Pitts Jr. article 7/16/2017

63 million voted for this guy---that’s the problem It is difficult for me to believe that you are still afforded the opportunity to write columns as you do. In this one you had the audacity to refer to President Trump as “a lying, narcissistic, manifestly incompetent child man who is as dumb as a sack of mackerel.” How low have we sunk as Americans to treat elected officials with such verbiage? Your representation of the 63 million is totally off base. They were not angry at Obama’s color but at his ineffectiveness to govern. Race relations deteriorated during his eight years. I believe it started when he referred to a police officer as being stupid during a confrontation with a black professor. It never stopped as he went after law enforcement creating an environment where police backed off from doing the job we as citizens want. His abandoning of our people in Benghazi was deplorable. The engagement continued for 13 hours without a rescue mission. The health care bill was and still is a disaster which the Republicans are trying to resolve without any assistance from your party. The Clinton Foundation was a gigantic loophole for the Clintons to receive multi millions from countries all over the earth. Have you checked recently to see if Hillary is still racking in funds like she did before the election? The people I know who voted were small town people who had histories of working to provide for their families, not fat cats. We also want to preserve our Constitutional way of life. We are not interested in Socialism or Communism. I will admit that we have a genuine fear of Islam forcing its way all thru Europe and also hear at home. Their principles are directly opposed to our way of life. It wasn’t Trump we voted for, it was against the Socialist Bernie Sanders and the not to be trusted Hillary. Our goal was to slow down the train taking us to oblivion. If Trump fails, our great experiment on self-governing will end. Jack B. Walters
