Turning against the president

To the Editor,

Let’s begin with an abbreviated history of the Trump presidency, such as it is, and then move along to current events and President Individual No. 1.

Last year and early on this year, he separated children, some toddlers, from their mothers and fathers. And no, President Obama didn’t.

Then he was sued by the state of New York for stealing from charities. A veterans charity and a children’s cancer charity (St. Jude’s). He’s currently not allowed to be involved with any charity in the state of New York. They are deciding whether or not to charge him and his sons criminally.

I don’t know about you, but as far as I am concerned, there’s not a whole lot of actions lower than stealing from veterans and children with cancer.

After that, Trump revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan because Brennan criticized him.

Admiral William McRaven, who was the leader of the operation to eliminate Osama bin Laden and previously had never spoken on anything political, wrote an op-ed in the Washington Post saying that “I would consider it an honor if you would revoke my security clearance as well, so I can add my name to the list of men and women who have spoken up against your presidency.” The admiral went on to defend Brennan and the news media after the president criticized McRaven and the media. Fifteen security specialists joined McRaven.

Now, let’s move along to the more current events of the presidency.

First of all, he was named individual No. 1 in Michael Cohen’s sentencing hearing. For those of you who don’t believe Cohen, Trump’s friend and publisher at the National Enquirer agrees, and so does Allen Weisselberg, the Trump Organization CFO. They both have turned state’s evidence.

Local Trump defense writers have proven themselves to be nothing more than dead-enders, displaying intellects best described by the Dunning-Kruger effect. That basically means that they aren’t smart enough to know that they’re not very smart.
