How bad is the president?

To the Editor,

I’ll be borrowing a few categories from one of my old favorite’s today. Thanks, Keith Olberman.

I’ll be leaving the questions about the Mueller Report alive until we actually get to see it, but I’ll just say that I don’t trust Attorney General Bill Barr as far as I can toss his portly posterior with my left arm after having broken it in two places. After all, there was that unsolicited audition letter claiming that the president can’t be guilty of obstruction of justice. A recusal would have been the honorable thing to do, but then he wouldn’t have gotten the job.

Instead, we’ll be spending time discussing what I believe to be the most under-covered story of the most unscrupulous and scandal-ridden presidency in the history of this country.

It’s the forced dissolution and dissolvement of the Trump Foundation for self-dealing. It’s my understanding of the word self-dealing that it is nothing other than an euphemism for stealing. This finding by the court in New York state is not question — the Trump Foundation has admitted to it.

Of the two charities that I know of, one was a veterans’ charity, and the other was a childrens’ charity.

Let that sink in for a moment. Trump stole from veterans and Trump stole from children with cancer.

Now, I don’t know about you, but as far as I’m concerned, there’s not much worse than stealing from veterans and children with cancer.

I’ve given to both veterans’ charities and St. Jude’s Children Cancer Charity and, while I am not a religious man, I have seen the work that St. Jude’s does for those poor kids, and I have nothing but admiration and deep respect for what they do.

On the other hand, Trump does not. In effect, what he has done was to steal from the veterans who have risked their lives for us and from children with cancer,

Once again, stop and think about that. He stole money from veterans and children with cancer. Some of them could have died as a results of Donald John Trump’s actions.

If a person will steal from veterans and children with cancer, then what won’t they do? What is a bridge too far for someone who would do these things.

Now, I don’t know that Trump is the worst person in America, but I do know that there are none worser.

Once again, the Trump Foundation admitted to this and they have his signature on a memo directing his employees to use charity money to settle a lawsuit against one of his businesses.

Knowing all this and continuing to support him just might force you to contemplate the question, “Am I worse or worser or, in the category of Trump, worst?”
