Letter to the editor: McConnell’s hatred, Trump’s promises
In reply to letter-writer Bob Jacobs ( “Impeach Pelosi,” Jan. 29, TribLIVE): Buckle up, Buttercup: No matter how much you whine, stamp your feet or cry to the heavens, Nancy Pelosi will still be speaker of the house. Funny how you mention her hatred of Trump but so easily forget Mitch McConnell’s hatred of President Obama. Can you say hypocrite?
In an unprecedented show of hate, McConnell didn’t even hold hearings on Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, even though the president (who was elected twice by the people) had more than a year left in office.
And whatever happened to the 10 percent middle class tax cut President Trump boasted about during the midterm elections? Not another word after the election. Imagine that. File that with, “Day one, I will produce the greatest infrastructure plan ever seen!”and “Day one, I will produce the greatest health care plan ever seen and it will be easy to do, I promise!”
It was sad to watch the goose-steppers standing in the crowds shouting, “Mexico!” Remember, “Mexico will pay for the wall and be glad to do it, I promise!”? But like he said, he loves the uneducated.
