Letter to the editor: Trump, not Brennan, the ‘erratic’ one
President Trump revoked John Brennan’s security clearance, according to press secretary Sarah Sanders, because of his “erratic conduct and behavior.” Really? Has she ever read any of Trump’s scatterbrained tweets? If Trump weren’t president, he couldn’t even get a clearance to be a school crossing guard. Yet he is entrusted with the nation’s most secret intelligence information.
Trump only wants to listen to people who tell him what a great job he is doing — people like Alex Jones, who said the mass shooting in Sandy Hook, Conn., wasn’t real and that the victims were actors. These are the kind of people Trump listens to. It’s no wonder he believes Putin is America’s friend and countries like England, France, Canada and Germany are our enemies.
The people Trump surrounds himself with, like lawyer Michael Cohen, who pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations and other charges, and campaign chairman Paul Manafort, who was found guilty on eight charges, are an indication of the kind of people he associates with. It’s no wonder he considers the news media an enemy of the state. If he can get the American public to ignore facts and only believe his lies, then he has won.
We must not let this bully destroy our country with his lies, insults and demeaning of minorities. Our country is better than that. We as a people are better than that. Don’t be fooled by Trump’s lies. Get the facts, not fake news from a fake president.
