Regarding the March 19 column “No, not Trump, not ever,” Ah, David Brooks, in his condemnation of Donald Trump, thinks Trump is a blowhard, enormous ego, stretches the truth, his integrity is questionable, etc., but I think the same adjectives could apply to Hillary Clinton.
Brooks said, “We expected Trump to fizzle because we were not socially intermingled with his supporters and did not listen carefully enough.” He just stated the problem with Washington.
The legislators have not socially intermingled with, or cared enough about those without jobs, those struggling daily to put food on the table. He described Trump as a scapegoating, fear-driving and deceiving demagogue. This description perfectly describes the people running our country.
The “good-ol’ boys Washington network” is terrified of an outsider. They want more of the same; they have it made and beware anything, or anyone, who might upset their perfect Eden.
I’m not saying Trump is the answer. I agree he fits a lot of the adjectives Brooks used, but so does Clinton. Alas, it seems with both parties, we have run out of candidates who deserve the title “President of the United States.” God bless America – we need it.
