Letter: Hello! Are you awake?


The last 530-plus days have been exhausting. It’s exhausting to wake up each day and find what kind of provable lies, misogynistically derogatory comments and hateful xenophobic inflammatory statements and/or tweets have been belched out over the airwaves by the president.

It’s doubly exhausting to see how many people in this country have come to accept this as normal behavior; people in leadership who in years past would have claimed to be champions of “family values” and “law and order” and would have challenged the person making such statements. Not today.

In spite of the heinous nature of the never-ending stream of hateful, hurtful blather and comments by the president, made without the slightest hint of reality, 40 percent of the people in this country still think the president is the best, the smartest, the toughest, the healthiest, the best coiffed person to ever sit in the Oval Office. These morally bankrupt people have sold their souls for a second-rate TV personality and third-rate businessman for seats on the Supreme Court and tax cuts for the rich.

God help the future and national security of our country.

Larry Donaldson, Elida
