Letter: When will the hyprocrisy end?

“Many people are saying it was wonderful that Mrs. Obama refused to wear a scarf in Saudi Arabia, but they were insulted. We have enuf enemies”. This was a tweet from Donald Trump two years ago.

Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump both refused to wear scarves on their current trip to the same place, and President Donald Trump is apparently OK with that.

When is this blatant hypocrisy going to end? When are the amnesiac Republicans going to wake up? With him as president, I can now proclaim I am ashamed to be an American. The country that elected Donald Trump, deserves Donald Trump. How’s it working out for you so far, America?
