Letters: Reader addresses Trump supporters

To Donald Trump supporters:

It was bad enough when you backed the man who “never settles” a lawsuit but paid out $25 million to former students who had sued Trump University for fraud; who bragged about using his status to barge into the dressing rooms of underage beauty contestants; who promised to reveal his tax returns and now refuses to do so; who wimped out of military service because of an alleged sore heel, yet mocked Sen. John McCain’s service because of his capture by the North Vietnamese; who, on national television, in what appeared to be a flagrant act of obstruction of justice, admitted that he fired then FBI director James Comey “because of the Trump-Russia thing.”

It is bad enough that you back the man who threatens war with North Korea based on the findings of U.S. intelligence agencies, but who then refuses to accept the findings of those same agencies when they all agree that Russia interfered in our election to aid candidate Trump.

It is bad enough that Trump can find more outrage for the New York Times, CNN, Diet Coke, Nordstrom’s, Gold Star Families, and New Hampshire than he can for Vladimir Putin.

But what is really, really bad is that you now find yourself on the side of the man who defends white supremacists, the KKK, and Nazis.

Have you no sense of decency? At long last, have you no sense of decency?
