Letters to the Editor

Trump specializes in incompetence and disrespect

To earn respect, you must extend it to others. I refuse to respect the current occupant of the Oval Office until he expresses his respect for the following:

All immigrants, documented or not, their families, and their children;

Megyn Kelly, Leslie Stahl, and all journalist women of color;

Heather Heyer, who was murdered by one of the “very fine people” who marched for fascism in Charlottesville;

George Floyd and Black Lives Matter;

The Khan and McCain families, and all those “losers” who died in combat;

Alexander Vindmann, Marie Yovanovich, and all the professional civil servants who testified against him during his impeachment;

Kamala Harris, who he has called “nasty” and a “monster;”

Every American he has called “far left” and “radical left;”

In the end, I cannot respect that man until he stands trial for decades of tax and financial fraud, and faces a popular tribunal for his wanton incompetence, cruelty and corruption while pretending to be “president.”
