Letter to the Editor

Lies used to undermine the president

Tuesday, August 21, 2018

To the editor:

Evidently, I have put a burr in the saddle of two of your readers, Mr. Reed and Mr, Davis. When I look into the mirror, I see a reflection. We are all made in the image of God. (Genesis 1:26) I am not a hateful person (as you suggest, Mr. Reed.) I do not try to tell folks what to think. I weigh all the facts when making decisions. Some of the syndicated columnists are very good at slipping in their opinion to sway our thinking. (They make money from selling these articles.) All of us need to be aware of"smoke and mirrors." That tactic is used to try to deceive.

The reference was made that the POTUS has lied 4,200 times. I have seen that number thrown around on Yahoo (nota reliable source in my opinion) many times. I have never seen a list that has been proven or authenticated. Have you seen a list, Mr. Davis?

(I still believe in innocence until proven guilty by a court of law. I still believe in having respect for the office of the President no matter who is in the oval office.)

Yahoo and HuffPost make these out- landish remarks (4,200 is not believeable) with no evidence to back them up and they expect us to believe every word.

The biggest lie of the century was made by our former President, who said, "If you like your Doctor you can keep your Doctor.” That lie has hurt millions of people That lie has been documented on and off the camera.

My neighbor went to her doctor this year and was told she would have to pay a deductible of $1,100 before they could see her. Does that sound like affordable health care to you? Or smoke and mirrors?

Stella Adcock,

  • President Abraham Lincoln when told that his foes were telling lies on him, said the lies didn't bother him as long as they didn't tell the truth. President Trump should be thankful for the lies.\
