Trump is a liar

Thursday, May 28, 2020

To the editor,

On May 23, when we have almost 100,000 Americans dead from coronavirus, Donald Trump was out playing golf at his Virginia resort.  All we can conclude from this is he was celebrating the deaths of all those people.  This is a man who claims he cares about the American people yet doesn't even have respect enough for others to wear a mask.  He must think he is some beauty with the orange hair, white circles around his eyes, and orange face.  He looks more like a clown than a president.

I don't know when the forever Trumpers are going to learn that this man is like a carnival barker who will tell us anything just to play his game.  He has over 18,000 confirmed lies and he lies to us every time he opens his mouth.  I know all of us lie, but this man doesn't know the truth.  As soon as he was elected, or before, he said he was going to build a wall and Mexico was going to pay for it.  Trump has been president for 3 1/2 years and has anyone seen Mexico paying for a wall?  He has taken much needed money from the military so he can repair the wall.  He doesn't care one thin dime about the military.

Trump knew about the coronavirus problem in early January but he waited at least three weeks before taking any action.  He was afraid it would hurt the economy which is the only thing he had left at the time.  All his other promises had gone flat.  This past week it came out that had action been taken sooner 80% of the lives could have been saved.  He was too busy promoting himself and demanding everyone else praise him. 

I do not believe for one minute that Trump has taken a regimen of hydroxychloroquine.  He claims he has been taking the drug, but with all the dangerous side effects I refuse to believe him.  He loves himself too much for that.  He wants everyone else to take it so he can huff and puff about it being helpful.  He could care less about how many people get sick or die from it's use.

This is a man who stood up on stage and asked his doctors if it would be a good idea to inject bleach and insert ultraviolet light into the body.  If a statement like that is not insane then nothing is.  There are many people in this country who would jump in a hole and let Trump bury them just to please him.  He is another Jim Jones, the fake preacher who had his followers drink poisoned Kool Aid.

Trump claims he wants the churches open.  All he is doing is pandering to his base.  If he is so religious then why doesn't he go to church on Sunday?  I have only seen him go to church about twice since he has been president.  He is so ignorant that he doesn't know that prayers can be said anywhere we are.  This is a man who said he had nothing for which to ask forgiveness.  Can anyone in their right mind say the same?  He is a pitiful excuse for a human being.  

This November just remember all the lies told by the 45th president.  He claims Joe Biden is too old to be president.  Trump is only about 5 years younger, so he is no young whipper snapper.  Biden does act like an adult, and he has compassion for other people.  Trump has the mentality of an 8-year-old child and acts even worse.  Trump is all about Donald J. Trump, PERIOD!
