Thank you for your Editorial: “Where do I begin?”. “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men (and women) to do nothing”. Remember the Holocaust? I agree totally with your statement: “Trump and everything he stands for leads to evil”, and the Republicans enable him.
He is a blatant liar. The debate was thoroughly disgusting. He is a bully, a misogynist, and the list could continue on for some time. Where is the ‘integrity and honour’ here? Some people think because he is a bully that he is strong? People who are truly strong stand up to tyrants and bullies, even at their own expense. Many of these people are persecuted.
I have heard some people also say that they like him because he is not a politician. No, he’s not. Politicians are supposed to do good things for the populace. Trump does not. He looks after himself and his family and the billionaire friends who support him and get their rewards for doing so. He is the exact definition (in the dictionary) of a tyrant. It is beyond understanding, among the great mysteries of this world, how people can still support him.
The news about Mr. Trump is maybe not so surprising. The man who said Covid was a hoax. The man who said it only caused mild flu-like symptoms. The man who laughed at Joe Biden for wearing the biggest masks he’d ever seen. Unfortunately, I cannot bring myself to wish this man well.
Also to Colin Creasey: Glad you’re back with your intellectual observations! Could not agree more.
And to Willem VanDam: what so you have to say about Mr. Trump and his tax evasion? Most of us grumble and pay up, but for the better good I believe. I believe everyone should have “basic income” in the least.
