‘Trump is a dangerous, destructive madman who can’t see or act beyond his own narcissism’

WESTMINSTER WEST — Many wise and resonant words have been written in The Commons regarding the current state of politics. In my view, Mr. Cloutier's letter is not included in that category and epitomizes the toxic soup that dominates the Republican Party of the early 21st century. The ingredients are explosive, and it's a recipe for disaster.

For those who claim to support Donald Trump's policies without supporting the man, I ask once again: Isn't condoning the man, or looking the other way when he constantly exhibits his utterly immoral behavior, the moral equivalent of supporting him and all that he represents?

Mr. Cloutier brings to mind the common Republican trope of reverence for Trump, like he's some god who will bring the United States of America back to her glory days (i.e., 1950s-style racism and misogyny, among other aggressions and wrongs).

In truth, Trump is a dangerous, destructive madman who can't see or act beyond his own narcissism. The sheer party-above-all and delusional vision of Trump's supporters lead me to conclude that the United States is suffering from a widespread lead contamination from sea to shining sea and in every other waterway in-between.

At the age of 32, Heather Heyer was slain by a self-professed neo-Nazi at the August 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va. I wonder if any Trumper would have the guts to ask Heather's mother what she thinks of Trump and his minions.

I seriously doubt if she would include them in the group of “very good people.”

Would you?
