Letter to the Editor for Jan. 4, 2017

To the Editor:

Maybe Hillary's comments about the lower half of Liar Trump's supporters was correct, but then maybe she should have included all of his supporters. We can't call him president as of yet, but I don't think we should refer to him as Mr. Trump either - his behavior is more like that of a spoiled child. We should all just refer to him as Liar Trump.

I understand the desire to take much of the control of our government away from the 1 percent, but did his supporters really think that a big-business person like Liar Trump would do that? He apparently intends to keep all of his business holdings under his family's control (a conflict of interest). His cabinet appointees are all pro-business, pro-oil, pro-military, anti-environment, etc.

It is obvious, you can't believe a word he says. Maybe the supporters of Liar Trump should admit they have been bamboozled.

I would like to add that Ann Leonard's letter relative to the Electoral College was right on. I can only say that the very idea of swing states is far from democratic and downright ridiculous! If we went by the popular vote, there would be no Swing States. Everyone's vote should count!
