Readers Write: Achieving critical mass against Trump

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity Robert J. Hanlon

“Why,” I ask myself, “write another letter critical of Donald Trump?”

I am, of course, familiar with the notion that it is best to ignore his rants, but my thinking differs.

I want all progressives to “blast away with all barrels” until a critical mass has been reached.

Then, except for his most diehard supporters, he will be without allies and either resign or be impeached.

When McConnell and Ryan turn against him, his days will be numbered. Those who fear for our democracy must not let up on their incessant verbal bombardment . So, on to the article.

Few would deny that Trump is a misogynist. We are all familiar with his anti-women rhetoric. Here is a compilation of classic Trumpian scatology, courtesy of N.O.W., the National Organization of Women.

“I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter perhaps I’d be dating her.”

“[on women] You have to treat ’em like s***.”

“My fingers on long and beautiful as [are] various other parts of my body.”

“And when you’re a star, they let you do it. Grab them by the p***y.”

“If Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband, what makes her think she can satisfy America?”

:…it doesn’t really matter what [the media] write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of a**.”

“26,000 unreported sexual assaults in the military… what did those geniuses expect when they put men and women together?”

Many of us curse, but Trump explained his remarks calling them “locker room talk.” I couldn’t help but wonder how I would handle it if one of my college students spoke like that. Trump’s behavior bespeaks a character disorder and is not what one expects of a president.

As George Orwell wrote: “The most important thing is to see what is obvious.” In this case it’s that Donald Trump is unfit to be president.
