Letter: Trump cheated, lied his way to election

Donald Trump’s presidency will not be legitimate because he cheated. He bullied and lied (58 times) his way to the nomination. He is on record as having serially molested women. His blatant racism and bigotry has unleashed unprecedented numbers of hate crimes. He is a foul-mouthed manipulative phony who has a history of fraud, violation of business contracts and a secret income tax history that may well demonstrate not only deep debt to foreign governments, but also the possibility that his debt exceeds his assets.

Add to all that Trump’s ample borrowing from Hitler’s playbook of scapegoating ethnic populations, promoting false allegations against his enemies, nationalizing the press and promising a great future after the devastation of World War II. And now we have growing evidence that the FBI and Russia influenced the election in favor of Trump.

Our friends who resent the persistence of the Democrat complaint, mistaking our deep and painful grief for whining, might consider that their objection arises from a frantic buyer’s remorse and dread of the “birds of a feather” stain that comes with support for Trump.

    Wow. While I did not support our current President I find this brief letter of assumption, and the assumption of the worst by so many people, an impediment to our government. Just because politicians are almost universally thought of as somewhat corrupt does not make it right to make such accusations based on media reporting (also thought of as universally inaccurate and biased). Hopefully this letter is therapeutic for the author.

      I believe it is fair to “assume” that Art Dimauro is sadly accurate in his comments based on several factual accounts. His comments are collaborated widely over last several days..if not weeks from many respected sources. And Mr. Trump’s own words and actions are further proof. No question “time will tell”, but I fear time is not on our side as each day we watch our Constitution get further skewed. In the face of truly awesome and egregious lying, I remain fascinated by the excuses his supporters conjurer.

    If Donald Trump lied, what the heck do you call what Hillary Clinton did?
