The great thing about being in the newspaper business was all the great people I met. Mary Beth — who wrote this reply to “Trump disappoints me…” was an outstanding reporter, the kind that knew everyone in power, was constantly among them, gathering up everything being said and whispered — but never forgot her job was to give the people, answers about what the government was planning, what the rich were plundering, what corruption the politicians had invented and what crazy laws the crazy people that surround the rich and powerful — were asking for.
Here is her reply:
Trump is an egomaniac who is not a Washington bureaucratic politician, but rather a break-the-rules businessman. He will never fit the mold of a civil president yet his ideas and policies seem to be helping America in a time of escalating socialism precipitated by years of un-thoughtful liberalism.
Such ideas of not trying to provide for oneself by saving for retirement, paying your own way even in areas of health care, and being responsible for such, not depending on the government to do it for you, is not being taught to our youth.
Just saving is not being taught! Stressing you do not have enough to save is the focus, when we should teach anyone to save one dollar if that is all they have.
I think Trump wanted to send a message to youth who might be persuaded to join the ISIS movement that this man was a coward, not to be followed.
Who brings three children with him to be killed?
The manner in which Trump speaks is bullish, crude and uncivil. The manner in which Trump is treated for doing such is either appalled or applauded.
Away from the beltway here in the south, it was applauded.
By New Yorkers, not just southerners, I will add.
You see Trump signs all over the east coast but at least an hour from the beltway, too.
