Letter: Administration spouts lies, nonsense; vote in November

Editor,

“Truth isn’t truth.” Come on, Giuliani, what kind of baloney is that? From Giuliani to Conway to Trump, who said, “What you are seeing and reading is not the truth.”

We are being bombarded with nonsense and “alternative facts,” i.e lies.

The American people are not stupid. We have been listening and know when we are being snowed.

These staff people will try anything to veer away from the real truth and what they are up to. Trump and his bunch are in so deep, they will try anything to confuse us. This is a criminal White House and the sooner Congress gets on with its job, the better.

But sadly, we might have to wait until after the mid-terms when some seats turn over and Congress gets a backbone with new members to stand up to Trump and his tweets. His continual spewing of lies and hate leads me to believe that working in the White House must be an awful experience now.

His calling the media “fake news” is rubbish; they are our lifeline to the truth.

The press agenda to getting out what is said and by whom keeps us informed. We must be on guard as to our own First Amendment rights.

Trump would take them away, as he has taken John Brennan’s security clearance away for political reasons and would arrest Omorosa Manigault-Newman for writing a book critical of him, if possible.

Trump’s dictatorial tendencies are scary; we must not take them lightly. This is why he wants Brett Kavanaugh on the Supreme Court, so he will not be criticized or checked in any way.

This would not be a wise move, but the GOP leadership is pushing it — Why? History will surely deem them in cahoots with this administration.

Again, it comes down to November and the mid-terms, more critical than ever.

Please vote.
