I can answer Bill Faw’s question about President Trump’s statement of loyalty. (“Question for Trump Voters,” Oct. 23). In a word — metaphor. Only a blubbering idiot would believe that if he murdered someone he would go free. If he did so he would go to jail and/or be executed. He knows this. We deplorables know it. Only fools don’t.
Hillary called us deplorable. Then she went on to state a very real fact. She was absolutely right about people being let down by government, lousy economy, and desperate for change. She said, “Those are people we have to understand and empathize with.” And so we did not vote for her. We knew she did not plan do any of that.
President Donald Trump is a loud, brash braggart with an enormous ego. He has a big no-filter problem, thinks out loud, and is somewhat childish in dealing with people who insult him. What he is not is corrupt, afraid, stupid, or a hypocrite. Whole bunch of people put their faith in him and will continue to do so as long as he delivers — delivers a shaken up swamp, judges that don’t rewrite the Constitution, a border that means something, an environment that allows business to grow and people to have hope for a meaningful life.
We Trump supporters want something and will support him flaws and all to get it. We would also throw him out if he goes off the rails (That’s our definition of off the rails — not yours) and commits crimes beyond what Obama did. We deplorables want to undo the harm that liberalism has done to us. We deplorables want to have the safety of letting our children play outside or walk to school again. We want our children taught to love their country and respect their flag at school again. We want families to stay together — not have laws that incentivize fathers not to be there. We want immigrants to blend into our culture, not the other way around. We want girls to compete in sports against girls — not guys. We want a leader that puts Americans first. We want a leader who fights for us — the deplorables.
Personally, I find it better to have a crude president than a socialist, a liberal or a crook like Hillary. President Trump is doing what he got elected to — and against the most foulest of nastiness from Democrats. And building the wall — at last!
He is now in a fight against corruption and risking his presidency to fight it. We will not desert him. He will not be impeached. Not by crooked politicians. Not for doing what Obama did.
Question for the Bill Faws of the world. Now that the Democratic Party is led by socialists do you plan on continuing to support the end of America? If so, then thank a deplorable for saving your stupid butt. We will not allow you to destroy us too.
