Tuesday letters: Trump’s lies, Trump’s re-election

Post Independent Letters to the editor graphic


After 16,241 lies spewed by the current president of the U.S., according to Joy Bayhar on “The View,” Jan. 27, 2020, I’m still in shock that President Trump can be excused and free to lie some more and invite Russia or whoever he wants, to interfere in our election this year. You bet I’m angry and frustrated at the Senate of the United States. What just happened in the Senate was a “Senate gathering,” not a Senate trial, as there were no witnesses or documents to verify all the wrong doings and lies of this president. This was a sham trial and tragedy for American Democracy.

The House of Representatives is called the people’s house for a reason. They represent the people of the United States. The people wanted witnesses and documents, according to the poles, by 75%, which was ignored by the Republicans. 

Trump will be remembered as the most corrupt president in American history. History will not look kindly on the senators. Their obituary will read “spineless,” and they will be stuck with this vote forever. People will remember the hypocrisy of these senators and all the negative comments they made about this president when they were running for the office a few years ago. 

The truth will continue to drip out each day. Trump’s tax returns and financial dealings are under investigation for several years now, as well as the abuses to the emoluments clause. 

We are now living under a king (monarchy) and have lost our democracy. I pray we can get it back with the election in November. I believe America will come to its senses and will want to uphold the Constitution and principles of democracy that our country was founded upon. 

God help us, and God bless America.

Stock up on Kleenex

The Mueller investigation and sham impeachment were three years of slander, lies and hypocrisy. Our media reads like Pravda in lock step with the Democrats. A pathetic slate of candidates is promoting a communist agenda (communist-socialist, what’s the difference?).

That’s why us deplorable, smelly Walmart shoppers are going to give President Trump four more years.

Stock up on Kleenex, snowflakes.
