Letter: Trump the polar opposite of President Obama


On January 20th we’ll be saying goodbye to the Obamas. We’ll say goodbye to eloquence, class, integrity and intelligence. Whether or not you agree with President Obama’s politics you cannot question his compassion, hope for our future generations and his desire to do what he thought was best for our country.

Trump is the polar opposite of President Obama. For those of us who have been around long enough to follow Trump’s career know that he’s never done anything unless he personally benefited from it.

Trump’s low approval rating ever since he was given the presidency is continuing to decline. More and more people are beginning to realize what he’s actually all about.

For those who have traveled outside of the U.S. know that all these people, except of course for Putin, think we’re out of our minds for having a person like Trump be in charge of our country. Our respect has certainly taken a huge hit. Friday afternoon will be an embarrassing moment in the history of our country and an insult to every intelligent American.

National boycott Friday January 20. Stay home from work/ school if you can. Spend no money on anything if you can possibly help it. One thing absolutely everyone can certainly do- don't tune in to watch the inauguration. Yes, I know- my poor little efforts won't make a bit of difference to the Orange Menace. But they will make a great difference to me. And that is enough.

Women's March Saturday January 21. This is actually for everyone, men included. Most of us can't get to DC for this. But there are local marches all over the nation. Here in our area it's in Sedona. 1 pm from Birch street to the first stoplight.

I certainly won't watch the inauguration. I won't be a witness to a person I neither trust nor respect!

It's simple minded fools who presume to speak for "every intelligent American". You three sound like unhappy tweeners kibitzing over a boy who frowned at you.

I have always only spoken for myself. These others speak for themselves. We may speak to others, without presuming to speak for them. As for "unhappy tweeners", your own Tweeter-In-Chief sets the very pattern. A more petulant schoolyard bully never existed.
