Letter: Caterpillar analogy disrespectful to president


If I had been stung by a black wooly caterpillar during the Obama administration, would you have made the top headline on your front page, “It Looked Like Barack Obama’s Hair”?

I didn’t think so. You would have had enough respect for our President, or for the office of the President, to blue line edit that headline.

Please try to show your respect (at the very least) for the office of the President during this administration, as well.

Respect is earned, I was taught long ago, when "respect" had meaning.

trump must first show his respect for the majority of electorate who did not vote for him, first, then, trump must himself show respect for the office he fell into.

That the minority were able to manipulate the system to elect a boorish, ignorant, egomaniacal, petulant, fat slob-- their political mirror image-- to sit vacuously in the Oval office in no way requires automatic respect for a man who shows none.

It is absolutely hysterical and massively hypocritical for anyone to now, after 8 years of Obama bashing and constant insults and attacks from republicans, to read even a hint that trump should be automatically shown respect just because he wakes in the morning.
