Letter: President Trump the master baiter


I have to give grudging respect to Donald Trump and his art of the deal. Trump is very good at baiting people into his web.

He’s very good at baiting political opponents into debates they cannot win. He’s very good at baiting his base to chant demeaning and threatening slogans.

Trump is extremely good at baiting people of all stripes into his web and pointless debate. I have to grudgingly admit, Donald Trump is the master baiter.

I give up.

I've resisted the temptation as long as I can.

You clever devils had to suspect that publishing Mr.Cupples’s letter would toss up-- for immature people like me-- the opportunity for double entendre retorts.

We all pull in the same direction, right?

On 2nd thought, I won't come back with puerile replies giving Dave a hand with his “Master-baiter” imagery. Why would I intentionally try to generate hard feelings for some and sticky situations for others.

I am not a selfish, self-gratifying person.

One must admit, though, trump’s insults attempt to beat off many of his critics. We all hear trump constantly brag about how proud he would be to knock one particular media jerk off the podium if he tried to join him: Poor Jim Acosta.

CNN"S targeted reporter is most likely left lonely and at home, quietly strumming his guitar wires, solo.

But, Life, is often unfair. As we all know, chickens sometimes accidentally get choked and misbehaving monkeys sometimes get spanked.

This sort of stuff makes one wish he were great at merely putting worms on hooks.

Apologies in advance.
