‘No politician in history …’
“No politician in history … has been treated worse or more unfairly,” exclaims Donald Trump (Former FBI Director Named To Investigate Links Between Trump, Russia, May 18).
Since history, for Mr. Trump, begins with his birth in 1946, the claim does indeed rule out many politicians. Most, in fact. But can there be anything more pathetic than the petulant mewling of the schoolyard bully, when finally caught by the principal?
Or, in this case, principles. – Richard Griffith, Ravenna, Ont.
“No politician in history”? Funny, I didn’t have to look back any further in history than last year to find one. I’d say his attacks on Hillary Clinton qualify. They were bigly worse. And yugely more unfair. – Anne Marie Nguyen, Vancouver
