‘No politi­cian in his­tory …’

The Globe and Mail (Alberta Edition) - - GLOBE FOCUS -

“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
