The facts don’t favour Trump

RE: Give Trump a chance, says An­caster sup­porter (Jan. 25)

First, con­grat­u­la­tions to Mr. Ma­honey for do­ing an in­ter­view that he had so many mixed feel­ings about. We all have the right to our own opin­ions and the right to voice them.

I would just like to give my two cents worth. First, Jan Gallo’s com­ment that some­one should take away Trump’s de­vices at 11 p.m. An ex­cel­lent sug­ges­tion that should be acted on. His con­stant non­sen­si­cal tweets show a to­tal lack of im­pulse con­trol. This is the be­hav­iour of chil­dren and teens whose brains have not de­vel­oped. And this per­son is in a po­si­tion of high power? Yikes!

Se­cond, the al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual as­sault are ig­nored. Does anyone se­ri­ously think that all the women who told their sto­ries of their per­sonal run ins with Trump are liars? At the very least, he is guilty of in­cred­i­bly poor judg­ment, and at the worst crim­i­nal be­hav­iour. His re­sponse to the al­le­ga­tions are to mock the woman who spoke up and com­ment “have you looked at her? I don’t think so!”. Dis­gust­ing.

He also mocked a reporter’s phys­i­cal dis­abil­ity on live TV. Lastly, I ques­tion how fan­tas­tic a businessman he is. How many bank­rupt­cies? How many work­ers who didn’t get paid?

So Mr. Gallo, I re­spect your right to voice your opin­ion, but I have my own. Sharon McKib­bon, Hamil­ton
