Submissive Yanks deserve Trump
Sir — The US Senate vote of 50 to 48 does not find Brett Kavanaugh guilty, or innocent, of sexual crimes and, by definition, either fit or unfit to serve on the Supreme Court.
It merely reflects the political state of the parties in the Senate.
This slavish loyalty, to either Republican or Democrat bases, diminishes the value of all the interviews and questionings that have taken place in the last few weeks. To what end was this done if people knew how they would vote anyway? American window dressing!
President Trump is in celebratory mood after his “victory” but, surely, it is not so?
I ask myself, would anyone put themselves through the torment and pain that Christine Blasey Ford has over the past few weeks, if there was no substance to her complaint?
There are no winners here, but many losers, including the ‘Make America Great Again’ battalion. The ‘United States of America’ is a misnomer.
They voted to have Donald Trump as their president and they deserve him and Judge Kavanaugh. Pat Burke Walsh, Ballymoney, Wexford
