Sub­mis­sive Yanks de­serve Trump

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - - Letters -

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
