No moral equivalency between Clinton, Trump
Columnist John Kass’ commentary on the Clinton Foundation was a shameful piece of journalism that hardly deserved to be published in a respectable newspaper (“How are people missing the Clinton Foundation’s stench of corruption?” Sept. 2).
It is full of baseless innuendo and accusations without a shred of fact to back up its insinuations. I cannot understand why you published it unless it is part of an inept and misguided effort to prove that The Sun and its parent company are even-handed in their coverage of the presidential campaigns.
But there is no equivalency in this election, and the two candidates cannot be treated in a balanced manner.
Donald Trump, as Mr. Kass readily concedes, is a narcissistic, self-promoting megalomaniac totally unfit to be president. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has devoted her career to public service and to improving the condition of the American public.
Undoubtedly she has solicited funds for the Clinton Foundation, a superb charity that has saved thousands of lives in impoverished and destitute countries. I give her credit for this noble effort.
If I contribute to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, another wonderful charity similar to the Clinton Foundation, will you accuse me of attempting to influence Microsoft? How ridiculous!
