Hex on Trump: what­ever works

Los Angeles Times - - OPINION -

Re “Ho­cus PO­TUS,” Let­ters, May 27

I chuck­led at the fear ex­pressed by some ob­vi­ously con­ser­va­tive read­ers at the pos­si­bil­ity of Pres­i­dent Trump be­ing thwarted by a spell.

I’m with op-ed ar­ti­cle writer Diana Wag­man: As a cit­i­zen con­cerned with the im­mi­nent end of our free so­ci­ety, I’ll take all the help we can get to end Trump’s “reign.” I ap­pre­ci­ated her rel­a­tively be­nign view of caus­ing him to po­lit­i­cally self-de­struct. This stands in con­trast to the much more vi­o­lent en­ergy suc­cess­fully stoked by Trump and oth­ers in the elec­tion.

And, while I’m dis­cussing the Satur­day let­ters, in­clud­ing those on the body-slammed re­porter, I no­ticed that Mon­tana has very lax gun laws, es­pe­cially re­gard­ing con­cealed carry. I won­der what the Repub­li­can re­sponse would’ve been if Rep.-elect Greg Gian­forte’s ag­gres­sion against an ob­vi­ously over­matched re­porter had got­ten him shot.
