Trump ‘fury’ re­marks draw fire

Los Angeles Times - - OPINION -

Re “‘Fire and fury like the world has never seen,’ ’’ Aug. 9, and “Trump’s di­plo­matic gam­bit,” Ed­i­to­rial, Aug. 8

I usu­ally en­joy read­ing my Times with my morn­ing coffee. If I had done that Tues­day, I might have taken some small com­fort from your ed­i­to­rial re­gard­ing the Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion “mut­ing the bel­li­cose

rhetoric” to­ward North Korea and giv­ing diplo­macy a chance.

How­ever, I did not get to my pa­per un­til af­ter­noon. By that time, Trump was all over the air­waves and so­cial me­dia threat­en­ing to rain “fire and fury like the world has never seen” down on North Korea — not for any ac­tion it might take, but for threat­en­ing some ac­tion.

OK, Repub­li­cans, it’s time to look into the faces of your chil­dren and grand­chil­dren. Then call your Repub­li­can rep­re­sen­ta­tives and sen­a­tors. They are the only ones who can start im­peach­ment pro­ceed­ings and get this mad­man out of the White House.

If you don’t have the guts to do that, then go back to your chil­dren and ex­plain to them what “fire and fury” means. Lau­rie Ja­cobs
