Not running on empty
Much has been said about so-called fake news. I submit that your Jan. 11 op-ed page has an egregious example.
The editorial cartoon by Clay Bennett of the Chattanooga Times-Free Press depicts an image similar to a gasoline gauge in our cars, with the drawing of Donald Trump’s head and brain and showing the gauge pointing to empty. Of course, the cartoon is the drawer’s opinion, but I believe it is so totally bogus as to fall into the category of “fake news.”
Whatever one may think of this man, I believe stupid is not the conclusion any free thinker would come to. He took on 16 experienced politicians in his own party and beat them all without a thread of political experience. He then won the presidency handily in opposition to the ultimate politician of our times, Hillary Clinton. In the process, a political neophyte, he destroyed the Bush and Clinton dynasties.
Only time will tell how his presidency will go, but I believe to depict him as “empty” of brain capacity is pure hate speech from the far-left radical fringe, a place inhabited by Mr. Bennett and his like.
