Colum­nist got it right: Trump an­noy­ing, but achiev­ing

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - EDITORIAL PAGE -

I took the priv­i­lege of read­ing the Mark Davis col­umn (July 7). What a de­light to read some­thing so well done and so cor­rect. He said ex­actly what my hus­band and I say ev­ery­day about Trump. Of course, Trump ir­ri­tates most of us on a daily ba­sis with his con­stant tweet­ing. And yes, he acts like a spoiled brat from time to time. But you don’t change a 70-year-old just be­cause he an­noys you. What we should all be do­ing is prais­ing our pres­i­dent for all the pos­i­tive things he has done, tried to do and will con­tinue to do. He has ac­com­plished so much in such a short time, while hav­ing to de­fend him­self against the main­stream me­dia and the lib­er­als who can’t ac­cept his elec­tion vic­tory.

He has been called ev­ery name in the book, has had some even tell us he is crazy and un­fit, yet he con­tin­ues to do what he thinks is best. It is time we all re­al­ize he loves our coun­try and is do­ing what he does mostly out of love for Amer­i­can peo­ple. Is he per­fect? Holy cow, no! But nei­ther are his crit­ics nor any of us. He has shown more times than not how much he cares for his chil­dren and how re­silient he is.

It is time for all of us to lis­ten to what Mark Davis has to say about our pres­i­dent and stop this con­stant at­tack­ing. He may go down in his­tory as one of our great­est pres­i­dents. What will the other side have to say then? Cer­tainly Hil­lary Clin­ton would never have come close to hav­ing that honor.

By the way, when I re­fer to main­stream me­dia crit­ics, I do not in­clude the Democrat-Gazette, though some days it seems that way. You’re still among the few of Amer­ica’s fairest news­pa­pers. NITA MCKELVEY Bella Vista
