Don’t com­pare Trump, DUI teen

The Denver Post - - NEWS - Re: Jerry Witt,

“Trump is the Af­fluenza can­di­date,” Jan. 2 Ruth Mar­cus col­umn.

Ruth Mar­cus’ col­umn is a fool­ish at­tempt at be­mus­ing po­lit­i­cal anal­y­sis. She takes half the col­umn to ex­plain the Af­fluenza de­fense of Texas DUI teenager Ethan Couch. Her boor­ish com­men­tary in ex­plain­ing par­al­lels be­tween Couch (a teenager con­victed of a crime) and Don­ald Trump (a suc­cess­ful adult businessman run­ning for pres­i­dent of the U.S.) is in­sult­ing and of­fen­sive, es­pe­cially to the fam­i­lies and loved ones of the vic­tims in­volved.
