Trump the anti-Obama

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor - EU­GENE R. DUNN Med­ford, New York

Don­ald Trump is catch­ing flak from lib­eral me­dia types be­cause he re­cently had the au­dac­ity to ques­tion Pres­i­dent Obama’s han­dling of the Or­lando mas­sacre. Mr. Obama still re­fuses to la­bel that heinous act rad­i­cal Is­lamic ter­ror­ism.

We have a pres­i­dent who on the first day of of­fice said he would lead the “most trans­par­ent ad­min­is­tra­tion” in our na­tion’s his­tory. Yet he has em­ployed ev­ery trick in the book to keep his per­sonal records sealed as if he had some­thing des­per­ate to hide.

We have a pres­i­dent who has looked us right in the eye on dozens of oc­ca­sions over two ma­jor is­sues — health care and the Ira­nian nu­clear treaty — and we later found out that it was all a ruse, and the spin masters were con­temp­tu­ously mock­ing the Amer­i­can peo­ple for buy­ing into it.

We have a pres­i­dent who for the last sev­e­nand-a-half years has made only de­ci­sions that go against the best in­ter­ests of the United States, yet if we dare ques­tion him we’re in­stantly la­beled racists.

Is some­thing go­ing on here, as Mr. Trump hinted? Mr. Obama has been the worst pres­i­dent of all time. And let’s be hon­est — if he were of full Cau­casian heritage, he very likely never would have sur­vived these self-in­flicted scan­dals. He would have been im­peached or at least lost the 2012 elec­tion had the Repub­li­cans had a strong, straight-shoot­ing, Trump-like can­di­date run­ning.

Let’s face it: Mr. Obama is ‘dam­aged goods’ as pres­i­dent. He has long lost the trust of the Amer­i­can peo­ple. In my opin­ion, the FBI, Se­cret Ser­vice and other var­i­ous agen­cies need to be closely watch­ing and mon­i­tor­ing his ev­ery move for the re­main­ing seven months of his term.
