A per­plexed po­lit­i­cal per­sua­sion

Porterville Recorder - - OPINION -

Ed­i­tor, You re­vealed the po­si­tion of the news­pa­per shortly af­ter your takeover ear­lier this year. For that rea­son, I have been re­luc­tant to tell you of an­other po­lit­i­cal po­si­tion awake in our coun­try.

The pres­i­dent’s ap­pear­ance be­fore all na­tions of the world makes it pos­si­ble to write you a let­ter telling you how those of this coun­try with a dif­fer­ent po­lit­i­cal per­sua­sion feel. I am sure the ‘de­plorables’ all across the na­tion stopped to lis­ten to their leader make his mem­o­rable speech to the lead­ers of the world.

When the pres­i­dent fin­ished his line, “In less than two years, my ad­min­is­tra­tion has ac­com­plished more than al­most any ad­min­is­tra­tion in the his­tory of our coun­try,” he paused and waited for the huge ap­plause he ex­pected. What he got was moans of laugh­ter from the na­tions of the world.

It was a first for an Amer­i­can pres­i­dent. It is the first time we Amer­i­cans have been laughed at in pub­lic by the whole world. He ob­jected to a foot­ball player kneel­ing in­stead of salut­ing the flag. Then he took our beau­ti­ful flag over­seas and wrapped it with the dirty, bloody rag of North Korea. Maybe he thought he could hide the blood of all the Marines who were killed in North Korea. He could not and he did not. They are still mur­der­ers and a threat to all of us.

Next, he took our flag to Helsinki to meet his busi­ness part­ners from Rus­sia, where he spread our honor and the flag on the floor for Putin to step on. Then he sug­gested we turn over our FBI in­for­ma­tion to the Rus­sians in a fee­ble at­tempt to be friendly.

No, we who are not de­plorables do not want him to fin­ish this term and I am glad that I will still have the right to vote in the Novem­ber elec­tion.
