Trumpís actions speak louder than his words
(Editorial ~ 09/05/18)
Iíve tried to avoid writing this column for quite some time. But I have to be honest. I cringed while watching President Trumpís political rally in West Virginia last week. And this is far from the first time I have found myself bewildered by the ramblings of this President. As a self-confessed supporter of this administration, my cringe-worthy moment was surely shared by others. In so many ways, Donald Trump remains a tone deaf businessman with zero speaking skills. He clearly lacks the speaking polish of Barack Obama or the gifted sense of humor of Ronald Reagan. His ego often runs on steroids and his nonstop battle with the media ó though accurate ó is wearing thin. Like in West Virginia last week, his off-script recitation of his historic 2016 Presidential election makes him look arrogant as he continues to thumb his nose at the Democrats. All too often, especially on the heels of Obamaís fiery rhetoric, Trump sounds like a loud-mouthed half-sotted uncle.

I donít know who wrote in badmouthing about President Trump but apparently they arenít watching the news seeing all the corruption the Democrats are involved in. The Democrat Party is nothing but a bunch of corrupt people. And thank God that we donít have to listen to Hillary Clinton. And thank God our little girls donít have to worry about some transexual male who thinks heís a girl that day come in while my little daughter is in the bathroom. Thank God for President Trump.
