Hi John, I’m not Allan Ishac but I’ll send him your sentiments. Trump hasn’t earned our respect and does something almost every day to prove HE disrespects the Office of the President.

Who can’t help but tell a stupid little lie about working and then plays golf (yesterday)? On a much grander scale, who lies into the camera for an adoring base about how his tax plan is hurting him, and then reaps millions in the windfall enjoyed by the mega rich? As you recommend, I’m not just writing, I am working for his impeachment because he’s taking advantage of his office to enrich himself, his family , and his friends— among other egregious acts. If you don’t see these things, John, you’re not paying attention or you’re choosing to ignore the obvious.

I don’t expect your mind can be be changed, but if you haven’t done so, look at Trump’s business history and you’ll see many well-planned and executed frauds that he’s only survived by settling — often for millions of dollars while still extracting his profit. The most recent of these was Trump University. If you think this serial fraudster (whose victims have been America’s middle class) will change at 70 years old (especially with the power he now has), you’re not being honest with yourself.

Lastly, I’m always ready for intelligent discourse on this topic, which can only be had without the name-calling that Trump is also famous for — but his wasn’t satirical. It was and is mean-spirited, demeaning and disrespectful of all who don’t grovel at his feet (including members of his own Cabinet and Republican legislative leaders). If this is the kind of “leader” you would aspire to be, I respectfully hope you are never in that position. If this is not the kind of “leader” you would aspire to be, then how can you in good conscience follow him? Just food for thought, John.
