Letter to the editor: Evidence of Trump’s incompetence builds

Those who identify with a Trumpian world should possess sufficient awareness to recognize a problem. How much more evidence will it take? An imbecile-in-chief could be survived were he elected Scout Master of the local troop. Scout Masters, of course, generally possess a moral compass and do not have access to nuclear codes.
Referring to missiles, which are not to be confused with foreign aid, the President said in less than 140 characters, “Get ready Russia, because they will be coming, nice and new and smart.” Who in their “right mind” talks like that, even on the playground? As my five-year-old neighbor observed, “What’s wrong with the President?”
 Perhaps, in our partisanship we refuse to acknowledge the undoing of a country and planet. Congress takes no responsibility for any of this. The citizens remain disbelieving and disengaged, if not powerless. Nero, detached from right and wrong, dependent on flattery, behaved in a similar fashion. It didn’t work out well for him, or the Empire. And all he had was a violin and a match.
