Letter to the editor: Send message to Trump on Nov. 6

So, here we are. Our president is delusional. Blinded by his personal needs, Donald Trump is unable to see the world for what it is. In his eyes, Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un are reputable leaders because Donald Trump wants them to be despite the reality of Putin’s annexation of Crimea and invasion of Ukraine; and Kim Jong-un ruthless treatment of his own people.
His delusional thinking is dangerous, perhaps treasonous. His failure to criticize Putin for his interference in the 2016 election despite 12 indictments by his own administration is the mark of irrational thinking. His suggestion that the European Union is a foe of the US or that NATO is unimportant shows his inability to view the world as it is — to distinguish between our allies and those who would challenge our liberty and democracy. This president is making America weak by giving up our power and influence to China, Russia, and any country willing to fill the power vacuum that Trump’s irrational actions leave behind.
Yet, Trump’s following remains strong. Why? Perhaps because the most wealthy have received an unprecedented tax break, because the extreme religious right sees a Supreme Court nominee who will support their view on abortion, and because many who have felt disenfranchised feel that they have a seat at the table. Yet, as Woody Allen quipped, he couldn’t tell his father that he was deluded in his thinking that he was a chicken because they needed the eggs. The ends do not justify the means. Making a bargain with the devil may give you what you want in the short run, but it is wrong.
Trump supporters: it is time to abandon this man, to call him out on his dangerous and delusional tweets, and to come to grips with his treasonous behavior. Time to recognize that he is making America weak, while making himself wealthier. It is time to turn off FOX news and their biased support of this president. Time to boycott the companies such as Bayer and Proctor and Gamble that advertise on Fox news. Time to make an ethical stand and call out this confused and dangerous president. Time to rally voters to oppose this president in the congressional midterms. Time to stop colluding with this delusional president.
