Letter to the editor: Trump attacks his many critics

When something offensive to the President appears on the news, his reaction is simple. Take the point and turn it around. Make whatever it was apply to the critic. The original point, reportedly “fake,” when redirected, is squarely on target.
Meanwhile, the duck gets used and abused. If it flies like a duck, swims like a duck, appears to be a duck, it is on an evolutionary level clearly a duck. Could be a Mallard or a Loon. But it’s no doubt a duck. Donald defenders are consistently declaring a duck to be more like a turtle with feathers, a turuck. It’s only racist or a duck when they allow it to be.
