Letter to the editor: Pigs are better people than one of our former leaders

In his Nov. 10 editorial, Independent publisher Angelo Lynn alludes plainly that, among other things, former President Trump is someone who has had “multiple sexual affairs” and is “a sexist, homophobic, racist, white supremist pig.”

Pigs mate for life. They are among the most intelligent creatures that share the planet with us. I have never met a pig that is sexist, or racist, or homophobic. To equate Mr. Trump to a pig is a dire insult to pigs. Mr. Lynn owes a full-throated apology to all pigs everywhere.

Respectfully submitted,

Walter Stugis
