John Amato has written many wonderful letters, and most of them have been right on track. But last week he went off the rails by endorsing Donald Trump.
But maybe I'm wrong? Yes, Trump has insulted the parents of fallen Captain Humayun Khan. Yes, he received numerous military deferments due to a bone spur on his heel, but he doesn't know which heel. Yes, he's called Mexicans rapists. Yes, he's called women pigs.
Yes, he's called Vladimir Putin a friend. Yes, he celebrated the devastation suffered by millions of Americans during the economic collapse because he turned a profit. Yes, he encouraged Russia to hack into United States security.
Yes, he claims to be a business genius despite filing for bankruptcy six times and screwing his creditors. Yes, he called war hero John McCain a loser. Yes, he says we have to stop shipping jobs overseas, while he continues to have all his products made overseas.
Yes, he spearheaded the "birther" movement against President Barack Obama. Yes, he fleeced the students of Trump "University." Yes, he's been endorsed by David Duke and the KKK. And Yes, he made fun of a reporter with disabilities.
Yes, all that is true, but Hillary Clinton used the wrong E-mail server.
