To the Editor:
Mr. Walton, your letter to the Journal, "Is it bullying, or a GOP movement" nearly turned my stomach.
You and I must live in different universes. The hyper nationalistic nonsense you espouse in your letter supporting Trump’s MAGA Movement makes you and others like you sound like a bunch of boy scouts pretending to be real soldiers. Get over it. Trump lost in a fair election, as validated by his own justice department, dozens of court cases and the state officials responsible for overseeing the election.
You talk of Mr. Leppert’s whining in his op/ed, all the while supporting a man who failed to get reelected and has been whining about it ever since. In fact, he started whining even before the election was held. The man is a loser in every sense of the word, and while people on the fringe right like you will continue supporting him, he will never again be elected to a position of power.
As for Trump being a bully, the facts speak for themselves. He has used his power to savage everyone who ever disagreed with him, including his own friends. The dictionary defines a bully as a person who hurts, frightens or tyrannizes over those who are smaller or weaker. The congressional Republican cowards who rush to kiss Trump’s feet do so out of fear for their careers and loss of power. Most of them despise him as much as the rest of us.
One characteristic of a bully stands out in clear definition: cowardice. Trump is a true coward, a person without the backbone to stand up and take his defeat like a man, instead of constantly sniveling about how the election was stolen from him.
