Response to Mr. Herb Panko’s October 17 letter


Mon, Oct 24th, 2016
Posted in All Commentary

By Tommy Thorson

Interesting, Democrats see problems with Republican candidates but not candidates from their own party. Mr. Panko makes several points to prove his claim that Donald Trump should not be our next president. Those arguments could at least be factual;

1. Trump, for five years refused to accept President Obama’s U.S. citizenship. True, but he failed to mention that it was Hillary’s campaign which began this “birther” issue over eight years ago.

2. Mr. Trump insulted Senator John McCain. True.

3. Trump mocked a handicapped reporter. False! (Good talking point, though.)

4. Refused to recognize a federal judge. False. Mr. Trump did insult the judge, but there is information this judge rules, not according to law, but according to his own agenda. Mr. Trump, however, should have said this instead of insulting the judge.

5. “Treats women as sexual objects.” Talk. Unacceptable, disgusting, shameful talk, but no proof he did more than talk. Mr. Trump is unable to prove he did not do these things. His accusers can not prove he did them. Why did they wait 10 or more years to come forward? Why now, just weeks before the election? (There is something in the law about being innocent until proven guilty.) I am pleased, though, the Democratic party is finally defending women, unlike when Bill Clinton was president; he abused 17 women that we know about, 17 women who were then abused again by Hillary and the Democratic party. Hillary now says women should always be believed, but would not believe them when it counted! The women in Bill Clinton’s case came forward immediately. There is proof of President Clinton’s sexual abuse of women; remember Monica Lewinski? Her dress?

Remember Jennifer Flowers? There is more.

6. Trump wants to close borders to all Muslims. (Implying forever.) False. Mr. Trump said we should close all boarders to all Muslims, UNTIL. Later he modified that.

7. True.

8. True. However, the family did insult him first. Though that does not excuse Mr. Trump’s retaliation, we should be given all of the facts.

9. Let us keep facts in proper context. Mr. Trump did not say he prefers communism. He said he respects effective leaders and Mr. Putin is an effective leader. 10. True, I think. So what? If the Democrats can not protect their own emails, can we trust them to pro .....
