Liberals don’t get it that we’re all fed up

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionRe Jan. 25 letter, “Liberals can’t take Trump’s straight talk”: Kudos to Ray Weidman. He nailed it.CNN is the new Comedy Central. Don Lemon needs a reality check. I watched him once and could not stop laughing. Look at what the left said about President Trump: He’s mentally ill, physically ill, a racist, a tax evader,  he eats too much McDonald’s, on and on. It’s becoming quite humorous. Where’s the mention on these liberal networks about Apple giving $38 billion back to the United States from off-shore earnings? How about the $5 billion going to fund manufacturing in America? Nope, cannot mention that. Obama had the weakest economy in history. We all dodged a bullet that “Satan in a pantsuit” (Mr. Weidman’s words) lost. Liberals just don’t understand we, the people, are fed up.Michael P.
