Letter: Why are Republicans still supporting Trump?

First Published      Last Updated Jun 16 2017 05:59 am

Can one of you Republicans out there explain to me why you are lining up behind the grotesque buffoon that we put in the White House?

Mitt Romney's Deer Valley powwow was yet another knife in the heart of public truth-telling. We know that Romney knows that Trump is a "fraud" and "phoney." Why the about-face?

It's pretty easy to make the case that Trump is guilty of obstruction of justice. Why aren't you guys going after him? We would have Mike Pence — a kind of anti-choice Gerald Ford. I don't care for him, but we would likely make it through the next four years without losing our hard-won and well-deserved position as leader of the western world.
