LETTERS: Last POTUS a class act

I just watched “Good Morning Vietnam,” and it dawned on me why the real fake social media has so many glued to its altered and dissected news. Like the soldier twins in the movie, it only show sand tells what is good for sensitive ears. Isn’t it any wonder why people only want to see and hear what is good for their listening pleasure.

The propaganda machines have convinced and programmed many that what’s good for the people is Socialism, very bad, but Socialism for the wealthy, very good. Some of our biggest Republican Socialists are the biggest complainers of Socialism. Go figure.

Boy, all these people that cry and scream that

the current POTUS is not well liked by many is considered Un-American. Were these people just born yesterday? Our last POTUS was obstructed and sabotaged at everything he brought to the table, regardless if it was good for country. GOP stated from his first day in office they were going to do everything in their power to make his administration fail. They did such a good job of it that they earned the nickname “Dysfunctional Congress” with the lowest ratings ever.

The real fake news channel kept their listeners well informed that a black man that rescued the country from one of the worst recessions had no business leading our country and didn’t accomplish anything. He only had a booming economy, saved the automobile industry, broke unemployment records every year, tripled stock market and

had no help whatsoever from the GOP. The rewards he, wife and children received were slammed with vulgarity and obscenities never heard before. It makes you wonder how racism got started and how Trump exploited it with the blessing of his supporters.

He and his wife were a class act. He was never convicted of any crimes. He never cheated on his only wife, no porn star affairs, no bankruptcies, didn’t lose more than a billion dollars, paid taxes, but I guess being black was his downfall. We now have the complete opposite and the real fake social media channel is cheering and bragging that our current POTUS is an ideal Christian leading man. Give me a break. Have a good day.
