Trump’s agenda: Warning: Letter contains sarcasm

I join in with the ad hominem attacks on Donald Trump. He is from Queens and, even worse, a businessman. He is not to be trusted. Only lawyers turned politicians are trustworthy.

What right has he to be president? And his ridiculous mantra, “Make America Great Again,” is a farce. An unbiased assessment of our civilization gives direct evidence that this country will never be great again. A country which is devoted to selfish inclination is not great. When Trump was president, things were a little better economically. But an economically healthy middle class is not on the liberal agenda. As for me. As long as I can take trips to Cabo and remain free to purchase potent marijuana, why should I complain?

However, I have one question: Why did it take three hours for the National Guard to be called when our bastion of freedom was being assaulted on Jan. 6, 2021? Did anyone in the U.S. Capitol rotunda have a cell phone? Some of them said they felt threatened. To think that my dope-smoking days might have been jeopardized is indeed unnerving.
