​Copy of a comment I made on Facebook​:

With all due respect, I don't understand your absolute hatred of Trump. Not even close. I have mixed feelings about Trump as a person, although I feel somewhat favorable about him, but I voted for his agenda, not his personality. I actually think that Trump is trying to do the right thing, as he sees it, which overlaps some, but not all, of my views.

I think that this is barking up the wrong tree. You're not getting rid of Trump, because Trump did not collude with the Russians, and there is no evidence he ever did, and even if you could prove that he did, it is not illegal. However, if you did get rid of Trump, then you are not accomplishing anything, because you are going to have Mike Pence as president. If you could get rid of Mike Pence, which would make me sad because I think Pence is truly a great guy, then you would have Paul Ryan as president. By some miracle if you got rid of Paul Ryan then you would have Orrin Hatch as president, which I only mention because for me that would be the least desirable outcome.

BTW, Pence and I graduated from the same high school. I could be almost as happy with Pence as President, but I think that Trump will actually accomplish more.

Best wishes,

​P.S.  The  movie "Take Shelter" is on its way from Netflix.​  I'm looking forward to seeing this.
