Letter: Comments reveal Collins’ arrogance

Comments reveal Collins’ arrogance

Here is just a sample of the helpful advice ethically challenged Rep. Chris Collins provides for his constituents:

“Who cares?” – his initial tip to the 73 percent of Americans who asked how to get Trump’s taxes released, which has recently morphed into “I don’t think any elected official should.”

“Get a backbone” – his advice for GOP critics of the president.

“Get a life” – his advice to those who question the ethics of the president’s counselor after she publicly promoted Ivanka Trump’s clothing line.

“Move on” – his tip to concerned Americans questioning the allegations against Gen. Michael Flynn.

“Don’t dwell on the past” – his advice when Americans ask for an investigation into the administration’s contacts with Russia.

“It’s Valentine’s Day and I guess they’re having breakfast with their wives” – his tip to explain the GOP’s silence on the Flynn scandal.

“Do you know how many millionaires I’ve made in Buffalo in the last month?” – a tip not shared with his constituents.

But maybe he’ll give us all a helpful stock tip at his next town hall meeting.

“I never will have a town hall” – a tip for us that illustrates how committed he is to his constituents.
