Letter: Ginsburg sent a warning for the sake of country

Ginsburg sent a warning for the sake of country

Perhaps Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s remarks about the disastrous effects of a Trump presidency on the nation and the Supreme Court were a risk she knowingly made for the good of the country. I suggest her remarks are a wakeup call to those who may support a Trump presidency without paying close attention to his character defects.

I recently mentioned to a friend a list of the bizarre statements and contradictory behaviors that Trump exhibits and a certain portion of the population seems to relish. His response led me to believe that he has not been paying attention to the cataloging of Trump’s non-negotiable behaviors that contradict the sanity it takes to be president of the United States.

Such things as taking three Republican congressmen to task for not supporting his candidacy and vowing to help them not be re-elected, when in fact, two of them were not even running for re-election. Remarks made by the president of Mexico at the recent summit with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada and President Obama indicating that he still compares Trump to Hitler and Mussolini.

If other nations fear a Trump presidency, we should be aghast and heed Ginsburg’s warning.
