Letter: Trump’s actions prove he is not fit to lead nation

There are facts that support the conclusion that President Donald Trump is a racist, misogynist, bully, cheat, liar, womanizer, theft, uncivil, ignorant.

He has not demonstrated an understanding of the various alliances the United States of America has formed since World War II.

Nor does he grasp the complexities of the Middle East geopolitical struggles.

He refuses the truth of Russia’s adversarial status to democracy and the United States and its meddling in the 2016 election.

His vocabulary is juvenile with repetitive phrases that confuse or distract rather than clarify meaning.

He has insulted John McCain, Elizabeth Warren, Maxine Waters, Paul Ryan (if he is paying attention), Mitch McConnell, Michael Cohen, Chris Christie, women, his political base (“I like people who are not smart”), the FBI, the CIA, the Republican Party (are you watching, listening), the NFL (specifically, black players), Angela Merkel of Germany, and the Group of 7, our democratic allies, the Fourth Estate, Puerto Rico, Native Americans, and the U.S. Constitution (Emoluments Clause, etc.).

How does one participate in his administration and not become compliant, or an enabler, or an accessory to these wrongs?

Judge Neil Gorsuch, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the Republican members of the House and Senate of the Unites States?

How do you hug a pig and not get dirty?

How do you support the man committing these acts and not the acts, Mike Pence?

Where is the integrity? Truth?
