Editor, 

Since I’ve been in politics since I joined Young Americans for Freedom at 18 and I’ve even attended Ronald Reagan’s Inaugural Ball in 1984, I am pretty sure I’ve earned the right to say what I have to say. I have never seen a purely medical issue such as COVID being so shamelessly politicized, exploited and manipulated by certain third rate politicians who’re spreading disinformation and panic while openly ignoring their own rules and protocol knowing darn well that nobody is gonna call them out on it.

Well, since I was 18 I had to dress a certain way (pearls and argyle sweaters), talk a certain way, present myself a certain way. And we — the up and coming young Republicans and Democrats — had to do those things because we were the future leaders. How do you expect ordinary people to take the COVID crisis, the masks and the vaccinations seriously when our so called leaders are behaving like clowns in a second-rate circus?

“…. knowing darn well that nobody is gonna call them out on it…”

That statement says it all…and references and old, old adage : “The king has no clothes”

Used to be able to have a discussion with conservatives on pretty much anything and at the end of each ‘discussion’…we were able to continue to be friendly or even friends…

Not in todays climate and IMHO, because tRUMP can only exist in a climate of HATE.

For without an enemy to HATE, tRUMP has nothing much to say…well must take a tiny bit of that back…tRUMP will go on and on about himself or his love affaires with world dictators

Since Democrats are the ones who created the climate of hate, especially hatred of Trump, sounds like we know who the ones unable to have discussions are. But look at the bright side, treasonous Biden’s actions are changing the climate of hate to a climate of incompetence and global embarrassment. Happy to have that “discussion” as long as you want.
