In his Sunday diatribe (he would call it a column) Mr. (Larry) Cothren accuses the “left” of undermining democracy by being critical of supreme court nominees, and investigating if the president broke the law. He ignores the true threat this administration and the GOP poses. Let us count the ways. Trying to continue Gerrymandering, suppression of minority voters, trampling on the civil rights of LGBTQ citizens, trying to undermine a free press, suggesting he might stay on after two terms, hiding his taxes and emails, glorifying dictators, and ignoring old allies.

The column says we should give the president more respect. My parents taught me you can only get respect if you respect others. As long as our president gives no respect to others, he deserves none.
