Respect not deserved
Regarding Eileen Condie's letter “Respect office, if not man” : We are the examples our children will follow. I don't know about Condie, but I encourage children not to name-call, or to make fun of people with disabilities. How can parents with children honestly tell them to respect and behave like the man who currently occupies the presidency?
President Trump disrespected President Obama for years, when he pushed an unfounded conspiracy theory that the first black president wasn't born in the United States. Where was Condie's outrage then?
Where was her outrage when a man with a reality show and his name on the Hollywood Walk of Fame bragged about sexually assaulting women on an entertainment show ... about Hollywood?
As Condie calls for “celebrities” who disagree with the president to be shunned and asked to leave our country, I'd like to remind her of the First Amendment, which gives celebrities the right to criticize the president.
Condie suggests that the newspaper start a section called Government. I suggest she open up the Constitution and study the First Amendment — which fortunately still exists, despite Trump's insistence on attacking it.
