Letter to the editor: Trump top traitor
Benedict Arnold has worn the crown as the most despicable traitor in our history. A general in the Continental Army, he became dismayed at the lack of “appreciation and notoriety” for saving New York from a British invasion at the battle of Lake Champlain and later at Saratoga. Arnold decided he was larger than the young American republic and “turned coats” to wear the uniform of his king, George III.
So here we are, eight years shy of 250 years from our independence and that infamous betrayal, faced with the possibility of a new and authentically American-born traitor. He shares the same “all about me” mentality and commands all to bow to his presence.
Alleged Russian collaborator Trump will forever carry the title of the most treacherous American in our history. Sorry Benedict, records, even the most duplicitous ones, are meant to be broken one day. And that day resides just below the horizon.
