Letter to the editor: Weaponizing Pence

| Monday, May 14, 2018, 9:00 p.m.

George Will, as a result of years of articulate and successful syndicated columns, has earned his recurring 18 inches of space on the editorial pages of the nation's prestigious publications. It seems that it now takes every ounce of Will's articulate artistry and every inch of his allotted space to exude his hate for President Trump. It seems Will has now found it more effectual to weaponize patriots, i.e. Vice President Mike Pence, to assist in his attempts to penetrate the protective veneer of the president.

By thrusting accusations from his own realm of perceptions that are directed toward Pence and then weaponizing Pence, Will has now found another vector for attacking Trump. I believe that such action is merely a demonstration of Will's elitism which already stands out like the quills on an agitated porcupine.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
