Letter: Wake up, America, to President Trump’s lies

Three mass shootings and barely a word of comfort from President Donald Trump. This administration has shown time and again, it doesn’t care.

All involved in this “we don’t care”  fiasco demands accountability and that includes all members of Congress who, along with the president, are simply devoid of taking action to stop the carnage.

Unfortunately, we have to wait until Election Day to oust this disgraceful bunch of know-nothings and do-nothings.

Anyone who thinks this president is doing a great job (foul-mouthed rhetoric, keeping the nation divided, praising the leadership of dictators and demonizing the press and our intelligence community or anyone who happens to disagree with him) is truly delusional.  He says he cares, but it’s only about himself as he continues his daily barrage of lies and misinformation. Now more than ever, the phrase “wake up, America” stands out loud and proud.
