Letter: 10 Commandments and President Trump don’t mesh
When Moses came down from the mountain, he carried a tablet, “The Laws of God.”
When Trump was sworn in as president, he probably carried three tablets — Tylenol, Advil and Aleve.
Commandment No. 1: No other God. He worships money, power, dictators. He dislikes all laws except his son-in-law and daughter-in-law.
He tells people to break the law, won’t appear or answer a subpoena, lies in his favor and he will pardon people if convicted.
Trump and his supporters must cringe when they say the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag (not to Trump) of the United States of America.
It’s one nation under God (not Trump), indivisible (before Trump) with liberty and justice for all unless you are not black, Latin American, Muslim or looking for a better life. Most of our ancestors came for that reason.
No comment about commandments 2, 3, 4 and 5.
No. 6: Thou shall not kill. Trump is killing the dreams of Latin Americans and Muslims by stopping them from coming to the United States, separating families. Children are kidnapped, and husbands and wives are separated.
No. 7: Adultery. I don’t know what vows Trump said at his weddings, but I seem to remember saying words like “To keep me only unto thee — till death do us part.
No. 8: Steal. The world knows you must be cheating on your taxes.
No. 9: False witness. Obama and the four congresswomen, plus everybody that disagrees with him, he trashes.
No. 10 Covet. Desire. Want.
Trump doesn’t want — he demands. He stopped some of our politicians from being allowed to go to Israel after having been approved by Israel. Did he threaten them with sanctions? If he didn’t have anything to hide, why stop them from going to Israel?
Last week, he put the icing on the cake when he said “I am the chosen one.”
Do you know why his hair is yellow? It is a continuation of the yellow streak running up his spine because he refused to serve his country. Now he wants the world to serve him.
