Diane von Ende, Sartell
I would like to object to the extremely fanatical, left-wing, disparaging and tasteless column you wrote in the Friday, July 31 Sartell Newsleader. I know most lefties are angry haters, and I can understand it must be extremely frustrating to try to control and change people into believing your narrow viewpoint. It’s shameful you must resort to name calling as in the “Trump just latest clown in three-ring circus” column. Your attempt to twist what Trump said about McCain sickens us who actually listen to what was said. Trump said repeatedly in that interview McCain was a war hero. You’re not a journalist, you’re a fairytale writer. As a fiction writer, you can avoid the truth and not be called a liar.
I enjoy reading about what is going on in our lovely city but do not care at all for your hateful, fact-less storytelling, especially when we cannot rebut your ridiculous and stupid comments. At the end, you asked if any of your dwindling Republican friends were listening. Left or right, how does anyone who writes this trash have any friends at all?
Editor’s note: At the Family Leadership Conference in Ames, Iowa, the following is exactly what Donald Trump said: “He’s (Sen. John McCain) not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.” And since that statement, Trump, while spewing his venom and tall tales, has gone on to make more “hateful, fact-less, ridiculous, disparaging, tasteless and stupid” comments, to use your own adjectives, Ms. von Ende.
