Letter: Whoppers are told about Trump


Perspective is important, is it not? Whoppers were been told about President Donald Trump from the time he announced he was going to run for the presidency. The distortions were conspicuous to President Trump because he knew the truth.

Whoppers are being repeated today, even after the truth is available to anyone interested in the truth. President Trump could be reelected, therefore the pressure is on to discredit President Trump as much as possible. President Trump made the comment at the Ellipse to peacefully march to the Capitol. His statement was edited out of video footage by the Jan. 6 committee, and most of the media. Why? I believe because the goal is to establish a tone that everything that went wrong that day was President Trump’s fault!

Trespassing is obviously wrong, but the goal is to turn it into an insurrection. My question is why is transparency in the media and by the media ignored? The editing of a president’s speech is not of any interest to most citizens, or the Jan. 6 panel? I have another question: In the November 2020 election, how many of the ballots that were cast were in person, and how many were mailed in with no signature verification?
