Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Never-Trump senator from Arizona, retiring. Blasts Trump for setting a bad tone in politics.
The Washington big-shots still don’t get it. We didn’t vote for Trump because he was crass, we voted for him even though he was crass. We voted for him because he wasn’t Jeb or Mario or any of the other appeasers quietly going along with Hillary’s coronation. We voted for him because he was willing to push back against the endless slanders issued by Democrats, the media, academia and Hollywood against ordinary, decent, law-abiding, hard-working, tax-paying Americans.
Trump is not the swamp, senator, he’s the guy we hired to drain the swamp and you’ve been standing in his way. Don’t let the door hit you . . . .
Hard to pick who to like less.
