Letter: The bar can’t get lower

The backlash by what Hillary Clinton dubbed “deplorables” has come to roost in the election of the least prepared and most despised Republican presidential candidate in modern history. That he utterly destroyed 16 primary opponents without having to lay out a single coherent plan or idea but only with nasty and insulting rhetoric and a bottomless pit of lies and promises he can never believed he could keep, should have made Americans take notice that he was a proverbial three-alarm fire.
