Another line crossed by Trump
Emma Lazarus’ poem, now known as the Statue of Liberty poem, in part reads, “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” It does not say “except for those who come from a ‘shithole,” as defined by our Idiot and Chief Donald J. Trump. How can such an evil person still have any supporters. Then he goes on to say we should allow more Norwegians to immigrate into the USA. What?!
What Donald J. Trump should have said is: “Let’s make America great again. … Let us become more like Norway: a rich economy with higher wage rates and a higher standard of living. Additionally Norway has lower unemployment, a lower poverty rate, free health care, better education, a lower crime rate, and better infrastructure.”
So the question that should be breached is why would a Norwegian want to come to this “shit hole”?
How do you, as an American, like being on the other end of such a disgusting remark? I don’t, and all Americans should be offended by such a caustic remark by our fake leader, a man who is supposed to lead the “free world.”
Maybe Trump should change his name to Adolf Benito Trump; after all, he has similar Aryan race principles as Adolf had 70 years ago, and he has adopted the same pouty face that Benito Mussolini made famous.
What have we gotten ourselves in to?
We need Trump out of the presidency, or the USA will become just a footnote in history, and not as envisioned by Ronald Reagan who said, “America is a shining city upon a hill whose beacon light guides freedom-loving people everywhere.” Hmm … what do the Trumpster’s Republican supporters have to say to that?

I was disturbed by Aspen High School Principal Sarah Strassburger’s April 11 guest commentary: “State board of education representative off mark on Aspen High Survey.”
