Column right on Trump re-elect

A crowd moved along Constitution Avenue during the Women’s March on Washington, Jan. 17, 2017, the first full day of Donald Trump’s presidency.

In a July 2 column by Michael Smith, the writer expressed his disdain for the “harasser-in-chief.”

I wondered which one he meant. Could it be President Donald Trump? He did mention former President Bill Clinton, but what about John F. Kennedy, Thomas Jefferson and some of the more notorious dalliances from the men in the political power spectrum?

What shocked me most was that the writer was afraid the pink wave of the #MeToo movement might lose some of its fury if “peace and prosperity persuade swing voters to overlook character flaws and focus on results.”

Accomplishing peace, prosperity and getting results seem to be the necessary qualities of a leader. I can overlook many human flaws if our leader can provide these attributes for our country.

Smith is correct, many voters will be very happy if Trump accomplishes all these things, and he will be re-elected.
