Cowards in Congress are enabling a charlatan

A while back, the Standard-Examiner published a satirical letter from me about a little old lady, secretary of the homeowners association, who was outvoted for HOA president by a newcomer, rich celebrity (“A story about a little old lady, a celebrity and a homeowners association,” March 29, 2017). My criticism was essentially of the residents who said, "Give him a chance, he's going to make the neighborhood great again."

I had no idea at the time that it wasn't just going to be the voters who enabled the man in real life, it was going to be our elected representatives in Congress. Who knew that in 2018 a charlatan would be looked upon as some sort of a savior for the country by the elected officials in Washington. I know it's simply because they want to pass the crap that they've been trying to pass for years, but there comes a time and a point in a person's life when he has to stand up for what's right.

When the crap hits the fan, and it will, they’re all going to be held up as the cowards they are.
