Trump exhausting, needs to behave

To the editor:

Exhaustion. That’s what is happening. We are all being hammered with words: traitor, emergency, fake, enemy, lies, ridiculous, terrible.

It is no different than the child in our own family who has exceptional skill and enormous ambition and wants “to get on with things.” They will use the same words. They know they pack a punch.

“Hey, kid, not so fast,” you say. “You are part of a family with rules and commitments to family values. The rules will be obeyed.”

Trump, your rules are “laws of the land” and your commitment is to the Constitution. Just like the kid who is exhausting the parent, you are exhausting your citizens.

Any lawless behavior needs to be curbed.

We cannot cave.
