Re: Richard Lodmell’s letter of July 10 (‘Defending Trump from Foulds’ attacks’):
Actually, U.S. President Donald Trump is a lying despot.
He has made 10,796 false or misleading claims, according to the Fact Checker’s database that analyzes, categorizes and tracks every suspect statement the president has uttered.
Change happens from the bottom up, not the top down, as per the plastic bag issue in Kamloops.
Mark Twain put it well: “It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to talk and remove all doubt.”
Silence is the virtue of those who are not wise.
Silence is wisdom and gets a man friends.
Silence is wisdom when speaking is folly.
Use the quote that eases your conscience the most.
