Plea for H-E-L-P from the Tweeter-in-Chief | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

Like many others, when I first heard the tweet about The Squad, I thought it was xenophobic and sexist.

After more thought, it occurred to me that it was actually a plea for help from these true American congresswomen. I’ve waited for a news reporter or writer to pick up on this.

If you read his words:

Tweet Part 1: Referring to them coming from a county whose government is a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world, if they even have a functioning government at all — you can see him describing OUR country. As The Squad is from our country and it’s just as he describes.

Tweet Part 2: Telling the people of the United States, the greatest and most powerful nation on earth, how our government is to be run. Well, that is the job they were elected to do.

Tween Part 2 and 3: Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came. DC most definitely is and The Squad is there precisely to fix what he broke and they are most definitely trying to show him/congress how it is done.

“Go back from where you came,” those are words my parents heard the Nazis and anti-semites yell at them in Poland, Russia, and Germany. They heard it hurled at them in this country, and I heard them yelled at me, as a child. All of us who have endured hearing them know they sting at the time and continue to, even 67 years later.

The Tweeter-in-Chief ran for office because he was unhappy with how our government was run and thought, “He alone could fix it.” Why did he not leave if he did not like this great nation? He extols and idolizes Putin, Salman, and Kim more than Washington, Adams and Hamilton. So why does he not move to a country he’d prefer?

Is this his Be Best response to his immigrant wife’s plea regarding cyberbullying? Why did this great patriot never serve in the military for the country he’s so proud of and purportedly loves? Why did none of his offspring?

I’m a naturalized citizen of the United States. This is my country and it’s the country of The Squad. They are to be admired for standing up and speaking out.
