Margaret Munson: Need someone to safely and sanely run the country

Trump’s petty and pathetic vindictiveness towards Senator John McCain clearly stems from the fact that Senator McCain was a moral and physical hero and Trump has never been — and never will be — either kind of hero.

I am a liberal Democrat but have always admired the senator.

I understand why people support Trump. They have been ignored by mainstream politicians and he promised a change. Hopefully, those voters are looking at today’s realities and know why a change is needed, why America needs to be protected from Putin. If Trump is in debt to Russia, what does this suggest? Obstructing justice is a crime so what does that make Trump? He is intellectually impaired, emotionally immature, crass, shallow, misogynistic, bigoted and corrupt.

Is this the person to safely and sanely represent America?
