LETTERS: President opts to visit Japan on Memorial Day

LETTERS: President opts to visit Japan on Memorial Day



Doing us a favor

Editor:

I read the letter this morning where the writer stated his disappointment that the president chose to play golf and present a trophy to a Sumo wrestler rather than honor our fallen military and law enforcement.

I felt the same until I thought about it for a moment.

If President Bone Spurs had attended the ceremonies I feel that somehow or other he would have made it about himself. It would have been like having an obnoxious relative showing up, uninvited to your wedding reception and making a mockery of the whole thing.

So in a way the Donald did us all a favor by deciding to play golf instead.

Perhaps he could repeat this favor and do the same on July 4th.

One can only hope.
