Opinion: Letter to the Editor: Political Atmosphere

"There's no silence. If anything, I'm giving them a bigger voice," Trump said. "Many people don't even know who (Brennan) is, and now he has a bigger voice. And that's OK with me, because I like taking on voices like that. I've never respected him."

This man has the gall to pick on American heroes, women, handicapped, the press, minorities, immigrants, U.S. allies, and I'm sure I missed a few groups ... and of course his own extended staff, the Intel community in general, judges, the court system, and now he's found a way to bully a new group that has some clout.

When are lawmakers on the right side of the aisle going to wake up and realize Trump is tearing apart our government's ideals, traditions, and quite possibly our national security, all because he can't handle anyone disagreeing with him. What petty childish temper tweets!

By the way, Virginia Dems, I will miss the supportive political atmosphere here when I move back to Florida this fall.
