I found it ironic that Deborah Diltz complained about “insults and attacks” toward Donald Trump (“Letter’s insults, attacks on Trump ‘unworthy of publication’,” Aug. 28).

Is Ms. Diltz unaware that Trump routinely dishes out insults (“Crooked Hillary,” “Crazy Bernie,” calling women “dogs”) and constantly attacks others: (media is “the enemy of the people,” female Congress members should “go back where they came from”).

She accuses those opposing Trump of “hate,” yet it is Trump who has an agenda of hate toward liberals, minorities, LBGTQ, the media, etc.

She says Norm Gellaty offers “no examples to support his opinions.” I’ll offer some: Trump claims to have won an election he clearly lost, inciting his supporters (“dangerous imposter”), Trump took classified material to his home (“a menace”).

And here’s the definitions of buffoon —”someone whose ridiculous behavior is a source of amusement to others” — and boorish —”rough and bad-mannered.” I’d have a hard time finding two better words to describe Trump, who insults people (see above) and says ridiculous things. Being “bad-mannered” is something Trumpers take pride in.

A “vocabulary reservoir barely more than 100 words” is hyperbole, but here’s a Trump quotation about expectations from a second term: “Well, one of the things that will be really great, you know, the word experience is still good. I always say talent is more important than experience. I’ve always said that. But the word experience is a very important word. It’s a very important meaning.”

The letters critical of Trump this paper has printed are appropriate.
