Common sense seems to be at a premium among Trump defenders.
It's not accurate to refer to those who oppose President Donald Trump as Trump haters ("Critics of president not being productive," Reading Eagle, July 13). They are informed voters.
Letter writer Sharon Sensenig claims that CNN, NBC, ABC and MSNBC report lies. Some serious fact-checking is required before stating one's comments as facts. Trump supporters often use Fox News as their primary source of information. That organization has been caught in so many misrepresentations that one of its own news analysts resigned in protest. PolitiFact's page dedicated to Fox shows the network's abysmal record in reporting the facts. And Fox commentator Sean Hannity serves as informal adviser to the current occupant of the White House.
Common sense seems to be at a premium amid the chaos engulfing the world. We are at an all-time low in the world's eyes. Trump has done nothing to move this country forward. He has stoked our greatest fears and instilled unprecedented turmoil with his misinformation, lack of knowledge of diplomacy, and history and lack of compassion. He has done little to make America great. He is more about making himself great. If one truly believes that President Barack Obama left a mess, you ain't seen nothing yet till this president leaves office.
President's critics are informed voters
