Re “Trump is a genius, not inept” letter by John Bonsignor.
A recent letter to the editor laughingly called President Trump a genius. I must take issue with this characterization.
Trump is, at best, a clever con man who somehow managed to get elected by pandering to the basest elements of our society and amazingly accumulated an Electoral College majority.
For varying and complex reasons, Washington, Lincoln and FDR are some of the former presidents who come to mind when the word genius is mentioned. Unfortunately, there are many antonyms to that word that rational people will use when discussing the current occupant of the White House.
