Reader's view: Let's hope Trump gets bored soon

Is it just me, or does it seem we're living in Bizarro World? You know, like in the old Superman comics, where everything was turned around and upside down, and where words and the truth meant the opposite of what was actually said? I'm talking about the present occupant of the White House, of course. Does President Donald Trump really have any credibility anymore? As if he ever did. We've become the laughingstock of the world.

I used to think Trump was kind of funny, but I got over that a long time ago and am now just disgusted every time I see him or hear him speak. Isn't it time for the present occupant to move on to some other grand money-making scheme? Or isn't he done fleecing the American people yet? Let's hope he gets bored soon.

And on another fun note: does anybody remember the Republican scare tactic when the Affordable Care Act was being proposed? You know, about "death panels," a group of people who would decide who would live or die? Of course it was a ridiculous idea thought up by some conservative PR person to scare the American public. I'm sure some people bought it. Now the Republicans have found a way to make this idea obsolete. In their version of a health plan, all elderly, poor, and others not lucky enough to have good insurance would be doomed. Voila, no need for death panels. Everyone's in! What a stroke of genius.

I just wonder how some people can sleep at night.
