Reader's view: Caricature of Trump vicious, hateful

How ironic that on a day when there was an outpouring of love and compassion stemming from the tragic church shooting in Texas there was an outpouring of anti-Trump hate in the News Tribune.

I never saw a caricature of President Barack Obama during his entire term as vicious as the caricature on the Opinion pages on Nov. 5 of President Donald Trump. It brought to mind the saying, "When you have lost the argument, stoop to a personal attack." And for the editorial cartoonist to make light of Hillary Clinton's role in the vast litany of corruption connected to her was a further tragedy.

There's no use saying, "Shame on you." There seems to be hardly anyone who feels shame at the News Tribune anymore. Hate seems to be quite permissible.
