I was surprised to read the Jan. 1 letter, “Are name-callers who we want in charge?” It was written by a supporter of President Donald Trump, and I know no one who is a bigger name-caller than Trump — with the possible exception of a boy I knew once in the second grade.

As for the letter’s advice to Democrats to spend their energy “trying to get along with everyone instead of lashing out and name-calling,” this would be excellent advice for the president as well.

And, for the record, Mr. President, John McCain was a war hero.
