Messenger: Trump Fans Give Columnist a Piece of Their Mind

Article excerpt

Sometimes a columnist gets lucky with his timing. Like last week when I wrote about my family's trip to Disney World's Hall of Presidents and how contradictory it would be to the theme of inclusion to have to add a bigoted Donald Trump in the display, should he ever be elected.

A couple of days later, Trump doubled down on bigotry by suggesting America should close its borders to all Muslims, thus helping to make my point. Thanks, Donald.

Sadly, too many of his followers have yet to see through his dangerous schtick. I heard from many of them this week. Here's what they have to say:

Dear Tony,

Your piece on Trump was 100 percent crap especially coming from someone like you who bears great responsibility to what happened in Ferguson and the nation because of your irresponsible reporting and incitement based on the lie, Hands Up, Don't Shoot and Black Lives Matter.

Dear Tony,

Not sure why you fear Trump so much. We already have a bigoted and racist President. Plus he is an elitist. We have already been taken to a "very dark place as a nation." That has been "planted, tilled and watered" by 7 years of this Presidency stoking racism and division.

Dear Tony,

That was a weak segue from the Disney World Hall of Presidents exhibit to your Trump bashing exhibit. He's far from the president, you can take a breath. Although, I love the bias you have. This guy must enrage you. That's hilarious. Try reporting and letting people make up their mind about a candidate. Also, why don't you have some conviction, and call him a bigoted racist, yourself. Why do you hide behind Dana Milbank's comments. What makes her liberal media bias fact, anyway?

Good day, Rob H.

Dear Rob: Dana Milbank is a man.

Dear Tony,

Be respectful of those that concur with many things Trump points out. Conservative and independents are looking for an "Avenger". Trump non politician comes out swinging and is not the politically correct guy. …
