In his typical monochromatic fashion, Leonard Pitts heaps shame on those who plan to vote for Donald Trump regardless of his ill-considered remarks (“Republicans’ continued support for Trump’s odd campaign inexcusable,” Aug. 3). I plan to vote for Trump, albeit with extreme reluctance.
I concede all of Pitts’ criticism of Trump, but I also have to consider some disastrous outcomes of a Hillary Clinton administration. Chief among these is that she will tilt the Supreme Court to the liberals for the next generation. While Trump might be disrespectful of fallen heroes, Clinton will see to it that countless unborn babies will continue to be butchered.
I understand that Pitts is in favor of abortion rights, but he should acknowledge that a substantial portion of this country (perhaps even the majority) is not, and their desire to protect the unborn weighs more than their disgust with the drivel that comes out of Trump’s mouth. Clinton can do more damage with her Supreme Court picks than Trump can do with his foolishness.
I am not excited about voting for Trump, but I am not ashamed to do so.
