To the man who thinks he is God


Dear Mr. Trump,

So I understand that, in your commencement address at Liberty University, you trumpeted the idea that “We worship God” here in the United States, unless you meant that only the graduates you were addressing worship God. I wonder.

Who is this “we”?

Is it the man who bragged about assaulting women because he was famous and could get away with it, grabbing p***y whenever he could, hitting on married women? Is he the one who worships God?

Is it the man, perhaps, who hides his tax returns and business interests and payments from the Russians because he can get away with it – at least so far? Is he the one who worships God? I think, if so, it’s the God of Money.

Is it the man who wants to take health care away from millions and cause millions to die as a result? Is he the one who worships God? He worships himself. He thinks he must be God. He thinks that everyone at Liberty University worships him.

Is it the man who is a serial cheater on his wives? Is he the holier than thou man who worships God?

Disgust is too mild a word, sir, for the feelings you engender.

Very truly yours,

Bruce J. Berger
