To the Editor:

The Republican Party has been taken over by extremists lead by Donald Trump. Trump is a racist and a bigot, and if you support Trump you support racism, bigotry and white nationalism.

He doesn’t respect women and his comments about women have been utterly disgusting. Since the Republican Party doesn’t chastise him for his behavior, it also doesn’t respect women.

In supporting Trump, you support locking children in cages and incarcerating thousands of families. You don’t care about the quality of the air you breathe or the water you drink. Do you really believe coal is clean?

You also support his so-called health insurance plans that are not worth the paper they are written on, and of course doing away with the guarantee of insurance coverage for a pre-existing condition.

Trump has averaged over eight public lies per day since he has been in office. How does one believe anything a pathological liar says? You support lying? Judge Kavanaugh lied under oath to the Senate Judiciary Committee, not once but at two separate confirmations. But the Republican Party didn’t care.

Judge Kavanaugh made a fool of himself with his partisan screaming outburst and disrespect for a female senator. He said he was angry. Well, Dr. Ford was also angry but she didn’t act like a hysterical spoiled brat.

His comments were the most partisan comments ever uttered in public by a candidate for the Supreme Court. Will he show the same disrespect for female jurists on the Supreme Court?
