Trump and supporters bear blame for crisis

U.S. Rep. Elise Stefanik’s hitching her future to the honey-wagon of President Donald Trump will give her a ride through the material it contains. She should be prepared; she may be joining the crowd he throws under the bus when her usefulness is no longer needed.

As Trump proclaimed her to be a “rising star” in his political arena, I say that it’s already tarnished. She should be wise. It’s good to have a Plan B.

She put herself and her personal gain above her constituents! I am tired of the behavior of both Republicans and Democrats lately. I have been a registered Republican for over 30 years, but am switching my political party from Republican to Independent. I'll vote for the best person for the job, not by party line.


I hope tRump leaves the top in tatters.


He wouldn't hesitate to throw her (or anyone else) under the bus if it suited his mood of the moment. I recall Pres. Kennedy quoting the old saying that "Those who ride the back of the tiger may wind up inside."
