You trying to imply [Donald] Trump is Hitler? You know, Hitler was responsible for millions of deaths and the Holocaust. Trump is responsible for hotels and casinos.                                                       — Ted Franke

…If a person was willing to suffer reading through Hitler’s crap, they would soon recognize the outlines of the same campaign Trump ran, blueprinted in the book…                      —Michael A Peake

A modest proposal

Please implement the practice of simply referring to the man currently occupying the White House as ‘45’ or ‘number 45,’ as that should serve two purposes: 1) removes the legitimacy of having to read ‘President Tr*#p’ in print and 2) reduces the often-hilarious, belittling names that could be turned around by others with disagreeing points of view. The name-calling (although spot on!) falls outside the guidelines of Michele Obama’s provocative call to action: ‘When they go low, we go high.’ …  Thank you for all you do and keep up the fabulous work!                                     —Elizabeth Farley
