Re: “Trump candidacy is laughable – and a bit terrifying” (Eugene Robinson column, 4-20).

It didn’t take long for the liberal supporters of everything Obama to start their engines. Yes, Robinson is one of many who have come out and started their campaign to discredit and attack anyone who questions anything about Obama.

The far left liberal talk shows have interviewed Donald Trump and are doing their very best to trip him up on answers to questions none of them have ever had the courage to ask Obama. They even include difficult follow-up questions, which never seem to get asked of Obama.

The Donald may or may not decide to run. However, his decision to run would make this a very interesting and enlightening election, especially during the debates that would ensue. The Donald sees the world situations as they are occurring and has solutions to a lot of them.

The mainstream media’s goal is to make a clown of him and use their interviews and columns to discredit him. They have every right to attack his opinions on what needs to be done to fix the deficit, end the wars (including Obama’s new war in Libya) and get the economy moving. What they are doing, however, is attacking and ridiculing him in order to render his opinions and ideas as terrifying and foolish.

If only the media would have done a better job at vetting Obama; many of the problems now facing America could have been averted.
