Through Trump administration, the circus lives on | Letters

In May of this year, one of America's greatest entertainment institutions, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, held its final performance. Afterward, the performers, staff, animals and equipment were dispersed, never to be seen in public again. However, the brothers, P.T. and Bailey, would be pleased to know the circus continues, on a daily basis, in a new venue known as Washington D.C.; specifically the White House and the halls of Congress.

Trump, as ringmaster, leads an amazing cast of characters, many of which have no business working in the White House or anywhere else in government service. His Twitter rants, cronyism, nepotism, and his inability to lead this great country in a positive direction, has made the United States a laughing stock on the world stage. Now he's giving thought to pardoning himself even though he feels he has done nothing wrong. Perhaps his approval rating needs to drop to zero before he wakes up. The American people deserve better.

Although his ego and narcissism will not allow him to, Trump should stand up, be a man, and admit he bit off more than he can chew and leave now. I am sure the American people and the United States will be better off for it.
