In drawing a comparison between Hogan and Trump, KAL went too far

Gov. Larry Hogan delivers his annual State of the State address to a joint session of the legislature in Annapolis last January. Polls suggest he is one of the most popular governors in the nation.

I’m not thrilled by Gov. Larry Hogan’s campaign to derail the Kirwan Commission’s goal of reforming education. However, Kevin Kallaugher’s cartoon in Sunday’s paper was a tale of false equivalency (“KAL’S VIEW,” Nov. 3). KAL compared the rhetoric of the president with that of the governor.

Governor Hogan has raised all sorts of issues about Kirwan’s purpose and fiscal sustainability. I think he’s misguided, but he hasn’t demeaned, abused or verbally assaulted anyone. President Trump exists in a special sphere of American politics.

Just because someone disagrees with the governor doesn’t mean the governor is just like Donald Trump, and to make such an implication only seeks to divide us further and make post-Trump reconciliation more difficult.
