Donald Trump has insulted Latinos, immigrants, disabled people, Jews, Muslims, a federal judge and a host of others. He's run a few companies into bankruptcy. He is quick-tempered. He has no government experience. He won't release his tax returns. His views on issues change frequently. For example, he said, "I don't want to have guns in classrooms, although in some cases, teachers should have guns in classrooms, frankly" thus contradicting himself in a single sentence. He endorses bribery, saying that he contributed to candidates because, "When you give, they do whatever the hell you want them to do."

He decries the fact that American manufacturing has gone overseas while owning a company which manufactures ties in China. He gave large sums of money to the Clinton Foundation and criticizes the Clintons as running a slush fund ("Trump's campaign manager calls plagiarism accusations 'absurd' and blames Hillary Clinton," July 19).

On the other hand, Hillary Clinton is a pathological liar with a long list of lies. She said that she had empathy for immigrants because three of her grandparents were immigrants, but the fact checkers determined that only one was an immigrant. She lied about coming under gunfire on a foreign trip. Though dodging an indictment, she engaged in inappropriate and grossly careless behavior with her emails and with our national security, according to FBI Director James Comey. The Clinton Foundation solicited and received donations from foreign governments while she was U.S. Secretary of State. The list goes on and on.

As William Shakespeare wrote, "There's small choice in rotten apples."
