In response to her Aug. 31 letter, I disagree with Tammy Ann Thompson that President Donald Trump is so picked on by left-leaning media. Mr. Trump has made his bed and he should lie in it. Sarah Palin defeated herself by quitting. She failed miserably in an interview with Katie Couric. Hillary Clinton has absolutely nothing to do with politics now, no matter what you think of her. No one cares.
As for Mark Begich, it is clear Ms. Thompson simply dislikes any opposing opinion. A true statesman, Sen. John McCain clearly pointed out the unity that should be in politics by choosing President George W. Bush and President Barack Obama to give eulogies at his funeral. Donald Trump will never be in the class of these gentlemen, and certainly never in John McCain's class.
On a separate note, thank you to the Anchorage Daily News for publishing news from other media across the country. When you live in a remote community and only have access to national news through TV and the print media, we appreciate national coverage. We get local coverage through the Homer News, Homer Tribune and the Peninsula Clarion, so we appreciate the national news printed in Anchorage Daily News.
