Recently it has been hard to read the editorial page of The Sentinel. It has been roughly 9-1 against President Trump and those who voted for him.


Recent columns from Todd Leva (“My Take: We need to get our act together to be great again”) are filled with hate for Trump, and his supporters are called "droids, fed only with what you have been programmed for."


Then Bob Hickman (“Letter: Trump’s dangerous, nonsensical rant”) suggests that Trump supporters inject disinfectants, so we won’t be around in November to vote for him. This leaves me with two questions. Why would the Trump haters use hatred against his supporters — isn't that hypocritical? Second question is why is this hate speech being printed?
