Stefanik’s false protestations

To the editor:

Rep. Stefanik’s nervous answer, quoted in the Enterprise today (Wednesday), “I don’t believe he’s a racist,” in reaction to the twitterer-in-chief’s latest bigoted salvo, is as believable as the existence of the tooth fairy. Evidently her party leader’s penchant to lie has infected her, or do we take it she’s become gullible in despairing how low the high office of the presidency has sunk?

Her diverting remark “calling for (Republican) Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to bring to the floor bipartisan legislation to strengthen election security,” fails to point out this inaction is unquestioned by Trump, as it serves his interest to maintain ineffective defense to Russian interference.
