Trump didn’t know who the Miracle on Ice team was

To the editor:

I want to thank your paper for the informative article on Feb. 22 regarding Mr. Trump and his interactions with the 1980 Miracle on Ice team. Far from resembling anything but a paid appearance by this team (I know it’s the 40th anniversary, but still), your article painted a comical and frankly idiotic picture of our commander-in-chief.

From getting Mike Eruzione’s name wrong to then confusing him with Jim Craig completely, it’s wholly apparent that Trump has no idea who the team is or what they did.

It’s frustrating, observing such actions and recognizing that they are completely inappropriate, as supporters of his smile and wave flags while ignoring the glaring issue that constantly being incorrect (but being OK with it) is not normal. The doubling down of this stupidity is going to eventually spill back on all of us. You reap what you sow.

Twelve more years? That’s insane.
