To the editor:

Recently, 40-year firearms hater and former vice president Joe Biden told us, “With all due respect to the governor of Texas, it is irrational what they’re doing. On the very day you see a mass shooting … and we’re talking about loosening access to have guns, to be able to take them into places of worship … I mean it’s just absolutely irrational. It’s totally irrational.”

A week ago, a congregation in Texas learned how irrational it was when a madman with a shotgun was killed less than six seconds after he opened fire, saving dozens if not hundreds of lives.

The climate expert Biden recently told us that in order to curb the rate of pollution we need to hold fossil fuel executives “liable for what they have done, particularly in those cases where there are underserved neighborhoods.” When they don’t deliver, Biden offered, “put them in jail.”

Maybe he just forgot that his son was on the board of directors of a Ukrainian oil company accused of corruption.

It’s no wonder I think Trump will win re-election in 2020 without the help of anyone but the Democrat candidates.
