Letter to the Editor: Vote Representative McMorris Rodgers out

PAT BATES, Clarkston

Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers said at her Aug. 10, Town Hall meeting, “ I support [President] Donald Trump because, because, because he’s a disrupter and we need to change D.C. I continue to support him.” When a later question about Trump was asked, she said, “Trump was elected POTUS. He won the election and I’ve already told you why I support him.” So, being a disrupter is McMorris Rodgers’ qualification for POTUS?

Another woman recently disagreed with her when she said she thought the POTUS should be: “Someone who knows his job and takes it seriously. Someone who understands the issues a president faces are not black and white and cannot be boiled down to 140 characters. Because when you have the nuclear codes at your fingertips and the military in your command, you can’t make snap decisions. You can’t have thin skin or lash out. You need to be steady and measured and well informed.” That woman was Michelle Obama.

It is quite clear to 67 percent of Americans agree with her. Trump is not an honorable man, and he clearly isn’t qualified to hold the office of POTUS. McMorris Rodgers says he’s qualified. That’s just one of the many reasons why we know she’s not qualified to be our representative. We will do our part to truly change D.C. by voting her out of office in 2018.
