Thank you so much for Ann McFeatters' column ("10 rules of Trumpism," Oct. 22). I couldn't have said it better myself. As someone who has voted for nearly 60 years — for both Republicans and Democrats for president — Trump is by far the worst excuse for a president (I did not vote for him) and has made these times very scary indeed.

I would also like to thank Steve Bass for his letter ("Happy Halloween, America," Oct. 24). I really enjoyed it.

I would also like someone to answer me why, with all this news about Weinstein and O'Reilly and their misdeeds with women, that Trump is getting away with all his misdeeds. I will never understand how any woman could vote for Trump knowing his record with women. Just asking.
