Letter: Easily distracted

Editor:

You have got to hand it to President Trump. Just when the Republican health care bill comes crashing down again, he creates a national controversy about NFL players kneeling for the national anthem.

What began as a few players kneeling to protest police treatment of black citizens in our country has now exploded into another divisive issue dominating the news media.

Trump has managed to pour gasoline on a smoldering fire once again to divert our attention from his failures and to play to his bases’ emotions.

Enough of this already! How stupid are we anyway?
