Oh me, oh my.

I read the Letter to the Editor in the Pioneer last week in which the writer states that Democrats need to "purge" President Trump and "his criminal cronies" by voting him out of office in 2020. ("Ballot box only way to purge Trump and his followers")

Does the writer know that purge means to remove a group of people or an individual from an organization in an abrupt or violent way? So, purging, friends, means right now, not tomorrow, not next year, not in 2020, and violently. Really?

The writer of the letter goes on to say that we fair minded citizens should nominate candidates that "appeal not only to liberal ideologues on the East and West Coasts, but also to moderates in "Middle America." How is that possible? It is an oxymoron, i.e., a contradiction in itself.

I presume the writer considers himself to be part of "Middle America," yet he uses words such as "lie-laden" and "fear mongering" regarding Mr. Trump's reelection campaign committee. Unfortunately, his "Middle America" words sound more like the words extremely liberal Democrat Reps, Nadler (East Coast) and Schiff (West Coast) would use in denouncing President Trump.

Oh me, oh my.
