Publishing Wendy Hernandez's comment calling the president a "Poor baby" (They were mean to Trump) shows a lack of editorial expertise or wisdom.


Publishing demeaning retorts serves no purpose other than to inflame emotions and further exacerbate the existing political division of our community. A newspaper's purpose to responsibly inform, to educate, or to entertain was woefully ignored when the editorial team chose the previous quoted letter.


May I respectively suggest that your staff jointly review and reaffirm the purpose and values of your own platform? Publishing school-yard taunts will not be among them.
