No Cheers Here

It pains me to take exception to a remark by Ken Oliver in “Crowd Comes Out To ‘Back the Blue’ In Southampton Village” [, September 5].

Mr. Oliver sounds like an admirable man who has done much for our community, and I certainly agree to “backing the blue.” And, like Mr. Oliver, I like beer, too.

But when he uses his noble cause to get in a cheer for Donald Trump, I have to disagree. Trump is a deranged individual who is destroying our democracy. The present chaos in the country and our problems with COVID-19 are direct results of his boorishness and stupidity.

I pray we will be delivered from this scourge on Election Day.
