Trump and Ayotte

May 22. 2016 7:26PM

Sen. Kelly Ayotte (David Lane/Union Leader)

To the Editor: Today, Donald Trump is the presumptive, soon-to-be Republican presidential candidate. The reasons that this is so abhorrent to most intelligent people are almost too numerous to mention. From his crassness, to his misogyny, to the horror of how our allies and other heads of state view him, the list goes on and on.

And yet there are those who, beyond belief, are willing to entrust The Donald with the nuclear codes.

Sadly one of those is our own Sen. Kelly Ayotte. She has stated that she will not endorse, but will support Donald Trump. Here is a classic example of someone putting their political party above what is good for the country. This is a catastrophic lapse in judgment and a primary reason why Maggie Hassan should replace her in the Senate.
