SMN’s Scott Mcleod and his hypocrisy

Written by 

To the Editor:

“You can’t debate with someone who repeatedly traffics in blatant lies and counterfeit bluster,” wrote Smoky Mountain News Editor Scott McLeod about Donald Trump in his December 27, 2017, column.

There are just so many ways that demonstrats the hypocrisy of Scott McLeod. I only have time for a few.

Surely, we never heard Scott say such things about President Barack Obama, whose “blatant lies and counterfeit bluster” were legion, such as:

• Better health care for more people for less money.

• If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.

• If you like your plan, you can keep your plan.

• The most transparent administration in history.

• The Cambridge police acted stupidly.

• “My position hasn’t changed” on using executive authority to address immigration issues.

• “Most young Americans right now, they’re not covered” by health insurance.

• “We’ve got close to 7 million Americans who have access to health care for the first time because of Medicaid expansion.”

And Scott continues to believe that the Haywood County Republican Party did not bring charges against the Haywood Five for “party disloyalty,” despite being shown both evidence that they did and evidence that it could not have happened any other way.
