America has fallen for president’s ‘act’

Stewart B. Epstein, Rochester, N.Y.
When it comes to Donald Trump, let me add my perspective and “take” to the debate:
Trump is merely a skillful, manipulative “Gaslighter” and con-artist who intentionally appeals to our worst inner qualities because he believes that this is who and what 51 percent of us are — angry, lonely, fearful, bitter, resentful and spiteful cold-hearted haters, some of whom fear projections that indicate that one day over 50 percent of the USA population will be non-white.
He plays all of us for fools and suckers because he probably doesn’t believe most of the stupid things that he cleverly spoons out to us.
Get it? It’s all an act. We have fallen for his act. He must laugh at all of us every day, both his supporters as well as his critics.
