My take: Report attacks Trump

On my daily walk from where I live on Lakeland Hills to our neighborhood Starbucks for my coffee refill, I accidentally saw and quickly read on the displayed newspapers the top news on the front page of the Seattle Times, Aug, 27, 2019, titled “Ferguson: Treat migrant kids with a little humanity.”

The first two paragraphs read:

“Migrant children held in rooms so cramped they couldn’t all sit, never mind lie down. Roll calls held at midnight, 3, 6 and 9 in the morning. Food that tasted like dirt, water like chlorine. Cruel guards who in one instance threw food on the floor, instigating fights as hungry kids scrambled to get it.

“These are some of the experiences described in a declaration based on interviews with children who spent time in border detention facilities and now living in Washington.”

When I read this part of the news, I stopped reading what was next, and silently exclaimed to myself, “Oh well, another fake news report, written by a fake news reporter, on a fake news publication, the typical Trump-hating newspaper.

Really, I don’t think American border guards would have the guts and the nerves to do those kind of evil things. They are not the typical Nazi prison guards of the Second World War. It was written only to repeatedly put down President Trump and to display this hate for him.

Thank you for hearing me out.
