Trump’s rhetoric: What do you think?

President Trump is taking a lot of flack about his rhetoric not reflecting a good image of our country. In keeping with diplomatic protocol and detractors, perhaps he should have said “third-world” countries, but the meaning is the same. I can’t recall former President Harry Truman’s wife being successful in getting him to use the word “fertilizer.”

Cheers and Jeers

Jeers: For the excuses about the sorry Cowboys. Ezekiel Elliott’s performance as well as Dak Prescott’s and Dez Bryant’s were awful. Give credit to those who stepped up their performances: Brice Butler, Alfred Morris and Rod Smith had almost as many yards as Elliott. Get rid of him, Jason Garrett and Jerry Jones.

Cheers: To “Coach P,” who keeps taking TCU’s riff-ram-bah-zoo up-tempo. Trust we all realize — and appreciate — Gary Patterson is this community’s No. 1 ambassador. By the way, the post-Alamo Bowl photo of a happy Patterson by the S-T’s Rodger Mallison was a winner.

Cheers: To the Armed Forces Bowl. From the military displays to the positive recognition of our military and first responders, it was a class act, and the game was exciting. Lockheed Martin and other bowl sponsors and the city of Fort Worth, should be proud of their endeavors.
