President should also be treated with respect, dignity
In response to the letter, “Treat others with respect, dignity,” I would like to try to explain why I quoted the president exactly as he spoke it.
When someone states we need to treat others with respect and dignity I am a little dismayed the writer does not understand my intent. How you cannot see the irony when someone purposefully tries to pass off “in quotes” as something the president said that is untrue. Are you treating the president with respect and dignity? I guess this does not apply to the president — it’s OK to misquote him?
Hopefully in this little part of the country we can attempt to have public discourse with integrity and respect for everyone. This was all I was trying to get across.
