There’s no one like an old fool

CAROLE MYERS GERST Milesburg I was totally flabbergasted when I heard Trump say his impeachment would cause a civil war. The arrogance of his comments shows that he falls nothing short than that of a dictator that has become unhinged. To think that I had voted for him makes me think ...
