Re: “Legislator from South Portland blasted for anti-Trump rant on Facebook” (July 13):

Where was the outrage of Jason Savage, Maine Republican Party executive director, when the explicitly vulgar comments about women made by Donald Trump in the 2005 “Access Hollywood” recording became public last October? Some excerpts: “I moved on her … . I did try and … she was married. … And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them … . You can do anything.”

The Republican call for state Rep. Scott Hamann to resign after he asked “Would you be okay with leaving him alone in a room with your wife?” is drowned out by the rising chorus of citizens who ask: “Who will rid us of this troublesome and immoral president?”

The apology to be made must come from all those who continue to support a man of such demonstrated unethical and immoral behavior, whether he is on the “Access Hollywood” bus or tweeting early in the morning from his bedroom in the White House, the People’s House.
