It's time to stop the verbal hate remarks toward our president, his family and his administration. It's time to stop the hate rallies in cities by people who oppose the election of our current president.

The constant acceptable hate rhetoric thrown at the American people by newspaper columnists, the internet news and televised networks resulted in Kathy Griffin's horrific act against our president and Reality Winner's act of treason toward our country.

During the 2016 campaign incivility raised its head with name calling and flame throwing. Media columnists constantly blasted Trump with hateful rhetoric but ignored the acts of treason by Hillary Clinton making American citizens angry with the show of elitist protection from the law.

Our media and people who hate our president and his administration are to blame for the continuing acceptable bad mouthing and violence. They hold the blame for the recent shooting at a ballpark in Virginia.
