Re “After the Emmys, Sean Spicer tells critics to lighten up. But democracy isn’t a joke” (Editorials, Sept. 19): Like most subscribers, I care about facts. Unlike your editorial board, I thought Sean Spicer was hilarious. Will Rogers could have been speaking about the Trump administration when he said: “We are all here for a spell, get all the good laughs you can.”

Time to go
Re “California will soon be a ‘sanctuary state’ for undocumented immigrants” (sacbee.com, Sept. 16): All doubt has been removed that state is going to hell in a hand basket. It is time to move. State government has gone off the deep end and I doubt it will ever return.

A swift kick
Much has been said about Donald Trump’s deal with Democrats on disaster aid and the debt ceiling. I’m a Republican and I’m all for it. During the Obama years, the GOP played games promising all that they would do if only they could. Well, it’s time to do it. Republicans needed a swift kick, and Trump gave it. Republicans can get moving or become irrelevant. Their choice.

Re “That political ad on your TV would list its top donors under California bill” (sacbee.com, Sept. 15): Our legislators should wear suits with sponsors’ names, similar to race car drivers, and the Legislature should have an ever-changing digital billboard.

Re “Trump hypes mock video of golf ball seen striking Clinton” (sacbee.com, Sept. 17): Keep your tweets coming, President Trump. Each one reveals much. Here are two examples: Shooting a person in the back. This used to be called cowardly. Not now, if it’s you. Attacking a woman. Not now, if it’s you.

Re “White House denies reports that U.S. is staying in the Paris Climate Accord” (sacbee.com, Sept. 16): Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted that the U.S. won’t re-enter the Paris agreement unless we get “pro-America terms.” This voluntary agreement is signed by 195 countries. It’s embarrassing that America is pulling out. Republicans must demand their party do better.
