Robert Barnesky’s Feb. 25 letter to the editor reminds me of a high school coach I had in 1943. Even though we lost half of our games, he always had some kind of logic for why we lost. Of course, never because we were out of our class or because the other team was better.

With that said, the real reason for the loss was Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton. This was like sending a Pekingese puppy to fight a pit bulldog.

But the main reason for Clinton’s loss to Trump was he told the people he would improve business and put more people to work, while Hillary continued with her normal blame the other guy.
