Letter: Life imitates classic TV

You can’t make this up!
This morning I watched an episode of the old western TV series, “Trackdown,” on Me-TV.
In it, a charlatan convinced gullible citizens that a massive meteor shower was going to destroy them unless they purchased his special umbrellas to protect them from disaster.
“Only I can protect you!” he shouted at one point.
His name: "Trump!"
Of course, it was only TV. Our hero exposed the crook and saved the town. Unfortunately, there is no hero to protect us from our own Trump and his gullible followers.
Oh yes, the TV episode was entitled "The End of the World."
