“Jews Reject Trump Even As He Rolls” (Page 1 headline, Nov. 11)

What am I, as a Trump voter, chopped liver? Editorial: “Which Trump Will We Get?”  “… [O]ur national nightmare just beginning.”

The letter to the editor of the Committee on Ethics in Jewish Leadership (Nov. 4) interpreted my comments in The Jewish Week (Oct. 14) as defending the substance of Donald Trump’s [“Access Hollywood” tape] comments. The letter failed to perceive my message that Trump’s comments, as reported in the press, did not legally disqualify him from pursuing election. My reason for my view lies in the First Amendment of the United States Constitution, which protects freedom of speech in America. The Committee on Ethics in Jewish Leadership failed to perceive both the force of the First Amendment and the fact that I made no substantive comment on Trump’s message. My comments did not embrace an issue of ethics.
