In response to the column by Randy Weber ("Dems conducting impeachment in search of a crime," The Daily News, Nov. 16): Weber's column brought to mind an old tale, "The Emperor's New Clothes" written by Hans Christian Andersen, about two weavers who promise an emperor a new suit of clothes that they say is invisible to those who are unfit for their positions, stupid or incompetent — while in reality, they make no clothes at all, making everyone believe the clothes are invisible to them.

When the emperor parades before his subjects in his new "clothes" no one dares to say that they don't see any suit of clothes on him for fear that they will be seen as stupid. Finally, a child cries out, "But he isn't wearing anything at all." Pretty well describes a lot of folks these days. Weber has proven to be one of them.

There does seem to be plenty of incompetency and stupidity to go around. Too many people are pretending to see the clothes, and they will pay the price come election time.

Sharon, Sharon, Sharon - imagining Trump with no clothes! What would Freud say!

Gary Scoggin

Freud would be too busy on Donald Trump to have time for Sharon.

Carlos Ponce

Gary, Trump is not imagining Sharon with no clothes on.

Bailey Jones

Yeah, I'm with you on this one.

"Rep. Weber is out of touch with reality" - I don't know if this headline came from the author or an editor, but I disagree with it. Weber is entirely in touch with the reality of his constituency - at least the part of it that will re-elect him, and that's the only reality that counts. (Whether that reality bears any similarity to the reality the rest of us see is a different story.)

Democrats are creative. 19 minutes after Trump was signed in they said he must be impeached. Since then they created this and created that but so far created nothing that worked. Now they are trying to use rumor, hearsay and feelings. Won't work but they will try.

Simply made up garbage. You have no proof for these ridiculous positions...

Emile provides us a very meaningful, thought provoking analysis.... NOT!
