Dear Editor:

Ref: putting lipstick on a pig.

I can’t believe how our president is twisting truth about the disaster of our evacuation from Afghanistan.

Years ago I had an employee who made several bad decisions and then tried to explain the resulting problem as not their fault. Our president is doing the same thing by discounting earlier warnings and advice and being stubborn plus not owning up to his mistakes.
