Each day, I receive thousands of messages and emails. Below are three of them from the past 24 hours, and the response I’ve given to each. NOTE: I do not include the last name of the sender unless they explicitly request that I do so.

Over the past 24 hours, I have received so many emails, so today I answer 4.
1) From J.H.:
I am disappointed in our president. I’ve been a supporter, but to be attacked, is well, just a big bummer.
We wanted a good healthcare bill. No one is perfect. I understand that. The failure of the bill is not a big issue to me, just work to produce a good one. What I am disappointed in is our president not seeing that and, instead, sending tweets that if we don’t support the bill we are left with Obamacare. And since we didn’t support the bill we are Planned Parenthood enablers. This man has lost my support. You don’t lash out at your own supporters!!! If he wants support, he gives support to his base. It works both ways. He is not the man I thought he was.
DML: I have received many emails like yours. Hang in there.
2) From Stanley:
You are a total scumbag who thinks he knows it all but you know nothing. The healthcare bill was the fault of Republicans and Paul Ryan. The president did nothing wrong. He should not apologize or take accountability. Hannity says the president is at no fault and Hannity has far more viewers than you do. There are many of us who will start a movement on social media to dump you and just like the president will make America great again, we will prevail.
DML: Stan…, may I call you Stan? Here is what I do know…
Sean is a good guy, and I’ve been on his show more than once. He has his opinions, I have mine. He makes his predictions, I make mine. He gives his insight and advice, I offer mine. Who you, Stan, wish to listen to is up to you. I know Sean and I would agree on that one.
After the 2012 election, Sean told his viewers he had “evolved,” suddenly he supported a pathway to citizenship (aka amnesty). He has more viewers than me, so I guess that makes his idea a good one? Since then, it appears, he has evolved back to his old way of thinking about pathways. I bring this up because we all have times when our feelings change. Like Hannity, your feelings have changed. You thought I was a good guy but, now, I am a scumbag because I think the president should take accountability for his support of a bad bill.
Mary and my kids say I am not a scumbag, so I’m going to go with them on this one. Plus, I have my opinions which I share without fear or favor — I cannot be bought, nor will I put my ratings or “likes” before my honesty. That said, good luck with the ‘dump DML’ campaign — I’ll be here waiting for your results.
BTW, Hannity has been doing TV and radio for more than 20 years. I’ve been at it for a year, just FYI. You have a nice day, Stan.
3) From Jan:
Thank you for your walk n’ talks. After hearing you talk today about personal responsibility, I deduced you are right. No one else sees things the way you do. I guess you have been around the block a few times and have gotten wisdom along the way. Thanks for always being truthful even when you have to dissatisfying people in the process. You would be a good president, but we need you right where you are – to make the media great again!
DML: Thank you, Jan.
3) From Lee Edwin Bouton:
President Trump and I are the same age. If he were a millennial, then not taking responsibility a la Reagan could be understandable. If he had a less-than-average IQ, it could be understandable. If he had no common sense, no street smarts, no comprehension of political maneuverings, it could be understandable. But no such excuse could apply to Donald J. Trump. Furthermore, I find it totally inconceivable and unconscionable that he blames Freedom Caucus, Heritage Foundation, and other honorable, right-thinking, bedrock Trump supporters, like myself, who worked so hard to get him elected. On top of that he had the gall to bludgeon those principled Republican congressmen, who, in good conscience, could not support the heinous Ryan bill, with the dire warning of losing their seats in the next off-year election! What are we, chopped liver now? What explains how the man we voted for and who promised to drain the swamp ends up in bed with one of the most notorious RINO Republican swamp denizens of all? Sorry, but that’s not make America great again genius. That’s wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing swamp denizen genius. If I’m right, that explains a lot. Over the past 50 plus years of Republican Party activism, I’ve developed a gut feeling instinct about things like this. (FYI: I’ve been a Republican Party official at the community, county, and state levels, have good friends at the national level to keep me apprised of back-room action there, and I’ve hosted a local, cable community affairs TV show on which we interviewed many politicians.) Bottom line, I’ve seen this this scenario play out before. If I had Trump’s ear, I’d say: Straighten up and fly right or I’ll have a dire warning for you, sir. Namely, I and my fellow principled conservatives will be saying back at ya, when we dump Trump in ’20. Go DML! My name is Lee Edwin Bouton and you may post that. I stand by what I say.
DML: I love the fact that you are willing to use your full name. Says a lot about you.
