Local readers continue to send us screenshots and reactions to Presidents Trumps recent visit to Great Falls. Some of the comments are positive and in support of the President while others are downright vile and vicious in their hatefulness. Here’s an example of both from the Tribunes own Facebook page:
What we find interesting here is that former and longtime Tribune “reporter” Peter Johnson associates himself with and “Likes” Jen Lynns ignorant and hateful suggestion that our fellow Great Falls citizens who attended the Trump rally are inbred. Really?
It is troubling, though not surprising, that Mr. Johnson is so cavalier in his willingness to identify with and display such open hatred and disdain for his friends and neighbors, folks who at one time trusted him to be an objective news reporter.

We don’t take issue with people who criticize and call to account elected officials at any level, in fact we highly encourage it and actively participate in it. But unfortunately the recent trend is to excoriate, demean, attack and insult regular local Great Falls citizens who voice any level of support for Trump or any other official in his administration.
We’ll conclude with these gems from our own E-City Beat Facebook page (you can read the whole thread here). Just look at the arrogance, hatred, and disdain dripping from local anti-Trump “resistance” member Christopher Horners repulsive comments.
“Tammy Evans, Trump does collect stupid trash like you though…Another White Trash Falls Trump acolyte…Jon still works at Albertsons, and is in the underachievers party of Trump, lol, lmao You look like his mom, are you his mom defending your fat, stupid son.”
“I need someone to fetch me my groceries and do the shit work. I’m just glad it’s you and not me. Didn’t I see you in your pickup with that huge confederate flag driving down the street. Do you know how embarrassing it is to tell people I actually live in this ghetto town?”
Is this what we’ve come to, Great Falls?
