Opinion: Letters defending Trump almost don't exist anymore

Ever since we published a full page of letters from supporters of Donald Trump and other Conservatives after the November 3 elections, several readers have asked what the people who voted for the president are now saying after nearly two months of his constant conspiracy theorization would overthrow the choice, indifferent to pandemic victims and questionable pardons.
The answers, as far as I can tell, are not much, or at least much less than before. Sure, we still get posts repeating the presidential false electoral conspiracies, but these are not seriously considered for publication for the same reason that letters supporting flat-earthherism are not seriously considered for publication be considered. After the election, the letters defending the president's actions and political positions were reduced to a minimum. On certain issues, like his recent pardons, they are almost non-existent.

There is still the occasional letter from a pro-Trump reader expressing animus towards Democrats, but when it comes to defending him on certain matters after his election loss, Trump appears to be on his own.
Los Angeles-based Roy Friedland wonders what Trump supporters are thinking:
It seems to me that now is the right time to print another round of letters from the Trump crowd because I can't possibly be alone wondering how you feel about your leader now.
After a few weeks of further revealing his true self - by undermining our democracy and pardoning the crooks and liars of a soccer team - many questions arise: is Trump still your law and order man? Do you still think the virus is a joke? Are you still drinking the Kool-Aid? Or did the Big Gulp finally - finally! - been emptied?
And where is Scott Jennings? Are there still evangelicals brave enough to defend and rationalize the immoral and corrupt behavior of this president? I really want to know.
Fontana's Charles Blankson believes Trump is punishing the whole country:
In his final days as president, Trump stands by all Americans, including the 74 million people who voted for him.
If he'd been really honest that the COVID-19 relief bill didn't have enough aid money for hard-working Americans suffering from the pandemic, all he had to do was pick up the phone and instruct his henchmen in Congress to make changes.
He didn't care then and he doesn't care now. All he does is punish Americans for rejecting him and denying him a second term.
Sherman Oaks' Frances Terrell Lippman Accuses Trump of Improving Justice:
Those who uttered the famous words "Crime doesn't pay off" obviously never knew Donald Trump. His list of crooked pardoned pals reads like a who's who of Larceny Inc.
Trump's abuse of the pardon is a terrible stain on our democracy and a mockery of our judicial system. As the President shows, it is not what you know, but who you know.
