>was told as a young child that he would be slow mentally
If he's been told that much of his life (and I have no reason to believe that they were correct), maybe that's why he's so quick to assume that anybody who criticizes an ACTION of his, must really hate HIM.
Criticism of actions and personal hate are two entirely different things.
I can like somebody as a person very much, yet intensely dislike something that they do.
Since 99.9% of us have never met Drummond, I'd say that NONE of us really hate him. But he seems to be convinced otherwise.
