What kind of crazy, fucked-up country do we live in where Republicans can’t even admit Trump’s tweets were racist?
One in which the right is functioning like a Mafia family – where it’s not about right or wrong – but protecting its members.
This is like asking a parent or sibling to turn in a family member for criminal behavior. The Unabomber’s brother turned Ted Kaczynski in, but I don’t think you’re gonna see that altruistic behavior these days.
There will be a day of reckoning. You don’t want a formal record of egregious behavior. Today everything’s tracked, there’s evidence everywhere, so heinous choices will surface, to your detriment. You know the old saying, “It wasn’t my fault, the boss made me do it!” The truth is today many bosses do require shady behavior, or else you get fired, but if you’re a Congressperson aren’t you held to a higher standard? Shouldn’t you be guided by morality?
Oh, you right wingers, don’t parse the language, that’s what’s wrong with our nation. Bill Clinton saying he didn’t have sex with that woman. He should have just admitted it and gone on. Hell, that’s Donald Trump style, and it’s been working for him, but it seems he finally stepped over the line.
How do I know this?
His tweets are headline news on Fox News and the Wall Street Journal.
Most of the time Trump’s bad behavior is buried in these right wing outlets – if it appears at all – but this is too big a story to ignore.
Then again, if you’re racist, you take Trump’s side.
Meanwhile, the above news is eclipsed by the efforts of Al Green.
No, not the singer/preacher, rather a House member, who filed articles of impeachment Tuesday night.
Who do we blame?
Because she’s lost control of the narrative. I don’t see how we impeach Trump for his racist tweets, but this is what happens when you don’t impeach him for his law-breaking evidenced in the Mueller Report.
Oh, don’t get your knickers in a twist you righties. Continue reading
