Well, there should be more people doing this! Of course, the cloistered minions of Trump’s inner circle are now “mind-melding” about this issue, trying to come up with some scheme about how to address the matter without forcing the “Liar in Chief” to admit, “I was wrong. I should not have posted that on Twitter.” Of course, they have on the table a very successful ruse with the Trump evasion of his insanity on the “Obama is not an American” by suggesting Trump hold a brief press conference and succinctly announce, “Former President Obama did not hack Trump Towers.” The press would dutifully lie down, supinely, and not ask for further explanation of why this lunacy should have ever been uttered from the mouth, or Twitter, of the President of the United States.
Here, once again, the GOP has an opportunity to demonstrate their moral and spiritual bankruptcy. One of the Senators from my beloved home state of Arkansas, Tom Cotton, this morning, demonstrated the same bankruptcy arguing that the GOP should not follow through with their promise to “tank” Obamacare because of the risk of not being reelected in 2018. See, the issue on the table is not, “What does the country need?” but “How can I and my cohorts stay in power?” Certainly, all politicians have this desire to maintain power but the GOP, given their spiritual density and lack of verbal finesse, are completely over-the-top on the matter. Their only concern is maintaining primacy and they can’t even be subtle about it.
Our political arena now offers all of us such a glimpse into the human heart, mine and yours. None of us are without a tad of this utter chicanery and moral depravity. I’m reminded of Shakespeare’s question, “Give every man his just desert and who shall escape a whipping?”
