Richard Cohen speaks the truth: the problem has never been Trump. It is the deeply cynical Liars for Jesus and gaggle of self-serving crooks who enabled a clown that would otherwise still be starring in a stupid reality show to endanger the US and the whole world. It is the low-information dolts they catechized to line find in this orange messiah the embodiment of their vengeful dreams. It is liars like Pence:
On any given day, Pence will do his customary spot-on imitation of a bobblehead. Standing near Trump in the Oval Office, he will nod his head robotically as the president says one asinine thing after another.
He is the most prominent and highest-ranked of President Trump’s lackeys. Like with all of them, Pence’s touching naivete and trust are routinely abused. He vouches for things that are not true — no talk of sanctions between Mike Flynn and the Russians, for instance, or more recently the reason James B. Comey was fired as FBI director. In both instances, the president either lied to him or failed to tell him the truth.
The result was the same: The vice president appeared clueless.He was among a perfidious group of political opportunists who pushed Trump’s candidacy while having to know that he was intellectually, temperamentally and morally unfit for the presidency. They stuck with him as he mocked the disabled, belittled women, insulted Hispanics, libeled Mexicans and promiscuously promised the impossible and ridiculous — all that “Day One” nonsense like how the wall would be built and Mexico would pay for it.
From most of the Republican Party comes not a whisper of rebuke. The congressional leadership is inert, cowed, scurrying to the White House for this or that ceremonial picture.
For all of them, an accounting is coming. When they are asked by history what they did during the Trump years, the worst of them will confess that they bobbled their heads like dumb dolls, while the best will merely say they kept their heads down….
He and a lot of other Trump minions better start lawyering up:
PS: If your only response to the facts related in video is an appeal to the Genetic Fallacy, you are in for a major shock when reality bring this administration crashing down.
