When you’re a Republican elected official and you learn your new President was hand-picked by Russia. What do you do?
Do you recognize how complicit you were in ignoring the evidence always before you? You knew about the ties Paul Manafort the Trump former campaign manager had to Russia and that he’d accepted 12 million in cash from them. And you said nothing.
You heard Trump’s son talk about the extensive Russian investments into the Trump businesses. And you ignored it. You watched as Trump himself spread the Putin love. Taking his side against our own President and calling him a better leader.
Trump has acted for the last couple years like a man that someone in Russia had pictures of doing something horrible. We now know that’s likely to be true. I personally didn’t need to know about Trump paying prostitutes to pee on a hotel bed. It’s an image that may be hard to get out of my mind. Especially if I consider what Trump was doing at the time.
So if you’re a Republican that has discarded any thread of personal integrity as you bowed down to Trump. If you’ve ignored his inclusion of white supremacists among his advisors and a racist as the Attorney General. How do you ever retrieve the moral high ground, when the Trump voter even now will turn on you if you attempt anything. You knew he selected Putin’s friend as Secretary of State, and you only watched.
Will you continue to do as you’ve previously done which is to ignore and deny as you have since Trump won the Republican nomination? Many of you knew who and what he was before he won the nomination. You called him a racist, a con man, a liar and a fraud. You knew all these things to be true but praised him anyway.
So now you see these reports about Trump and Russia. If there’s anything you know is that these stories will not simply go away. New details will come out. Additional proof will appear. Perhaps a urine stained mattress with DNA?
This is a question you’ll have to answer for yourselves Republicans. I’ve got nothing for you. What are you going to do?
