Trump Disgraces America Every Day
 
Today's example: Steven Bradbury, the "torture memos" man, appears before a Senate committee--because Trump has nominated him for a high position.

Cases like this make an excellent moral litmus test--and a bad show to the civilized world....

Actually, the Dem level of insanity and willingness to deflect and obstruct grows every day, and their selective indignation knows no bounds. This is the same "torture" that Dems had no issues with in 2002.

Four top members of Congress, including now-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, got a close look at CIA overseas detention sites and interrogation techniques in September 2002 and offered no challenge to their legitimacy, according to a news article out Sunday.

On the contrary, at least two lawmakers involved in the briefing that day questioned whether the CIA was pushing hard enough, even after hearing the details of the now widely criticized technique known as waterboarding, two U.S. officials told The Washington Post.

"The briefer was specifically asked if the methods were tough enough," one official is quoted saying.


With one known exception, no formal objections were raised by the lawmakers briefed about the harsh methods during the two years in which waterboarding was employed, from 2002 to 2003, said Democrats and Republicans with direct knowledge of the matter. The lawmakers who held oversight roles during the period included Pelosi and Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.) and Sens. Bob Graham (D-Fla.) and John D. Rockefeller IV (D-W.Va.), as well as Rep. Porter J. Goss (R-Fla.) and Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan).

If those people flunk the test, they flunk the test*. Obama passed the test, Trump is taking us backwards.


* although what they knew and when they knew it is a matter of some dispute: http://www.factcheck.org/2009/05/pel...tured-denials/

BTW whell, how about you? Do you think Stephen Bradbury should get the job? Yes or no?

Okay, today's second example (I'm afraid there's no actual limit to the number of daily examples).

Today Trump left 'petty and vindictive' behind, far behind....

Reaction from right and left has been dismay and condemnation:

Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, wrote on Twitter, “Mr. President, your tweet was beneath the office and represents what is wrong with American politics, not the greatness of America.”
I will choke before I can call him Mr. President.

Quote:

And a spokesman for NBC News, Mark Kornblau, wrote on Twitter: “Never imagined a day when I would think to myself, ‘It is beneath my dignity to respond to the President of the United States.’ ”
Operative words, beneath my dignity says it all for me.

He truly is an embarrassment to every single person in the United States Of America.

What is just as unsettling, the fact his core supporters love this. What more even expect it, proud of his actions. See nothing at all wrong, get over it no one cares........:confused:WTF!!

SAD!:(
