Stand By Your Man

All the President’s MenThe flaws in Donald Trump’s character are hard not to notice. Yet the Republicans, following what must be the number one rule in their manual for how to put party above country and politics over national security, are steadfastly standing by their man. Their lying, corrupt, immoral conman.

The testimony yesterday at the House Impeachment Inquiry hearings from William Taylor, the chargé d’affaires of the U.S. embassy in Ukraine, was enough to blast through the ludicrous arguments of Trump and his cronies that there was no quid pro quo.

Taylor’s testimony spoke loud and clear that Trump was knowingly extorting the newly elected Ukrainian president to publicly commit to digging up dirt on a bogus corruption “scandal” involving Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

The fact that Trump still has almost universal support among Republican politicians is an American travesty.

    I guess because they’re all singing Stand By Your Man they must be girlie girls who don’t mind being cheated on and abused as long as they can get their nails done every week..

    It’s a Goddamned SHAME — that and what he’s done to the Kurds.

    It most certainly is a travesty. It also makes it glaringly apparent what REALLY matters to the republicans. It will take generations to come back from this.

      “It will take generations to come back from this.” If ever — especially if Trump doesn’t get impeached and removed from office and then wins the 2020 election. It’s remarkable how quickly one man, enabled by his sycophants, has been able to destroy the republic.

    Mitch (“The Bitch”) McConnell will always stand behind his man even when the fat man throws him under the bus to save his own flabby carcass.
