Hot Summer, Hot Mess
This summer, Jean Carroll became the 16th woman to accuse Donald J. Trump of some kind of sexual misconduct and the 2nd to accuse him of rape. The first, his first ex-wife Ivana, made the allegation under oath during a divorce proceeding in 1989. She later recanted after the settlement.
Republicans and Democrats in Washington have been conspicuously mum about Carroll's claim. They all seem to be taking a "tell me something I don't know" attitude. Deep down inside, Republicans know Trump is a despicable narcissist with no moral compass, but they don't care. Who needs a moral compass when they got Gorsuch, Kavanaugh, and tax cuts. Democrats know he's a despicable narcissist with no moral compass, but they don't care either. Who needs a moral compass when they have no compass at all.
Trumps classless response: "She's not my type." Pathetic.
Long time U.S. Senator John Tower (Rep-TX) once said about Philippine dictator Ferdinand Marcos, "He may be a real son-of-a-bitch, but he's OUR son-of-a-bitch." It appears the sentiment once applied to scumbag 3rd world dictators hits a little closer to home nowadays.
I know, maybe I should have given a "THIS IS POLITICAL" warning at the outset. But is this really political? If so, my bad.
