I heard poorly rated @Morning_Joe speaks badly of me (don`t watch anymore). Then how come low I.Q. Crazy Mika, along with Psycho Joe, came…..to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year`s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!
This is the tweet heard around the world, it`s been denounced by commentators, pundits, politicians, intellectuals and everyday people of every political persuasion.
Even some GOP lawmakers were finally compelled to condemn Trump`s misogyny. Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and GOP Sen. Susan Collins of Maine spoke out in no uncertain terms against Trump`s sickening tweet. You`d think that these female politicians would be joined by a chorus of sister GOP lawmakers appalled by our president`s ad hominem attack. But too many Republican congresswomen and senators were silent in the face of misogyny and some even defended the indefensible.
Melania Trump`s communications director Stephanie Grisham released this statement: As the First Lady has stated publicly in the past, when her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder.
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel defended Trump`s reprehensible tweet saying “Today, the president acted like a human, and he pushed back.”
Deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders vigorously defended the bully-in-chief, not backing down an inch.
The First Lady has made it her crusade to put an end to online bullying, she can start by speaking out against the biggest bully in the world. Ronna McDaniel is correct, the president acted like a human — a despicable and petty human being. Sarah Huckabee Sanders should be reminded that her job description doesn`t include making excuses for and enabling the worst personality traits of her boss.
Enough is enough, the female Republicans in Congress should demand a meeting with the president. They should make it abundantly clear to him that his sick tweets are endangering his agenda and that he is putting at risk their support.
I don`t know about the Republicans in Congress, but I want to be on the record speaking out against Trump`s insanity. Indeed, it`s incumbent upon all of us, of every political party, to speak truth to power, and condemn Trump`s toxic tweets.
