In what universe is it acceptable for Donald Trump to deny the American press entry into the Oval Office while allowing two Russian emissaries and Russian media to enter? These individuals represented Vladimir Putin, who ordered the hacking of our election and attempted to subvert our democratic form of government.
They were welcomed by Trump as long-lost comrades and given classified information, endangering those who risk their lives pursuing the intelligence that protects our homeland.
Mr. Trump is furious about “leaks.” However, which is more dangerous – a person who reveals the egregious actions and statements of this president, or the president himself divulging highly classified information to an adversary?
It is time for our legislators to open their eyes to the obvious and cease being enablers of a president who has shown himself to be a chronic liar and mentally and psychologically unstable.
Republicans are the only line of defense against this president’s dangerous actions. However, they have rejected reason and good judgment in exchange for Trump’s signature on legislation that furthers their agenda.
Time will determine the price we will all pay for their failure to prioritize allegiance to our country before blind fidelity to their party.
