Stand up to the bully
Back in the 1950s, the Donald of the day was Joe McCarthy. He intimidated everyone into silence and no one had the backbone to stand up to him. When he was finally exposed as the bully he was, most of Congress was sorry it had not had the profiles in courage to speak out against him.
In Germany there was fear and silence in the 1930s and no one saw what that silence would bring them.
It seems French Hill, Tom Cotton and the rest of our delegation follow the crowd and brag on what a great president Trump is. They will one day be like the silent Congress of Joe McCarthy and wish they had had the backbone to speak up. Trump has intimidated judges, failed to pay what he owed to many small businesses, reportedly given classified information to Russians in the White House, possibly obstructed justice, embarrassed our country on the world stage, acted like a fifth-grade bully to our allies, lied so much he has conditioned people to it, and put us at risk of nuclear war with his name-calling. Yet French Hill, Tom Cotton and the rest of our delegation apparently still value their positions over the health and safety of our country.
The day is coming when the tide will turn; more brave people like John McCain, Jeff Flake and Bob Corker will speak out, and we will remind French, Tom and the others where they stood and where they put our country in relation to their positions. KIRK DIXON
