The inability of Republican elected officials to stand up for law enforcement or speak out against a corrupt administration is a troubling trend. The GOP typically boasts about supporting “law and order” yet Republicans continually enable Donald Trump to break laws and seed disorder at the FBI and US Department of Justice.
We are living in a world of circular logic. We have white supremacists, Nazis, and Russian bots creating online propaganda with hashtags to release a Congressional memo that is simple regurgitated BS from white supremacists, Nazis, and Russian bots. Then the sane people in this country from John McCain to Jeff Flake and folks of all political persuasions try to hopelessly explain the complexities of the legal system, while the right-wing media machine of far-right radio, suspect websites and a certain “news” channel that report on a meaningless memo elevating it to be meaningful somehow.
With the Nunes memo now elevated the Trump Administration and the majority of elected Republicans loyal to him have created a false equivalency to object to any findings Mueller and the special counsel might come to. We’ve seen this play before, GOP family values voices suddenly disappear when Trump has sex with a porn star and pays her off to be quiet. And now the “law and order” voices are disappearing when Trump fires FBI Director James Comey, Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, etc…
You’d think family man, “law and order” man, Steve Daines would be up in arms against Trump. Daines actually called out his best friend Greg Gianforte to apologize and admit guilt when Gianforte took “law and order” into his own hands and assaulted a reporter.
In Trumpworld, Daines is not actually loyal to “The Donald.” Don’t get me wrong, Daines will be a Trump apologist until he can no longer give himself and fellow millionaires giant tax cuts. But Daines is actually more loyal to Mike Pence. These two sit around all day, daydreaming about “helping” people by gay conversion therapy, in between votes to give the Koch Brothers a billion dollar annual tax cut.
So, Steve Daines, where do you stand? Do you stand with the FBI? With Law Enforcement, blue lives don’t matter anymore? Or, do you stand with the indicted members of the Trump organization, campaign, and administration?
Also, what the hell is up with Seb Gorka? Isn’t this man a Hungarian Nazi from a Bond film? Why does Steve Daines follow an anti-semite from Europe who has ties to Nazis and white nationalism? What are Daines’ thoughts on this disgraced Trump aide and Breitbart Editor Steve Bannon? How about Kremlin Advisor Carter Page? Russian Rug Seller Paul Manafort? What does the Senator think of Smirnoff Swigging George Papadopoulos?
One last question Senator, what are your thoughts on Sheriff Clarke and his speech in Billings? Will you attend, will you hold a Town Hall in Billings if you do attend explaining your feelings on law enforcement and the FBI?
So many questions, so much corruption, time is running out for Steve Daines to cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.
