Letter to the Editor: Trump support called "moral crisis"


August 24, 2017

To the Editor:

Tammy Wynette once crooned a tune entitled, Stand By Your Man. Sadly, even though we have an incompetent, morally vacant man as our President, Cathy McMorris Rodgers stands by him.

Some Republican leaders have had enough and are speaking out and saying that this president is doing great harm to our America. Senator Bob Corker said, “He has not demonstrated stability or comprehension. Our nation is going to go through great peril.”

Arnold Schwartzenegger, a fellow Republican, said Trump had a moral responsibility to the country that defeated Hitler’s armies to show that America has no place for Nazi flags. He said, “The President needs to send an unequivocal message that he will not stand for hate and racism.”

Republican analyst Steve Schmidt’s comment about the Republicans in Congress who continue to support Trump was to the point, “They’re cowards. You can see the yellow streak running down their backs.”

This moral crisis in our country goes beyond McMorris Rodgers’ minor legislation, her photo ops around the district and her small, select “unity meetings.” She is hoping we will accept her deflection and allow her to ignore this crisis. We will not. She may be on the Trump train, supporting her man no matter what he says or does, but we Americans are not. If the person who is to represent us can’t rebuke Trump’s incompetence, bigotry and racism, we will rebuke McMorris Rodgers in 2018.
