Roy Moore, (R) refuses to step out of the Alabama senate race, after credible allegations of sexual misconduct over the years. Republicans in Washington, DC seem a bit flustered, and would rather see a different candidate, one with fewer character flaws, run. Well, well, well.The Trump White House does have a weapon with which to deal with members of Congress and the Senate when it finds itself at odds with representatives of the American people. Does anyone remember the comments of John Kelly, Trump's Chief of Staff, when he recently attacked Florida Democrat Congresswoman Frederica Wilson? Ms. Wilson thought Donald Trump's remarks to one of her constituents, a gold star widow, were crass and unfeeling. After she said this, the attack from the White House ensued, despite the fact that Wilson represents American citizens.
The solution seems simple: the Trump White House should just badmouth the candidates and representatives it does not like. After all, it is okay to treat an honorable Democrat that way; why not a dishonorable Republican? The truth is, Donald Trump and his staff should not interfere with the electoral choices of any American citizens, but he does, from time to time. He attacks Democrats, and he attacks Republicans who put their constituencies ahead of the Trump agenda. So why not denounce the behavior of someone who is immoral? Roy Moore has a habit of getting removed from office, and does not appear to care about the law, or the American people. What's wrong with speaking about these things, in addition to current allegations, from the White House? Or is the White House only a launch for attacks on decent people, not on those who actually violate the law?
Perhaps the Chief of Staff likes Roy Moore's hat better than he like's Frederica Wilson's hat. Yeah; that's it. Seriously......if the Republican party has problems with individuals such as Roy Moore, it should start putting Americans ahead of agendas that are not good for America. As for those Christian Republicans who keep defending Roy Moore, perhaps someone should ask them why they would stand with someone who truly isn't above reproach.
