Our Congressional Cowards

Most Republican members of Congress are afraid to stand up to Donald Trump, because they might lose their job. Are you kidding me? Lose a job? You really won’t put your job on the line for the good of the country?  Despicable.

If you haven’t figured it out by now, Trump may as well declare himself Putin’s employee. Every decision he’s made of late empowers Putin and others like him and damages our allies. He’s a traitor, in my view.

But let me get back to our congressional cowards. God forbid standing up for the country cost them their cushy jobs.

Firefighters, law enforcement officers, paramedics,  EMTS, the military, Doctors without Borders and those cut from similar cloth, all these people put their lives on the line when they do their jobs. Yet our Congressional Cowards won’t put their job on the line.

You mean, I might not get re-elected and enjoy my perks? You mean, I might not be on TV? I might not be famous? 

Get up off your ass and fight back, fight for us. Remember us? We’re the Americans.

Trump knew he would leak to Russia

Did President Donald J. Trump ban American media from his meeting with Russian officials last week because he knew he would be providing them with classified information?

Russia state media Tass was allowed in  Trump’s Oval Office meeting with Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov and Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. Other than accumulating what I suspect is even more evidence of an American president betraying his country, Tass wasn’t going to turn him in to the American public, or Congress.

Clear thought leads to this observation. Trump is a media whore, he loves attention. Turing away attention — the American media in this instance — is contrary to his narcissistic instincts, but turn them away he did. No doubt he (and they) had concrete reasons for doing so.

One last observation. Sergei Lavrov comes as close to matching Trump’s color as anyone on the planet.
