As Shareblue Media’s Executive Editor Jess McIntosh noted on MSNBC Tuesday, shunning Moore while supporting Trump isn’t going to fly.
“As long as they continue to prop up that kind of a man as the leader of their party, women aren’t going to buy it, at all. Full stop.”
It’s sad, but it’s pretty rich to see the entire Republican party come out and start to denounce this kind of behavior.
Donald Trump has been accused by 17 different women, and you don’t even have to believe them, because the president admitted it himself. As long as they continue to prop up that kind of a man as the leader of their party, women aren’t going to buy it at all.
But the self-professed sexual misconduct by Trump is equally demanding of such repudiation, if McConnell and Ryan truly do care about victims of abuse and abhor those who commit such acts. Certainly neither of them has called for, or will ever call for, Trump to be removed from office over his despicable behavior.Join The Conversation
