An editorial by E.J. Dionne Jr. of the Washington Post caught my eye today (Nov. 26). He points out how favorably President Trump views autocratic governments, with his willingness to overlook the Saudi leader's involvement in the killing and dismembering of a vocal critic. Perhaps in the dog-eat-dog world that Trump lives in all is forgiven for the sake of the almighty dollar, putting aside any form of moral accountability.
Some might say, as Ted Cruz does, it’s just hating the president so get over it. However, this is the same senator who in 2016 labeled Trump as a “pathological liar,” “utterly amoral,” “a narcissist at a level I don’t think this country’s ever seen” and a “serial philanderer.”
Has the Republican party swung so far to the right that this kind of about face is now somehow OK?
Who are we as a nation? In my nearly 60 years I have never witnessed anything close to the divide we see these days. Our motto used to be "E Pluribus Unum," out of many one, now it seems to have devolved into “We’ve got ours now get out and don’t come back.”
