How could I not after hearing Trump's assault on African nations and Haiti?
MR. TRUMP: "HAVE YOU NO SENSE OF DECENCY"; NO REGARD FOR THE TRUTH?
SEPTEMBER 17, 2016
"Until this moment, Senator, I think I never fully gauged your cruelty or your recklessness. Have you no sense of decency?"
Joseph Welch to Senator Joseph McCarthy, June 9, 1954
These were the words which went through my mind yesterday as I heard Donald Trump acknowledge that President Obama was born in the United States after years of fueling the Birther movement with no apology or explanation. Not only that he went on to blame Hillary Clinton for starting the rumor and claimed that he had ended it. Such outrageous disregard for the truth is mind-boggling.
But that wasn't all. On the same day he recklessly incites a crowd saying that Hillary Clinton wants to get rid of all guns (of course a lie) and goes on to ask bombastically -- why doesn't she take away all the guns from her security guards and we'll see what happens to her.
Mr. Trump: have you no sense of decency? No regard for the truth?
CLEARLY THE ANSWER IS "NO".
Any corporate executive saying what Trump has said would be fired.
