Enough is enough!

 

The Republican hypocrisy must end for our democracy to survive.

Had Hillary Clinton become president and allowed her daughter to sit in a G-20 meeting, what would be the reaction from the right?

The screeching of “traitor” and “impeach her” from Republican senators and Fox News would be heard on Mars.

It’s time for Republicans to stop putting party ahead of what is actually good for the country.

And President Donald Trump is not good for the country.

Speaking of the G-20, did you notice how Trump was shunned by everyone there?

This person has singlehandedly given up America’s role as a world leader — and in just a few short months.

He has embarrassed America and shocked the world with his buffoonish behavior.

He can’t find his limo. He doesn’t pay attention when others are speaking or walks away absentmindedly. And he pushes other leaders out of the way for photo-ops.

And regarding the reports about his campaign’s ties with Russia, Trump claims it’s all lies and fake news.

So there were no meetings at all with the Russians?

Not with ambassadors?

Not with bankers?

So how did his son, Donald Jr., staffer Paul Manafort and son-in-law Jared Kushner meet with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer in June 2016?

Meanwhile, Trump — better known as Russian Agent Orange — asks Russian President Vladimir Putin if he interfered with our elections, and when Putin said no, that’s good enough for him.

At least Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham got it right when he said Trump’s meeting with Putin hurt his ability to govern America by “forgiving and forgetting and empowering” Russia.

The Russian ties are real and documented.

Regardless of party, it’s time to call Trump’s obvious link to Russia what it is.

It is betraying one’s country.

It is treason.
