Any official or CEO worth 2 cents and looking out for their country or company certainly would do that.
But that, sadly, is NOT what we have here right now, & we have a party (GOP) full of enablers (willing to do anything for power, and some I believe will turn out to be “in” on the shenanigans). I do not buy for one bit that trump & pals are just ignorant to the ways of politics…that’s what briefings are for. No, this is a deliberate trashing of our laws, norms & culture, while they line their own pockets as fast as possible.
Have you ever heard the saying “birds of a feather flock together”? What we have are criminally corrupt types who don’t mind one bit if their employees are “flawed”…that gives them leverage to make sure they are & remain “loyal” & tight-lipped about the boss…much the way organized crime seems to operate. And I can hardly wait for the proof to come out in court & for all of them to be just a horrible chapter in history from which the gullible learn.
