The vile verbal attacks on President Trump and his family as well as Department of Homeland Security Secretary Nielsen, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders and Florida's Attorney General Pam Bondi have reached a fever pitch.
Since his election and inauguration, we have heard from what I call "The Inciters" led by Congresswoman Maxine Waters, actors Peter Fonda and Robert DeNiro, comediennes Kathy Griffin and Samantha Bee, pop singer Madonna and actress Ashley Judd. It's okay to protest when you have intelligent arguments to make, but these people — and others like them — don't appear to have brought forth any good arguments; except to say "Impeach! Impeach!" without any evidence of wrongdoing by the president.
Fonda expressed a desire that Trump's son Barron would be kidnapped and placed with pedophiles. Griffin proudly held a mask of the president's face dripping with fake blood. Bee called the First Lady a "feckless @#$%." (I'm sure most people are aware of the word she used). Madonna implied she wanted to blow up the White House. For that comment, she was paid a friendly visit by the Secret Service.
In recent weeks, women in Trump's administration have been provoked at restaurants and movie theaters. And we all thought the Democrats were the party that supported women's rights. What a laugh! I believe the regressive Dems are imploding with self-inflicted wounds. They're suffering from political seizures ever since the president's spectacular victory on Nov. 8, 2016.
Will the Democratic nominee for NY's 21st District rebuke these inflammatory remarks in the strongest terms possible? Let's hope Congresswoman Elise Stefanik will pose that question to Tedra Cobb in a debate.
