Trump Report Card: Tripped by Roy Moore, Consumer Board Move
From the Washington Examiner, by John Zogby
Judge Roy Moore may be innocent until proven guilty but at least eight women, along with multiple local police and mall security guards, regard him as creepy beyond any reasonable doubt. Even if Alabamians elect him on December 12 it is not certain that he will be seated in the U.S. Senate because of the strong antipathy of Republican leaders and members.
In a week where the dominant news is again about the breakdown of patriarchy in a number of institutions, where the once mighty have been disgraced by degrading, immoral, and illegal behavior toward women, especially those over whom they held power, President Trump has chosen to defend Judge Moore for only one reason — he needs his vote to try to pass his promised tax cuts.
To this president there is a moral equivalency between tax cuts that will explode the national debt, will probably not lead to any significant investment, and will benefit the extremely wealthy — versus the long overdue coming to terms with systematic violation of women in the workplace and society. This is an issue that is epochal in its significance and the president not only willfully missed it, he stands counter to the progression of history — and to heroic women who have spoken up. This transcends yet another red line in North Korea or a conversation with President Vladimir Putin.
When I was a teacher for many years, my rule was that you had to show up for the final to earn an F. Otherwise you got a zero. The president did not show up and is not even worthy of a failure this week.
