If there was a GOP hypocrisy meter it would have exploded yesterday. Look at what your tax dollars are paying to send out over Twitter on the official White House account. This is the civility they’re all screaming for?

(Say, do you suppose when Melania says “Be Best” she really means “Be BEST” Border Enforcement Security Task Force?)

Trump uses a platform like the White House Twitter account to make libelous comments about United States Senators, both female, and it goes without saying that Maxine Waters has been catching incoming fire. The Hill:

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) said the California Democrat’s comments do “not become somebody who’s in Congress,” arguing disciplinary action is appropriate.

“So we just introduced it, we have some co-sponsors, but what she did was to basically incite people to come after and attack members of the president’s cabinet,” Biggs told The Hill. “And also spread that out to more people.”

The measure calls on the congresswoman to resign, issue a formal apology to administration officials “for endangering their lives and sowing seeds of discord” and release a statement that neither harassment nor violence is an appropriate form of protest.

Waters defended her remarks on Monday, but encouraged peaceful protest.

“I have nothing to do with the way people decide to protest. Protest is the democratic way as long as it is peaceful,” Waters said. “I believe in peaceful protest. It is guaranteed to you in a democracy.”

So our two Senators “don’t know anything” and need a brochure sent from the White House to get them up to speed as they “support animals” and “criminals” due to their abysmal ignorance and Congresswoman Waters Is “endangering lives.”

I understood where Chuck Schumer was coming from last week when he attempted to be conciliatory and I praised his admonition to fight Trump at the ballot box. But I don’t feel that way today. We have reached a tipping point in the national discourse and we have to fight fire with fire — an instinct Schumer said he understood but is evidently loathe to employ. He’s wrong. If we don’t take a stance now, things are only going to get worse. This is beyond partisan politics. Trump is misusing the dignity of the White House to destroy his critics and a corrupt GOP majority in Congress is helping him.

As Charlie Pierce put it, “when they go low, cover them in elephant dung.” Amen to that.

Don’t even try it. Hell will be brought down on you is a sure bet. If anyone should be censured it should be the GOP (Government of Putin). They have proved who’s side they on and now it’s time to boot their asses out and not allow them to leave rich, but return the money they stole from the American people.
