“We wish him well, he worked very hard. We found out about it recently and I was surprised by it, but we certainly wish him well and it’s a tough time for him. He did a very good job when he was in the White House. And we hope he has a wonderful career and he will have a great career ahead of him. But it was very sad when we heard about it and certainly he’s also very sad now. He also, as you probably know says he’s innocent and I think you have to remember that.”
“There is no recovery for someone falsely accused — life and career are gone. Is there no such thing any longer as Due Process?”
The aspiring dictator whines about the lack of due process for his thugs and molesters, as he threatens his political opponent with jail and urges his loyal cult to chant, “Lock her up!”
Their blind rage and hatred conceals the very idea of hypocrisy from their duped authoritarian brains. And it shows.
Yes, like starting a war based on lies, ignoring due process is OK if you are Republican. Just like molesting and abusing women and children. Locking up political opponents without due process is fine with them. Firing dedicated law enforcement professionals for lack of loyalty is fine with them.
Of course, this makes them fascists to the core.
“Alternative facts” from their Cult of Right-wing Authoritarian Personalities are all they need. Like good little fascists, they embrace their CRAP that blames, accuses, and fuels their hatred for those not in their cult.
Fascism always needs scapegoats. They are usually liberals, minorities, educators, journalists, unions, and others not loyal to their CRAP.
That far Right propaganda is all they need to know. They are well indoctrinated on whom to blame and hate. And it shows.
If the rule of law or American values and institutions stand in the way of their Dear Leader, they will be viciously attacked. Now the fascists in the White House and Congress are busy attacking anybody in the FBI who is not loyal to their precious Orange Fuhrer. Meanwhile thugs and sex offenders like Roy Moore and Robert Porter are praised and supported.
Loyalty to the Party of Trump and Kim Jong Don is paramount. Like every totalitarian regime in history they demand loyalty to the party and to the Leader from law enforcement agencies.
The Party of Trump and their authoritarian leader are an existential threat to our safety, our health, our equality, our freedom, and to democracy itself.
And should we need reminding, this is how these corrupt assholes roll:
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was created after the financial crisis to protect Americans from being ripped off by financial firms.
As a congressman, Mike Mulvaney called the agency a "sick sad joke." He drafted legislation to abolish it. So people at the bureau were shocked when the president appointed him to run this consumer protection agency.
Under his leadership, the CFPB delayed a new payday lending regulation from going into effect and dropped an investigation into one payday lender that contributed to Mulvaney's campaign. In another move that particularly upset some staffers, the new boss also dropped a lawsuit against an alleged online loan shark called Golden Valley Lending. The suit says the lender illegally charges people up to 950 percent interest rates.
"As a congressman he took $62,000 plus from the payday lenders. And now at the CFPB he's doing their bidding," says Karl Frisch, executive director of the consumer group Allied Progress.
To pay for the tax cuts for corporations and fellow billionaires, Trump is now advocating $1.7 trillion in cuts to social programs like Medicare, which he said he'd never cut. His cult couldn't care less.
They really don’t give a damn about the US or the American people. And that shows too.
