CMR loses moral compass

What would Cathy McMorris Rodgers say if a man groped her daughter in public? She would say, “It is never appropriate to condone unwanted sexual advances …” She would not condemn such actions and she would still support that man to become her country’s leader though “without enthusiasm.” After all, as Trump says, “When you’re a star, they let you do it. I can do anything.”

One wonders if there is anything he could do to lose her support. When you accept and support a man’s actions with your vote, what does that say about your morals? Many in the Republican Party have said they will not vote for or support Trump. They will not compromise their morals.

That is not an issue for Cathy. She rationalizes that Trump’s use of our bankruptcy laws — six times — to stiff the small businessmen who helped build his empire proves he is a business genius and is therefore the better candidate. Can you vote for a candidate who has lost her moral compass without losing yours?
