Republican President Donald Trump on November 20 granted Bill Clinton total absolution from all charges of having gotten away with acts of sexual assaults and even rape. Addressing the Roy Moore issue, Trump declared that Moore “totally denies” allegations of inappropriate relationships with teenage and that Moore’s election would be better than having a Democrat in the seat.
Every absolving word Trump spoke applies equally to Bill Clinton–who also denies the charges made against him by various females. Americans can now apply the same standard and fully support Clinton while totally ignoring the sex assault allegations.
Thank you, President Trump, for absolving Clinton and sending a strong message to Republicans to stop trying to make a big deal out of those charges. Not only does Clinton deny them–they are 20 to 25 years old! Clearly, making Clinton even more innocent than Moore and making it even more imperative to stop bringing up the charges.
We Georgians eagerly await the reaction of our Republican elected officials, Senators Isakson and Perdue and Reps. Loudermilk and Handel, to Trump’s granting a blanket absolution to Moore and Clinton.
Trump’s supportive words for choosing a child molester over his Democratic opponent reinforce the increasing tribalism of Republicans, who have made clear they put Party, politics, and self above any moral considerations. Republicans like Isakson, Perdue, Loudermilk, and Handel long ago abandoned the Ten Commandments, the Golden Rule, and common human decency to elect Trump and keep him in the White House.

As conservative columnist David Gerson, former GW Bush speechwriter, recently wrote: “This is, with a few exceptions, a group of people for whom truth, political honor, ethics and integrity mean nothing…We are witnessing what happens when right-wing politics becomes untethered from morality and religion.”
