Trump Defends Spousal Abuse! Act Now!
By Donna Smith, Executive Director – Progressive Democrats of America
We at Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) are once again appalled and disgusted by Trump. We’ve been pushed beyond our limits by his casual sexist, racist, warlike and other horrendous behavior. His ongoing defense of child sexual abuse by Roy Moore, spousal abuse by not one but two White House staffers, and his own outrageous behavior crosses the lines of decency into criminality. If you feel as we do, we hope you’ll use this action alert to tell Congress to stand up for common decency.
We’ve set up this alert to make it very easy for you to send the following message to both of your Senators and to your Representative:
Please join me taking a stand for common decency. Trump’s ongoing defense of child sexual abuse by Roy Moore, spousal abuse by not one but two White House staffers, and his own outrageous behavior all cross the lines of decency into criminality.
In the White House on Monday, November 27, 2017, Donald Trump honored WWII Navajo Code-talkers by slamming Senator Elizabeth Warren as “Pocahontas.” What that had to do with honoring these Native American veterans is unclear. He didn’t care. He has done that before. He will do it again.
I am appalled by his behavior. Some may want to dismiss it as a distraction. I cannot. Trump’s continual bashing of Sen. Warren with what he knows is a racial, cultural and gender-based slur exposes what he thinks and who he believes is and isn’t deserving of respect. Anyone who does not believe that his mindset plays into what he intends to do in policy has not been paying enough attention.
I stand with Sen. Warren and I am concerned that as the 2018 election campaigns heat up, any incumbent or candidate who is non-white or female will be targeted by Trump for insults, slurs and other attacks. This is unacceptable. Equality matters. Common decency matters. I demand better.
I call on you to censure Donald Trump for this latest outrage and other serious personal misconduct.
