The Silence of the Hacks

Paul Krugman – The New York Times:

The point is that you can’t understand the mess we’re in without appreciating not just the potential corruption of the president, but the unmistakable corruption of his party — a party so intent on cutting taxes for the wealthy, deregulating banks and polluters and dismantling social programs that accepting foreign subversion is, apparently, a small price to pay.

It’s telling how few Republicans can be heard speaking against the dishonesty and chaos of the Trump administration, and how few came out against the president’s statement about a free press.

Where, oh where are the patriots among the GOP? Do they love their president and party more than their country?
