We've witnessed in less than a year how damaging Trump's presidency has been to America's reputation at home and abroad.
Now the people of Alabama are ready to send to the US Senate a lawless man who was kicked off of the state supreme court and who has been accused by several credible women of molesting them when they were teenagers. The current GOP is willing to overlook Moore's disgusting behavior so that they can keep a senate seat.
When Moore wins the senate election in Alabama (and there's no question IMM that he will win), the current GOP will have sealed its reputation, for a least a generation, as being the party of a self-admitted sexual assaulter (Trump) and an accused child molester (Roy Moore).
We've already seen that young people have abandoned the party and the GOP is losing women's support with each new poll taken.
Jennifer Rubin, WaPo:
"Now that Trump has been shown to be just as ignorant, unhinged, racist, incompetent, authoritarian and unfit as his critics said, the Trump voters (sporting an uncanny willingness to deny reality or just lie) don’t seem so interesting; they just sound wacky. Rather than the repositories of moral truth, they sound mean-spirited and selfish. They can’t see the real victims in society because they are convinced they’re the real victims. "
Amy Davidson Sorkin/New Yorker:
"Donald Trump, Roy Moore, and the Degradation of the G.O.P. In less than a year, the President, with help from the Alabama Senate candidate, has so damaged the Party that it may never recover. What would they tolerate in order to secure the fifty-first vote? Put another way, if the Party is willing to give its money and its credibility to protect a candidate accused of molesting teen-agers, what might it talk itself into doing to protect the President? Robert Mueller may be interested in the answer."
Meanwhile, the GOP's self-admitted sexual assaulter and serial liar continues his pathology of incessant lying each time he speaks to his supporters:
"Donald Trump makes 21 false claims in Missouri speech about tax plan The Star’s running tally of every false thing the president of the United States of America has said since his inauguration — an average of 2.9 false claims per day."
Nothing good will come of it.
"The pre-Trump Republican Party is dead; the Zombie Trump Party now lives in its stead, devoid of principle, feasting on fear and rage, foreign to moral framing." --Charles Blow
