Do you want a good idea of the lunacy attached to this year’s presidential election campaign?
Try this on for size.
It’s making the rounds on social media, but I’ll share it here.
Just suppose Hillary Rodham Clinton was mother to five children from three husbands. Suppose, also, that she had cheated on two of her husbands and then bragged about it. What do you suppose would be the reaction from conservatives?
They’d be outraged. They’d vilify the Democratic nominee for flouting the very “family values” to which conservatives adhere.
Why, then, aren’t political conservatives as outraged that the Republican nominee, Donald Trump, has produced five children with three wives, cheated openly on two of them and then boasted about it in public?
Gosh. There’s that terrible “double standard” so prevalent these days.
Trump keeps assailing Hillary Clinton’s husband because of his own alleged indiscretions — and the Clinton haters cheer him on while ignoring the amazing irony in Donald Trump’s attempt to grasp some kind of moral high ground.
Where is the outrage? Where is the indignation?
Someone has to explain to me how this guy gets away with this astonishing hypocrisy.
