George Will on Trumps endorsement of Roy Moore

Part of reporting the news in the form of quotes means reporting things that we don’t necessarily agree with for the sake of exposing a perspective. I supported Roy Moore, but I also understand why conservative commentator George Will did not. Now that Moore has lost, Will has continued his attacks on the President for endorsing him.

“After the president’s full-throated support of the grotesque, he should be icily shunned by all but his diehard collaborators.”

Will: With Moore, Trump sunk the US presidency to new depths

http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/12/13/george-will-by-endorsing-moore-trump-sunk-the-us-presidency-to-unplumbed-depths/Elation is in order because a gross national embarrassment has been narrowly avoided. But curb your enthusiasm because nationally, as in Alabama, most Republicans still support the president who supported the credibly accused child molester. Alabama, however, has perhaps initiated the inevitable sorting of Republicans who retain a capacity for disgust from the Vichy Republicans who have none. After the president’s full-throated support of the grotesque, he should be icily shunned by all but his diehard collaborators. For example: When the president stages a signing ceremony for the tax legislation, no etiquette requires any Republican to be photographed grinning over his shoulder. Stay away.
