Politicians and pundits on both sides of the aisle have gone after President Trump’s decision to not punish Saudi Arabia or Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for murdering Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Some are getting a little aggressive with their condemnations.
Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) Tweeted an attack on President Trump that some say went too far.
“Hey @realdonaldtrump: being Saudi Arabia’s bitch is not ‘America First.’”
The popular Hawaiian politician has built a reputation for speaking her mind, but this one seems to be a little over the top. Perhaps a better way to do it would be to take his statement piece-by-piece and point out the flaws in the President’s reasoning.
It’s no secret I am not a fan of President Trump’s temperament, style, or morals, but I’ve been honest about supporting many pieces of his agenda. I fall into the same bucket as many conservative commentators who applaud when he does right while booing when he does wrong. His statement on the Saudi Arabia situation regarding the murder of Jamal Khashoggi is worthy of more than just boos. It’s an embarrassment to the United States because it sends the wrong message to any who read it, foreign or domestic.
The left will cheer her on, but if we’re being honest, isn’t this the same lack of decorum many have complained about in regards to the President himself?
