Former FBI Director Comey went on Twitter on Wednesday in order to contrast President Trump’s hateful rally the night prior with the former President Ronald Reagan’s call to “speak kindly.”
“After last night’s rally, it is important to remember we once had a President who spoke these words, ‘Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly, and leave the rest to God.’ Ronald Reagan,” James Comey said via Twitter.
Comey, who is a vocal critic of the disastrous Trump administration, frequently goes on Twitter to tweet pointed quotes as a response to Trump’s evil actions.
Comey remarks come one day after Trump, during a rally in Mississippi, misogynistically mocked Christine Blasey Ford, who was the first woman to share her truth that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her.
“‘How did you get home?'” Donald Trump disgustingly said on Tuesday, imitating Dr. Ford’s testimony about her rape before the US Senate Judiciary Committee. “‘I don’t remember.’ ‘How’d you get there?’ ‘I don’t remember.’ ‘Where is the place?’ ‘I don’t remember.’ ‘How many years ago was it?’ ‘I don’t know.'”
Trump’s unbelievably shameful mockery of Dr. Ford prompted several Republican senators who are potential swing votes for his rapist Supreme Court nominee to disagree with the president.
Republican Senator (Maine) accurately called Trump’s remarks “plain wrong,” and Republican Senator Jeff Flake (Ariz.) said on NBC’s “Today” that the evil president’s comments were “appalling.” GOP Senator Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) said Trump’s comments on Dr. Ford were “wholly inappropriate.”
The Republicans currently have 51 seats in the US Senate. They can afford to lose just one GOP senator’s vote on Brett Kavanaugh before they must lean on Democrats in order to have him confirmed.
So far, none of the noble Democrats have said that they plan to support a rapist for the Supreme Court, although Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) as well as Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-N.D.) are still undecided.
