Noem says elected officials can’t mislead the public.
Noem says questionable information coming from the White House is not unique to the Trump Administration [Todd Epp, “Noem: What Are the Facts in Washington, D.C.?” KELO Radio, 2017.06.15].
Once again, we must reject the false equivalency to which apologists for the worst president ever resort when they can muster no logical defense of Trump’s words and actions. Sure we can find false statements made by Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, John F. Kennedy, and other occupants of the White House. But I challenge Congresswoman Noem to identify any other White House that has lied with either the rate or brazenness of Donald Trump.
Kristi should know better. She has kids. If she catches Booker with his hand in the cookie jar, I doubt her first reaction is, “Oh, Kennedy and Kassidy snuck cookies before dinner, too.” The proper parental reaction is, “Booker! Get your hands out of the cookie jar!”
Everybody else did it does not excuse us from holding accountable the people who are doing it now. Congresswoman Noem, grow a conscience, and hold Donald Trump accountable for his unpresidential lies.
