Anthony Scaramucci (“The Mooch”) was a top communications aide to #BenedictDonald for eleven days. Remember that? Well, the two have completely split now, as so often happens with #PutinsPuppet. Mr. Scaramucci gives a weakly cogent defense of his prior defense of #CriminalDonald, then admits he was wrong. And, to that end, he makes a point about us. You and me. How are we to treat these new ‘converts’ into the “I woke up and saw the light” about #DonaldTrumpWhoIsAPerv? I am a believer in redemption, but/and the punishment must fit the crime. In hockey, they have the “penalty box” where an infraction costs some time, and then they let you back on the ice. So, please look at the bold and italicized sentence below and ponder the question. We are going to need to go forward and that means we’re going to have to come to some reconciliations. With some folks at least. Like The Mooch?
“I challenge my fellow Republicans to summon the nerve to speak out on the record against Trump. Defy the culture of fear he has created, and go public with the concerns you readily express in private. Hold on to your patriotism, and help save the country from his depredations. And to members of the so-called resistance, please leave room on the off-ramp for those willing to admit their mistakes.” (Emphasis added).
