TrumpubliCONs, with Trump himself at the top, rape, grope and “grab ’em by the p*ssy,” but fooling around on a TV set forces Al Franken to resign and Steve King THIS YEAR longs for the days when “white supremacy” was socially acceptable, but Ralph Northam is pressured to resign over an obvious humor attempt, not a serious statement, from 34 years ago. No, the humor was not acceptable. It was racist and disgusting and by 1984 should have been obvious. No justification for it.
But the double standard is the issue. Franken was right to resign. Northam should resign. But Franken should have made his resignation effective at noon the day after Trump leaves office. And Northam should make his resignation effective at noon the day after Steve King leaves office.
