Dan Rather perfectly explains why Trump’s attacks on Mika are the symptom of a much larger problem

Published

Speaking with CNN’s Don Lemon, veteran broadcast journalist Dan Rather laid out the real reason why President Donald Trump’s tweet-attacks against MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski are so damaging.

“This is unbecoming of the president, and I think even the most ardent Trump supporter has to somewhere deep in themselves realize that,” Rather began.

“It’s “not about policy,” Rather continued. “It’s not even about politics. This is really about common decency.”

“In the end, I think it hurts Donald Trump more than anybody else,” Rather said. “The biggest enemy of Donald Trump and the thing that hurts him the most are these tweets.”

Writing in The Atlantic this Friday, Peter Wehner takes a renewed look at President Trump's white evangelical Christian base, saying that they've sacrifices whatever alleged principles they had in order to support Trump -- a decision that brought them nothing in return.

"Legislatively, Trump, compared with other presidents, has not achieved all that much for the pro-life cause and religious-liberties protection," Wehner writes. "For example, George W. Bush’s pro-life record is stronger and Bill Clinton achieved more in the area of religious liberties, signing into law the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act. ...
