Right-wing evangelical leader: It’s time to investigate Trump’s alleged sexual misconduct

Published

on

A conservative evangelical leader broke with many of his fellow right-wing Christians this week and said there should be an investigation into sexual conduct allegedly committed by President Donald Trump.

In an interview with Iowa Public Radio, evangelical leader Bob Vander Plaats said that Christians shouldn’t ignore sexual allegations against Trump simply because he denies them.

“A lot of these ladies came forth in the election, and for whatever reason, the American people said ‘we’re going to give the presidency to Donald Trump,'” said Vander Plaats, who is the CEO of the Christian advocacy group Family Leader. “That doesn’t mean their issue went away because he became president.”

He went on to say that a Congressional investigation would be appropriate at this juncture, as multiple women have come forward to accuse Trump.

“I think if these ladies need to be heard on this — and I think they probably should be heard — then let’s let the facts play out,” he said. “I don’t think it should be really dismissed.”

Vander Plaats in 2016 backed the candidacy of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who for months had a bitter primary battle with Trump in which the president mocked the appearance of Cruz’s wife and insinuated that Cruz’s father might have been part of a conspiracy to murder former President John F. Kennedy.

Rep Ocasio-Cortez blasts complexity of health care marketplace: ‘No one should go through this’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasted the complexity of the health care marketplace on the day of the deadline to sign up for 2020 coverage.

Health care has been a major topic in the 2020 Democratic primary, with some moderate candidates defending the Affordable Care Act passed under President Barack Obama, while progressive candidates push for Medicare for All.

"Members of Congress also have to buy their plans off the exchange," she explained. "That means I get to 'choose' [between] 66 complex financial products."

"This is absurd. No person should go without healthcare, and no one should go through this, either," she argued.

How to take down a cult leader

Published

on

Do you focus on shaming them for the damage they’re doing? Do you try to expose their lies and hypocrisies? Do you remind them of our common values? Do you try to prevail with your values? Do you try to prove that they’re factually incorrect? Do you curse them for being bad people?

Any of these moves could be useful for swaying onlookers to resist the cult, but that’s a different matter. The question here is how to cut them, making the cult and its leaders show blood.

Not once in Trump’s entire political run has he shown blood, been left speechless, stunned, or stalled. Remember Dan Quale’s face when Lloyd Benson told Dan Quayle, “You’re no John Kennedy”? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QYAZkczhdMs)  or Reagan’s “there you go again”? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qN7gDRjTNf4) Or Chris Christys cut  Rubio over his “25 second sound bite”? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkdpzRDxTXU) Or the classic, Joseph McCarthy cut by Joseph Welch’s “Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last?”(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8llS0ZkLVGA)
