Far be it for me to step in as Trump’s apologist. I did not want him to represent my party, but the damage has been done and we are stuck with him because the only true alternative is unspeakable.
Nevertheless, If I were to be judged by every casual word that sprang forth from my mouth, my lips would shame Hell. Moreover, there is a significant distinction between what one said in the spirit of sexual braggadocio to one’s confidant when one was heedless of an open mic, and Hillary Clinton’s outright loathsome epithets to staff and Secret service agents who were only doing their job to the best of their professional abilities.
Character is doing what is right when you think no one is looking, and hypocrisy is charging another with crimes that literally drip from your own fingertips. If we are fated to place our futures into the hands of sinful individuals infected with hubris and who crave the spotlight more than righteousness, I would prefer the Lothario who objectifies beautiful women to the traitorous liar who has sold her country’s birthright for a mess of pottage. What a mess we have made for ourselves when the act of choosing our destiny can be reckoned to diving head first into a septic tank. God save us.
