Trump and his administration are at a current crossroads involving accusations that Trump’s former aides are engaging in domestic violence. Of course, Trump stands behind these former aides, only willing to condemn them half-heartedly in public, yet still showing support for them behind closed doors. For more on what I’m talking about, watch this:
Former White House secretary, and drunk uncle at a Sweet 16, Rob Porter is in the spotlight for alleged domestic violence accusations levied against him by both of his ex-wives: one with a black-eye, the other with a horrifying story of force. The second ex-wife, Jennifer Willoughby, said he had broke into their house with his fist. The first ex-wife, Colbie Holderness, accuses him of punching her in the face. Porter claims this bruise came from her falling to the floor during a struggle they had during a vacation they had in Venice.
She says he straight up punched her in the face. You be the judge.
Unless that is a makeup job gone completely wrong, it looks like Porter used Holderness’ face like a punching bag.
As usual, this administration tip-toes and side-steps questions regarding Porter’s resignation. White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders offered little assurance that the adminstration she speaks for takes domestic violence seriously.
“This president wants due process.”
This president WANTS DUE PROCESS?
This same president who’d vow to lock-up Hillary Clinton over an email scandal that she has been proven time and time again to be INNOCENT OF?
This same president who’d threatened to open up libel laws to sue journalists because said journalists were “mean to him?”
Seems that this president only wants due process if he and his people are being accused of crimes. It seems that he should be on his knees praising Mueller that due process is being done RIGHT NOW!
Of course, this president and this administration is on the wrong side, again, of a major scandal. In the era of the #MeToo movement, Trump is actively saying that these women should not be believed. He is passively saying that this is all, in his words, FAKE NEWS. The argument should be levied is: why would Porter’s ex-wives make their respective stories up? They don’t seem to be out to want to receive a huge payday. Holderness and Willoughby simply want to speak their piece during a time where women are becoming braver and less anxious to share their stories of violence against them.
As for Porter, all you can say is:
