|Bob Goodlatte: Too long in the House.|
Until they rescind their endorsements of Donald Trump and all that he stands for, Congressmen Bob Goodlatte (6th District) and Morgan Griffith (9th District), both of whom live in the Roanoke Valley*, are subscribing to Trump's values.
Trump has offended a huge portion of the American public consistently since he announced his candidacy with his racist, misogynistic, xenophobic, irresponsible, arrogant, ignorant, boastful, insufferable personae. By linking themselves to his campaign and his values, Goodlatte and Griffith have given tacit approval to who he is, how he behaves and how he could run the country.
|Sneering Morgan Griffith: Trump Supporter.|
that he did not know was being recorded--should have sent everybody who has any remaining ethical values scurrying as quickly away from this deviant as possible.
Trump has said he would send 11 million people back to their country of origin, would seriously consider use of atomic weapons as other than a last resort, would consider jailing political opposition and would get even with any press outlet that disagrees with him. He is a supporter of Vladimir Putin and has spoken admiringly of Hitler.
All of this must be ascribed to those who support him, who appear with him, who do not denounce him. Two of the guilty party are Goodlatte and Griffith, Republicans who represent those of us in the Roanoke Valley with their offices, but not with their values. They are decidedly anti-American and both must be stripped of their offices.
(*Griffith lives in Salem, which is outside the 9th District. House members are not required to live in the districts they represent.)
