Conservative Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin is one of the few sane right-wingers left in the nation. She regularly reams the unpatriotic, cruel, and inhumane Trump Administration, and this week, on an appearance on MSNBC’s AM Joy, Rubin weighed in on the situation regarding White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders being shunned in public.
Rubin went all in on Sanders on the show, saying:
Sarah Huckabee Sanders is so concerned that people aren’t nice to her. And people like me think that — not that she should be harassed — but that she should be shunned. The reason is that she lies.”
“She attacks our free press and no respectable employer should hire her after this term. Also, no university and no news outlet. She has lied and she has endangered the lives of reporters and that’s why she should be shunned. Not harassed — shunned.”
Jennifer Rubin is correct, especially since Sanders continuously refuses to do something as basic as defend the free press and go against the very dangerous idea that they are “the enemy of the people” as her orange boss so regularly says. Sanders is an authoritarian, just like Donald Trump, Jeff Sessions, Mike Pence, and all of the other dark and frightening figures in this travesty of an administration.
This should frighten us all. There should be more Jennifer Rubins in the world, people who are willing to put country over party and condemn this creeping fascism that is so regularly spewed by the Trump Administration. Too bad there aren’t more Republicans who actually are not complicit in this destruction of our democracy. The republic depends upon patriots right now, because there are none in the White House.
Yes, shun members of the Trump Administration. They are destroying the nation.
