A Son and a Lawyer Set a Meeting
So Donald Trump, Jr. has been a little wishy washy over the past 24 hours on his statements regarding a meeting with a Russian lawyer. Come on, we can hardly expect him to understand the gravity of the situation, he and his family have no policy – or common sense – experience whatsoever.
While a normal political group would notify the FBI that a foreign agent, and adversary of the US, was offering up damning information about an opponent, the Trump family just assumed it was business as usual. Please don’t blame him for being naive, just blame him for lying about it and trying to cover it up when the world called foul.
A Senator Defends a Foreign Baby but Not Millions of Americans
So the good Senator Ted Cruz is advocating for the darling baby in England, Charlie Gard. Listen, we are all rooting for the little guy and thing that the courts should not make a decision for the parents regarding his care. Allowing this little person to be exposed to additional treatments could ultimately help another young person some day so there is definitely value in prolonging his life.
However, when Sen. Cruz tweets that “No hospital , no gov’t has the right to deny parents their chance for a medical miracle” while simultaneous trying to repeal health coverage and Medicaid benefits is, well, HYPOCRITICAL.
I don’t agree with Obamacare, but I don’t agree with the proposed Senate replacement (if you can call it a replacement). That said, what the heck is Cruz thinking tweeting that a hospital can’t deny treatment while simultaneously doing nothing to improve the health care in his home country. What color is the sky in his world?
