    Sen. Marsha Blackburn is taking a page from Donald John's book - defamatory tweets against Col. Vindman (who testified against Donald) to whom she has taken to referring, Donald-like, as "Vindictive Vindman".

    Slander, defamation and name-calling have been winning strategies for Donald - why not for Blackburn?

    Isn't a purple heart rewarded for getting injured?

    Confusing isn't it--this matter of defamatory wording?

    When you leave the chain of command, whos first link is our president, and take up sides with the deep state, any symbols of loyalty to our country- such as military honors - should probably be surrendered.

    You can see the cancer that is Trump style politics is starting to spread through our government. Earlier this week we had another Republican Senator call a reporter a “liberal hack” and ignored his questions.

    Hi DD,

    Yes, it is a sad, sad situation, as the old Elton John song goes. The next line is: And it's getting more and more absurd.

    God bless,
    In Christ, ted

    Disgusting behavior by anyone, much less a Senator.

    I think that cancer of maliciousness and vicious attacks within politics has always been there. Trump has simply normalized it and now many of his supporters follow his example of spewing vile at one's political opponents without reservation. They are acting as if they shut off their moral conscience and have been given permission to be as vile and cruel as he is toward anyone he personally despises.

    When people defect to the deep state, do we owe them any of the respect we formerly gave them?

    Not at present, but language is a funny thing. You never know what's going to get into our vocabulary.

    Perhaps at some time in the not too distant future, his name will be used for purposes of swearing...

    What is the difference between being part of the "deep state," and believing in the values of American society? Like honesty, for starters.

    If the Trumpers want us to believe that they support the man because of his policies, and in spite of his odious personal habits, why then do they choose to emulate none of his policies, and only his odious personal habits?

    Does this mean that only liberal politicians are allowed to call people insulting names?

    When you turn deep state your "loyalty" to the president becomes entirely fake, and so departs both genuine loyalty as well as honesty.

    (Note: by "deep state", I'm referring to the pro-Trump person's notion. I dont really believe in such a thing.)

    Why not. That seems to be the precedent set by Republicans.

    Does this mean you have no answer to the question I asked?
