Tell Me Something I Already Know

on

BY SHARON MARTIN

Why are people surprised that the president defends a domestic abuser?

He defends Putin, a known enemy of the American government.

He lies, even when there is evidence that refutes what he has just said.

He has a history of cheating contractors and employees.

He has been accused of sexual assault.

He insults people. Some days it is an opponent in his crosshairs. Other days, it is an ally.

He seeks revenge on every perceived slight.

He praises dictators and puts down public servants.

What kind of people does a man like this attract to his inner circle?

If he sees an aide as an ally, it is in his interest to defend him or her.

Until it isn’t. When he turns, that shouldn’t surprise you, either.
