Dem Lawmaker Calls Out Trump For Defending Porter: He’s ‘Appallingly Unpresidential’

Democratic Congressman Ted Lieu blasted Donald Trump on Friday after he defended former White House staff secretary Rob Porter while showing no sort of sympathy for the victims.

Lieu took to Twitter and criticized Trump’s remarks as being “appallingly unpresidential.”

“Instead of offering sympathy to the women who’ve come forward alleging abuse, Trump wished Porter well & pointed to his claims of innocence,” Lieu tweeted. “At this point, it’s hard to come up w/ new ways to express total dismay for @POTUS’s appallingly unpresidential remarks & actions in office.”

Trump praised Porter on Friday, saying that he “wishes him well” and hopes he has a “great career ahead of him.”

“I found out about it very recently and I was surprised by it. But we certainly wish him well, obviously a tough time for him,” Trump said. “He did a very good job when he was in the White House and we hope he has a wonderful, hopefully, he has a great career ahead of him.”

Lieu ended his series of Tweets reminding everyone about the seriousness of domistic violence.

“While it is clear the current President cannot serve as our moral compass, we must not lose sight of our shared virtues,” Lieu added. “Domestic violence and abuse must always be aggressively condemned.”
