GOP Lawmaker Admits If Obama Had Half The Scandals Trump Does It Would Be ‘A Human Rights Violation’
Donald Trump’s presidency has been one of the most, if not the most, scandalous presidencies in U.S. history. But not everyone in his political party is willing to admit that. One person who has acknowledged it is Rep. Charlie Dent (R-PA).
The Republican congressman admitted on Tuesday that his party has a double standard when it comes to the way they treat the scandals in the Trump presidency and the ones that occurred under Democratic presidents.
In a rare interview, Dent said that “[The Republicans] would be waving a bloody shirt” if former President Barack Obama had a sexual scandal like the one Trump has. He added that “it would be a human rights violation.”
“There’s no question about it, had this been a Democratic president who had been conciliatory towards the Russians, for example,” the congressman continued. “I’m sure as Republicans we’d be screaming morning to night about such a situation.”
