Alcoholics are famous for their apologies. Some spouses have heard “I’m sorry” hundreds of times. An apology without a repentance is not worth much, since it tends to be an addicts way of simply clearing the way for more offenses.
In China, folks connected with Jared Kushner’s family business last week promised that, for a half-million dollar investment in the business, they could help Chinese businessmen get American visas. The incredibly blatant violation of ethics is just another of a series of evidences that everyone even vaguely connected with Trump is out to take advantage of people in every way possible. As I keep writing, there simply is no moral dimension to Trump or his family or his team. they are addicted to greed.
And they are the leaders of the Executive branch American government. What shame Trump has brought to our nation.
But there is some good news in the world: France chose a centrist over a Trump-like candidate in national elections yesterday. Maybe, having seen the moral slime that covers Trump, the West is at a turnaround point and will regain some sanity.
