Yesterday, as conservative leaders across the country denounced Donald Trump’s comments about Judge Gonzalo Curiel’s Mexican heritage as racist, Trump dug in deeper, telling his critics to “get over it.”
Apparently, that’s exactly what Gov. Nathan Deal has done.
Gov. Nathan Deal and Sen. David Perdue made news yesterday by announcing their plans to host a fundraiser in Georgia next week for the increasingly toxic megalomaniac.
By the end of the day, even Sen. Perdue, an earlier supporter of Trump, called on the presumptive republican nominee to apologize to Judge Curiel.
But Gov. Deal remains silent in the face of Trump’s blatantly racist remarks.
Why is Gov. Deal refusing to condemn Trump’s remarks and, instead, continuing with plans to reward him with a fundraiser?
The truth is, Gov. Deal’s own history of controversial remarks may make it difficult for him to hold someone like Donald Trump accountable:
The bottom line is, some things are more important than party loyalty, and many Republicans recognize this and are speaking up to say “no” to Donald Trump’s bigotry. Gov. Deal should condemn Trump’s remarks and cancel the fundraiser – and he should do it today.
