Last month former Vice President Pence said Donald Trump was wrong for having dinner with a Holocaust denier and anti-Semite (Nick Fuentes and Ye West). He even went as far as to call for Trump to apologize for having dinner with the two despicable individuals.
Yet the recently elected Congressman-elect George Santos and state Senator-elect Jack Martins minimized their personal objections to Trump’s despicable behavior, another example of how Trump believes “there are good people on both sides.”
Where are the likes of County Executive Bruce Blakeman, North Hempstead Councilman David Adhami, Town Supervisor Jennifer DeSena and our Great Neck neighbor Jeff Wiesenfeld and other Republicans? Are they waiting for instructions from their Republican Party leadership to give them permission to call out Trump’s action? They are all guilty of facilitating hate and empowering the Marjorie Taylor Greens and others.
Supporters of silence bring “shanda” (shame) to us all.
