Is his response vile? Yes. There have been so many moments — from the time Trump descended that escalator in June 2015 to announce his candidacy, to today — that seemed they would be his lowest. Wrong.
If only the GOP-controlled Congress would call out Trump’s vileness with a unified voice maybe — just maybe — that would have an impact on Trump’s behavior. It’s hard to tell. In so many instances, Trump truly seems to lack compassion and empathy and appears to enjoy being cruel.
But one thing is clear, if you reject Trump’s despicable behavior, then come Election Day on November 6, make your voice heard by voting. We may not be able to stop Trump from sinking lower, but we may just be able to stop Trump from dragging America down to his level.
