In light of the most recent news that has come from the White House concerning Rob Porter’s domestic abuse allegations, I want to ask you whether your sick puppy comment isn’t a little too late?
Last week you praised Porter and emphasized his claims of innocence without any mention of his two ex-wives—his alleged victims. So which is it? Sick puppy or does he fall under that category of misunderstood fellow who’s a very nice person just like some of the neo-Nazis who marched in Charlottesville?
Your back and forth on issues is perplexing and I can only guess that you take a certain stance—typically the wrong one—because you have your goons whispering in your ear and you’re just not very bright (regardless of your claims of being a stable genius).
Do you know how many women are abused by an intimate partner? According to the National Domestic Violence Hotline, more than 35 percent of women in the United States have been physically abused by an intimate partner at some point in their lives.
I want you to take a look at this PDF which list the statistics of domestic violence for both men and women. Take the time to read it tonight. Think it over because domestic violence doesn’t discriminate. Rob Porter seemed like a nice enough fellow, yet he gave his first wife a black eye.
And while we’re on this topic, I hope you recognize that how you’ve humiliated the First Lady also falls under abuse. I hope she comes to her senses, pack her bags and sues you for divorce.
