The Ugly Stench Of Hypocrisy

The most insightful thing I’ve yet read about the Donald Trump sex talk scandal is this:

How ironic, then, that a culture which rejects moral standards has suddenly become so pure and pristine, sitting in judgment of someone they deem too immoral to become president because of something he said in private. As a logical person, I have to ask these paragons of newly found virtue where this standard by which they’ve judged Trump is found. If morality is relative to each individual—a purely subjective experience—by what standard are they judging Trump? Obviously, in such a secular climate, there can’t even be a “standard.” Why should anyone listen to people who out of one side of their mouths declare the death of objective moral standards yet out of the other condemn someone for violating objective moral standards?

Human beings possess the capacity for rationality and objectivity. We’re able to distinguish what’s good and what’s bad.

Trump’s trashy comments do not uphold sex and romance as a beautiful and fulfilling, uplifting activity. But neither do Bill Clinton’s actions over the years, particularly with respect to his many, many dalliances with women.

Bill Clinton is not running for president. His wife is. But his wife built her whole career off the springboard of his presidency. Without his presidency, she would not have become a U.S. Senator and later Secretary of State — a bad one, at that.

If Bill Clinton had gone down in flames during his impeachment trial and been removed from office, Hillary would not be running for president now. The whole argument back then was that his lying and perjury were “just about sex.” Well, isn’t this tape with Donald Trump “just about sex” too? If it’s OK for a president to have oral sex in the Oval Office while doing official business, then why is it irredeemable and unforgivable for a presidential candidate to make lewd comments in private when he thought nobody was listening?

  1. Ah how right that is. True, Jane. Who hasn’t said and/or done things that they regret? Who really cares about his crude language, how many times he has been married, his tax returns, or his fights with media and other Republicans? He understands what is festering under the skins of we the people and says he can and will fix the issues. He isn’t part of the cast of political hacks that have created and/or supported the messes that we are in. That to me is worth a shot, flawed though he may be.

    Clinton will simply be more of the same that we have seen from Obama and his Czars.
