CNN’s Jake Tapper: Trump Continues Eroding ‘Basic Lines of Human Decency’

Wednesday on CNN’s “The Lead,” host Jake Tapper said President Donald Trump is continuing to erode the “basic lines of human decency.”

Tapper said, “There are basic lines of human decency, norms to which society generally agrees and to which we adhere, and we continue to see the Trump presidency eroding these lines. Some of the people marching alongside Nazis in and the Klan Charlottesville were very fine people, President Trump said, as he drew a line of moral equivalence of those who protested days after one of those Nazis drove purposefully into a crowd and killed Heather Heyer. Or last fall after U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore was credibility accused by women of having sexually abused them when they were in high school. One of the victims as young as 14. Republicans withdrew their support for Roy Moore, except for President  Trump, who doubled down. To this list of those marching alongside Nazis and those accused of sexually abusing children, the White House has added someone accused by two ex-wives of spousal abuse.”

He continued, “White House officials have been generally aware of the accusations that White House Staff Secretary Rob Porter has beaten his ex-wives. Today the White House is still standing by Porter, attesting to his character and his excellence.”

He added, “Before we begin today’s report, I just wanted to once again note a further erosion of standards for what I thought we had all agreed was not ok,  not acceptable, not moral, white supremacist rallies, child molesters, domestic abusers. Another moment where the White House is, sadly, no longer considered a place of the highest standards in the land, but rather a place where our national standards are being degraded.”
