Editor: Rep. Barbara Comstock pretended to be offended by Donald Trump’s admission of sexual assault and sexist, misogynist comments in the trump sex video. She wasn’t offended by his racism, bigotry, xenophobia, homophobia, Islamophobia, or by his support (tolerated by the Trump-Pence campaign) from the KKK and other white supremacist hate groups, at least not enough to call on Trump to withdraw from the race for president.
Rep. Comstock was offended by his misogyny and sexual assault(s?) until she won re-election. Now, with Donald Trump naming known racist, sexist, and domestic abuser Steve Bannon as his chief White House strategist, Rep Comstock remains silent.
Either Rep. Comstock supports (and holds) Bannon’s (and so Trump’s and Pence’s) deplorable opinions and attitudes and so remains silent or Rep. Comstock will take a stand for all her constituents and denounce Steve Bannon and call on Trump to remove him as his chief White House strategist and keep Bannon from any office and position in his administration. Rep. Comstock’s response to Steve Bannon’s appointment will tell us what kind of person she really is.
