Rick Santorum: The Loud Sound of Tinkling Brass

barkstm Leave a Comment

For reasons that defy common sense, logic, and the scientific method, CNN has hired the washed-up former Senator Rick Santorum–AKA, Ricky Sanctimonious–to deliver an apologia for anything Donald Trump does. He has become the quintessential poster boy for the brainless Trump puppets that CNN and MSNBC hired to be talking heads for the Republican point of view. Tell me that these obsequious Trump lap dogs have anything worthwhile to say, you might as well tell me that Adolf Hitler, segregationists, racist bigots, anti-Semites and Jim Jones had valid viewpoints that deserved a hearing.

Mr. Sanctimonious has not been elected to any office in years. He has no more credentials as a political commentator than Rudolf Giuliani or a representative of QAnon. Nobody on God’s green earth gives a damn about Santorum’s opinion–other than CNN. His only credential: he’s CNN’s hired gun to defend Trump. There is no objective justification for his role.

These pro-Trump apologists spent four years telling us that no matter what Trump did, it was for the good of the country. Hugh Hewitt, Marc Thiessen, Henry Olsen, Gary Abernathy gave Trump their stamp of approval when he:

Bragged about sexually assaulting women
Called various women fat, ugly, Miss Piggy, and dog
Locked up children in wire cages
Demeaned the military service of John McCain
Mocked a handicapped person
Praised neo-Nazi demonstrators
Used racist slurs
Praised murderous thugs like Kim Jung Un and Vladimir Putin
Incited followers to violence
Called foreign countries “s—holes”
Told Congresswomen of color to go back where they came from

How low can you go?
