What Morici misses about Trump and the GOP

Letter to the Baltimore Sun




Three things are striking from Peter Morici’s commentary :

 First, he never mentioned Russia once throughout your piece as if that cloud suddenly disappeared.  The Russian meddling in our election and Trump’s at best indifference to it or at worst involvement in it will detrimentally affect the GOP more than the Republican’s sabotaging of Obamacare or the other issues he cited.

Second, his lecturing the Democratic minority leaders for not legitimizing the Trump presidency is laughable.  Where has he been the previous eight years when Republican leaders (and the GOP Congressional caucus) not only not legitimizing President Obama in ways too numerous and too sickening to list here, they literally deprived him of his Constitutional right to nominate a Supreme Court justice.

Third, he mentioned Betsy DeVos and “sound ideas” in the same sentence.
