How on earth can Collins continue to praise Trump?
In the span of one week, President Trump lost his battle to repeal and replace Obamacare, was castigated by his own party regarding his disgraceful treatment of his chosen attorney general, issued a tweet barring transsexuals from serving in the military without consulting the secretary of defense or the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and gave a bizarre, cringe-worthy political speech to the Boy Scouts that prompted the chief executive of the Boy Scouts of America to issue an apology. Yet, none of this stopped Rep. Chris Collins from appearing on CNN and applauding the president’s actions and saying with a straight face that the president had had a great week.
My first reaction upon seeing Collins on CNN was to ask myself, what is wrong with Collins? However,upon further reflection, I realized that the more appropriate question to ask is: What is wrong with the people of his congressional district who keep voting this crackpot and national embarrassment into office?
