Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Saving the World from Trump

 

This morning I saw an op-ed piece that finally drove me over the top. Here is one statement from Kathleen Parker from her piece :

Whatever her ultimate motive, Haley clearly decided that stepping on Tillerson and Kelly was in her political interest. There can have been no other reason to drag these two honorable, accomplished men through the mud for, by her own account, trying to mitigate some of Trump’s more-destructive impulses.
