Is it Wrong to Defend Trump?

from David Limbaugh:

One thing should be clear, at least to Republicans: The left has had the long knives out for President Donald Trump since before he was inaugurated. It intended to destroy him regardless of his conduct in office.

Liberals and even some conservatives contend that Trump’s defenders on the right are tainted, partisan, idolatrous cheerleaders who have sold their souls and principles to defend him against troublesome charges. Some argue that even if former Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton engaged in similar activities, two wrongs don’t make a right.

 Trump supporters, they say, have always insisted they are strict adherents of the rule of law but are showing their true colors in defending Trump. But are they? Why is defending Trump against these excessive charges a betrayal of the rule of law? Just because he’s handled some things disappointingly doesn’t mean he’s committed a crime or an impeachable offense. The rule of law requires that we be discriminating about these matters and not jump on the bandwagon to condemn Trump just because we don’t approve of some of his actions or statements.

Without question, the rule of law and all other principles must be given the highest priority, and the Trump presidency doesn’t change that. But there’s something more involved here than mere Democratic hypocrisy.

We are talking about Democratic and liberal media wrongdoing. Obama, when injecting himself into the investigation concerning Hillary Clinton’s emails and saying that no criminal activity had occurred, actually engaged in the very conduct of which Trump is being sloppily accused. The left had no objection. But at this point, it sure doesn’t appear that Trump’s comments to then-FBI Director James Comey about then-national security adviser Michael Flynn rose to the level of interfering with a proceeding, much less obstruction of justice.

Liberals are also engaged in wrongdoing by conducting this ceaseless witch hunt against Trump for alleged collusion with Russia to interfere with the presidential election when they know there is no evidence of any collusion. It is reprehensible that they are perpetuating this slander to delegitimize Trump and undermine the will of the American people.

gs” here, and attempts to attribute moral equivalence to these separate sets of conduct are deceitful and scurrilous.
