Two amazing examples of hypocrisy from the Trump administration this week.

Yes, that was Sarah Huckabee Sanders making a plea the other day for civility in public discourse.  After getting thrown out of a restaurant for believing in things the restaurant’s owners does not – a despicable action by the owner, at least in The Curmudgeon’s view – Sanders tweeted that

I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.

And then, Sanders gave this little speech at her Monday press briefing: her plea for civility.

Yet this is the same Sarah Huckabee Sanders who, about ten days before that, responded to a question from CNN’s Jim Acosta – a real horse’s ass, by the way – by saying

I know it’s hard for you to understand even short sentences, I guess, but please don’t take my words out of context.

So much for Sanders’ commitment to civility.

Next it was Trump himself, criticizing congresswoman Maxine Waters – a certifiable loon, to be fair – for allegedly inciting violence.  Waters said

Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up. And if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them. And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.

That’s pretty obnoxious – and Trump called her on it.

But in a way that was no less obnoxious.

Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an extraordinarily low IQ person, has become, together with Nancy Pelosi, the Face of the Democrat Party. She has just called for harm to supporters, of which there are many, of the Make America Great Again movement. Be careful what you wish for Max!

Which means he’s essentially responding to what he perceives to be Waters’s threat with a threat of his own – in addition, of course, to his old standby:  name-calling.

But Trump is an old pro when it comes to attempting to promote violence against those who dare disagree with or oppose him, as you can see, in living color, here and here.

These Trump people are true hypocrites.  Also, they can dish it out but they sure can’t take it.
