Trump Just Broke Last Night’s Promise To Not Attack Republican Senators In A Twitter Tantrum

Last night, in a despotic, authoritarian style rally, the President of the United States blasted his critics, defended his remarks condoning white supremacist violence, and incited anti-First Amendment rage among his base.

While the scene was arguably a new low for the presidency, President Trump did make one attempt to rise above the fray.

In lampooning Arizona’s Republican senators — John McCain, who was the 51st and deciding vote against repealing Obamacare, and Jeff Flake, who has voted with Trump but criticized him — Trump said, “They all said, ‘Mr. President, your speech was so good last night, please, please Mr. President, don’t mention any names.’ So I won’t. I won’t… One vote away [alluding to McCain’s healthcare saving vote] — I will not mention any names. Very presidential, isn’t it?”

In attacking Flake, Trump proved that he cannot be trusted to even keep the promises no one is asking for.
