New York Times writer Michelle Goldberg said Tuesday on MSNBC that President Trump and his circle have a “bottomless depravity.”
Goldberg, appearing on MSNBC’s “Hardball With Chris Matthews,” said, “I think part of the problem here is that because there is so much bad faith on the right and such sort of bottomless depravity among Trump and his circle, that it makes it difficult to reckon with these things properly among Democrats, which is where most of this is going on. Right, most of these kind of purges are happening in left-leaning industries, in part because that’s where people in power are responsive to this torrent of revelations, you know?”
“Republicans just hear about it and shrug their shoulders and do nothing. So, you don’t have the same sort of energy of people being exposed and held to account. One result of that is that you have this hugely disproportionate standard, where Democrats and Democratic institutions are sort of turning themselves inside out, while Republicans are skating blithely forward,” she added.
