GOP reps should distance themselves from Trump

Once again, our courageous and thoughtful GOP reps (except Steve King) are “distancing” themselves from President Donald Trump’s racist expletives. Interesting, please note, that they are not distancing themselves from Trump himself.

Where is their utter disgust, their outrage? Where is their demand that this hideous aberration of a president be removed from leadership of this great country?

Words like “distancing myself from his remarks” are gutless and as useless as “sending our thoughts and prayers” without immediate and defining action to address the problem.

Without that, our GOP reps continue to remain Trump’s collaborators and enablers for all he does and stands for, while decent Iowan’s weep.
