Just when I think the juvenile delinquent at 166 Pennsylvania Ave cannot stoop lower he surprises me. I had very low expectations that he’d rise to the occasion and condemn the senseless violence in Charlottesville. He did not disappoint.
I’m very pleased to find corporate America sticking to belief in principles of decency. Kenneth Frazier a prominent CEO was the first to respond publicly. He, very publicly resigned from the President’s American Manufacturing Council. Apparently it took Trump only minutes to launch the standard ad hominem attack against Frazier and begin dissembling, again. Trump tweeted out:
Now that Ken Frazier of Merck Pharma has resigned from President’s Manufacturing Council, he will have more time to LOWER RIPOFF DRUG PRICES!
Kevin Plank, the founder of Under Armour and Brian Krzanich, the Intel chief executive followed suit. Plank and Krzanich were spared the Trump tantrum experience.
Care to guess which one is Frazier? Maybe Trump was slow to condemn the “alt right” because the “alt right” can also pick out Frazier.
Trumps behavior is simply reprehensible. His beliefs an anachronism of modern American values. I applaud Frazier, Plank, and Krzanich for taking a stand. They’ll get my money.
