What so bad about wife beating?

Latest news Republitards don't care about:
White House Counsel Donald McGahn knew one year ago that staff secretary Rob Porter’s ex-wives were prepared to make damaging accusations about him but allowed him to serve as an influential gatekeeper and aide to President Trump without investigating the accusations, according to people familiar with the matter.

Chief of Staff John F. Kelly learned this fall about the allegations of spousal abuse and that they were delaying Porter’s security clearance amid an ongoing FBI investigation. But Kelly handed Porter more responsibilities to control the flow of information to the president.
What he *allegedly* did:
Holderness and Jennie Willoughby, Porter’s second wife, both said they were contacted and interviewed in January 2017 by the FBI about their back-to-back marriages to Porter between 2003 and 2013. Holderness, a 37-year-old senior analyst at the U.S. Government Accountability Office, said she provided photos of the black eye she said he delivered during a 2005 vacation in Florence. Willoughby, a 39-year-old writer and motivational speaker, said she authorized investigators to obtain a protective order she filed in 2010 after he refused to leave her Arlington, Va., apartment, in violation of their separation agreement. She said he returned the next day and broke glass in the door with his fist.

The FBI had contacts with the ex-wives a second time, in September. Willoughby alerted investigators Sept. 22 that she had received a call from Porter the previous day, demanding to know whether she had used the word “violent” with the FBI to describe his behavior. Porter was angry, she said, that he had still not received his security clearance.
I wonder if he threatened to beat her more until he got his security clearance?
Shah said Kelly was not “fully aware” of the alleged spousal abuse until Wednesday, when he saw the pictures of Holderness with a black eye.
Not aware!

"Hey Porter, what gives? It's been a year and you still don't have your security clearance? Come on! you said it was nothing! come on Bro, we've had you working on highly sensitive shit this whole time. you're gonna make us look a little bad when we complain the Dems aren't serious about national security."

Goddamn, that artice is full of juicy gossip.
Talk about Porter’s past started spreading throughout the White House after a former girlfriend told McGahn in November that he should investigate the abuse alleged by the ex-wives, according to people familiar with the matter. The former girlfriend, who also works in the administration, declined to comment Thursday. Porter is having a romantic relationship with White House Communications Director Hope Hicks, and that relationship led the former girlfriend to come forward, according to White House officials. Hicks helped draft some of the early White House responses to the allegations against Porter.
It IS like a reality TV show.

this White House is the biggest fucking joke the establishment has ever played on the American people... a joke that will just get less and less funny as we get more and more miserable dealing the policies and decisions they bungle their way through.

another WH staffer resigned after his wife came forward alleging he beat her and burned her with a cigarette.

he was also a former aide to LePage, that openly racist shithead governor of Maine.

Trump just defended them on Twitter. Saying they should go through Due Process. It is amazing how this president will back anything from white supremacy to wife beaters.

Democrats are defined by the word hypocrite.

The White Trash House is more like a surreality docudramedy. High level associates and family members handling highly classified documentation, w/o top security clearances.

Cue up the Yakety Sax background music:

It is not even close between the two parties. The democrats have their issues but it is not even close to the level of hypocrisy that the Gop is sadly. Let's see Trump Lies all the time and his Gop clan covers for him explain that lol.. And that is only one thing this Racist abuser does.

Hypocrisy itself is on the edge of being opinion based. It assumes the true nature of someone is known, which it vary rarely is.

Comparing the hypocrisy of the two parties is definitely only true in the eye of the beholder. As I said many times before, your "eye" isn't any better than anyone else's. So while the rest of your ignorant rant is fine, comparing the two parties leaves a lot to be desired.
