Will Any Republicans Stand Up Against Trump’s Latest Bigotry?

Our president is on Twitter again today, this time telling progressive Democratic congresswomen “who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe” to “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” He then tried to bury it by retweeting a flurry of old stuff in hopes it would scroll off the bottom of the page, but it was way too late for that.

Honestly, though, I barely even care about this kind of crap from Trump anymore. His repulsive bigotry has been obvious for a long time, and it’s not as if anyone can pretend not to see it. What I do continue to care about is whether anyone from the Republican Party will say anything about this. Anything at all. Even a mild little rap on the knuckles.

Anyone?

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
