While there’s no doubt Donald Trump was being a hypocrite when he morally condemned an entire country he was at the same time trying to do business with, why in the world are liberals and Democrats so outraged about him violating an unfair travel and trade embargo that they have been politically against for years?
This is like being in favor of lifting the legal sanctions against smoking marijuana, but then turning around and slamming someone you don’t like because they were seen smoking a joint somewhere. In other words, it’s a bogus complaint and you’re a frigging hypocrite yourself to even be trying to pursue the issue.
Trump’s actually only being accused of violating the Cuban travel ban right now, but these critics are acting as if he’d actually set up a real business there. Maybe he should have, because if anything he was only ahead of the curve on this one. And lots of people have (illegally!) traveled to Cuba over the years.
We’ve known Cubans who have, in fact; and we also knew that old registrar at Glendale College who was killed in a car accident there in
1996 1999 while on a vacation trip. Huell Howser sneaked in there in 1997, and KCET still has it online. Jimmy Carter had even dropped this same travel ban in the late 1970s only to see it reinstated later under Reagan.
Again, there are many things that people can get Donald Trump on, but this isn’t one of them. Trump opponents are acting just as silly and stupid and inconsistent as his supporters. Do they not think? It’s such phony umbrage.
