Trump: Racial slur points to sinking morals

Am I missing something here? This is the federal government that was willing to put a woman on trial for supposedly laughing during the swearing in of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

It also refused Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren from reading a letter written by Martin Luther King’s widow because it allegedly impugned the motives of Sessions.

And yet it sees no problem with President Trump continuing to use a racial slur (”Pocahontas”) when referring to Senator Warren.

Have our morals sunk so low that we blindly look the other way and accept this kind of behavior just because they’re elected officials?

What kind of examples are they portraying not only to our youth but to other countries that used to look up to us?

These aren’t the people that I once looked up to to run our country.
