I think it’s important not to rewrite history by comparing past events to present ones. It’s also why I hate the way some people respond to every assertion of a misdeed with “what about when so-and-so did this-and-that?”
You’re right. Just because Trump is a turd-clogged toilet of a human being, doesn’t make W. suddenly a paragon of virtue.
He was a disgraceful leader. We shouldn’t romantacize him based on the current administration.
Nor should we excuse the job Trump is doing because W. did a shitty job too.
They are grown-ass men and they should each be held accountable for their own actions.
