Trump is the new, shameless Joe McCarthy

History recalls that Sen. Joseph McCarthy

was nailed by Attorney Joseph Welch in a 1954 hearing who famously asked the Wisconsin GOP Senator, "You've done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?"

Tonight the President of the United States - - groomed in personal and legal behaviors by McCarthy aide Roy Cohn - - mocked and belittled and verbally assaulted Dr. Christine Blasey Ford in front of a cheering, jeering rally in Mississippi, as reported by The Washington Post.

Were Trump to be posed Welch's historic question - - "have you no sense of decency left?" - - the answer would be as it has been since the day Trump announced for the Presidency - -  "no."

Trump's vulgarity has stained the Presidency and is on its way to dragooning a devalued US Senate to contaminate the US Supreme Court for a generation.

Every Republican in the face of this disgusting abusive new Trump low who continues his or her silence which has already strengthened and enabled and normalized him - - from Paul Ryan to Scott Walker to Ron Johnson to Leah Vukmir - - should be strongly condemned and denied further support of any kind if they do not immediately and unequivocally demand that Trump apology to Dr. Ford. 

Wisconsin Republicans gave the world the original Joe McCarthy. They have a special historical obligation to stand up and condemn Joe McCarthy 2.0 

Beginning now.

And Trump's removal through impeachment can't come fast enough.
