Aiding and abetting: As a matter of decency, silence is not an option

It was obvious during the presidential campaign that Donald Trump was not going to be an ordinary candidate. He has certainly carried that same irreverence - and arrogance - into the White House, which seems to please the 38-40 percent of American voters who continue to support the President.

Regardless of what the President says and does, members of his own party remain extremely subdued when it comes to being critical of his actions.
