Disavow support from Republican Convention Speaker Scott Baiao
The alt-right veers into obscenities and hatred and violence; this is a problem because it undermines the mutual respect that is key to sustaining rational discussion and debate, negotiation and compromise, that allows our system of government to work. Shouting at opponents with obscenities, hatred, and threats of violence destroys respect. Scott Baio tweeted an image of Hillary Clinton standing in front of a campaign sign's large letters spelling "COUNT". Actually, she is standing directly in front of and covering only the "O", leaving the c-word. Baio's obscene image seems both to represent a total lack of respect toward women generally, an obscene attack worthy of an adolescent mindset. Baio was invited to speak to the Republican National Convention by Trump. Having elevated Baio to such prominence, Trump should now recognize that Baio went over the line with his tweet. And he should disavow him for having posted an obscene political attack on a public site that any kid or teen could find if they were looking up Chachi on Happy Days.
Trump: Disavow Republican Convention Speakers who use Obscenities to go after Clinton
American democracy depends on civility and decency in discussing political issues and negotiating solutions. Obscene attacks on opponents undermines the civility that all Americans should strive for in our country. Obscene, personal attacks have no place in our political life and elections. Republican Convention speaker, Scott Baio, tweeted a picture of Hillary Clinton juxtaposed with the C-word. To protect civil discourse and the tradition of respect for differences, Trump should disavow Scott Baio and any other public supporter who uses obscene images and words in the presidential campaign.
