      I agree that sexual abuse straddles all boundaries, but I'm not convinced the condemnation of it is fully bipartisan. Where liberals have been pretty unequivocal in condemning Weinstein and Moore alike, there are still some conservatives/Republicans who support Moore. Kellyanne Conway just admitted the WH remains open to his candidacy because they'll need his vote on tax reform.

    I agree with your sentiment. The only thing I'd point out is that Trump and his circle are not really conservative. Although there are many kinds of conservative, Trump himself doesn't really fit into any of those categories. His campaign was a series of buzz words and themes that were designed to stoke the angst of the Republican base.

I never considered him a conservative either, but he's successfully co-opted the party with very little push-back from Republicans not named McCain or Flake. When a President says he supports someone accused of pedophilia because he needs their vote, then the collective party needs to set the party aside and do what's right. Otherwise they're culpable.

    I also think that 'conservatives' who are currently trying to loot the treasury and bloat the debt are not conservative. Paul Ryan, a guy who cut his ideological teeth on Atlas Shrugged (and originally ran on debt-crisis), has largely been revealed to be a fraud.
