Former “CBS Evening News” anchor Dan Rather just added his voice to the growing number of media personalities who spoke against the Twitter behavior of President Donald Trump. In a Facebook post as a reaction to the president’s tweet on “Morning Joe” host Mika Brzezinski’s alleged botched facelift, Rather said Trump has done enough damage.

Rather then asked the billionaire, “Have you no sense of decency?” The Washington Journal noted those words came from Joseph Welch, an Army lawyer who responded to Senator Joseph McCarthy during the 1950s communist witch hunt.

Era of shame

Rather pointed out that McCarthy used to be a powerful senator who eventually became “a small, vile, hateful man.” The CBS anchor said the senator’s name has become an epithet for a period of shame in the U.S. history which is being repeated by Trump’s Twitter habits.

He explained that he did not want to respond to the bait of Trump’s tweets, however, his demeaning and sexist attack on Mika he cannot but comment on. Rather described Mika as a fearless and fair journalist who was still mourning the recent death of her late father, Zbigniew, the national security advisor during the term of President Jimmy Carter.

The CBS anchor noted that Trump’s predecessor, President Barack Obama, was attacked during his term by the GOP for allegedly demeaning the Office of the President, but he never responded negatively to those comments.

Rather cringed at the thought of what McCarthy would have been capable of saying had there been Twitter during his days.

Silence of the daughter

Melania Trump, who is supposed to be an anti-cyberbullying advocate, has expectedly come to Donald’s defense by accusing Mika of furthering her agenda by commenting on her and the family of the FLOTUS.

The Associated Press scored Ivanka, the first daughter, for her silence on her father’s sexist tweets.

The wire service noted that Ivanka was vocal about using her role in the White House to advocate for women. AP said her silence highlighted the challenges and calculations the first daughter has to face as she attempts to promote policies supposed to be friendly to the family in her father’s administration which had “made women cringe and drawn bipartisan rebuke.”

Mika and Joe, in a column on Washington Post on Friday, challenged the women close to Trump to condemn the president for his sexist tweet. The two MSNBC hosts wrote, “It would be the height of hypocrisy to claim the mantle of women’s empowerment while allowing a family member to continue such abusive conduct.”
