Is there an irreversible split it America, demonstrating a great divide that we cannot heal? The following remarks from John Dickerson, CBS correspondent, should open your eyes giving you something to think about…they arise from Chief or Staff John Kelly’s remarks over the firestorm on Trump’s comments to a military family that their son knew what he signed up for, not remembering the veteran’s name.
“White House chief of staff Gen. John Kelly's Thursday speech touched on a broader, general fear that "political fights are now permanent and there has been a split in America that is forgetting our common humanity," CBS News chief Washington correspondent and "Face the Nation" host John Dickerson said.” CBS
“‘Everything is a chance to score a point,’ CBS News' Dickerson said. ‘And thankfully, Secretary Mattis has said, the military has not been corroded by that constant combat. But that may have now changed because this recent back-and-forth touches on this most-sacred part of public life -- a commitment by men and women to offer their life for their country. No one wants to cheapen that.’
‘But now we're in the third round or so of this fight in which each side is looking for the devastating blow to score against the other,’ Dickerson said. ‘The only way that these get reset is if someone shows restraint or extends a hand to the other side in the name of that sacred sacrifice that Mr. Kelly was talking about today’” CBS
The first person to extend the hand to the other side “in the name of that sacred sacrifice” needs to be Donald Trump.
