We should not congratulate these retirees for their honesty. Nor should we forget the complicity Republicans and their leaders have exercised in turning a convenient blind eye to the destruction of the American ideal. The poor and middle class are being hurt by the actions of the Trump administration, to say nothing of the disenfranchised. This sad period of history will eventually end. But we won’t forget when that day of reckoning is upon us.
