Mike Lee is What a Leader Looks Like

Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) went on NewsMax TV last night and was asked by the host why the Senator has not endorsed Donald Trump. Senator Lee, unlike so many of his colleagues, exercised bold leadership merely by being honest and telling the truth.

“We can get into the fact that he accused my best friend’s father of conspiring to kill JFK. We can go through the fact that he’s made statements that some have identified correctly as religiously intolerant. We can get into the fact that he’s wildly unpopular in my state, in part because my state consists of people who are members of a religious minority church. A people who were ordered exterminated by the governor of Missouri in 1838. And, statements like that make them nervous.”

More of this, please.
