"Rounds, Noem, & Thune Complicit in Trump Failed Policies": Cartoon by Jo Johnson, July 2020

Native Sun News Today Editorial: The 'hear no evil, see no evil, and speak no evil' GOP

We suppose that most of us are pretty sick and tired of South Dakota’s duly elected national representatives bowing down to everything that is bad about Donald Trump and not standing up to refute the damaging lies he uses every day to solidify his base.

Are John Thune, Mike Rounds, and Kristi Noem his base? We will leave Dusty Johnson out of this for the moment because he has shown faint signs of being an independent thinker.

Thune, Rounds and Noem are complicit in all of the damage Trump has done to nearly destroy the image of America abroad. More than 143,000 Americans are dead from the coronavirus because Trump refused to recognize the disease when he had the opportunity to bring it to a halt and, in fact, denied its very existence when he called it a “hoax” You can bet that the families of those that have died from the disease do not consider it a “hoax.”

If Thune and Rounds had stood tall when it came time to impeach Trump would 143,000 Americans still be alive?

With less than 4 months left before the next election it is probably too late for our Senators to redeem themselves in the eyes of 50 percent of the people living in South Dakota. Example: When the Trump Administration was cutting and nearly eliminating Food Stamps, as Act that has protected the lives of Native Americans for generations, where were our fearless leaders?
