    What stands out to you as a big moment in political cowardice? For me it was Trump bringing Bill Clinton's sexual misconduct accusers to the debate, right after the "grab em by the pussy" audio got released.

    LeTrash James, Greg Popovic and Steve Kerr running their mouths about their liberal politics almost non stop and arrogantly, but then were silent about Hong Kong because it would hurt their wallets.

    Fucking pussies.

    Most recently, Democratic nominees pandering to Gabbard voters and Republican senators keeping quiet about Trump's abuse of power.

    Bernie, Kamala, Warren all referring to the shooting of Mike brown as a "murder."

    not only cowardly, pandering, but dishonest and disgusting.

    1. Lindsey Graham going from principled Trump critic to his most vivacious lackey

    2. Mitt Romney doing the same to a lesser degree

    Trying to divert attention from one's moral failings by saying, "look what that other guy did!" is the height of cowardice.

    There is nothing remotely close to Ted Cruz sucking Trump's dick after Trump called Cruz's wife ugly on social media. It transcends political cowardice to the point where everyone, including his own friends and family, should just shun him for the rest of his life.

    I actually think this thread will be much more interesting if we exclude the past 10 years.

    Lindsey Graham certainly seems to have changed his views of Trump. But Mitt? I disagree.
