Why is the media waiting on a Republican to call for Trumps resignation?

I'm sick of watching the very same media who was complicit in electing Donald Trump, look at these politicians and wait on them to say the words.

Why wont somebody John Hancock up to the live tv world and say, "Mr. President, it's time you left for the best of the country."

Other than not wanting to be the first person to do that, I maybe can sympathize a little? > * < Somebody has to be the first, when John Hancovk signed that treasonous document that could have him swing from the gallows. He bellied up to the table and made damn sure, the entire world know who John Hancock is.

1. They could come close but it's not their job to go all the way.

3. It wasnt their job to help him get elected either.

Every second that scum was on tv for free, sometimes it was just his empty podium for 5 minutes, they helped him.

I disagree, I believe the free press has that responsibility. But I'm just some schlub that's pissed.

I know we are a nation of laws, so I'm not looking for pitchforks. I'm just looking hoping to see someone with some integrity, and the intestinal fortitude to be the first one to call for it.

🤷🏼‍♂️

6. Agree.

With very few exceptions, the profession ain't what it use to be. Like a lot of things, the quest for money inflicted a lot of damage.

4. It's an extension of IOKIYAAR.

None of the people in the majority matter in this country.

Even though we buy everything and make everything.

5. I just had a similar thought about the media.

I've posted this before. I clearly remember when the headlines in both print media and on TV news were touting the brouhaha over the discovery of President Clinton's dalliance with an intern as a "Constitutional Crisis" every day. I was furious over the sensationalism of that as if our country was going to fall apart because he fooled around.

Why aren't they calling this a "Constitutional Crisis"? I sure think it is.
