Ariana Grande Getting Off Easier Than Donald Trump, GOP Congressman Says
A Republican congressman from South Carolina is calling out America's "double standards" for not bashing Ariana Grande the way it has Donald Trump.
Jeff Duncan said in a Facebook post Saturday he was curious why companies TV networks such as NBC, Univision and ESPN, and other businesses such as record labels and concert venues have not had any response to the recent leak of a video showing the 22-year-old Grande licking donuts and saying, "I hate America."
Meanwhile, those companies were "mighty quick to jump on the 'bash Donald Trump' bandwagon when he spoke about illegal aliens and 'sanctuary city' policies," Duncan wrote.
When announcing his presidential candidacy, Trump said that Mexican migrants to the U.S. are drug traffickers and rapists, as well as "some ... good people." And, since, he has gone on to defend these statements, while losing millions of dollars in sponsorships and other business opportunities.
"This misguided young pop singer said that she hated America and hated Americans, while she proceeded to contaminate food for resale with the very tongue with which she uttered the hatred rant," Duncan's post continued. "The double-standards in this country are disgusting."
