Yeah, fuck that nonsense. Especially when it comes from Republicans. If you support Donald Trump, you are unqualified to criticize anyone else for their imperfections.

I'm not willing to disqualify every damned Democrat for being imperfect.

And I'm no longer willing to listen to Democrats who insist that every Democrat be perfect. Fuck off already (generic you, no one here) with the extremist tone policing of your own damned side. If you're willing to see horrible people on the other side elected because our person made a few mistakes or isn't spotless, then you were never on our side.
If this was a Biden one-time oops I am with you.

But when we can see it repeated over and over this is not punishing someone for not being perfect. It is punishing someone for being a consistent creep.
