In the last three days, Better Idaho has searched the websites, news releases, Facebook pages and Twitter accounts of Idaho’s Congressmen for their reaction to Donald Trump’s suggestion that the United States faith-test people before they enter this country.

Obviously, these men would want to denounce a fellow Republican whose rhetoric is meant to radicalize members of the GOP.

Here’s their reaction.

Raul-Labrador-MATTEFrom REP. RAUL LABRADOR

Nothing

 

 

 

 

 

Mike-Simpson-MATTEFrom REP. MIKE SIMPSON

Nothing

However, back in August, Simpson said Trump’s campaign would “burn out.”

 

 

 

 

 

Mike-Crapo-MATTEFrom SEN. MIKE CRAPO

Nothing

Although a few months ago he said Trump had “struck a nerve” with the American people.

 

 

 

 

Jim-Risch-MATTEFrom SEN. JIM RISCH

Nothing

 

 

 

 

 

We thought this was a bit odd. Aren’t all members of a religion, nationality or political organization responsible for speaking out against the radicalized behavior of extremists?

If not, why do we hear this (18 second video)?

Ultimately, the Idaho congressional delegation seems to have arrived at one of two possible conclusions.

  1. It’s not up to members of any group to denounce the horrible behavior of one of its members.
  2. These men agree with Trump’s “radical interpretations.”

We’re hoping it’s number 1.
