Double standard? Dem senator calls for investigation into Trump's EPA over something Obama's EPA did

Quote:
Sen. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.) has called for an investigation into the Environmental Protection Agency to determine whether the agency broke federal law by granting small oil refineries waivers to bypass regulations mandating that corn ethanol be mixed into their gasoline supply.

However, the liberal lawmaker was silent when the Obama administration granted the exact same waivers.

Complaining when Trump does something when they were silent when Obama did the same thing is now standard fare...

I still recall when Obama kept children in cages, yet "Orangeman bad!"...

I also recall the Left attacking Trump for border patrol using gas and pepper spray at the border, but was actually done with much more frequency under Obama...

During election time, and right after, I've often said "Every four years, people see things for the first time...again."...With Trump, it's now an everyday occurrence...

Are you suggesting President Obama took "kickbacks" when he did these waivers?

My immediate reaction also.

Trump could cure cancer, and the left would have a problem with it.....

If Trump cured cancer, all we would hear about were all the research people out of work, and that Trump doesn't care about them.

Stress levels drop, don't they?

But the media loves piling it on, to keep everything agitated and people on edge.

Breaks are necessary sometimes!
