Preet Bharara: Problem with Trump isn’t ideology, it’s his ‘lack of decency’

Former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara slammed President Trump Thursday, saying the problem people have with Trump isn’t about his policies or ideology, but his “lack of decency.”

“Much of the issue with Trump is not about party, policy or ideology, but lack of decency, honesty, character, temperament, adulthood, shame,” Bharara, who was fired by Trump in March, tweeted.

{mosads}Bharara’s tweet comes after Trump faced widespread criticism for early-morning tweets on Thursday in which he said “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski was “bleeding badly from a face-lift” when he saw her last year at his Mar-a-Lago resort.

Trump’s tweets drew bipartisan outrage from politicians on both sides of the aisle, with Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) calling the tweets “beneath the office” of the president and Rep. Shelia Jackson Lee (D-Texas) calling on Trump to resign over the tweets.

Bharara has been a frequent critic of Trump since his firing. Earlier this month, he said there was “absolutely” evidence to begin an obstruction of justice case against Trump, and also criticized Trump for his firing of former FBI Director James Comey.
