The Democrats have been smearing Donald Trump daily, with assistance by the Mainstream Media from election night 2016 through present day. Actually the smear started before that, as Donald Trump and Melania came down the escalator. This smear campaign/scheme is okay with the Democrats, since they are the ones who initiated it, continue it through their impeachment hearing. Lets not forget, the campaign to impeach began as Trump was taking oath of office.
The Dems are okay with the (their) smear against Trump; but OMG it is a horrible offense, disgusting, appalling to smear an ambassador, especially when they need that ambassador as a tool against Trump.
The Democrats should look in the mirror.
