The U.S.’s abandonment of its membership on the UN Human Rights Council was caged as a response to supposed anti-Israel bias by the group, but most observers see the suspicious synchronicity of the departure from the human rights group as a resignation before being fired in light of the atrocities our country is currently perpetuating on our southern border by tearing immigrant families apart.
The sudden departure from the UN council did not escape the notice of one of President Trump’s most persistent critics, the former Mexican President Vicente Fox Quesada, who jumped on Twitter to attack the cowardly move and pose a question that all Americans should look deeply into their hearts to answer.

Really? The U.S. is out of the UN Human Rights Council, in the middle of a humanitarian crisis in the border. From zero to @realDonaldTrump, how much of a blatant scum does someone need to be proud of what's going on?

It’s no surprise that the former Mexican president rates Donald Trump at the highest end of the blatant scum scale given their past battles over Trump’s ludicrous claim that our southern neighbor will pay for the futile wall that he wants to build along the border.
Judging from the responses to his tweet, he’s not the only one who would describe President Trump using such appropriately derogatory terms.
He holds the honor of the worlds biggest scumllllllll not just now….always and forever!!!!!

It’s horrible. I called the UN to see if they can do something to stop the US from tearing families apart (and I live here). I wish I could ease the pain and fear of every single person who is caught up in this evil administration’s actions.

We need our x-allies help. Like any abuser Trump is isolating his victim. Unfortunately, the USA is his victim. There will be blood in the streets very soon. pic.twitter.com/aotNU6hFRI

American over here.
Sending SOS smoke signals.
Please allies, don't abandon us.
The resistance will be rebelling in force this November, at the ballot box. #Resist

I hope Mexico knows that the majority of us don't support this and we are heartbroken and disgusted by what is happening.

As an American, I weep and hang my head in shame. Thank you Vicente for being a voice of reason. I love you for that.

He is a human rights violation. He should be charged in the World Court for crimes against humanity.

That there are hundreds of replies just like this should give former President Fox some hope that not all his northern neighbors fall on the Trump side of the blatant scum scale.
Unfortunately, until we rid the U.S. government of Trump and his Republican enablers, the needle will be pressed to the scummiest side of the scale.
