This is all so stupefying in its obviousness. If the Democrats want to make an issue about how much of a sexist pig Donald Trump was during the 1980s and 1990s then it’s perfectly fair game for the GOP to go after a potential White House co-resident for his own sexually derogatory behavior during the exact same time period. They can’t have it both ways.
For this reason alone it’s extremely unwise for Clinton and the Dems to still be actively going down the path of sexual reprobation, or to rely upon the supposedly hurt feelings of a woman who willingly participated in the nonsense of a notoriously demeaning international beauty pageant, just to make a point about their opponent’s sexist behavior.
All of this cant and sanctimonious language is becoming just unbearable, especially when it comes from a corporate media that every day exploits women’s bodies for financial gain. And do these “liberals” and characters on TV really think there’s something ethically legitimate about a beauty pageant (of all things) to be worrying so much about a reaction to? Or express anger for?
Talk about antediluvian. Trump’s right: this isn’t the Nobel Peace Prize, and your own hands aren’t as clean as you think they are.
Such partisan-liberal reaction is total and complete hypocrisy; and to actually see male TV personalities now going out of their way to tsk-tsk Donald Trump for doing the kinds of things and possessing the same sorts of derogatory impulses that each and every one of them have exhibited at some time in their own lives is almost terminal in its audacity. There but for the grace of god go you, dudes.
In other words, who hasn’t commented on some woman’s weight or looks, male or (especially) female?
Bill Clinton can be a valid issue here for the very reason that he too might be living in the White House. Sooner or later one of the smarter Republicans is going to frame it that way (if there are any). So let’s stick to the real concerns now Dems, ok?
The media’s just itching to revel in this crap, and are looking for any excuse they can find to do so. They’ll simultaneously castigate and celebrate what a good story it is. So stay away from sex and beauty pageants — because there’s plenty of other stuff to get Trump on.
