First, apologies for being MIA lately. I wore myself to a nub staying up many midnights watching this train wreck of an election unfold. So I went to sea last week and kept the TV off until the third debate Oct. 19 and the Al Smith dinner for Catholic charities the following night. Donald Trump didn’t disappoint with his many indefensible remarks.
The world owes Trump gratitude for calling Hillary Clinton “a nasty woman” during the debate. It was galvanizing, coming from a man whose actions and words have been far nastier and degrading to more people than any other candidate in U.S. history.
Even in attempting to fend off charges of groping and lip-locking female strangers, Trump can’t resist using demeaning language like “Look at her!” insinuating that his accusers are so ugly, he’d never touch them, let alone stick his hands up their skirts or his tongue down their throats.
Slathering on more irony, Trump doesn’t get how he failed spectacularly when he trotted out that gaggle of aging women to rehash similar accusations against Bill Clinton.
Since all parties involved are in or near their dotage, it’s been just pathetic. But it serves to reveal that Trump views all women as objects to be used in whatever disgusting way he wishes.
I hope calling Hillary “a nasty woman” drives the decisive nail into Trump’s political coffin. Women must vote against him in droves. Let’s send him back to his golden tower so he can bring the avalanche of ridiculous lawsuits he’s promised against everyone who’s crossed him, including the New York Times and all his female accusers.
Here’s Megyn Kelly (the Fox reporter Trump said “had blood coming out of her whatever”) trying to nail Trump’s hired gun, Kellyanne Conway, on Trump’s unpopularity with women, and this was even BEFORE the Access Hollywood tape, ensuing accusations, and the last two debates.
But Elizabeth Warren stated women’s case against Trump best in New Hampshire yesterday, so let’s watch her…
Warren made other good points about the irrational down-ticket support that continued to cling to Trump even after he repeatedly disgraced himself, so here’s her full speech if you’re interested…
