In 2015, he made fun of Carly Fiorina’s face during the lead up to the Republican Primary for president. In 2016, he denigrated Ted Cruz’s wife Heidi by mocking her appearance and threatening to “spill the beans on [her.]”
Over the years, he has used the terms "fat pigs," "dogs," "slobs" and "disgusting animals" to describe some women.
Today, he called porn actress Stormy Daniels, “Horseface”.
He laughed approvingly while Howard Stern described his daughter Ivanka as a “voluptuous”, “piece of ass.”
He brags about grabbing women “by the pussy.” (His words, not mine).
He criticizes the “low” IQ of some African-American women.
His “terrific guy” friend Kanye West was allowed to use the word “motherfucker” in the Oval Office during a highly promoted and planned visit.
No man or woman in a position of authority in government or political leadership in his Republican Party has stepped toward to check his misogynist attitude and language toward women. They mask their cowardice in this regard by claiming his political agenda is too important to become distracted by his obvious lack of respect for women. Yet, these cowards ask American citizens to respect the Office of President of the United States.
Why should ordinary citizens respect the Office of President when the man who occupies it does not? Nobody ever answers this burning question.
The man we are talking about is Donald J. Trump, America’s 45th president and the so-called “leader” of the free world. Unfortunately, this man is shaping how men in America and around the world will view women in this “very scary time” for young men in the #MeToo era.
The clear message he is sending is this: It is okay for men to bully and degrade women during the era of Trump. He has their backs.
