Disgusting How Trump treats women
By James A. Haught
The more America learns about Donald Trump, the more disgusting he becomes.
Early last week, the Associated Press revealed that he constantly demeaned women on the set of his TV show, “The Apprentice” — rating them on the size of their breasts, loudly declaring which ones he wanted for sex.
He uttered many of the slurs while television cameras rolled, as if he didn’t mind whether people heard his crudities. “He just doesn’t care,” one set worker said.
Late last week, more damning evidence surfaced. A 2005 video recorded Trump boasting that his stardom allowed him to grope and fondle women however he wanted.
“When you’re a star, they let you do it,” he said. “You can do anything. Grab them by the p—–. You can do anything.”
He talked of trying to have sex with a woman, and raved about her breast implants. The video was recorded just after he married his third wife, Melania.
During the weekend, it was revealed that Trump engaged in smutty sex talk repeatedly on the radio show of “shock jock” Howard Stern. They agreed on the air that Trump’s daughter Ivanka was a lovely “piece of ass.” They said age 35 was “check-out time” for women, when men should find younger bedmates. And Trump bragged about “threesomes.”
All these vulgarities come on the heels of Trump’s scorn for overweight women, whom he calls “pigs” and “slobs” — and his contempt for a beauty queen who gained weight. Repeatedly, he displays the immaturity of a pubescent boy.
Major Republicans are horrified at what Trump is doing to their party, only a month before the presidential election. GOP Chairman Reince Priebus declared: “No woman should ever be described in these terms or talked about in this manner. Ever.”
House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., said he was “sickened” by the video and cancelled a public appearance with Trump. A string of other top Republicans denounced Trump or revoked their endorsement of him.
Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton said simply: “This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president.”
Trump went to the Sunday night debate in disgrace, but he displayed arrogance. He seemed to contend that his sexual affronts weren’t as bad as ISIS atrocities. He vowed to put Clinton in prison, should he gain the White House.
Allowing him into the White House would be a nightmare for America.
