Hog Trump Goes After The #MeToo Movement
We always knew that Donald Trump was a sexist pig, even before he became president.
A misogynist, a groper, a pervert.
Even the media knew that.
But his supporters didn't care, many of them being hogs themselves, and they voted for him anyway.
And now he's doubling down and going after the #MeToo movement.
And has never sounded more piggy.
President Trump thrust himself into the national debate over sexual misconduct on Saturday, asserting that “a mere allegation” could destroy the lives of those accused, as his own White House was engulfed by charges of abusive behavior.
The statement echoed Mr. Trump’s dismissive response to allegations of sexual misconduct or abuse made over decades against male friends, colleagues and, above all, himself.
Or more pathetic.
At a time when charges of sexual harassment and abuse are bringing down famous and powerful men from Hollywood to Washington, Mr. Trump’s defiant stance put him at odds with much of the country, and served as a stark reminder of his own troubled history with women.
Especially since his record speaks for itself...
Or honks for itself.
He defended the pervert Roy Moore even though Moore was accused of preying on teenage girls.
And just the other day, when presented with evidence his staff secretary Rob Porter has a long history of domestic abuse.
He praised him anyway.
“He did a very good job when he was in the White House, and we wish him well.” The president made no mention of the women Mr. Porter is said to have abused — a point several of the president’s critics noted.
As only he could.
Even if that left his chief of staff John Kelly looking like a porker himself...
Or a relic from the past.
But if the grubby Trump thinks he can get away it, he is sadly mistaken. For his support among women voters is tanking.
His approval rating among non-college-educated white women never rises above 54 percent in any age group, even those older than 50. From February through December, Trump’s approval rating fell more with middle-aged blue-collar white women than any other group.
Trump’s position has also eroded since 2016 among college-educated white women. In 2016, those white-collar voters preferred Hillary Clinton over Trump but gave her only 51 percent of their votes. Now, in the 2017 average, 66 percent of them disapproved of Trump and 58 percent strongly disapproved. In every age cohort, at least three-fifths of them disapproved.
And since there are more female voters than male voters, that's going cost him. Big Time.
Or Pig Time...
And there's nothing the Republicans can do to put lipstick on that one.
And the best news, or the supreme irony?
Trump's porky behaviour helped create the #MeToo movement.
To some critics, Mr. Trump’s defensive tone on Saturday was less a setback for the #MeToo movement than evidence of its success — a political and social tidal wave crashing on the doorstep of the White House.
The magnificent movement that is growing stronger by the day...
The one I'm proud to support.
And the one that will help destroy him.
Or as you know I like to say eh?
Put that grubby porker pervert in the place where he belongs...

Simon, I'd like to know where is Ivanka(the champion of women) in all of this? She had her chance to take a stand and put daddy in his place but she has seemingly proven that his cash stream is more important to her than his constant shit stream of misogynistic and abuse enabling tendencies.#Not me too$$.
Enter Melania. She could give her two-timing husband a well deserved kick in the tangerines by publicly shaming the Douche Of Office. Hey, with this ridiculously dysfunctional white house anything is possible right? Go for it Melania!#Me too angry:(.
I believe the only way Trump would publicly condemn any of his white male friends is if it hits close to home. How long will it be before Porter starts using Hope Hicks as his punching bag, if he hasn't already? What would Trump do if Ivanka were to be abused by Kushner? Would he believe Ivanka's "mere" allegation?
This is a pattern among a growing number of Repugnicon males and no surprise that their daily doses of deceit and sleaze in the name of Trump has turned them into hollow shells devoid of any moral compass, respect for themselves or anyone else. Such are the perils of selling your soul to the devil himself, Donald Trump.
Sloppy Scumbag Steve Bannon is soiling his pants in fear that "women are going to take over ... and overturn ten thousand years of recorded history." He says that like it's a bad thing. Not all men are pigs; witness your Trudeau and France's Macron, among others, but the system has been a "man's world" for far too long and it's about time women had the opportunity to sit in the driver's seat (as they finally are, literally, in Saudi Arabia of all places). Silicon Valley has too many James Damores and not enough, I don't know, Lindy Wests and Jessica Valentis. Perhaps if women were in charge, and were allowed to be bigly important with the cyber, there'd be a lot less tolerance for trolling and hatred in the name of "free speech" and "objective data." And a lot less of it in the political realm, in education, in the arts-and-culture professions and in general society. Bannon can go day-drink himself into oblivion for all I care. I was #WithHer in 2016 and I'm with all the #metoos who are mad as hell and not going to take this anymore. Time's up, Dotard and company. STFU and GTFO.
Emperor Trump is the savior of the white race. All you liberals should be deported to Venezuela.
Dotard probably covfefe'd his own daughter. Do an image search for "Donald Trump creepy Ivanka" and you'll see any number of disturbing displays of "affection" between daddy and his purdy little girl. A lap dance at a 1988 Beach Boys concert, suggestive poses in his bed, sloppy smooches at campaign rallies... ugh. And who knows what else might have transpired; in Tatum O'Neal's memoir she writes about Ryan offering her as collateral to a drug dealer to whom he owed a debt. So it wouldn't surprise me in the least if Dotard served up Ivanka to any of his thug Russian money-masters. Especially considering his friendship with Jeff Epstein, and the epidemic of underage sex trafficking in Eastern Europe that is often disguised as -- what else -- modeling contracts and beauty pageants.
And we all know that Repugnicons project more than an IMAX theater showing movies on the surface of the moon, so why wouldn't the "Pizzagate" they smeared Hillary with be predominantly their domain? The mere thought of what this craven sociopath or outright psychopath is capable of makes me sick, and I wonder if Robert Mueller is getting the willies digging into Trump's finances and everything else going back 40 years. For all anyone knows, he might very well be looking into a cold Russian abyss of pure evil involving children. Particularly if those pee hookers were themselves "little Ivankas."
As for Melania, she's just being icy towards him and reportedly doesn't even live in the WH anymore, particularly after #Stormygate was revealed. But she's not going to do anything that would jeopardize her own financial security. She's probably holding out for a book deal or a TV interview after he dies, and no doubt the usual sensationalists at Dateline, 60 Minutes, even Oprah will be sure to come calling. Both of them are #complicit and self-serving for their own benefit, which is why the only one I really feel any pity for is Barron. His older half-brothers are $%&holes, particularly Junior who was all over Twitter the other day picking on Trudeau with anti-transgender insults, and jumping aboard the bandwagon of jealous, perverted conspiracy nutters who spread BS about his sexual orientation, his marriage, the circumstances of his birth, and even the nature of the relationship between him and his own mother. Eric is the ugly-as-sin potato head who goes on sport safaris with Junior, and we know what psychologists say about kids who take pleasure in abusing animals. Tiffany is invisible and may as well not exist, but is apparently just as much a spoiled brat as her half-sister and still competing with the princess for Paw-paw's attention (ick).
The whole family is garbage who belongs exiled permanently to a gulag in Siberia, except for the youngest one. If this were a movie, he'd get adopted by the Obamas or Trudeaus and grow up to be a liberal Democratic president in 2048, or the prime minister of Canada in 2047. That's not likely to happen. But hopefully something positive can be done for this poor boy before it's too late.
Letter: What would Leonard do?
Kelowna letter-writer updates a Leonard Cohen song for ‘Trump’ times
Stephen Fearing - Blowhard Nation
Blowhard Nation – As a spectator of Donald Trump’s con-man campaign of hate and fear, ‘Blowhard bhn-artwork-small-fileNation’ came from a place of sarcastic outrage and ended up a Merle Haggard-inspired roots rock anthem. My desire to write the song came from an instinctual reaction to the politics of hate and grew into a desire to express my belief that voting for Trump or Brexit or The National Front is voting for bedlam. On the surface, these candidates may appear to scratch the itch that has driven you crazy, but in the end they will claw you to death and steal your humanity.
I wonder if Trump is concerned about his wife bashing secretary, or whether he is worried that the #MeToo movement is about to expose even more of his hoggy behaviour. That movement is the best thing to come out of Trump's rotten presidency, and if it did help bring him down it would be fantastic.
Various "TIME" magazine covers:
The poor Indigenous peoples of Siberia have had enough problems with the European Russians to inflict the Trump family on them!
Ever since I saw the Trumpdumbkids posing with a magnificent leopard they murdered for sport (not in self-defence) I want to send them to the leopard's hunting grounds. Oh, they could have a Swiss Army knife or two. We'll see who wins, and I'm betting on the cat.
It's not Barron's fault, but what a ridiculous name. A business magazine or a not-very-major member of the nobility?
The Trump White House is now like a game of musical chairs or a mob opera. One moment you're there, the next moment you're not. If it wasn't so dangerous, it would be hilarious. They say Trump likes chaos, but he doesn't seem to realize how ridiculous he looks. I loved your fine collection of piggies Simon, but personally I can't wait until Mueller catches up with him, and turns that hog into bacon. :)
Who knew playing the game of media Whack A Mole would be so hard. Basking in the warm glow of the #ReleaseTheMemo coup one day only to be broadsided by the #MeToo movement the next. Now even the loyal Hicks is on the firing line with insinuations she may have a roving eye for abusers in addition to some obstruction of justice issues. Add to that a little Bannon sensationalism and its becoming a living nightmare. "You watch. The time has come. Women are gonna take charge of society," Bannon said, according to Green's report. "And they couldn't juxtapose a better villain than Trump. He is the patriarch."
hi JD...I don't know where Ivanka is these days. I seem to remember she angered Big Daddy by saying something he didn't like, and General Kelly has exiled her to an empty part of the White House along with her hapless husband. But let's face it, neither she or Melania can do anything in a pig sty like that one. Melania has her separate bedroom that I bet she locks at night. And the White House is such a Con pig sty it will ned to be sterilized before the next Democratic president moves in. But as I pointed out in my post, female voters are abandoning Trump in droves, and it will be interesting to see how many seats it will cost him in the mid term elections. I'm betting quite a few...
hi Jackie... I was going to mention that Trump is extremely frustrated that he cannot bounce Ivanka on his knee lest the nosy parkers from the Secret Service arrest him, but I decided I had already inflicted enough piggery on my readers. ;) But seriously though, two things are becoming even more obvious than they were. The last election was heavily influenced by naked misogyny, and the women of the #MeToo movement will heavily influence the result of the next one...
h Jackie...since I was about seventeen I have believed that only women can save the world, and what has happened since Trump came to power, has only reinforced that belief. And me and my male friends all stand ready to help them...
hi anon@1:56...well at the present time, with temperatures in the Great White North ranging from icy to freezing, I would welcome a chance to be deported to Venezuela. But as for "Emperor" Trump being the "saviour" of the white race, with a saviour like that who needs enemies?
P.S. can I now call him the Orange Nero?
hi anon or is that you David? Thank you for those links, and those YouTubes. I'm definitely going to have to find an excuse to play Blowhard Nation... :)
hi anon@3:58...I don't know if Trump is worried about whether the #MeToo movement is getting ready to come for him, as he's such a psychopath and has so many other things to worry about. But I haven't the slightest doubt that the movement will play a huge role in bringing him down. Women are leading the resistance, and I couldn't be more delighted...
hi David...Pin Head is such a genius, and if he can avoid being suspended from Twitter, as he has been twice already, I really look forward to the material he will produce during the final battle to dethrone Trump...
hi anon@6:15AM...yes, my feelings exactly. I have a pretty good graphic of Homer, a big piece of bacon, and Stephen Harper, so I may have to repurpose it. One for Trump and the other for Scheer mmmm... ;)
hi RT...Whack-A-Mole is a good description of the state of the White House these days. It's like the fall of Rome, first they fight, then they start sleeping with each other, and then Mueller and his barbarians come crashing through the door and take them all away in chains... ;)

Unwelcome Attention for John Kelly, the Man Enlisted to Bring Calm
Mr. Kelly has previously played down accusations against someone he believed served a greater goal. He appeared as a character witness in a 2016 court-martial of a Marine colonel accused of sexually harassing two female subordinates. Mr. Kelly praised the colonel as a “superb Marine officer.”
