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...
