Trump and those “disgusting” women

I’ve noticed that billionaire reality show host and professional talker Donald Trump really seems to have some personal issues when it comes to women’s bodily functions.

Exhibit A: Hillary Clinton used the bathroom during a break in the Dec. 19 Democratic debate. Trump felt the need to comment, as if he had a reliable source seated in the next stall.

“I know where she went, it’s disgusting, I don’t want to talk about it,” Trump said during a campaign rally on Dec. 20. “No, it’s too disgusting. Don’t say it, it’s disgusting, let’s not talk, we want to be very, very straight up. But I thought that, wasn’t that a weird deal.”

Exhibit B: Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly questioned Trump during the Aug. 7 Republican debate about his past comments concerning women. “You call women you don’t like ‘fat pigs,’ ‘dogs,’ ‘slobs’’ and ‘disgusting animals,” Kelly reminded Trump.

“Blood was coming out of her eyes, coming out of her whatever,” Trump said the next day, later issuing a tweet saying he was, of course, talking about her nose, and that anyone who thought otherwise was — wait for it — “disgusting.”

Exhibit C: During a three-hour deposition in a real estate case involving Trump and the mother of a three-year-old daughter a few years back, the mother made the mistake of saying she needed to take a break to get milk for her child and got out a breast pump.

Trump, apparently grossed out by the thought that women’s breasts could be used for anything other than his own amusement, called the woman “disgusting” and abruptly left the room, calling off the deposition for the rest of the day. Later, as if to add an exclamation point to his earlier comment, he noted that her attorney’s questioning in the case had been “very stupid.”

I could continue with more examples (the Rosie O’Donnell feud comes to mind), but you get the point.

One thing I’ve noticed is that, following each childish outburst showcasing his capacity for bombast and locker room ethics, Trump inevitably fires off a comeback seeking to dismiss the resulting outrage and public calls for an apology.

Then he explains all of it away: His quotes were misinterpreted by the media. The woman is a whiner or simply unprofessional. His opponents are desperate losers, and so on.

Makes one wonder how this thrice-married misogynist can even bear to be around women with all of these well — disgusting — things going on. But will there be separate quarters for the First Lady? Stay tuned.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
