OK, seriously, Donald Trump?!
The real estate mogul turned
tanning addict presidential candidate has not been shy about defending his pal Roger Ailes, the disgraced FOX News exec now facing dozens of sexual harassment allegations, but THIS is even too far beyond all that earlier controversy.
USA Today‘s Kirsten Powers, shocked by Trump’s complete allegiance to a man accused of doing some absolutely grotesque things, interviewed The Donald about the issue and posed an interesting question: what if a man treated his daughter Ivanka Trump the way that Ailes allegedly did so many women?
The Donald’s answer shouldn’t shock us considering his tendency to say ridiculous things, but it still did. He responded:
“I would like to think she would find another career or find another company if that was the case.”
Does Trump not realize that the vast majority of women can’t just up and leave their job without another one already in hand, and that most women who suffer sexual harassment just don’t have the resources of someone like Ivanka?!
Not to mention the fact that, above all, why should a woman be expected to quit her job and leave her career just because she was being sexually harassed by a creep?? Shouldn’t the CREEP have to leave his job instead?!
Not surprisingly, maybe this complete and utter disregard for actual, important women’s issues explains why, even though the Republican candidate believes he’s doing well with women voters, he’s actually getting demolished in that regard.
Wow. Just… wow.
Add this to the list of thousands (millions?!) of reasons why we need to dump Trump in November!
