The latest media frenzy is Donald Trump’s rude/crude remarks about women captured on a hot mic over 10 years ago. I’m not here to defend Donald Trump’s words. But I certainly am not “offended” by them. When it comes to these types of dumb remarks by men, I chalk it up to the late Joan Rivers’ social observation and incorporated in her brilliant book title, “Men are Stupid and They Like Big Boobs.” That sums it up. End of story.
I’d love to take a poll of all those Republicans in Congress that are now backing away from Trump and ask them if they ever ogled a woman and said something about her physical appearance or what they’d like to do to her. Unfortunately, they’d probably lie (as most politicians do) and say, “Never!” “Not me!” “I would never say anything like that – I have a wife and a daughter!” Yeah, right. It’s what guys do when we’re not around.
For me, what is more despicable about this story is not Trump’s words but the hypocrisy of the people involved. I, of course, refer to the Democrat nominee, Hillary Clinton, and her feigned “shock” at Trump’s statements about beautiful women. In her mind, it’s ok for her husband to have done these things, but it’s not ok for Trump to talk about them.
If we’re going to draw attention to the candidates’ words alone, how about considering Hillary’s own filthy mouth for a moment:
“Where is the G-damn f**king flag? I want the G-damn f**king flag up every f**king morning at f**king sunrise.”
(From the book “Inside The White House” by Ronald Kessler, p. 244 – Hillary to the staff at the Arkansas Governor’s mansion on Labor Day, 1991.)
F**k off! It’s enough that I have to see you shit-kickers every day, I’m not going to talk to you too!! Just do your G*damn job and keep your mouth shut.”
(From the book “American Evita” by Christopher Anderson, p. 90 – Hillary to her State Trooper bodyguards after one of them greeted her with “Good morning.”)
“You f**king idiot.”
(From the book “Crossfire” by L.D. Brown, p. 84 – Hillary to a State Trooper who was driving her to an event.)
“If you want to remain on this detail, get your f**king ass over here and grab those bags!”
(From the book “The First Partner” by Joyce Milton, p. 259 – Hillary to a Secret Service Agent who was reluctant to carry her luggage because he wanted to keep his hands free in case of an incident.)
“Get f**ked! Get the f**k out of my way! Get out of my face!”
(From the book “Hillary’s Scheme” by Carl Limbacher, p. 89 – Hillary’s various comments to her Secret Service detail agents.)
“Stay the f**k back, stay the f**k away from me! Don’t come within ten yards of me, or else! Just f**king do as I say, Okay!?”
(From the book “Unlimited Access”, by Clinton FBI Agent in Charge, Gary Aldrich, p. 139 – Hillary screaming at her Secret Service detail.)
“Where’s the miserable c*cksucker?”
(From the book “The Truth About Hillary” by Edward Klein, p. 5 – Hillary shouting at a Secret Service officer.)
“Come on Bill, put your dick up! You can’t f**k her here!”
(From the book “Inside The White House” by Ronald Kessler, p. 243 – Hillary to Gov. Clinton when she spots him talking with an attractive female at an Arkansas political rally.)
“You know, I’m going to start thanking the woman who cleans the restroom in the building I work in. I’m going to start thinking of her as a human being.”
(From the book “The Case Against Hillary Clinton” by Peggy Noonan, p. 55.)
Most of her tirades were directed at those who are paid by us, the taxpayers, to protect this woman.
More importantly, aside from Hillary’s own words, there are the actions of her husband, the disbarred, impeached 42nd President of the United States, Bill Clinton, who she so willingly protected and enabled, who didn’t just talk about molesting, groping and assaulting women – but actually did it.
Does anyone remember Hillary’s handling of the “bimbo eruptions” during the 1992 Presidential campaign to silence all the women who attempted to speak about Bubba’s sexual assaults and infidelity?
How about the infamous Monica Lewinsky, who, as a White House intern, fellated the President in the Oval Office. Rather than championing the rights of subordinates in the workplace against the actions of their superiors, Hillary defended her husband’s actions, wanted her story destroyed and called Ms. Lewinsky a “narcissistic loony toon.”
And then there’s the long list of women who Bill Clinton assaulted: Paula Jones, Juanita Broderick, Kathleen Willey, Eileen Wellstone, Carolyn Moffet, Elizabeth Ward Gracen, Becky Brown, Helen Dowdy, and Cristy Zercher. And, there is, of course, Gennifer Flowers, who, during the 1992 Presidential campaign, claimed to have had a 12-year affair with him; although he initially denied the claim, he later admitted it was a one-time affair.
In my mind, assaults on women are far more egregious than the stupid, sophomoric comments by Trump. Yet, in all likelihood, the American people would rather have a serial philanderer as the First Gentleman (and I use that word very loosely) in the White House.
So, I don’t find Trump’s comments disgusting. What I find disgusting is the blatant cover-up by Hillary of her husband’s wrongdoings and blaming the women, her involvement in the Benghazi massacre and her lying to Sean Smith’s mother, her maintaining a personal server in her basement, the erasing of tens of thousands of emails, her receiving not even a slap on the wrist by the FBI for her handling of classified information, her Foundation accepting millions of dollars from foreign governments who treat women as second-class citizens or worse, her orchestration of the disastrous Iran deal, etc., etc., etc.
I don’t get it, but if you do, God bless you.
