I'm interested in reading it, but my emotions about that night are still pretty raw. There were definitely problems with the candidate and her campaign, but that in no way a justifies electing an outright authoritarian and demagogue to the White House.
Eventually, Trump voters will see this beyond strict party ID and ideology: he is and always has been wrong for our country, and better suited for a dictatorship.
Jeez. Calm down. He's not THAT bad.
He got caught on a hot mic bragging about raping women
Well, not raping. Just sexually assaulting a married woman. As she was walking towards him. I can't believe that's a distinction that must be made and I also can't believe how quickly Republicans have forgiven it. Partisanship is a pretty sad thing.
He was bragging about how being famous allowed him to get laid. 11 years ago. When he told Billy Bush "They let me do it because I'm famous", sure...it was uncouth, but letting him do it implies "consent".
If Trump walked on water, you liberals would say he couldn't swim.
Before he said that they let him do anything he also said "I don't even wait" which implies that he was not asking for consent.
I think the generalization of Trump is ridiculous coming from liberals who always say "Don't generalize". He attacks Rosie O'Donnell. That doesn't mean he attacks "women". He attacks the Khan father. That doesn't mean he attacks "Gold star families".
If he yelled at one crazy liberal employee of a Wal-Mart, would that mean "Donald Trump yells at Wal-Mart employee(S)?" plural? No. He yelled at one.
"I moved on her. I tried, and I failed." If he was a "rapist" he wouldn't be saying how he "failed". You guys are ridiculous. This is why you lose elections.
This is why feminists always scream about all the rapes that go unpunished. Because under the actual law, they are not actual rapes.
I think that you (and other conservatives) have let Trump off the hook just goes to show how completely hypocritical you all are, considering Bill Clinton is often deemed a rapist by you lot.
If a tape of Hillary had been leaked saying something along the lines of, "I just walk right up and immediately grab their dicks, I don't even wait," what would your response be? I would bet you a lot of money she would have been shamed much more than Trump ever was over his comments.
Regarding women, it was never just Rosie O'Donnell that Adolf talked badly about. If you don't already know that, then you haven't paid any serious attention at all during the last few years (even though his statements go back much further, I can't fault you for not knowing about them when he wasn't campaigning for prez).
If a Democratic presidential candidate said any of the following about women, how do you think conservatives would react?
"You're disgusting." (said to a breastfeeding mother)
"If ____ can't satisfy her husband, what makes her think she can satisfy America?"
"26,000 unreported sexual assults in the military-only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?"
"Look at that face. Would anybody vote for that?" (regarding a female contender)
"Yeah, she’s really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father..."
"If _____ weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her."
"Now, somebody who a lot of people don’t give credit to but in actuality is really beautiful is Paris Hilton. I’ve known Paris Hilton from the time she’s 12. Her parents are friends of mine, and the first time I saw her she walked into a room and I said, ‘Who the hell is that?'"
"It must be a pretty picture, you dropping to your knees."
"It doesn't really matter what (they) write as long as you've got a young and beautiful piece of a**."
"Wonderful looking while on the ice but up close and personal, she could only be described as attractive if you like a woman with a bad complexion who is built like a linebacker."
"You have to treat em like sh**." (regarding women)
"I have days where, if I come home — and I don't want to sound too much like a chauvinist, but when I come home and dinner's not ready, I go through the roof."
"I think that putting a wife to work is a very dangerous thing."
"There are basically three types of women and reactions. One is the good woman who very much loves her future husband, solely for himself, but refuses to sign the agreement on principle. I fully understand this, but the man should take a pass anyway and find someone else. The other is the calculating woman who refuses to sign the prenuptial agreement because she is expecting to take advantage of the poor, unsuspecting sucker she’s got in her grasp. There is also the woman who will openly and quickly sign a prenuptial agreement in order to make a quick hit and take the money given to her."
I guarantee you that if a Democratic presidential candidate said even just one of those things, you would flip your lid (and rightfully so).
