Sorry, but there is no other way to describe Trump’s campaign anymore than to call it a swamp. And, that is probably an insult to swamps all across the country.
The last week has produced more swamp creatures than an old horror film. These people just keep walking into the mess with eyes wide open and lying to the American people with stupid arguments.
This has been one remarkable week. First we had that awful tape of Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women. Then we had him say on stage at the debate that he never did any of those things he bragged about. Then we have had a string of women come forward and say, yes, he has done those things to them.
The Trump swamp put out all kinds of accusations of their own against the women. After telling America that they should believe everything said about Clinton and her husband, they claim you should not believe anything said negatively about Trump.
They further go on and say that all of this happened decades ago and isn’t relevant, and then say that what happened decades ago with Bill Clinton is relevant.
We were told that the alleged attack on a woman in First Class of an airplane could not have happened because there is a space between the seats. Well, I flew on airplanes in the 80s and 90s and even in First Class a few times. During those days, the seats did not have a space between them only an armrest.
At first Trump claimed that these women are all horrible, horrible liars. Then he attacked the media for “creating” the scandal. Then he blamed the Clintons for creating the scandal. Then he blamed Global Bankers for creating the scandal. Then he said “just look at her, I mean really.” Meaning he wants you to believe the woman was pretty enough for him to bother with.
Mike Pence has been trying to stop the bleeding as well. He keeps saying how Donald Trump “empowers” female employees and has so many women working at his company. Yet only 43 percent of his workforce are women.
But if you really want to know how Trump’s campaign, organization, and even his own family feel about women, you need look no further than Donald Trump, Jr.
Junior crawled out from his hideout in the swamp with some advice for any woman who wishes to enter the workforce. Be prepared to be sexually abused.
In 2013 on the Opie and Anthony Show, which was just unearthed by BuzzFeed, Junior said”
If you can’t handle some of the basic stuff that’s become a problem in the workforce today, then you don’t belong in the workforce.
You should go maybe teach kindergarten. You can’t be negotiating billion-dollar deals if you can’t handle, like, you know.
Apparently Junior doesn’t believe teaching kindergarten is being part of the workforce. He is telling women that if you can’t handle being in a sexually abusive environment, just quit.
Junior also seems to forget that this type of behavior is illegal in the workplace. The Equal Employment Commission says it best:
It is illegal to harass a woman by making offensive comments about women in general.
This whole mess has shown that Donald Trump and his family have been practicing harassment throughout the years. These are not isolated incidents of bad behavior once in a while.
In an interview in 1998 with Chris Matthews, Donald Trump said he hesitated running for political because “my trouble with women” would be a weak point. He knew back then he had a problem with women. Unfortunately, for both him and the country, everyone else now knows about his “problem with women.”
And just to show you how bad his judgement really is, he has hunkered down with Bannon, Bossie, Ailes and Conway to come up with his defense. Bannon is a “silent” leader of the Alt-Right. He even said that his Breitbart was the voice of the Alt-Right. Bossie has made a living trying to create new scandals against the Clintons. And you know all about Roger Ailes and his “problem with women”. Conway was heading up the “legitimate rape” candidate’s campaign.
When Hillary Clinton tried to defend her husband and family she was “an enabler” to Bill’s bad behavior. When Donald Trump calls his accusers “horrible, horrible liar” we are supposed to believe him.
Sometimes I feel like I am at the old drive-in theater when I was younger watching movies like “Swamp Creatures” all over again. Problem is these swamp creatures are more scary than the swamp creatures in the old movies.
