The hypocrisy on display here
is outstanding, even for Trump.
1. The "sex tape" to which he refers does not seem to exist
. The falsehood began -- but of course!
-- with Alex Jones, scumball extraordinaire
2. Even if this non-existent tape did
exist, so what? What the former Miss Universe did with her life after
her encounter with Trump does not excuse the way Trump acted at that time.
No matter what the surrounding circumstances -- and I'm certainly not going to accept Trump's unverified word for anything, given his history -- one thing is clear: A gentleman does not call a lady "Miss Piggy." Period
. And a gentleman does not refer to a Spanish-speaking lady as "Miss Housekeeping." Period
Call me old school, but if I had ever referred to a girl or woman in those terms, my Mom would have slapped my face so hard my eyes would have popped out of my skull. What kind of people raised Donald J. Trump? Bill Maher was wrong: Fred Trump was clearly a life-form more primitive than the orangutan.
3. Even if this non-existent tape did
exist, by what right does Donald Trump criticize the sexual history of any
woman? He used to hang out at Studio 54, and he would pretend to be his own publicist in order to tell reporters about Donald Trump's sexual prowess. He has acted in icky, inappropriate ways toward his own daughter. He deliberately humiliated his first wife -- while still married to her -- by cheating on her with another woman, then planting a story about the affair with the New York Post in which the new conquest supposedly coos that Donald Trump was the best lover she had ever had.
I've met actual
adult actresses who would never sink so low.
By the way: I'm old enough to recall a time when Melania's nude photos would have been classified as pornography.
4. Should we not judge Trump by the way he treated the women who worked for Trump's modelling agency
? They were often underaged illegal immigrants kept in slave-like conditions, vastly overcharged for their crowded living quarters, and not allowed to keep the money they earned. Trump profited from their exploitation.
How dare Donald Trump attempt to "slut-shame" Alicia Machado? Trump himself is clearly beyond all shame.
Donald Trump is in this situation because he is psychologically incapable of saying "I'm sorry." This man cannot apologize even when doing so would benefit him tactically. He'd be ten points ahead of Hillary right now if he could at least pretend
to be a human being.
One final word about Melania.
I don't want my previous words misunderstood. Yes, I said "I'm old enough to recall a time when Melania's nude photos would have been classified as pornography" -- but do not presume that I personally agree
with said classification. I'm simply reminding the readers of the societal attitudes which prevailed within living memory. Melania is a handsome woman; none of her photos offend me in any way.
What bothers me is the double standard. You know damned well that if the wife of Democrat had ever posed for such photos, Fox News would suddenly become extremely moralistic.
Here we have another example of the IOKIYAR and IACIYAD
