Yours Truly recently wrote about how the modern GOP has officially become the anti-woman party. Little did we know however that just a few days after that, President Trump would cement this GOP anti-woman legacy into history with his shameful attack on Dr Christine Blasey Ford, a sexual assault survivor, at one of his political rallies. Never would anyone have imagined that a sitting President of the United States would use the presidential podium to lobby verbal attacks at a sexual assault victim, whether they believed the allegations or not.
So you say, “But @Emolclause, Trump is an equal opportunity verbal attacker. It is very convenient how you are singling out the ‘seriousness’ of his verbal attack on Dr. Ford.” Well here’s why Trump’s attack on Dr.Ford is not only very serious, but also differs significantly from his verbal attacks on others. When Dr Ford appeared before the senate judiciary committee, she was asked by Sen Patrick Leahy (D-VT) what still hurts her the most about the decades old incident. Dr Ford responded that what she still remembers to this day is Kavanaugh and his friend Mark Judge laughing “at her expense”. Specifically Dr Ford said:
“Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter, the uproarious laughter between the two [Kavanaugh & Mark Judge], and their having fun at my expense.”
Well, Trump and his adoring fans at the Southaven, Mississippi rally did exactly that. Trump basically called Dr Ford a liar to “uproarious” applause from his fans, essentially punishing Dr Ford all over again. This is totally unacceptable and reprehensible behavior by anybody let alone a sitting President of the United States. Even in the hyper partisan political times we find ourselves in, all reasonable people will agree that there is absolutely no excuse for mocking a sexual assault survivor from the presidential podium.
Bottom line women voters you have a choice this November. A lot of this anti-woman madness we are witnessing from the GOP can be cured by multitudes of women registering to vote and then “neutering” the anti-woman GOP in November by voting in Democrats both at the federal and state levels. Simply put there is a very viable solution to this GOP anti-woman madness–The Vote!!
For those of you very happy with @Emolclause’s activism don’t shy away from the “tip jar” below on your way out
