Trump: Misogynistic To The Core

On the biggest stage of his life, Donald Trump couldn’t resist falling back into the anti-woman rhetoric that’s defined his public life. 

Unable to move on from his history of calling women slobs, degenerates, pigs, and a slew of other insults, Trump took aim at someone well acquainted with Trump’s scorn: Alicia Machado. 

The next morning, Trump again couldn’t help himself, going on the offensive against Machado, claiming that she gained a “massive amount of weight“‘ and three times describing her as “the worst.”

“Trump failed on the debate stage, but he failed even more miserably in the hours following,” said American Bridge President Jessica Mackler. “Body-shaming and his anti-woman rhetoric are automatic responses for Donald Trump. Trump is well qualified to be a radio shock jock, but he’s woefully unqualified to be President of the United States.” 

Trump is Trump–misogynistic to the core.

WATCH: McCrory-Made Recession

Governor Pat McCrory’s job-killing HB2 continues to wreak havoc on North Carolina’s economy. Every week the discriminative law accrues more damages — from the NCAA pulling out of the state to more than 50 big investors calling for its repeal, but even as it sinks him in the polls, McCrory won’t back down.

NC Republicans and McCrory could take action to repeal the legislation, but they are too busy blaming everyone else for the problems it’s caused to take responsibility for the catastrophic consequences. No wonder it’s being called a McCrory-made recession.

Trump’s Guide to Losing a Debate

Donald Trump’s post-debate strategy this morning was just about as bad as his real debate strategy last night:

1.) Attack a woman for gaining weight

“It was a Miss Universe person, and she was the worst we ever had, the worst, the absolute worst. She was impossible…She was the winner, and she gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem.”

2.) Raise the expectations (after your guy lost)

“He did a lot of debate prep, Steve. I think that’s a myth that people are pushing sorta to diminish how serious he is about this.”

3.) Blame the moderator for being unfair

“I give [Lester Holt] a C, a C+…He gave me very unfair questions at the end, but you know, I’m not complaining about that.”

4.) Come up with excuses about microphone problems and technical difficulties you had

“I had a problem with the microphone that didn’t work. I don’t […]

Trump is the Worst, the Absolute Worst–on Fox & Friends this Morning

Instead of repairing his meltdown from last night’s debate, Donald Trump went on Fox & Friends to disparage Alicia Machado, the former Miss Universe:

“It was a Miss Universe person, and she was the worst we ever had, the worst, the absolute worst. She was impossible…She was the winner, and she gained a massive amount of weight, and it was a real problem.”

Trump’s War On Women

Once again, Donald Trump went after Hillary Clinton in sexist terms, with nothing to back it up. Throughout his campaign, Donald Trump has launched openly sexist attacks against journalists (e.g., calling Megyn Kelly a “bimbo”), defended past remarks calling women “dogs” and “disgusting animals,” and insisted that women have an easier path through life than men.

But that’s just the beginning of Donald Trump’s decades of following through of his own advice on women: “you have to treat ’em like shit” — and he’s been particularly outspoken on his apparent view that mothers should stay out of the workplace, at least where he’s in charge.

And in a running mate, Trump chose a man that once forcefully assorted with all the authority of a non-expert with no idea what he’s talking about that, “day-care kids get the short end of the emotional stick” and suggested that working mothers’ induce “stunted emotional […]

Donald Trump: Mitt Romney A “Fool” For Waiting Until September 21st To Release Tax Returns

A mere seven weeks before Election Day, Donald Trump is still refusing to release his tax returns. On this day back in 2012, Mitt Romney finally released his own returns after months of back-and-forth on the subject.

In February, however, Trump had some harsh words for Mitt Romney regarding the late release of his tax returns in 2012. In a debate, Trump slammed Romney for waiting so long to release his returns, calling him a “fool” and saying the move “cost him big league.”

A note to The Donald — It’s September 21st. You’re still hiding your tax returns. Who’s the fool now?

Trump Uses Foundation For Corporate Settlements, Brags About Using “Other People’s Money”

This morning we learned that Donald Trump has used his charitable foundation — funded by donors other than himself — to settle legal problems for his for-profit company. Previously, it was revealed that Trump has also used his foundation to illegally pay out donations to politicians,” and this latest revelation looks a whole lot like illegal “self-dealing.”

Jump forward a few hours and Trump was back to bragging about — what else — using “other people’s money” for his personal gain:

“It’s called OPM. I do that all the time in business, it’s called other people’s money. There’s nothing like doing things with other people’s money.”

Trump seems to think that his sketchy, likely illegal, dealings with his foundation prove he’s commander-in-chief material, but if anything it’s further evidence that he puts his own interests first and is fundamentally unfit for office.

WATCH: Trump Pulls Back The Curtain On Cozy Relationship With Rob Portman

Rob Portman and his campaign have tried again and again to distance themselves from Donald Trump, continuously insisting that they’re running their own campaign separate from the bombastic Republican presidential nominee. Regardless of what the Portman campaign claims, the Ohio senator has endorsed Donald Trump and continues to support him after each shameful and outrageous comment — and he’ll have to keep answering as to why he hasn’t denounced the racist, xenophobic nominee.

This morning, Donald Trump pulled back the curtain on the Portman campaign on Fox News, saying:

“…We’re getting along great with Rob Portman, who’s also doing well. We’re working together. We’ve endorsed each other. We have a great relationship.”
