Trump Campaign Brags About Suppressing Black Voters

In a move sure to excite Donald Trump’s white nationalist supporters, the racist birther’s presidential campaign is instituting a voter suppression operation targeting women and African Americans. The Republican Party has sought to restrict African Americans’ right to vote for years. (Case in point: the recent North Carolina voter ID law that was struck down on the grounds that it sought to target and disenfranchise black voters.)

But now, in tandem with Trump’s work to question the integrity of the democratic process, Trump’s campaign is actually bragging about their voter suppression efforts:

Instead of expanding the electorate, Bannon and his team are trying to shrink it. “We have three major voter suppression operations under way,” says a senior official. They’re aimed at three groups Clinton needs to win overwhelmingly: idealistic white liberals, young women, and African Americans.

Trump Brags About Sexually Assault

Try as he might, Donald Trump can’t gloss over his decades-long record of sexually harassing and assaulting women — especially as he continues to attack the appearance and character of the courageous women who have over the last week publicly alleged Trump practices what he preaches when it comes to sexually assaulting and harassing women.

“Uh, I can’t say that,” Trump said in 1993, when asked if he treats women with respect. A surprising moment of candor from the serial liar that the Republican Party selected as its presidential nominee.

But then again, as America (re)learned two weeks ago, Donald Trump is happy to share his enthusiasm for and history of harassing, demeaning, and abusing women: “[W]hen you’re a star, they let you do it…You can do anything,” Trump bragged in 2005, adding, “Grab them by the p—y.”

Trump is an abusive bully who brags about sexually assaulting women, thinks a working woman […]

Donald Trump Sinks To New Low At Greensboro Rally

It’s been one week since the Washington Post released the shocking, reprehensible tape of Donald Trump bragging about sexual assault. Today, Trump sank even lower into the gutter at his campaign rally in Greensboro, North Carolina.

As women continue to come forward with their stories about how Trump sexually assaulted them, Trump has taken to attacking their physical appearances.

TRUMP: “Believe me, she would not be my first choice…”

TRUMP: “When you looked at that horrible woman last night, you said ‘I don’t think so.’”

Aside from bragging about sexual assault and attacking his victims based on their physical appearances, Trump also again called for his political opponent to be jailed and launched
racist attacks against Carlos Slim.

Trump still doesn’t know why he’s called “a sexist, a racist, a xenophobe”

Donald Trump this afternoon claimed that he’s only being called “a sexist, a racist, a xenophobe, and morally deformed,” because he is challenging “The Establishment and their media enablers,” who are, Trump said, running a coordinated smear campaign against him.

Think we can just go to the tape on this one:

“A SEXIST”

Trump brags about sexually assaulting women.
Trump‘s said he thinks a working wife is a “very dangerous thing.”
Trump‘s warned he “go[es] through the roof,” if he gets home and dinner isn’t ready.
Trump publicly attacked an attorney as “disgusting” for pumping breast milk to feed her child.
Trump said a “pregnancy…is certainly an inconvenience…for a person that is running a business,” even if it’s “a wonderful thing for the woman.”
Trump‘s lamented that “women get it better” than men.
Trump said “maybe [recent mothers] should feel” pressured to return to work quickly after a pregnancy.
Trump‘s insisted that […]

To Trump, Women Are Objects Used For Entertainment and Housework

As far as Donald Trump is concerned women are objects that exist purely to stroke his ego, entertain him, and take care of household chores and children. That has been abundantly clear throughout his entire life, let alone his presidential campaign. The release of the 2005 tape where he clearly speaks about sexually assaulting women confirms what voters have recognized in his rhetoric from the beginning: a man full of deep-seated misogyny and a total lack of respect for women as human beings. Trump has a long history of predatory behavior and this is one more example.

Trump and his campaign are doing their best to gaslight American women and rewrite recorded history, but it isn’t working. This morning, Donald Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani tried to make it seem like the grotesque conversation was a one-time incident. It is abundantly clear that is false. There are extensive reports of Trump sexually […]

Joe Heck, It’s Too Little, Too Late.

Joe Heck’s decision to abandon Donald Trump is way too little, way too late.

This morning Heck acknowledged he had “looked past” the comments of Donald Trump — including Trump’s body shaming of women, attacks a Gold Star family, and suggesting that veterans who suffer from PTSD aren’t mentally strong.  Heck was able to “look past” Trump’s portrayal of Mexicans as rapist and criminals, his call to ban all Muslims from the country, and his nonchalant approach to nuclear proliferation. Heck even stood by Trump as the casual racism and white nationalism of Trump’s campaign personally affected Heck’s family.

The entire time, Heck continued to stand by Trump, acknowledging that he was “completely supporting” Trump and following up with, “Why wouldn’t I?

“Only now that it’s politically convenient is Joe Heck attempting to backtrack his support of Donald Trump. It shouldn’t […]
