I can’t imagine that this level of blatant misogyny is going to do Donald Trump any good, and particularly with women. The Navy SEALS approved a change to their mission statement describing their elite corps. Rather than “a common man with an uncommon desire to succeed” the language has been changed to “common citizens” etc. Lou Dobbs was horrified and then Trump jumped right in on the bandwagon.

This is somewhat surprising the month before an election. Usually people are attempting to avoid controversy and not rock the boat. Maybe this is being perceived on that level, as shoring up right-wing support. At least that would explain Trump’s ludicrous reaction.

What’s ridiculous about women serving in the military?

Apparently Trump is committed to his 2016 playbook, despite all evidence that that stopped working some time ago. His much vaunted base has not expanded, it has contracted.

This is just a log on Trump’s own funeral pyre, but fine. Let the flames leap high. Get the weenies and the marshmallows.

Donald Trump envisions a 1950s America where “n-words” “knew their place” and women were Donna Reed or June Cleaver doing housework and cooking wearing pearls and a “Sunday Best” (church) dress. Oh, and high heels. I really wish someone would make an ad saying “When Donald Trump talks about the suburbs he means this” with some footage of Mrs. Cleaver or Mrs. Reed in black & white – but what he really means is this: A couple of settings, one in a nice Cleaver style home and one in a more modest and a little shabby home on split screen… Read more »

Army Rangers have had women complete the training and earn the title so why the big hair on fire reaction here???

These types just revel in their ignorance.

I guess for the genius the “cat’s out of the bag.” Everyone already knows he’s a bigot, a sexist, a despot wannabee, tax cheat and finally, the tax, the proof that he is a horrible deal maker businessman and possibility that he’s not even a billionaire. This is Trump who has nothing more to hide. From that utter disgraceful performance in the debate, to the call to the white supremacists, “stand down, standby” to this latest debacle, he is letting it all hang out. It’s over, we know it, he knows it. Let us VOTE. Let us end this charade.… Read more »

He’s still stuck in the 50s. Women are supposed to be decorations in public, and servants in private…at least in his world.
(One of our neighbors, the husband did the sewing as recreation, and in another one the wife would mow the lawn part of the time.)

Yeah, go right ahead. Biden will undo that one in two seconds. BTW, shouldn’t you be worrying more about everything else, including Hope Hicks possibly giving you COVID 19?

Not ignorance – misogyny.

My wife was laughed out of the local post office back in 1975 when she asked about a job. They told her women would never work at the PO. They had their first women four months later. The year before she quit a job working for the general contractor building the Super Dome because he said she had to sleep with him if she wanted to keep her job. Women today with all the problems they still have have it better than when I was young. I thought Seals were a bunch of sadistic bastards, but a woman that goes… Read more »

I’ve actually interacted with more than a few of them, starting back when I was on active duty in the 1980s. Like any group of people some are assholes, some are great people and the bulk are in the middle with both good and not so good personal qualities. I was actually startled at how humble a few of them were, at least back then. Same with my fellow Marines who were in Recon. I’ve found the same to be true of pro athletes I’ve met, as well as politicians up to and including Senators. People who become part of… Read more »

There were women postmasters long before 1975. They should have checked their own history.

Given his abusive well documented history with women, i can’t fathom why they haven’t stormed Mara Lego, & dragged him out for some good old fashioned tar & feathering. I can always hope. oops.
