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.
I will be overturning this ridiculous order immediately! https://t.co/sFIX5Y667v

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.
