Abraham Lincoln said, “No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar.” That certainly applies to Trump. He either doesn’t remember calling Meghan Markle nasty or he’s lying about it and expects us to believe his reality du jour. Unfortunately, this story is hitting the press this week, as Trump gathers his spawn and their spouses for an official state visit to the UK. Great preamble to what is already set up to be a ludicrous, if not outright disastrous, episode in diplomatic relations between the UK and the United States.

Now here is where you are going to gasp at the stupidity of Trump’s people. His own campaign, Official Trump War Room, tweeted this out, and apparently they’re all deaf — or somebody was supposed to doctor the tape and didn’t.
Fake News CNN is at it again, falsely claiming President Trump called Meghan Markle "nasty." Here is what he actually said. Listen for yourself! pic.twitter.com/kLuPXBLMhf

The quote is, “I didn’t know that she was nasty.” That’s plain English, the Queen’s English, as a matter of fact.
And the self-righteous “listen for yourself!” Yeah, we did, dummies, and that’s what our ears gave our brains, the word nasty.
Now, here’s an epiphany that I had when listening to this: Trump once again uses the word “nasty,” which is his descriptor for women who intimidate him. The epiphany is that, in Trump’s world, women are not supposed to have opinions. Women are not supposed to have minds, or be capable of original thought. Trump’s view of women who can reason and express an opinion is that they are “nasty.” Not that they might be right, or have just cause for feeling the way they do — that doesn’t exist for Trump. Women are not supposed to function in the world beyond being trophies, accoutrements, or servants to men. Any deviation from that makes a woman “nasty” per se.
Just a random thought, from the Twilight Zone. And if you tell me I’m stating the obvious, I won’t be offended. I just never knew it was that bad, but then look at who we’re talking about. Revelations of how bad it really is are an everyday occurrence. This was my revelation for the day. I knew Trump feared brilliant women, but now I realize he fears us all.
