We have been watching Kellyanne Conway for years now. Sarah H. Sanders holds many a press conference only to frequently report she does not know the president’s position on “this issue.”
Trump’s latest ‘go to’ gal is Kirstjen Nielsen, who is running into too far more flack, and at an accelerated clip, than Trump himself has been subjected to from his critics.
Trump purportedly believes in the strong man stance. Bully, intimidate, threaten, hush or pay off your enemies. So why is he putting so many women on the frontlines of his war on whatever it is historians will eventually agree upon he is working so hard to defeat?
Many people cannot figure out what Trump’s position is upon many issues because he changes his mind, his mood, and his message with the latest media feedback. One may suspect he gets his views in some twilight zone, spacetime warped, fox and friends feedback future. But unlike a broken clock, Trump is seldom consistent even twice in one day.
Observers and insiders report that he is consistent in two things, his appeal as a non-politician and to the basest appetites of his base. Those raw meat-feeders also seem consistent with two things, not caring about people of color and not caring about women.
A self-reported, non-feminist, (that is someone who does not believe that men and women should have equal rights and opportunities), Trump is almost comprehensible as a misogynist. But he claims non-membership to that slippery group known as racists. This begs the question, should a woman of color, in Trump world, feel less human, or less human?
It is often reported that we are seeing the birthing pains of a new world wherein the privileged few will be gone with the wind. The wind that the sixties social revolutions surfed in, you know, the one the answer was blown in, according to a former Bob Dylan, before he became a calmer, conservative, Christian Bob Dylan. Maybe that is the case. Things seem to be rather chaotic and the next blow hard hurricane season promises even worse to come before it gets better.
The POTUS is a pampered and protected man of tremendous insecurity. If he doesn’t get exactly what he buys whether it be elections, gerrymandered districts, inauguration crowd size, or media and audience adoration, he assigns scapegoats. When that doesn’t always work, it’s time to send in the security guards in red shirts, or in this case, nice skirts.
It seems rather obvious that a man who divided his own family, breaks his own family vows, grabs those less entitled by the — let’s say immigrant bride catalog, or shark week — will not hesitate to rip babies from their mother’s breast. In his world he deserves everything that he takes.
It is up to everyone else, if a consensus of outrage is finally reached, that he gets what he deserves.
