It's okay to talk to yourself. It's okay to answer yourself. But look out if you say, "I think you both are wrong."

You're painting your point of view over what was actually said.

They know, they just pretend he meant something else because, well, he is the Messiah.

Manitou's translation of the above, with apologies to the proper primates-

"OOOH OOOH OOOH EEEH EEEH EEEH AAAH AAAH AAAH!"

This whole thread is nothing but sillly.

You don't have to read or post in it.

I'm not making excuses for anything. You are ASSUMING he was saying one thing, when he said another, and then getting your panties in a knot over it.

If you are going to continue down this path, please provide evidence that he actually said 'sexual favors'.

Same thing I posted to Salty - prove that he actually said 'sexual favors', or cut the crap.

He is not a Messiah, that is a delusion only you seem to have.

People who understand language; people who have 2 cents of a brain know what an innuendo is. Trump's words may be cruel or weird, we have learned, but they are not thoughtless. He's 73 years old and knows how a statement will be taken. Plus it's a clear tactic from "minimize a female adversary 101" which was used in the 60s and maybe 70s and still is in use in male dominated abusive households.
Words do matter.
I am not a butterfly when it comes to hurt feelings by offhand remarks.
If this was not intended the way it was received, Trump would have said so in an apology for the faux pas.

Then you have a stereotype/sexism issue. Perhaps professional help can get you through it.

It's people who think like this that perpetuate sexism, then paint it on others. A career woman thinks along the same paths as a career man.... doing whatever is necessary to get the job done.

And you automatically think of sex. It says more about you then the person who said it.
