USA Editorial

Quote:
With his latest tweet, clearly implying that a United States senator would trade sexual favors for campaign cash, President Trump has shown he is not fit for office. Rock bottom is no impediment for a president who can always find room for a new low.


Quote:
Lightweight Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, a total flunky for Chuck Schumer and someone who would come to my office “begging” for campaign contributions not so long ago (and would do anything for them), is now in the ring fighting against Trump. Very disloyal to Bill & Crooked-USED!____@realDonaldTrump Dec 12

Quote:
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday dismissed the president's smear as a misunderstanding because he used similar language about men. Of course, words used about men and women are different. When candidate Trump said a journalist was bleeding from her "wherever," he didn't mean her nose.
Quote:
And as is the case with all of Trump's digital provocations, the president's words were deliberate. He pours the gasoline of sexist language and lights the match gleefully knowing how it will burst into flame in a country reeling from the #MeToo moment.
Quote:
A president who would all but call Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand a whore is not fit to clean the toilets in the Barack Obama Presidential Library or to shine the shoes of George W. Bush.
Quote:
This isn’t about the policy differences we have with all presidents or our disappointment in some of their decisions. Obama and Bush both failed in many ways. They broke promises and told untruths, but the basic decency of each man was never in doubt.
Quote:
Donald Trump, the man, on the other hand, is uniquely awful. His sickening behavior is corrosive to the enterprise of a shared governance based on common values and the consent of the governed.
Quote:
It should surprise no one how low he went with Gillibrand. When accused during the campaign of sexually harassing or molesting women in the past, Trump’s response was to belittle the looks of his accusers. Last October, Trump suggested that he never would have groped Jessica Leeds on an airplane decades ago: “Believe me, she would not be my first choice, that I can tell you.” Trump mocked another accuser, former People reporter Natasha Stoynoff, “Check out her Facebook, you’ll understand.” Other celebrities and politicians have denied accusations, but none has stooped as low as suggesting that their accusers weren’t attractive enough to be honored with their gropes.
Quote:
If recent history is any guide, the unique awfulness of the Trump era in U.S. politics is only going to get worse. Trump’s utter lack of morality, ethics and simple humanity has been underscored during his 11 months in office. Let us count the ways:
Quote:
He is enthusiastically supporting Alabama's Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who has been accused of pursuing — and in one case molesting and in another assaulting — teenagers as young as 14 when Moore was a county prosecutor in his 30s. On Tuesday, Trump summed up his willingness to support a man accused of criminal conduct: “Roy Moore will always vote with us.”
Quote:
Trump apparently is going for some sort of record for lying while in office. As of mid-November, he had made 1,628 misleading or false statements in 298 days in office. That’s 5.5 false claims per day, according to a count kept by The Washington Post’s fact-checkers.
Quote:
Trump takes advantage of any occasion — even Monday’s failed terrorist attack in New York — to stir racial, religious or ethnic strife. Congress “must end chain migration,” he said Monday, because the terror suspect “entered our country through extended-family chain migration, which is incompatible with national security.” So because one man — 27-year-old Akayed Ullah, a lawful permanent resident of the U.S. who came from Bangladesh on a family immigrant visa in 2011 — is accused of attacking America, all immigrants brought to this country by family are suspect? Trump might have some credibility if his criticism of immigrants was solely about terrorists. It isn’t. It makes no difference to him if an immigrant is a terrorist or a federal judge. He once smeared an Indiana-born judge whose parents emigrated from Mexico. It’s all the same to this president.
Quote:
A man who clearly wants to put his stamp on the government, Trump hasn’t even done his job when it comes to filling key government positions that require Senate confirmation. As of last week, Trump had failed to nominate anyone for 60% of 1,200 key positions he can fill to keep the government running smoothly.
Quote:
Trump has shown contempt for ethical strictures that have bound every president in recent memory. He has refused to release his tax returns, with the absurd excuse that it’s because he is under audit. He has refused to put his multibillion dollar business interests in a blind trust and peddles the fiction that putting them in the hands of his sons does the same thing.
Quote:
Not to mention calling white supremacists "very fine people," pardoning a lawless sheriff, firing a respected FBI director, and pushing the Justice Department to investigate his political foes.
Quote:
It is a shock that only six Democratic senators are calling for our unstable president to resign.
Quote:
The nation doesn’t seek nor expect perfect presidents, and some have certainly been deeply flawed. But a president who shows such disrespect for the truth, for ethics, for the basic duties of the job and for decency toward others fails at the very essence of what has always made America great.

Absolute bullsh*t...

Trump said Gillibrand would do anything for campaign cash...

The ONLY people who would think that meant "sexual favors" are actual sexists (such as the author of this sad piece)...

If Trump said Chuck Schumer or John McCain would do anything for campaign cash, the same sexists would NOT think that Trump meant sexual favors...

Why?...Because they're not women...

They're using the absurd logic that if a man says another man would do "anything" sex isn't implied, but if a man says a woman would do "anything" sex IS implied...

It's a blatant double-standard from the same group begging for everyone to believe them when they say everyone should be treated the same......

Just a few weeks ago Senator Gilibrand was a stalwart defender of Bill Clinton campaigning to send him back to the White House as Hillary's co President. But now she is the chaste virtue signifier for all women shamelessly attacking the President with the new smear. Just as Democrats have ignored their history of support for slavery and segregation to call others racist, they now ignore their own history of sexual misconduct to insist political adversaries must be viewed through the lens of their sexist identity politics.

"Anything" when referring to a woman is an express statement that she will commit "sexual favors" for the money.

That's what prostitutes in Nevada will do. They will do (virtually) "anything for money" and that's exactly what Trump, a misogynist that bragged about being a sexual predator on the Access Hollywood tapes (and that's been confirmed by over a dozen of his victims), meant in his tweet.

Trump was literally calling Gillibrand a whore that will sell her body for campaign cash.

Based upon the corruption, brutality, inhumanity, immorality, dishonesty, and incompetence of the Trump administration the White House is the dirtiest house in America and there's no known cleanser that with remove the stains of the Trump Administration.

Bill Clinton was not running for president.

We don't have co-Presidents in the United States (except in the delusional world of Trump Supporters)

Here's what Senator Gillibrand actually said:

Quote:
Kirsten Gillibrand: Bill Clinton should have resigned
Kirsten Gillibrand: Bill Clinton should have resigned - BBC News

Donald Trump bragged about being a sexual predator and committing felony acts of sexual assault on the Access Hollywood tapes. Over a dozen of his victims have come forward to confirm that his claims about being a sexual predator were 100% accurate.

Bill Clinton should have resigned because of his established sexual malfeasance.

Donald Trump should resign because of his established sexual malfeasance.

BTW - As revealed in yesterday's House Judiciary Committee hearings the FBI is responsible for investigating creditable allegations of criminal behavior by elected members of the federal government. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was asked if/when the FBI start an investigation of Donald Trump because the allegations of sexual assault by over a dozen women, along with his bragging about it, establish the legal grounds for an FBI criminal investigation.

YES - The FBI should initiate an investigation of Donald Trump's sexual assaults against numerous women because sexual assault is a felony.

It is a shame to see the dishonest tactic of editing my comment.

When Bill was President Hillary bragged that the American people were getting 2 for 1, co Presidents. There is no reason to believe Bill wouldn't adopt the role of co President if Hillary had won.

Kirsten Gilibrand defended Bill Clinton when he was an embattled President. She campaigned with him on Hillary's behalf. Now that she sees a political advantage to turning on her ally and mentor she turns on them. This kind of partisan hypocrisy is par for the course for Democrats, as Bill Clinton said in excusing Robert Byrd's KKK membership, it's all about saying whatever you need to get elected.

I did not watch every moment of assistant AG Rosenstein's testimony yesterday but I did see him respond to multiple Democrat requests to prosecute Trump over allegations of sexual misconduct with an invitation to file a notice with the DOJ. He assured them the notices would be evaluated and if found with merit would be investigated. Please present evidence supporting your claim Rosenstein promised to investigate.

Someone saying that someone "would do anything" is a VERY common phrase...There is no reason to believe Trump meant anything specific...

...and to say otherwise is nothing more than claiming guilt until proven innocent...

Quote:
(someone) will say anything to (do something)
When someone really wants to do something, they will try hard to convince other people to let them do or not do that thing. They might even be willing to lie or cheat. To describe this, we say that that person will "say anything" to accomplish their goal.

For example, say this about someone who really doesn't want to wash the dishes:

She'll say anything to get out of washing the dishes.

Someone who's truly addicted will say anything to get their fix.

You can also talk about people who will "do anything":

I wouldn't trust him. He's the kind of guy who will do anything to get ahead.
