Again, let me start by saying that I have not yet been convinced to jump onboard the ‘Trump Train’, however, but I must admit that am moving slowly toward the door of the train station that would make it possible. And yes, I’m fully aware of Mr. Trump’s past transgressions, how could I not be, since those who profess themselves to be the guardians of conservativism have been nearly relentless in their effort to convince me that above all else I need to turn around before ever getting to the platform where I could, if so inclined, jump onboard the ‘T-Train’. I am told that I must resist such temptation at all costs.
And also the purpose of what I am about to say here is not, in any way, some attempt, covert or otherwise, on my part to come rushing to the defense of ‘The Donald’ because, as we have seen on any number of previous occasions, he has demonstrated that he is more than capable of defending himself. Trump’s most recent ‘controversy’, as you have most likely heard about by now, has to do with the fact that he dared to declare that Hitlery has but one card to play in her political deck, and that would be, of course, the "woman card." And she has shown little reluctance in playing it over and over and over again.
So it was then that after racking up victories in five primaries just this past Tuesday, Trump addressed a crowd of gleeful supporters and did what he does best and that was to unapologetically mock the living daylights out of Hitlery. Trump said to his supporters, "Frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don't think she'd get 5 percent of the vote. The only thing she's got going is the women's card." He went on to say, "And the beautiful thing is, women don't like her." And for the life of me I have to figure out why is it that any self-respecting woman would ever choose to vote for someone like Hitlery? And yet…they do.
And it was then, early on Wednesday morning, that ‘Team Hitlery’ issued what I’m sure was something they thought was a rather pithy retort to Trump’s claim, releasing footage online of Hitlery embracing the "woman card" describing it as a fight for equal rights. Hitlery said, "Mr. Trump accused me of playing the 'woman card.' Well if fighting for women's health care and paid family leave and equal pay is playing the 'woman card,' then deal me in.'" So says the ‘woman’ who did her very best to slander, in every way imaginable, those women who fell prey to her rapist husband. The ‘woman card’ in this case may be nothing but a Joker.
And true to form, Trump has not chosen to back down from his recent statements. It was during a recent appearance on ‘Good Morning America’ that Trump was asked if he understood why some might find his statement sexist, and he made it quite clear that he had no apologies. He simply said, "It's not sexist. It's true. It's just a very, very true statement. If she were a man, she'd get 5 percent. She's a bad candidate. She's a flawed candidate." And he then went on to say, "She's not going to do very well in the election, and I look forward to showing that." So while you could argue he was rather blunt, nothing he said was actually incorrect.
So I guess my question to all those who seem to now have their panties in a bunch would be, where exactly is it that Trump was wrong in saying what he said? He’s quite right when he said that Hitlery is playing the "woman card", and the fact is if she was a man she would have been long gone by now, having been easily dispatched by ‘Socialist Bernie.’ She gets a huge pass, from both women and the media, just for being a female, much like Barry got a huge pass for simply being (half) black. With Hitlery it’s more about her BEING a woman than it is about her being FOR women, which, of course, she most certainly is not!
Hillary plays the "woman card" precisely for the reason that Trump said she does, because it makes her appear as being the "victim" of the evil white male. She wants to be the most powerful leader in the world, yet she hides behind the veil of victimization when it's advantageous to her. "I am woman, hear me whine! I just poormouth all the time" is her song. Like I said, if Hitlery was a guy would she have long ago been vanquished by her competition even if that competition was no one other than Bernie because she’s just that bad of a candidate. But because she’s a woman, she’s allowed to hang around and even be the ‘frontrunner’.
And you know, despite all of the idiotic claims being made by Democrats in general, and Hitlery specifically, the fact is that women do get paid the same as men for doing the same job. Unless of course they happen to work for Hitlery’s campaign or even in Barry’s White House. However what Hitlery, and Bernie for that matter, conveniently leave out of the entire conversation on this particular issue is that women generally tend to choose lower paying jobs or part time employment and take longer time out of their careers for such things as having children. Or when they do go into high paying jobs they tend to work fewer hours than men.
Women also don't tend to go into those more dangerous, dirty, and labor intensive well-paying areas of employment. So there’s your wage gap. Essentially, the bottom line here is that if you want to earn more than men then you’re just going to have man up a bit. But nope, it’s just so much easier to sit around and whine about it. That way, like all those mooches seeking a higher minimum wage, you can increase the odds of making more money without really having to work any harder or work more hours. It’s the progressive way of doing things, more pay for less actual work. So it’s all about nothing.
If anything, Hitlery takes identity politics to, what can safely be said, a whole new level. The “woman card” is just a way for her to attempt to distract attention away from the numerous failures of her less than illustrious career. After all, for all her years in ‘public service’ she has very little of substance to show for any of it. And being a woman does not erase all of the scandals or having behaved like nothing more than a common crook. It’s sad that elections are so often won because the candidates know that many voters just refuse to see beyond race or gender not beyond to “the content of one's character.”
Lastly, and as kind of a side note, does anyone truly think that someone as unqualified as Barry “Almighty” would have ever been elected, let alone re-elected, if he had been a white guy? And quite frankly, the ONLY thing that has prevented him for joining the ranks of Andrew Johnson and ‘Slick Willie’ Clinton, the other two impeached Democrat presidents, is the fact that he’s black. I mean, how dare anyone even consider the possibility of impeaching the first black president whether or not he actually deserves to be? So he’s been permitted to get away with some of the most egregious behavior ever to be committed by a U.S. president.
