Trump Jr. excuses his dad’s misogyny: ‘He’s allowed to have a personality’
Donald Trump Jr. doesn’t want ladies to worry their pretty little heads about the degrading talk they heard coming out of his father on Howard Stern’s Show, according to BuzzFeed.
“People talk, ‘oh your father’s a misogynist look what he said about women,’ like, on Howard Stern. When he gets with Howard Stern, who’s a friend of his, he’ll joke around because it’s a comedy show,” Trump Jr. said on Kilmeade and Friends. “He’s allowed to have a personality. He will.”
But Trump wasn’t talking to Stern when he was on Fox News saying that Megyn Kelly had “blood coming out of her whatever.” He wasn’t on the radio when he was confronted for a sexist remark by a former staffer.
Barbara Res was the woman that was hired back in 1982 and confirms that Trump gave her an excellent opportunity. She also confirmed, however, in an op-ed for the New York Daily News that Trump denigrated women in front of her.
“He leered at attractive female employees,” she wrote. “Yet I would call him more of a womanizer than a sexist, sort of like Bill Clinton. Trump says he loves women and I suspect he does, in his own way. But his public denigration of women and his association with objectifying activities like Playboy and pageants have the overall effect of blunting any assertion that he is not sexist, regardless of how many women Trump has hired.”
Some conservative women turn a blind eye to the sexism anyway.
