What’s it like being a woman who works for Donald Trump? Probably not a lot of fun, if his recent comments on The New York Times’ big expose on his treatment of women are any indication.

One of the women profiled in the piece was Barbara Res, who was Trump’s head of construction in the 1980s. In the piece, Res says Trump would frequently talk about other women’s bodies during routine business meetings and he even knocked Res for being overweight on one occasion. A normal person might have reflected on this behavior and concluded that it was inappropriate for the workplace. A normal person might even apologize for such behavior.

But Donald Trump, it seems, is not a normal person.

On his Twitter feed on Monday, Trump ripped into Res for not being grateful for all the things that he’s done for her:

This is highly revealing of Trump’s mentality: Namely, that any woman he hires should be grateful for his employment and that this gives him the power to say whatever he wants to them.

Trump followed this up with a tweet slamming Res for allegedly begging for her old job back once she left the company:

For the record, 15 of the 18 tweets that Trump sent out on Monday were angry responses to the Times’ big piece detailing his past relationships with women. It goes without saying that the piece seems to have gotten under his skin.

According to Miller, Republicans are disseminating a narrative that says coronavirus restriction should be met with a sort of "organized resistance" from individuals and businesses that feel unfairly oppressed. While everyone wants to be with their families on Thanksgiving, "one thing that most people have learned by the time they are adults is that they don’t get to do whatever they want whenever they want."

‘Fox & Friends’ graphic destroys Trump for ‘baselessly’ and ‘falsely’ claiming election was rigged

Published

Viewers of Fox & Friends were treated to a dose of the truth on Thursday when the show admitted that President Donald Trump has "baselessly" and "falsely" claimed that the 2020 election was rigged.

The message to Fox News viewers appeared on the network's ticker graphic that is displayed at the bottom of the screen.

"President Trump phoned into a meeting organized by Republicans in Pennsylvania Wed., baseless claiming that the election was 'rigged' and falsely claiming that he won it 'by a lot,'" the Fox News ticker reported. "Most of Trump's legal efforts to challenge voting procedures in PA, MI and other states have been thrown out and his campaign has not produced sufficient evidence to back up claims of widespread voter fraud."
