Eric Trump suggests women invite sexual harassment — and women invite him to go f*ck himself

Published

In an interview with “CBS This Morning,” the son of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump seemed to think that women allowed sexual harassment to occur.

Eric Trump was responding to a comment his father made in a USA Today piece, in which he said that his daughter Ivanka would either find a different career or job if she was harassed in the workplace.

“I think what he’s saying is, Ivanka is a strong, powerful woman, she wouldn’t allow herself to be objected to it,” the younger Trump said. “And by the way, you should take it up with Human Resources, and I think she would as a strong person, at the same time, I don’t think she would allow herself to be subjected to that. I think that’s a point he was making, and I think he did so well.”

One in three women gets sexually harassed in the workplace, according to a survey last year. That doesn’t even include the recent statistics contributed by Fox News’s sexual harassment scandal.

Out of the one-third who said they experienced sexual harassment at work, only 29 percent reported the incident. One of the reasons women don’t report the incident is out of fear that the problem won’t be resolved, according to the Human Rights Library at the University of Minnesota. Another reason is that they fear that they’ll be blamed for the incident, something often seen among survivors of rape.

Unlike the Trump family, many women don’t have a choice where they can work, particularly in an economy that is still struggling. Similarly, putting the onus on the person wronged to find another job does little to punish the harasser while the harassed is forced to move on searching for a safe work environment.

When asked to explain the comments, Trump spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany got flat out schooled by other CNN panelists.

Perhaps that’s why women and men took to Twitter to slam his comments as hypocritical and naive.

Published

on

President Donald Trump will fight to remain in power regardless of the outcome if the 2020 election is close, a conservative columnist warned on Saturday.

Andrew Sullivan blasted Trump in New York magazine, honing in on the commander-in-chief's lying.

"For Trump, lying is central to his disturbed psyche, and to his success. The brazenness of it unbalances and stupefies sane and adjusted people, thereby constantly giving him an edge and a little breathing space while we try to absorb it, during which he proceeds to the next lie," he wrote.
