Michael Moore slams GOP hypocrisy on women’s rights: You’ve been grabbing them by the p*ssy for years

Published

In a Monday morning op-ed, Michael Moore is calling out Republican leaders who are jumping from the sinking ship that is the 2016 campaign for Donald Trump. According to Moore, the groping ways of Trump aren’t new to the GOP and the hypocrisy is astounding.

“Trump may have verbalized his misogyny, sexism and abuse of women into an open microphone, but over the past decades you ― YOU ― have LEGALIZED it,” Moore wrote for AlterNet.

While Trump is talking about grabbing “women by their p*ssy,” it’s the GOP that has been working to legislate women’s bodies since the Supreme Court ruled on Roe v. Wade. Moore says that it is akin to legislators trying to legalize grabbing control over women. At the same time, they’ve worked to ensure women aren’t paid the same as men, don’t have paid family leave and can’t get access to birth control.

“Trump has been called ‘disgusting’ for his remarks,” Moore continued. “But you, by actually blocking women’s equal rights, you’ve been rewarded for your misogyny with re-election, campaign cash and future lobbying jobs. You think by disowning Trump now that we, the people, are going be grateful to you. But we know that Trump is only the natural result of a Republican culture that has viciously fought the women’s agenda for years.”

Moore goes on to say that Trump has destroyed the Republican party because he is the combination of the right-wing, tea party and religious zealots that the GOP got into bed with to save their party. The source of the disease, however, is not the activists but the politicians.

“It is an assault to pay women less,” Moore said. “It is an assault to block daycare for all. It is an assault ― a form of apartheid ― when only 20 percent of Congress is women, the majority gender.”

But Trump’s VP, Mike Pence, isn’t escaping Moore’s accusations either. Moore cites Pence’s signature evangelical legislation that would have mandated that any women having an abortion have a funeral and bury her fetus. It is people like Pence who have been grabbing women by their genitals for years, according to Moore.

“As far as I’m concerned, there are 54 Trumps in the U.S. Senate and 237 Trumps in the House,” he said, citing the elected members of Trump’s party. “You can’t make this look good by removing your endorsement from Trump. Yes, Trump has to go ― but so do you, all of you.”

Moore makes a call to action for people to hit the polls this election with the idea in mind:
“YOU’RE EITHER WITH WOMEN, OR YOU’RE AGAINST THEM.”

Anyone who is against should have their career ended.

“Thank you for letting the American public see your true (orange) face,” Moore closes. “I’m glad you ‘grabbed’ our attention and mobIlized the masses against you. The only thing sweeter than seeing the lot of you gone would be a 50-state sweep for Hillary.”

Morning Joe’s Mika: Thousands are dying of COVID-19 because Trump is ‘surrounded by inexperienced suck-ups’

Published

on

MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski got right to the point on Tuesday morning by saying people are getting sick and dying in the U.S. because Donald Trump is surrounded by a collection of "suck-ups" who won't tell him the brutal truth about what is happening in the country.

As part of a "Morning Joe" panel discussion on the failings of the Trump administration to head off of the COVID-19 pandemic that is ravaging the country -- despite ample warnings it was on the way -- Brzezinski, as well as co-host Willie Geist, levied some hard accusations against the president and his team.

MSNBC’s Morning Joe and Mika reveal why Trump likely ignored startlingly accurate COVID-19 memos

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski rebuked President Donald Trump for apparently ignoring startlingly accurate warnings from trade adviser Peter Navarro about the coronavirus pandemic.

Navarro's memos were circulated at the highest levels of government in January and February, but the president downplayed the virus until early March, when statewide lockdowns started wrecking the U.S. economy.

"In one worst-case scenario cited in the memo, Navarro warned that more than half a million Americans could die, and, yet, weeks after that, you had Donald Trump at rallies saying that in April when it warms up, this will miraculously go away," Scarborough said. "Put this in context with, I suppose you could say with 9/11, the memos warning of al-Qaeda attacks using airplanes, maybe missed signals FDR didn't pick up on before Pearl Harbor. I really don't know, though, what parallel there can be, because so many more people are going to die because of these missed signals."

‘One failure after another’: MSNBC’s Morning Joe busts tragic COVID-19 mistakes Trump keeps trying to deny

Published

on

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough lamented the repeated failures and missed opportunities by President Donald Trump as he faced the coronavirus outbreak.

The "Morning Joe" host criticized the president for claiming it was not the federal government's job to test Americans for the virus, and instead shifted responsibility to the states and their governors.

"This is a perfect 'the buck stops here' contrast with Donald Trump, saying, 'I am not responsible,'" Scarborough said. "What we can talk about is ventilators, the national Defense Production Act. We could talk about all the ways that Donald Trump keeps trying to pass the buck, keeps trying to say, 'I'm not responsible.'"
