CNN host Brooke Baldwin on Tuesday reminded her viewers of some of the disparaging names President Donald Trump has called women over the years — such as “horseface,” his most recent misogynistic insult against adult film star Stormy Daniels.
Baldwin kicked off a discussion about Trump’s attack on Daniels by explaining the context for Tuesday’s slur on Daniels.
“CNN reports one White House official isn’t sure if he’s trying to distract from the Saudi Arabia coverage, but the official says, hey, it’s something he’s good at doing,” Baldwin pointed out, referring to the suspected murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. “Translation, why yes, this appears to be a calculated move to get us talking about something else. But the truth is, the pressure is mounting, a journalist is feared murdered and this president still faces a decision on how to respond as questions grow over his own ties to the Saudis.”
“That is the reality. Now the misogyny,” she continued. “This comes at a time when he defends mocking a woman who spoke her truth, told her story of surviving sexual assault, chalking it up to mocking her doesn’t matter, ‘I won, I got Justice Kavanaugh,’ and now publicly criticizing a woman’s looks.”
Baldwin added: “No matter how often this happens, it should never be normal. This president has called women fat pigs, dogs, slops, disgusting, ugly, dumb, dumbest, dumb as a rock, unhinged, low life, Pocahontas. And now Trump calls Stormy Daniels a horseface.”
“You forgot the low IQ, which is the phrase he used in describing Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D-CA),” CNN legal analyst Areva Martin pointed out.
