On Monday, the Los Angeles Times detailed the juxtaposition of President Donald Trump’s 11th-hour attempts to sway women voters into his camp, with his ongoing condescension and insults towards any women who challenge or disagree with him.
“As the presidential race moves into its final week, polls show Trump is trailing Democrat Joe Biden by double digits with women voters,” reported Chris Megerian and Eli Stokols. “But it hasn’t stopped the president from attacking, insulting and patronizing women he considers political enemies, or even just not supportive enough.”
As examples, said the report, “He insulted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a regular target of his derision, as ‘crazy as a bed bug’ on Monday during nearly four hours of speeches during three rallies in Pennsylvania. He has demanded that Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, a Democrat, show more gratitude because ‘my Justice Department’ stopped an alleged domestic terrorism plot against her. He complains that he is treated unfairly by female journalists, accusing NBC’s Savannah Guthrie of ‘going totally crazy’ when she questioned him in a televised town hall. He walked out of a ’60 Minutes’ interview last week because he said CBS’s Lesley Stahl’s tone was ‘no way to talk.’ And in repeatedly disparaging Harris — even calling her a ‘monster’ — and intentionally mispronouncing her first name, he has suggested that her gender might be as disqualifying as her politics.”
All of this comes as the election appears set to be decided by a historic gender gap.
“Four years ago, women preferred Hillary Clinton by a 12 point margin over Trump, according a Pew Research Center analysis of national exit polls. President Obama had a similar margin among women when he won the 2012 and 2008 elections,” said the report. “Polls suggest Biden could swamp those margins. A survey conducted by NBC News and the Wall Street Journal this month showed the former vice president leading women by 60% to 34%, compared to his overall lead of 53% to 42%.”
Stephen Colbert details ‘petty’ Trump’s 46-minute ‘pants-filling tantrum’ to ‘kamikaze MAGA dead-enders’
"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert walked through President Donald Trump's recent 46-minute Facebook rant in an epic opening monologue Wednesday night.
Thursday will mark one month since the election, and "the president has spent that entire time throwing a loud, pants-filling tantrum," said Colbert. "If we don't change presidents soon, he's going to get a rash."
He explained that the world had been subjected to Trump's "call to arms" for his supporters, seeking to overthrow the election and nullify the will of the people.
‘Book her on Jeanine Pirro’: Witness ridiculed after going viral during Giuliani’s Michigan hearing
Rudy Giuliani's election fraud hearing went off the rails Wednesday evening as one woman monopolized the comments section with a series of rants.
“That poll book is off by 100,000!” claimed the woman. “Why don’t you look at the registered voters on there? … what was the turnout rate, 120 percent?”
Some speculated if the woman was intoxicated while others wondered if she'd been using Gov. Rick Perry's "smart glasses" as a talking stick. One Michigander explained, however, that some people in the state simply talk that way.
Trump witness at Rudy’s Michigan hearing demands photo ID because ‘all Chinese look alike’
President Donald Trump's latest election fraud "hearing" in Michigan brought together a motley crew of witnesses including one woman who went off on a rant about photo ID.
Michigan requests a photo ID but doesn't mandate it to vote. But that isn't enough for one woman who said it's necessary to tell Chinese people apart.
"I think all Chinese look alike, so how would you tell?" she asked.
If the woman at the hearing has a hard time telling the difference between Chinese people, she may also have trouble looking at a photo of a person and telling if they're the same person on the ID. Voter rolls also don't have photos of the voter included in them.
