Abuse of Women The Trump Adminstration

Sarah Sanders Has A Conniption Fit When Asked Why Trump Won’t Condemn Domestic Violence (VIDEO)

No matter how they try to change the subject, the White House cannot manage to talk away the fact that the administration had two alleged wife-beaters on the public dime. And until they confront the issue head-on (don’t hold your breath waiting for that), the daily press briefing will be exactly like Monday’s.

A reporter asked Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders why the president still hadn’t condemned domestic violence in all forms. Sanders replied:

“I spoke with the president and those are actually his words that he gave me directly today, It’s my job to speak on behalf of the president. I spoke to him and he gave that message directly to me and I read it directly to you.”


When another reporter noted that Vice President Mike Pence had called domestic assault appalling but Trump still hadn’t done so, Sanders had this to say:

“The president has been clear multiple times through myself and others in the administration that we condemn domestic violence.”

However, Trump himself has not actually said the words, and considering that he’s been accused on at least a dozen occasions of being a sexual assaulter, it does make you wonder why he cannot just read a statement and be done with it, no matter how hypocritical it would be.

A reporter then asked:

“Why do you have to say it? Why can’t he say it?

“He said that he wishes Porter well and people should have due process. But he hasn’t addressed the victims of domestic violence.”

That led Sanders to rely on the well-known “alternative facts” that this administration is famous for:

Everyone who believes Donald Trump dictated a statement to Sanders on the subject of domestic violence, please stand on your head and recite the Magna Carta from memory. At least that would be entertaining.

Abuse of Women WTF?!

WATCH Chris Cuomo School A GOP Rep. Who Calls Domestic Abuse A ‘Soap Opera’

Clearly, Republicans just don’t get it when it comes to the topic of domestic abuse.

First we had the White House only hesitantly agreeing to fire former staff secretary Rob Porter for physically assaulting his ex-wife. Then, over the weekend, Trump took to Twitter and posted this steaming pile of horseshit:

It really shouldn’t surprise us that Trump would defend assholes who beat their wives when you consider that he’s been accused of sexual assault by 13 different women over the years.

Monday morning, GOP Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama managed to compound the situation when CNN host Chris Cuomo asked about how the White House had handled the Porter situation. Brooks replied:

“All too often there’s a rush to judgment. I’m a graduate of Duke University. I remember very well that Duke lacrosse team.”

Cuomo told Brooks:

“I don’t understand the parallels to the current situation. If somebody comes to you, Mo, and says, ‘This woman got a black eye. There is an order of protection,  and there is another woman who echoes the same kind of sentiments about this situation,’ that’s not nothing.

“I’m not talking about someone just coming forward and saying, ‘I don’t like the way Mo Brooks is treating me at the office,’ and has nothing else to support it. This was real. And it was ignored to support somebody that the White House liked.”


Clearly caught off-guard by the perfect logic of what Cuomo had just said, Brooks finally managed to blurt out:

“Chris, to me, this is sort of soap opera news, I’m not in a position—”

Cuomo cut in to ask:

“Domestic violence is ‘soap opera news’?”

Brooks then compounded what he’d already said with a very Trumpian reply:

“I haven’t looked at the evidence. I haven’t talked to a single witness that has personal knowledge. And I really much prefer, if I’m going to be on your show, to talk about public policy. When you talk about personal matters or what’s going on behind closed doors in a marital relationship, that I know nothing about, I’m just not comfortable commenting on that.”

The GOP has become the party of excuses for the most reprehensible behavior imaginable.

Idiot Trump: Babies Are Born In The Ninth Month – ‘It Has To Change’ (VIDEO)

Donald Trump wants you to know that he’s a “stable genius.” Why is that whenever I think of that phrase, I picture a horse counting to three on his hooves?

Just this week, Trump had a military doctor appear before the press and declare him to be physically and mentally fit to run the most powerful country in the world. Problem was, the doctor was sweating and stammering the entire time. It made you wonder if perhaps Trump didn’t have the poor guy’s family locked in a dungeon until he went out and read the script he’d been handed.

On Friday, Trump spoke on the National Mall as part of the annual March for Life, a group of anti-choice extremists who think women shouldn’t be allowed to do as they wish with their bodies or make their own reproductive choices. During his remarks, Trump told the crowd:

“Right now in a number of states, the laws allow a baby to be born from his or her mother’s womb in the ninth month. It is wrong. It has to change.”

WTF did he say? Aren’t babies supposed to be born at nine months?


What Trump was probably trying to say is that in some states, a baby can be aborted at nine months. But that’s yet another of the president’s “alternative facts.”

Dr. Aaron B. Caughey, chairman of obstetrics and gynecology at Oregon Health and Science University, had this to say about the absurd claim that abortion can be performed at nine months:

“That is not happening in the United States. It is, of course, such an absurd thing to say.”

So ladies, not only does Donald Trump want to make sure you don’t have the right to make your own choices, he’s also sick and tired of you carrying babies to full term. Don’t you know we have to try and stay ahead of the world in everything? From now on, in order to truly make America great again, all pregnancies will be no longer than six months. Let’s see the Chinese beat us on that one!

West Virginia GOP Lawmaker: Childbirth Resulting From Rape Is ‘Beautiful’

Will Republicans ever learn? Today we have yet another narrow-minded GOP moron who has decided to comment on the issue of rape, and like so many before him, his comments have landed him in hot water.

Brian Kurcaba, who is a GOP Delegate to the West Virginia state legislature, was speaking during a hearing on a proposed 20-week abortion ban. Democrats had suggested adding an exception to the 20-week ban for rape victims. Which prompted Kurcaba to let loose with this statement of unadulterated ignorance:

“Obviously rape is awful. What is beautiful is the child that could come from this.”

Kurcaba now joins the distinguished company of Republican mental midgets such as Richard Mourdock, a candidate for the U.S. Senate from Indiana, who in 2012 said:

“I think that even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”

And of course we have the infamous Todd Akin of Missouri, who, during a Senate campaign, showed his complete lack of understanding of human biology by commenting:

“If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something: I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be of the rapist, and not attacking the child.”

So now we can plainly see that the GOP not only wants to prevent women from exercising the right to decide their reproductive futures, they also believe that a woman who suffers the horrific crime of rape should be forced to bear the child which is a product of that crime.

Perhaps in the future, Republicans should follow the maxim that it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

Idaho Republican Says ‘Trauma’ Prevents Pregnancy If Woman Is Raped

Why is it that so many members of the Republican Party seem to think that rape is no big deal when it happens to a woman? Is it because they truly are that freaking ignorant, or might it be a case of willful ignorance?

The latest GOP member to open his mouth and step on his dick is named Pete Nielsen, and he just so happens to be a state Representative in Idaho, though I’m pretty sure this asshat is a whole lot dumber than an Idaho potato.

On Thursday, during a legislative hearing on whether or not abortion providers should be required to provide a list of facilities to patients making them aware of clinics that offer free ultrasounds, Nielsen really showed himself. There is no exception for rape or incest in the ultrasound bill, but that’s no big deal, Nielsen maintained:

“Now, I’m of the understanding that in many cases of rape it does not involve any pregnancy because of the trauma of the incident. That may be true with incest a little bit.”

You are of the understanding? No, you actually understand nothing, you incredibly ignorant and disgusting fartcloud of rancid intestinal gas!


When advocates for women’s health attempted to set Nielsen straight on just how wrong he was, he refused to back down, commenting:

“That’s information that I’ve had through the years. Whether it’s totally accurate or not, I don’t know. In a rape situation, there’s a lot of trauma.”

Nielsen even tried to pass himself off as an expert on the topic, because:

“I read a lot of information. I have read it several times,. Being a father of five girls, I’ve explored this a lot.”

So this monumental douche-nozzle of a human being is the father of five daughters? Well, they must be so proud of their daddy, huh?
