Enraged Trump Lashes Out At Fiona Hill After She Calls Him A Misogynistic Jerk In New Book

If there’s one thing that’s always been abundantly clear when it comes to failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump, it’s that he’s a sexist pig and rabid misogynist who hates women and thinks they serve no purpose other than sex and procreation.

If you doubt that, consider what the Donald once said regarding women:

“The smart ones act very feminine and needy, but inside they are real killers. The person who came up with the expression ‘the weaker sex’ was either very naïve or had to be kidding. I have seen women manipulate men with just a twitch of their eye — or perhaps another body part.”

You probably remember Fiona Hill from Trump’s first impeachment. She was his top expert on Russia who told congressional investigators that the then-president did indeed try to extort the nation of Ukraine in exchange for military supplies that had already been approved by Congress.

Hill has just released a new book, There Is Nothing For You Here: Finding Opportunity in the 21st Century. in which she carefully lays out the blatant criminal acts committed by Trump during his time in office.

On Thursday, Hill was a guest on CNN, and host Jim Sciutto read a passage from the book regarding how Trump viewed women:

“It was easier for Trump to dismiss women and see them as problems – women who got in the way. They were, after all, the ‘nonplayers in his world’…and like these other ‘nonplayers’, I too found myself in the crosshairs.”

On another occasion, Hill recalls in her book, Trump wanted to know if she would rewrite a press release, not realizing that he was asking that of one of the top diplomats in the administration:

There was an exchange between the president and McMaster that I didn’t catch. Then the president raised his voice: “Well, can she do it? Can she go type it up and bring it back?” She? I thought. What? What just happened? Only then did I realize Trump was talking about me. “She” could only be me. There were three shes in the room, and the she in question was certainly not Ivanka and unlikely to be Margaret Peterlin. Suddenly he was practically yelling — “Hey, darlin’, are you listening? Are you paying attention?”

Apparently, that passage got back to Trump through some of his current aides, and he lashed out at Hill via his spokesperson, who shared the failed ex-president’s whining on Twitter since he’s banned from the platform:

And then, once his “team” had a chance to think up some more cheap shots, we got this:

One wonders if Ms. Harrington was required to take these insults via dictation and then regurgitate them back into the internet ether to mollify her boss.

Whatever the case, once again we see that Donald Trump has learned nothing and is too damn stupid to realize that alienating the largest part of the U.S. electorate is the kiss of death.

Trump Goes On Crude Sexist Rant During Interview With Right-Wing Radio Host

Here’s a simple, irrefutable fact about failed, one-term, twice impeached former President Donald Trump: He’s a rabid misogynist who thinks women serve no purpose other than providing sex and raising children.

Over the years, the disgusting things Trump has said about women have been well documented. Here’s what he said in his 1997 book The Art of the Comeback:

“The smart ones act very feminine and needy, but inside they are real killers. The person who came up with the expression ‘the weaker sex’ was either very naïve or had to be kidding. I have seen women manipulate men with just a twitch of their eye — or perhaps another body part.”

And now Trump is back, and he’s on the attack against women in politics, raging at Vice President Kamala Harris and Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY), among others, telling radio host Hugh Hewitt:

“I think that she’s (Harris) terrible. I think that she, I was surprised when he picked her, because she was done, she had done very poor in the debates, and she had done very poor in the polling. She was heading in the wrong direction, but he picked her. Look, everything this guy does is sort of strange.

“And I just looked a recent poll where she’s down even lower than him, which is pretty hard, because he’s down very low. I also looked at polls where I’m winning by many points, but I was when we had the election. I don’t know. We have people in office that did not win the election, okay? They didn’t win the election.”

Actually, they DID win the election, and they won it in a landslide, unless you choose to believe that the Chinese used “special thermometers” to alter the 2020 vote count.

When Hewitt asked if any of the possible GOP presidential contenders had impressed him enough to warrant an endorsement if he decides not to run in 2024, Trump replied:

“A number, I don’t want to say right now. This isn’t the right time to say. I just picked somebody to run against a person named Liz Cheney, who’s off her rocker. And I’ll be announcing that sometime today.”

Donald Trump hasn’t changed. He’s just as disgusting and hateful as ever. He belongs behind bars. Not only for his financial crimes, but also for taking part in an attempted coup against the U.S. government. And while we’re at it, let’s also make sure he’s held responsible for the dozens of sexual assaults and rapes he’s alleged to have committed over his lifetime. He doesn’t deserve to walk among law-abiding citizens any longer.

WATCH CNN’s Kirsten Powers SHUT DOWN A Former Trump Aide For Calling Kamala Harris ‘Hysterical’

You’ve probably seen Jason Miller, a former campaign aide to President Trump, on cable news shows over the past few months. He’s such a partisan that he’d probably defend the president if he’d been caught stealing teddy bears from babies.

But Miller got his head handed to him on CNN Tuesday night when he accused California Senator Kamala Harris of “hysteria” for the way she questioned Attorney General Jeff Sessions when he testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee earlier in the day. CNN commentator Kirsten Powers challenged Miller, asking:

“How was Sen. Harris hysterical?. I don’t really understand that. I mean, she was asking some tough questions.”

Rather than reply to the question, Miller accused Senator Harris of using her questions of Sessions as a “completely partisan screed.”

Powers refused to relent, again asking Miller:

“But how was that hysterical?”

Miller:

“From my perspective ― my, I would say, objective perspective ― I mean it was … it didn’t seem like there was any effort to try to get to a real question or get to the bottom of it.”

Then Powers used fact to prove what Miller was really trying to say:

“I think she asked a lot of questions, actually. She was very dogged, there’s no question, but I wouldn’t say she was any more dogged than Ron Wyden was, would you? Would you say that?”

To that, Miller replied:

“Look, I have my opinion on that. I think she was hysterical. I don’t think that Senator Wyden was really trying to get to the bottom of answers either.”

That’s when Powers showed that Miller was falling back on a double standard:

“But he wasn’t hysterical and she was. OK, I just wanted to clear that up. Got it.”

Trump acolyte Jeffrey Lord then piped up and said “hysteria is a neutral quality.”

So Kirsten Powers dropped the nuclear bomb of truth to shut down both Miller and Lord, commenting:

“And yet it’s just women that usually are called hysterical.”

Civil Rights Discrimination Islamophobia Racism Sexism

Here’s The Reason You May Start Seeing Safety Pins Everywhere

Let’s be totally honest here: While economic anxiety did indeed play a part in the election of Donald Trump as President, racism, Islamophobia, and xenophobia were also partially responsible for the sudden rise of Trump from a large field of Republican contenders. And now he will be the next occupant of the Oval Office.

As a result of Trump’s election, many people of color–most notably African-Americans and Hispanics–those of the Muslim faith, women, and LGBT Americans, now live in the fear that they are potential targets in Trump’s brave new world where the alt-right makes alliances with anti-Semites, neo Nazis, and the KKK.

A new symbol has been born as a result of the fear which is rippling across many communities in this country. It’s simple but profound: Wearing a safety pin on your clothing. By doing so, many people are openly declaring that they are allied with groups Trump has verbally attacked over the course of the 2016 campaign.

With this very quiet gesture, many Americans are making a brave statement that they stand in total solidarity with anyone who might be afraid in the nation Trump will soon lead.

The idea is quickly catching on, especially on social media, where a growing number of people are posting photos of themselves and declaring they are “safe places.” They are also showing their solidarity and support for women, people of color, and many other marginalized groups who are, first and foremost, our neighbors and entitled to the same protections the Constitution affords us all.

It has been said many times in many places over the course of this election, but it bears repeating each and every day by all of us who care about our country: Love trumps hate. Always has and, with us all working together, it always will.

President Obama Just LET THE DONALD HAVE IT For His Rampant Sexism (AUDIO)

As we all know, Donald Trump is a jerk of monumental proportions. He’s a racist, a sexist, a xenophobe, a liar, and a bad businessman. And now President Obama is speaking out on the comments Trump has made about former Miss Universe Alicia Machado, whom Trump has called “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping” simply because she happens to be Latina.

President Obama called into the Steve Harvey radio show and told the host:

“You had somebody who basically insulted women and then doubled down I think this morning in terms of how he talks about them and talks about their weight and talks about, you know, how they look instead of the content of their character and their capabilities, which is not somebody that I want in the Oval Office.”

Keep in mind that the President is the proud father of two daughters, and something tells me if Trump had dared to call Malia or Sasha fat, or piggish, the Donald would now be walking with a pronounced limp.

All of this proves that Donald Trump is completely unfit to be President. And it also suggests that Trump’s gender gap with female voters is growing by the day. Just the other night he got his ass handed to him by a woman. Can you imagine how much that stung him?

It’s gonna be so much fun to flush this orange piece of crap down the toilet on Election Day!
