President Donald Trump has once again generated controversy via Twitter.
On Thursday, Trumptweeted an inherently sexist remark about MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski.
Trump attacked Brzezinski’s appearance.
But Brzezinski clapped back on Twitter in the most brilliant way.
Trump isn’t going to like this. He’s fairly fragile when it comes to the subject of the size of his hands.
This is hardly the first time we’ve watched Trump exhibit blatant sexism.
Trump has a long history of sexist behavior.
Just this week, the president interrupted a call with a foreign leader to comment on a female reporter’s appearance.
The reporter, Caitrona Perry, was clearly creeped out by this, and you can hardly blame her.
Not to mention, you might remember he was recorded bragging about sexual assault( yet, somehow, people were still OK be voting in favour of him ).
Trump once said you have to treat girls like sh* t , so while we shouldn’t condone his behaviour, it shouldn’t really come as a surprise at this point.
First lady Melania Trump has said she wants to focus on combatting cyberbullying perhaps she should start with her husband.
This is how the first lady’s communications director answered to the president’s sexist attack against Brzezinski: As thefirst lady has stated publicly, when her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder.
Back in November, the first lady told,
Our culture has get too mean and too rough, especially to children and teenagers. It is never OK when a 12 -year-old girl or boy is taunted, bullied or attacked. It is terrible when that happens on the playground and it is absolutely unacceptable when it’s done by someone with no name concealing on the internet.
Has she changed her intellect, or is cyberbullying only OK when her husband is the perpetrator?
Even some Republican condemnedTrump’s tweet, and asked him to consider the consequences of his behavior.
With that said, most Republican legislators were still OK with endorsing Trump during the U.S. presidential campaign, even after the infamous tape.
In other words, they’re arguably complicit in Trump’s behavior.
But, at the least they’re attempting to hold him accountable. Better late than never, I guess.
To be clear, it’s not normal for the president of the United States to behave like a sexist, internet troll.
In the United States, the president is not only meant to make decisions for the betterment of the country, he or she is also supposed to be a role model for future generations and an personification of American values.
When a president assaults a woman for her appearance, it essentially signifies to young people, especially young men, that it’s OK for them to behave the same way.
And what does it say about a country when its leader spends much of his time attacking his critics on social media, while casually sprinkling misogyny in there like some sort of sexist, nightmarish version of salt bae?
Well, it says that we have a long way to go as a society when it comes to respecting girls, and we should arguably be ashamed to have voted such a human into the White House.
