Not my president.
Crying for days.
I'm really trying to understand what all the upset is about. So we have a new president in office. It happens every four or eight years. Like clockwork.
The vitriolic rhetoric from the left is divisive and repulsive. Some on the right are no better.
For example, the perceived war on women. Women were supposed to vote for Clinton because she championed for women's rights. Yes, women have the right to work, to fair pay, to be treated equally in all aspects of life...and the right to choose to abort their babies up until the time of birth. We, the people, were not supposed to mock Clinton's appearance or lack of vitality, voice, clothing choices or mistakes. Those who did were immediately labeled misogynistic, sexist women haters.
But the same standards do not apply to Melania Trump. Apparently, it is not misogynistic or sexist to mock Trump's clothing, love for her spouse, past employment record, European facial features or accent. I could see attacking Trump if she had been directly or indirectly involved in the death of United Status citizens or if she had viciously verbally berated other women for their sexual involvement with her spouse or if Trump had skimmed money from her charitable organization for personal gain. Yes, it would be okay to judge her on her politics. I could also see mocking her if she had a disreputable past. But, honestly, I heard nothing about Trump's past other than her lingerie modeling jobs and her questionable education and immigration status while first in the United States. All of these items were years ago and irrelevant to me.
When Gigi Hadid "impersonated" Trump at the AMAs, she proved how it is acceptable to mock some women and not others. Women everywhere should be outraged and not condone this type of behavior. I would not condone this behavior if it were done to Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama or Sarah Palin. I don't care what their political beliefs are. While I'm no Clinton fan, I have to admire her chutzpah for even running for POTUS at her stage of life. I would never think of mocking her appearance.
Women need to unite and stop the hatred between parties. We need to come together as a country. No one should accept this type of behavior from anyone, regardless of political party. Next time any woman belittles another woman based on her looks, tell that woman to piss off.
