One suspects that if the Republican Party nominee, Donald Trump, succeeds in his campaign to be elected the president of the United States he intends to politically treat the people of the US the same way he privately treats women, and “…grab ’em by the pussy” (or balls). His performance in the recent debate with Hillary Clinton seems to have boosted his standing among his supporters, and some detractors, though Christ knows how. The contemptuous dismissing of Clinton throughout the televised encounter as “she” and “her” grated on my nerves but so far it has largely escaped censure by the media pundits. Surely that level of gender-sneering is just as revealing of his true attitudes as any amount of “bawdy” or “locker-room” talk (a very American concept, in any case)? In the wake of the scandal the CNN host Brooke Baldwin interviewed Vicki Sciolaro, of the Kansas Republican Party, and her on-air reaction to the latter’s defence of Kaiser Drumpf is priceless.
