The President’s tweets have not been an issue for me one way or another. If I were advising him, I would naturally recommend that he be far more careful. However, that being said, the press just tries to use every tweet against him in some way. I think most people realize that and pay little attention to their obfuscation and outright falsification of the news.
What wrinkled up my forehead and started this post was the heavy response by women. Evidently, President Trump hit below the belt and committed a social faux pas when he mentioned that lady’s (?) facelift. This implies that there were/are rules in effect, I have heard endless clips of “THE MORNING JOE” , if there were any rules of civility and decorum being observed while covering President Trump it has not been at all apparent. Have we not heard the main stream media report every unconfirmed rumor, each unsubstantiated allegation? Do they not call the properly elected President of the United States every foul and disgusting name that is legal to utter on television? Furthermore, “THE MORNING JOE” is one of the worst shows to do this!
There may very well have been better ways to handle it, but if the President or the White House strikes back after so much constant abuse and rhetoric that is honestly beyond the pale and shameful for any American broadcasting station, no one should complain. She has said horrible, nasty and outright untrue things including that our President is mentally unstable, unqualified for the job, etc. The response to the tweet is that President Trump is being a misogynist and has no respect for women.
This is absolutely and unequivocally not true. In general, if one keeps an open mind and actually pays attention, he treats men and women exactly the same (in their chosen field). If they work with men as equals and hold themselves out as such then he treats them accordingly. https://www.yahoo.com/news/whats-up-with-donald-trump-and-the-women-not-090043983.html
To apply this to the tweet, our President would naturally assume that if you can dish out such gutter worthy below-the-belt trash then you ought to be able to take it like the pro you are holding yourself out to be. I have worked in construction, definitely a male dominated field, there is a choice you have to make as a woman. You can be a lady on a construction site or you can be a woman who demands (and gives) respect while interacting as an equal. It isn’t easy, but it can be done, however, you cannot flip back and forth between the two! The same is true for any profession.
There is no honor in hitting a man where it hurts and then hiding behind behind being a woman when he turns around.
