White women played a large part in Donald Trump’s surge to the presidency in 2016. Some of those women spoke to Al Jazeera this Thursday and explained why Trump won’t be getting their vote in 2020.

When President Donald Trump narrowly won Pennsylvania’s 20 electoral votes in 2016, he did so with help of many white women — about half of whom voted for him in the Keystone State four years ago.

Writing in The Atlantic this Monday, Yasmeen Serhan says that President Trump’s penchant for personality politics has caused him to find common cause with leaders in whom he shares similarities: “populists and nationalists who share a disregard for norms, a disdain for dissent, and a dedication to strengthening their own power.” While some leaders Trump […]

Donald Trump Calls Kamala Harris 'A Monster' During Unhinged Rant On Fox Business 8.10.2020 Crooks Liars
An unhinged Donald Trump joined Maria Bartiromo on FOX Business Thursday morning where he indulged in a self-indulgent, whining interview covering a wide range of topics, which included bashing his own FBI director, demanding that Hillary be locked up, refusing to attend the 2nd debate because it would be virtual and then, in one of the most unhinged parts, calling Kamala Harris a "monster". "This monster that was onstage with Mike Pence, who destroyed her last night, by the way. This monster, she says, 'no no, there won't be fracking,' there won't be this. Everything she said is a lie." WHAT? Trump has a history of insulting women he doesn't like with particularly awful adjectives. Remember when he called Hillary Clinton a "nasty woman"? But a MONSTER? He called a sitting Senator and the first woman of Black and South Asian descent to be on the ticket of either party - to call her a MONSTER? Insanity. This definitely won't help Trump woo any woman voters. My god. Racist foghorn. Twitter erupted: Trump ...

Trump and Social Norms 24.9.2020 The Moderate Voice

His base calls it “speaking his mind,” or “telling it like it is.” People with even one iota of intelligence call it breaking down social norms and using the bully pulpit as a platform to assert his power. In the guise of speaking his mind, Trump trumpets all kinds of lies as facts, chastising those […]

ANATOMY OF A MAN-MADE DISASTER: 595 ways Trump has failed to protect us from COVID-19 30.8.2020 Raw Story
