Misogyny in the Run for President

Thank you to Michael Barbaro and Megan Twohey of the New York Times for today's report documenting dt's mistreatment of women over the years.

It's a sad story, beginning with a misogynist and autocratic father, continuing with an all-male military academy for his high school years.  

He earned the yearbook's title of "ladies man."  Things only went downhill from there as he acquired the Miss Universe pageant and treated the contestants as horses to be examined physically.

He was whining last Monday about how Hillary Clinton treated the women Bill had affairs with.  

Of course, no male candidate for president ever gets hounded about how he treated the men his wife had affairs with.  

There used to be one way to treat such men--shoot them.  But Donald complains that Hillary wasn't nice enough to the female counterparts of these men.  Men get to shoot; women have to be nice. 

Thank God the Times has nailed him on his own treatment of women over the years.  

It's going to be a long six months.

I'm grateful for an active press corps that can hoist dt on his own petard.
