Donald Trump, considered by many to be the nation’s most despicable presidential candidate in recent history, who has shown he has zero respect for women, must absolutely hate the fact that his opponent is a woman who is beating him badly in the polls. Hillary Clinton is showing she has more experience, intelligence, leadership qualities and class in total than he has in one orange hair follicle.
Trump’s response to Clinton’s blistering speech directed at him on Thursday in Nevada was to resort to his usual name calling and retaliated by accusing her of being a “bigot.” But like everything else that comes out of Trump’s mouth, he didn’t have any facts to back up his claim that Clinton has shown prejudice toward any group of people, which is what bigotry means.
When CNN’s Anderson Cooper tried valiantly to get specific instances of bigotry by Clinton from the former reality star, Trump tap-danced all over the place, which is a move he has been perfecting for months.
Here is part of Trump’s dizzying explanation on CNN with Cooper Thursday:
Cooper: So you’re saying she has hatred or dislike of black people?
Trump: Her policies are bigoted because she knows they’re not going to work.
Cooper: But you’re saying she’s personally bigoted …
Trump: Oh she is. Of course she is. Her policies. They’re her policies she comes out with the policies and others that believe like she does also but she came out with policies over the years. This is over the years. Long time. She’s totally bigoted — there’s no question about that.
Cooper: But it does imply that she has antipathy that she has hatred toward, I guess in this case you’re talking about African-Americans, but I don’t want to put words in your mouth.
Trump: I think she has been extremely extremely bad for African-Americans. I think she has been extremely bad for Hispanics. You look at what’s happened with her policies and the policies of President Obama and others. Look at the poverty. Look at the rise in poverty. Look at the rise in violence.
Cooper: But hatred is at the core of that or dislike of African-Americans?
Trump: Or maybe she’s lazy.
Lazy? Yeah, that must be it.
Trump, on the other hand, has shown racism toward every group of people that can be categorized, except white men. He has insulted blacks, Hispanics, women, Muslims, the elderly, the disabled and babies.
Women have been the target of his misogynist remarks for decades. Especially, celebrity women, including Rosie O’Donnell, Heidi Klum and who can forget his “blood” comments directed at Fox News commentator Megyn Kelly at the first GOP debate?
How can anyone of any race or gender with half a brain cell take this deplorable man as a serious candidate to be president of the United States?
