Remember the good old days when we thought raunchy, predatory comments about women’s genitals could sink a politician?
President Donald Trump’s tweet calling Omarosa Manigault Newman a “dog” and a “crazed, crying lowlife” Tuesday morning stirred almost instant outrage, many dubbing the comments sexist, racist and dehumanizing.
President Donald Trump on Tuesday referred to former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman as a “dog.”
Nevada Democrat Jacky Rosen casts herself as a woman of the people. She worked her way through college as a waitress, worked her way up the corporate ladder as a computer programmer and opened her own consulting business. Now, she is running in a competitive race for U.S. Senator in the state.
I am an angry woman. And I am not alone.
For me, the current cycle of anger started with the women’s U.S. Open final last month.

From the start of the Trump Presidency, many Beltway wise men, and more than a few of Donald Trump’s own advisers said, Don’t pay attention to the tweets; forget the overheated language and the alarming one-liners coming out of Trump’s constant campaign-style rallies. Pay attention to the policy. They repeated this even after Trump fired his White House chief of staff and Secretary of State on Twitter, and started making policy announcements to his followers that his advisers didn’t know about. They are still, essentially, telling us to disregard what the President says.
