A lot of vile things have been normalized under Trump: white supremacism, misogyny, and crass behavior, just to name a few.
Recently, several articles have spoken about pornography “entering the political and cultural mainstream” due to evangelicals dropping their historical opposition for Trump. None of them have expressed the slightest outrage over his adulterous affair with a porn star.
Conan spoke about one of the articles in his latest monologue:
Pretty much any vile thing you can think of, Trump has already done, and evangelicals have excused. He gets “mulligans” even though he never seeks or asks forgiveness. They don’t care, and neither does he.
It’s not just pornography and adultery. We witnessed first-hand the depravity when evangelicals and Trump rallied to Roy Moore, despite his sexual assault on young teens. In evangelical circles, it’s not at all unusual. For weeks, Trump supporters and GOP officials tried to justify child rape—from arguments as ridiculous as proclaiming Jesus’ dad did the same thing to blaming the 14 year-old victims.
Yet perhaps the worst thing I’ve witnessed has been the result of Trump’s open and lustful attraction to his own daughter. While conservatives have routinely tried to excuse it as harmless humor, there is something extremely disturbing and serious about a father who loves to joke about incest. It’s sick and sends a horrible message to victims of incest.
Now we learn from both Karen McDougal and Stormy Daniels that Trump compared BOTH of them to his fetishized daughter. I cringe at not only the accusation, but the fact that no one seems bothered by the fact that he thinks of Ivanka while having sex with a porn star. The GOP completely excuses it, but I’m also disturbed that Democrats have largely stayed silent on this issue. Why exactly? None of our leaders: Nancy, Chuck, Hillary, Bernie, Biden, Obama, et. al, ever condemn this awful behavior. They won’t speak out because they fear being accused of—what exactly?
You can bet if Obama made remarks about Malia’s “voluptuous” figure, breast size, said it was OK to call her a “piece of XXX”, and kept saying he wanted to date her—coupled with ogling and groping—rightwing politicians and religious leaders would have been beside themselves discussing his moral depravity.
I call on Democrats in Congress to sponsor a resolution condemning incest. Shouldn't be needed.. but it is. It would send a simple yet obvious message to everyone that it is not okay. This shouldn’t be controversial. It’s not like anyone is asking them to denounce neo-nazis.
Some things Trump has said:
- Is it wrong to be more sexually attracted to your own daughter than your wife?
- She’s six feet tall, she’s got the best body…
- Yeah, [Ivanka’s] really something and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married, and ya know, her father…
- Well I think she’s got a lot of Marla, she’s a really beautiful baby. She’s got Marla’s legs. We don’t know whether or not she’s got this part [he cups hands around his chest to illustrate breast region] yet.
- Well, I was going to say sex….[when asked what his favorite thing he has in common with Ivanka]
- [Stern]By the way, you’re daughter…. [Trump]She’s beautiful..[Stern]Can I say this? Is a piece of ass….[Trump]Yeah.
- If Ivanka weren’t my daughter perhaps I’d be dating her
All of this occurred to me during one of my recent spats with a rightwing conservative on Twitter. He is a constant troll whom I always regarded as harmless. In the wake of the latest adultery scandals, I railed against Trump’s creepy obsession with Ivanka.
I got a reply that I at least “had to admit, Trump’s daughter is hot.” This was followed by “If I had a daughter like Ivanka, I’d XXXX the XXXX out of her. Seriously.” I then received the collage I shared in the title photo.
The creep bastard has a daughter.
I blocked him after that.
