NEW YORK MAGAZINE GETS THE VAPORS: What It’s Like to Be a Female Reporter Covering Donald Trump:
Trump may not be overtly sexist at his rallies, but his supporters often fill in the gaps he leaves for them. And they’re particularly virulent when it comes to his opponent. Bumper stickers that read, “Trump that bitch,” and T-shirts that say, “Hillary sucks, but not like Monica,” are available outside his rallies, and when Jezebel’s Anna Merlan told one vendor she wasn’t comfortable with women being called bitches, he replied, “This one it’s alright; she’s done more dirty than any normal woman.”
“I think you don’t realize the emotional cost of every single day, twice a day, being in rooms where the norm has become people shouting out, ‘Hang the bitch,’ ‘Kill her,’ ‘Cunt,’” the second reporter said. “You shouldn’t be at the point where you hear ‘Cunt’ and you think, Oh, they’re angry at Hillary, or you hear ‘Bitch,’ and you’re like, Oh, they’re talking about our former secretary of State.”
Yes, how dare everyday GOP voters talk about Hillary Clinton the same way that Democrats talked about Sarah Palin in 2008! Not to mention, how Democrats talked about Hillary herself in 2008! (Not least of which, in Obama’s former church.) How dare they use language that can be found in massive amounts of Hollywood movies, cable TV series and rap records. The left spent a half century coarsening the culture, and now wonders why the peasants are so revolting – but they chose the form of their destructor quite a long time ago.
