Donald Trump: The Great Respecter of Women?

Women's Rights Advocates, Elected Officials Protest Outside Of Trump Tower

“Nobody has more respect for women than I do. Nobody. Nobody has more respect.” Donald Trump

If you believe that, please make a bid on Craigslist for the bridge I have for sale that connects San Francisco to Honolulu!

Let’s take a look at some of the things he’s said:

Arianna Huffington “is unattractive both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man- he made a good decision.”

“If Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband, what makes her think she can satisfy America?”  … “Such a nasty woman.”

On Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters: “An extraordinarily low IQ person.”

On Omarosa Manigault-Newman: “When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!”

On Megyn Kelly: “She gets out and she starts asking me all sorts of ridiculous questions. You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes, blood coming out of her wherever.” She’s a “Bimbo.”

Carly Fiorina his Republican rival: “Look at that face. Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next President? I mean, she’s a woman, and I’m not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?”

I want to know what you would think if he (or anyone else) said these things about you (if you’re a woman) or about your mother, sister, wife, or daughter?

[Note: I only included these few remarks since Mr. Trump began running for president. If you look at the ones over the last 35 years it will nauseate you. If it doesn’t, well, that says something about your view of women.]

So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. Genesis 1:27 

An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. The heart of her husband trusts in her, and he will have no lack of gain. Proverbs 31:10-11

Treat older women as mothers and younger women as sisters, in all purity. 1 Timothy 5:2


Ladies and gentlemen, the midterm elections tomorrow boil down to the validation or repudiation of President Trump, and not only his misogyny. It’s up to you to decide which you prefer to do.

  1. Barney , there you go again, counting all the wrong things president Trump has done and blasting it out to your followers. Try being praying for him , God can just maybe put a Christian in his life that can make a change. Blasting him and pointing out all his wrongs just makes you sound that you as a Christian is so much above that sinner. We all sin ! Back in the day when I was straight up sinning, I don’t think I would have walked into your fellowship if I knew you had a list off all my wrongs and preached to the neighborhood how bad I was over and over again. Something to think about.

    1. Thanks for your comments.

      I do pray for Mr. Trump everyday (well, sometimes I forget).

      I wouldn’t think of listing your sins or anyone else’s and preaching them to the neighborhood. Mr. Trump is a public person, maybe the most public person alive. As an elected official, it is the privilege, prerogative, and responsibility of American citizens to speak the truth about power. Those who have access to power should speak truth directly to it (him). I believe that our president is a dangerous to our citizenry spiritually, morally, socially, politically, and every other way. I’m appalled that, after all we know about him, much of the Christian community continues to support and defend this man and his presidency. That is why I use my tiny social media pulpit to encourage my friends to oppose rather than endorse him and his policies (on immigration, women’s issues, climate change, foreign policy, health care, racial equality, tax laws….).

      I hope you can see my point. Either way, thanks for chiming in.
