Thin-Skinned GOP Nominee Continues Misogynist Attacks on Alicia Machado at 3 AM

Repeating libels from Alex Jones and his crony Paul Joseph Watson
Politics • Views: 48,006

In the debate Monday night, Hillary Clinton laid a trap for Donald Trump by bringing up Trump’s ugly misogynistic and bigoted comments about former Miss Universe Alicia Machado. Trump was obviously surprised, repeating “Where did you get this? Where did you get this?” in a petulant voice as Clinton described him calling Machado “Miss Piggy” and “Miss Housekeeping.”

And the trap worked beautifully. Five days after the debate Trump is still ranting about Machado, like Wile E. Coyote falling for a Roadrunner trick over and over.

YouTube

Clinton’s barb got so far under Trump’s skin that last night at 2:30 am Eastern time, he tweeted a series of misogynist attacks on Machado — again!

Let’s get one thing out of the way immediately. The charge that Machado appeared in a “sex tape” is ludicrous and false, and apparently originated with vile conspiracy-monger Alex Jones’s crony Paul Joseph Watson. The only thing even close to a “sex tape” in Machado’s history was a (probably staged) non-graphic scene in a Spanish reality TV show. And the other accusations in Watson’s smear piece are similarly exaggerated and distorted. (Standard practice for Infowars.)

But aside from the dishonesty of the smear, what does it say about the Republican Party’s presidential candidate that his skin is so paper-thin he’s still ranting about this woman almost a week later — and tweeting angrily in the middle of the night?

The bottom line: the GOP’s nominee for president is seriously unhinged.

I don’t think Clinton has to do anything now to set Trump off. He’s already raging and I don’t think it will stop.

I’m sure she is loaded for bear though: If he stops raging or if his campaign can get him back on track, I’m pretty sure she has other things to unload on him.

If Ms. Machado set him off this easily, what would the accusation he broke the law by exploring deals in Cuba do?

And if he is stupid enough to bring up her husband, she can nail him to the wall.

This is…unhinged, even for Trump. A few notes. What kind of man stays up all night to smear a woman with lies and conspiracy theories? Alicia deserves praise for courageously standing up to Trump’s attacks. And he has the gall to blame her for his cruel behavior—and even say he “helped”? When something gets under Donald’s thin skin, he lashes out and can’t let go. This is dangerous for a presidential candidate, never mind a president. What’s more: This is a pattern of flying off the handle at women who defy, criticize, or otherwise displease Trump. To Donald, women like Alicia are only as valuable as his personal opinion about their looks. He obsessively bullies Rosie O’Donnell, an accomplished actor. He calls female reporters and news hosts who question him “”crazy”” and “neurotic,” or worse. He insulted Kim Kardashian for her weight—when she was pregnant. It’s pathetic. We’ve heard Donald’s insults for years, and his policies reflect this disregard—even contempt—for women: On equal pay, Trump says women should just “do as good a job” as men. He thinks women who get an abortion should be “punished.” He called pregnancy an “inconvenience” to employers. Wives working are “dangerous.” He’s never hidden how he truly feels about women, but it’s never been clearer than right now: he doesn’t respect half the population of this country—and he doesn’t deserve to lead it.

My own local newspaper, the Scottsbluff Star-Herald (conservative-leaning), back on July 6 chose to endorse neither Hillary Clinton nor Donald Trump.

starherald.com

This was back when Senator Sanders was still in the race. The opening of the article (a magic balance fairy argument that both are equally bad):

Do you want to know why Bernie Sanders is still in the presidential race? It’s because he actually cares about this country and making it better. And he’s made a difference. He pushed so hard, some of his stances are being added to the 2016 Democratic platform.

However, we have two presumptive nominees who only care about themselves and say whatever they need to in order to get elected. Hillary Clinton is capitulating because Sanders brings to light all the ways government has failed Americans.

On the other side, we have an egomaniac who is the most racist and bigoted candidate I’ve seen in a long time. Donald Trump does nothing but sling mud, spew hate and provide vapid responses that crowds cheer over. He then falls back behind the “I’m not saying we should do this, but maybe we should think about it” rhetoric as an excuse to claim he’s not responsible for the garbage he says.

Rush chimes in about Trump’s all night coke bender tweetstorm:

Tweeting out about this woman, this Alicia Machado babe, even at 3:00 this morning, while other issues are much more important, the issues that frame and define Hillary Clinton as unqualified and unfit and as corrupt. And they wish Trump would stop this. Too many other things, it’s getting too close to the election to be side-tracked by all of this. And especially, this Alicia Machado thing is a set up. It was a fix that has been in and has been planned by the Clinton campaign for a long time, just like Sandra Fluke was.

Talk about an acrobatic feat to conflate Machado and Sandra Fluke. Wow. Impressive.

Mr. Jim Wright at Stonekettle weighs in on the hypocrisy of people like Newt Gingrich and his revolving door of wives, Donald Trump claiming he was showing “restraint” for not bringing up Bill Clinton’s peccadillo in the White House, and Mr. Trump’s attacks on Alicia Machado.

Newton Leroy Gingrich, a man who married his high school geometry teacher when he was 18 (and really, no creepy factor there, right, Conservatives? Nooo), then cheated on her (while she was in the hospital recovering from cancer) with the woman who would become his second wife. Then cheated on his second wife with his third wife - while at the same time attempting to impeach Bill Clinton for lying about having an extramarital affair. All of which, somehow says something bad about Hillary Clinton’s character, I guess. Apparently. Nothing to see here, move along, move along.

This tactic was so successful for Newt that it got him booted from office and made Bill Clinton into one of the most popular presidents in recent history.

But, yeah, Trump should listen to this guy, because Newt, he’s what Republicans nowadays consider an intellectual.

And in to further cement his intellectual credentials, Newt just had to weigh in on fat chicks. Last night during the annual Republican Spirit of Lincoln Dinner, SPIRIT OF LINCOLN DINNER BAWAHAHAH …

The whole article is at the link above. As usual, Mr. Wright nails the hypocrisy of this bizarre week that started with the debate.

As some of you might have seen, our older cat passed away suddenly two weeks ago. We took him to the animal hospital to arrange cremation that night, and I got a call that I could pick him up this morning.

I got home and looked at the lovely wooden box that his remains are contained in, then noticed another box and opened it. This made me cry like a baby and realize how much I really miss the little guy. It’s now on a shelf right above my desk so I can see it and think of him every day.

Actually, Trump probably meant that women having sex with anyone else except him is “disgusting”. And I’m pretty sure that’s exactly what he thinks. In his mind, he’s The Man With The Golden Gun Schlong.

More than anything else that the dirtbags who have stolen the title of ‘conservative’ do, it’s their suppression of voting that makes me loathe them.

It’s one of the cornerstones of democracy, the one freedom that is the foundation to all others. People died, and worse, for that freedom.

These scumbags show their true authoritarian beliefs when they suppress the vote.

Last thread we were going over the NYT piece about millenials. Here’s evidence of the crappiness of that article: Polls (DK link). I can’t copy the table while I’m at work, but Millenials are the only age group giving more than 50% of their support to Clinton, and by extension, the group with the largest gap between Clinton and the rest of the field.

So, the millenials here can enjoy the fact that their group is far more sane than the rest of us. The rest of can yell at the idiotic stories written about millenials.

I lost my 16 year old spaniel about a month ago. I was fortunate to find a vet (an angel if there ever was one) who provides home end of life pet services including euthanasia. My precious boy felt no fear or discomfort, resting easily on his favorite blankie on our bed. The vet and her assistant were so caring and compassionate, giving us considerable time together to share our last goodbyes here in the privacy of our home. With her help, it was a final loving gift and moving experience. I cannot recommend enough choosing this option when possible - it made a world of difference.

Having been through this many times before, I opted to not have his ashes returned or his paw print made, though it was offered. Spreading ashes is, to me, just a repeat of the goodbye and too painful. His picture on my dresser that I see every night and first thing in the morning when I wake is enough to keep him alive in my heart (that’s still broken but getting better). I hope for all of us who have lost our dear ones recently that the grief is replaced by joyful memories soon.

Pippin is the second cat we’ve lost inside a year - we lost our Zoey on the day after Christmas last year, and he had been very sick for a long time. We felt that rather than prolong his suffering, we’d say our goodbyes and send him over the bridge. It was so difficult, but it was a small comfort that he was no longer an young cat trying to get around in an old cat’s body. It was just better to let him go.

Pippin was the jokester - a feral who would do everything to cheese me off, but would make me laugh out loud while doing it. I just couldn’t get mad at him. But we gave him a good like and he gave us his kitty presence, which brightened an awful lot of days around here. I couldn’t have asked for more.

Pippin was a feral that we rescued, and he never had the best hygiene - he depended upon our oldest cat to groom him. Once Zoey was gone, he just kind of went downhill.

My wife believes that without Zoey to be his pal, he just kind of gave up.

Thank you for the hugs, and hugs back to you. This morning my wife said that cats and dogs shouldn’t be allowed to grow old. An impossibility, but one I totally agree with.

“Dogs’ lives are short, too short, but you know that going in. You know the pain is coming, you’re going to lose a dog, and there’s going to be great anguish, so you live fully in the moment with her, never fail to share her joy or delight in her innocence, because you can’t support the illusion that a dog can be your lifelong companion. There’s such beauty in the hard honesty of that, in accepting and giving love while always aware that it comes with an unbearable price. Maybe loving dogs is a way we do penance for all the other illusions we allow ourselves and the mistakes we make because of those illusions.”

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a Trump adviser, complained on CNN that the media kept asking about the matter, even when host Carol Costello pointed out that Trump was the one helping to keep it in the news.

“He’s made it very clear when he’s attacked, he is going to respond, and that’s what he’s doing today,” Sanders said. “But again, I think the media can easily change the narrative of this race. Let’s talk about the things that Americans care about.”

Warning: possibly lifeless horse flogging to commence in this comment.

Responding to a question from MsJ about the whole “Trump is demented-no, seriously, as in medically demented” — about whether I’ve done a compare/contrast between Trump in his 80s/90s heyday, and Trump now … yes I have. (Text of reply to MsJ’s polite and very thoughtful question copied below)

Going back to the - admittedly limited - archive of things from the 80s, he showed no signs of the volatility, repetition and meandering that now mark his public appearances.

Then again, most of his video appearances from that epoch were scripted.

Then again again, most of his appearances these days are scripted as well. He just lacks the self-control to stick to the script.

Oprah Winfrey Interviews Donald Trump in 1988

Check out the faster pace of his sentences. And yeah, he jumps from subject to subject, but there *is* a throughline there, and the sentences come out in an order that has a beginning-middle-end. Nothing there about a 10-year-old kid who is great with his Apple IIc, or a 400-lb person on a bed, or Rosie O’Donnell (or the 80s equivalent, which would be Ruth Buzzi).

Speaking of Republicans and Clinton. I read John Warner’s endorsement of her. It’s a strong endorsement. Talks about how when both were on the Armed Forces committee that she was respectful and notes very strongly that the Republican ticket is not. This is a funny election for us in Virginia. We got a former senator in Warner and governor in Holton (Tim Kaine’s father in law) backing Clinton and Jim Webb’s former chief adviser Dave Saunders endorsing Trump and Webb while he has not endorsed either seems more empathetic to Trump than Clinton. I’ve always respected former senator Warner for his independence. We’re talking about a man who voted against Robert Bork’s confirmation for the Supreme Court, opposed Ollie North’s run for Senate, and never towed the so-con line.

“…Under the proposal, the new Middle East and North African designation — or MENA, as it’s called by population scholars — is broader in concept than Arab (an ethnicity) or Muslim (a religion). It would include anyone from a region of the world stretching from Morocco to Iran, and including Syrian and Coptic Christians, Israeli Jews and other religious minorities…”

“…Under current law, people from the Middle East are considered white, the legacy of century-old court rulings in which Syrian Americans argued that they should not be considered Asian — because that designation would deny them citizenship under the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act. But scholars and community leaders say more and more people with their roots in the Middle East find themselves caught between white, black and Asian classifications that don’t fully reflect their identities…”

Warning: possibly lifeless horse flogging to commence in this comment.

Responding to a question from MsJ about the whole “Trump is demented-no, seriously, as in medically demented” — about whether I’ve done a compare/contrast between Trump in his 80s/90s heyday, and Trump now … yes I have. (Text of reply to MsJ’s polite and very thoughtful question copied below)

Going back to the - admittedly limited - archive of things from the 80s, he showed no signs of the volatility, repetition and meandering that now mark his public appearances.

Then again, most of his video appearances from that epoch were scripted.

Then again again, most of his appearances these days are scripted as well. He just lacks the self-control to stick to the script.

[Embedded content]

Check out the faster pace of his sentences. And yeah, he jumps from subject to subject, but there *is* a throughline there, and the sentences come out in an order that has a beginning-middle-end. Nothing there about a 10-year-old kid who is great with his Apple IIc, or a 400-lb person on a bed, or Rosie O’Donnell (or the 80s equivalent, which would be Ruth Buzzi).

I saw this one and thought exactly the same thing. Same words (disaster, etc.) but none of the crazy stuff we see now. Further, I do not think you are beating a dead horse. I am not a fan of long distance diagnosis, nor is most anyone else, but the guy is off, as I said here.

I’ve been saying that for ages. Primaries should have a minimum of five states per week starting on February 1. Knock all of the primaries out by May 1. As soon as the nominees are decided, everything stops cold — no ads, no campaigning, no town halls, nada — until the conventions. After that, it’s balls to the wall through election day.

I wish we’d do this. But we won’t.

There is no way that Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell can handwave away Trump’s tweets attacking a private citizen, calling her a slut, and encouraging his supporters to search for a non-existent porn video (even though the Republican platform is anti-porn). This is beyond disgusting and is certainly not presidential. His obsessive need to attack his detractors shows that he lacks the demeanor and temperament needed to hold the most powerful position in this country (and arguably, the world).

Some Millennials are waking up to why voting for Secretary Clinton is so important.

This one started in 2013 when Hillary left the State Department. Immediately the media began talking about her running for President in 2016. She, to her credit, took a year off and refused to talk about it. But by 2014 it was apparent the wheels were in motion. That was about the time Jeb! started making noises. We’re not even to November yet and fucking Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are laying the groundwork for 2020.

In other words, we don’t have an election cycle here. We have perpetual electioneering. As a country, we have a pretty good democracy, but we suck at the process of Democracy.

Donald Trump Said He Promised Ivanka He Wouldn’t Date Girls Younger Than Her

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said in a 1999 interview that he once promised his daughter Ivanka he’d never date a girl younger than her.

Ivanka Trump would have been 17 in 1999, when Trump made the claim to radio host Howard Stern, according to the New York Daily News.

“I have a deal with her. She’s 17 and doing great ― Ivanka. She made me promise, swear to her that I would never date a girl younger than her,” Trump said. “So as she grows older, the field is getting very limited.”

I think you’re right. I think the television media needed cover…because they’re fecking pussies. They couldn’t state the truth until the print media gave them cover.

Oh, dammit.

Had to stand up and walk out of the room. Can’t breathe for a minute.

I keep telling myself that the love that I feel for those furry clowns is a testament to my humanity and capacity for love. That this pain is a good thing. It comes from a place of love and appreciation, and that the best reaction that I could possibly have is just to extend that love to the furry clowns currently in my life, and to the humans and other creatures that share this rock with me.

re: #368 HappyWarrior

Those two got a very weird relationship.

I was super close with my dad…both of my parents, actually. When I was little, I would crawl into their bed and mom would take one hand and dad the other and we would lie there and talk. My dad and I had Sunday morning outings every single week for the first 12 years of my life. Like I said, we were super close.

What I see between these two is not a normal closeness, even when you are really very, very close with a parent. And I think I speak from my own experience with my own parents and how close we were. My dad never touched me like Trump does Ivanka. Trump completely creeps me out. He’s like a clown hovering over you after you wake up from a nightmare about clowns.

The pic with him on the phone - man, that’s creepy. Especially if you step back, remove the Father/Daughter relationship between the two subjects, and look at what it is. You have a bed, and on it a guy on the phone looking harried while an attractive young girl throws her bare legs over him and pulls him to her to kiss him.

If you didn’t know who they are, you’d assume that it was a guy torn between doing business on the phone, and fucking the obviously hot-for-him babe.

Now, let’s add back the fact that she’s his daughter. And then let’s add in her age - she looks under 14. Yeesh!

It’s one of the creepiest things I’ve ever seen that wasn’t designed to be creepy.

Seriously, the rhetorical path that politics is taking right now is…not good.

Conspiracy logic is ramping up. It’s been present for awhile…various versions of the Stab In The Back—but now we’ve got the nominee of one of the two major parties leaning hard on the idea that everythingthat goes wrong is a conspiracy—and he’s not getting push back from his allies of followers. His fellow “conservatives” can only walk so far away from his rhetoric, since they’re still relying on milder versions of the same idea.

seriously though i gotta wonder sometimes how many people truly “believe” this stuff.

i think a lot of it is just words strung together to create the appearance of a coherent argument

and then the argument is just pulled out and used with no real context or care whether its true false relevant or really, anything.

its not even lets throw a bunch of stuff at the wall and see what sticks.
its more like lets just throw a bunch of stuff, full stop.

It’s just going to be so strange.

Few care about the VP debates. But still, I expect Pence to pitch hard to his religious-right base, to get the Je$u$ crowd fully into the fold.

I’m sure that’s the GOP establishment plan B. If Trump wins, they will try to find a way to get rid of Trump in favor of Pence, preferably before inauguration day. The GOP establishment wants to rule America and steal everything in sight. Random nuclear armageddon started by a Trump Twitter meltdown interferes with this agenda.

Tribal politics 101. Movement conservatives in the US believe that they and everything they do is good, and that liberals and everything liberals do is evil. Once that attitude is fully adopted, debates, arguments to rationally justify public policy positions, political compromise, etc. all become completely irrelevant and are totally opposed.

How so? Trump is a bigoted hater. The US religious right has always been about the hate. Many/most US evangelicals stand exposed as bigoted haters in view of their support for Trump.

Trump does not depart from Evangelical ideals (as practiced by most religious right leaders and followers) in any meaningful way.

Okay people, I need your help. I’m at my mother in law’s. I bought her an iPhone (my wife likes iPhones and it’s her mother) last year (6S) and because she’s getting on in years I disabled all passcodes or lock screens. Makes it easy. She turns it on and she can call us.

Well, she got upgraded to iOS10 it appears, and now her phone is asking for a non-existent 6 digit passcode. I already tried the hard reset (home & Power hold for reboot) and it doesn’t even blink. I’m up to 15 minute lockout now which sucks (fuck you in your grave Steve).

Any thoughts? What the fuck is this password shit when I never set one?

I work in a very Republican area and have RWNJ coworkers. While I avoid talking politics at work, they know I’m a liberal (I complained about a TV in the lab playing FOX all day). At least some have realized liberals don’t match the caricature they’re been fed.

And when they discover I’m knowledgeable (to a greater extent than they are) about issues it seems to disturb them even more.

I haven’t caught up yet, but if it’s not ripping off a scab by this point, I just wanted to say how sorry I am about makeitstop’s cat Pippin. As some of you may remember, we lost our yellow tabby Pumpkin on Labor Day Sunday—and today would have been his 15th birthday, so I was kind of sad anyway.

Sometimes I think it’s not worth it, but then I think of all the good times we had together, and I know it is. Just remember he wouldn’t have changed a thing….

“I honestly don’t know how big of a role newspaper endorsements play in voting patterns but I do think it could have a small positive impact for her.”

I agree. I’ve also been thinking that it has to depress the hell out of GOPers who tend to think that if they live in a red state, no media outlet should have anything good to say about Democrats. The newspapers in red states that have endorsed HRC are being attacked by Republicans who view them as “traitors” to the conservative cause, whatever the hell that it.
