It’s not a subtle point

Trump says it’s all a joke,  it’s for laughs, it’s entertainment.

Donald Trump said Wednesday that derogatory statements he has made toward women were all for the sake of “entertainment” and did not reflect his true feelings.

“A lot of that was done for the purpose of entertainment; there’s nobody that has more respect for women than I do,” the real estate mogul told Las Vegas’ KSNV-TV in an interview taped Wednesday ahead of a rally in Henderson, Nevada.

Oh Donald. Donald Donald Donald. Don’t be ridiculous. Of course there’s anybody who has more respect for women than you do. There are billions of people who have more respect for women than you do. Billions. With a B.

Mind you, now I think of it, I doubt you have anything that can be called “respect” for anyone apart from yourself. I think your narcissism is that consuming and that absolute.

But your contempt for women is something special, and it’s not at all an act done for laughs. The distinction can’t really be made, anyway. If you hold people up for mockery and ridicule, even if you do it just for laughs, then you don’t respect them.

The assholes of the world don’t seem to grasp this point, do they.
