America, you elected a pig

Donald Trump is a pig.

This morning, true to form, like a dementia patient with a perpetual case of reverse Sundowner’s, Trump launched a vicious and misogynist Twitter attack on “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski.

Trump called Mika “low IQ” and “crazy,” and then graced us with an updated version of his disgusting “blood” attack that he used last year against Megyn Kelly. Trump mika brzezinski

CNN found photos of Brzezinski speaking with Trump at the New Year’s Eve event, and it goes without saying that there were no bandages and there was no bleeding. Yes, Trump lied again.

Trump’s misogynistic comments about Brzezinski are hardly happening in a vacuum.

You’ll recall that last year Trump attacked then- Fox News journalist Megyn Kelly, for her performance hosting one of the GOP debates, by talking about Kelly’s menstrual period:

“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. In my opinion, she was off base.”

And who can forget the “Access Hollywood” tape where Trump claimed to enjoy sexually assaulting women?

And just yesterday, Trump appeared to flirt with an Irish reporter, who later called Trump’s actions “bizarre.”

For her part, Melania Trump, who had earlier claimed she was going to devote her First Lady tenure to combat cyber-bullying, today defended her husband’s cyber-misogyny:

“As the First Lady has stated publicly in the past, when her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder.”

It’s unclear if Melania was blinking in code while the statement was being made.

Melania, you’ll recall, defended neo-Nazis harassing a Jewish journalist last year, claiming that the reporter “provoked” the Nazis by writing a profile of Mrs. Trump.

So, take Mrs. Trump’s morale admonitions with a hefty grain of salt.

Interestingly, just two weeks ago, First Daughter Ivanka Trump lamented the “viciousness” of Washington, DC. Perhaps Ivanka was simply referring to her own family.

    Bill Clinton is a pig – DADT, DOMA, NAFTA, gutting welfare, deregulation and the collapse of 2008, hiring 100,000 knew cops and murdering half a million Iraqi children. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/09dd4227d84304ead078778e4eadd1cf09ca8a11bde6aafc0a4c83439a768da7.jpg

    yes, Trump is a pig.

    But warmongering Neocons are pigs too, and represent the OPPOSITE of Progressive values in foreign policy. Too many on the center-left seem to be forgetting the lessons of the early GDubyaBush 2000s (WMDs. Aluminum tubes, yellowcake Uranium from Niger, “smoking gun that could come in th3 form of a mushroom cloud”, etc etc).

    Why would you insult pigs by comparing them to Il Duce Arancia?

  • goulo

    I heard a rumor that Trump kept loudly bothering people at a party, and his face was bleeding badly from a yam-skin transplant.

    ;)

  • I think in Trump’s case, he can’t help himself. In McConnell’s case, I think he IS in fact using these outbursts to work behind the scenes away from public attention on health care.

    Don’t dismiss the possibility that his piggy-outburst is a Weapon Of Mass-Distraction.

    Just ask: WHAT ELSE is going on right now that we should be looking at?

    Pigs, unlike Trump, are actually quite intelligent, and can’t help being what they are. Donald Trump is, supposedly, a mature adult human. Although, he tends to exhibit the behavior and impulse control of a toddler. His toilet training must have been a nightmare.

  • Quilla

    Disappointed in her reaction. Some stern words about “grown men sitting behind that desk shouldn’t act like pigs” would have had a lot of us cheering.

  • Demosthenes

    At least Don the Con didn’t Trump didn’t try to “grab” at Ms. Perry. For him, that’s restraint.

  • This had to happen. When you pretend it was legitimate and wasn’t stolen, it *has* to get worse and worse; and never get better. #ITMFA

    Should America have a natural/manmade disaster, and we’re unprepared (think George C- Bush-level fuck-ups); we’ll remember how Tbag spent time!
