Courtesy of Addicting Info:Barbara Res on her former boss, Donald Trump: "He has to be stopped" #inners https://t.co/gLOKoF3NzK— All In w/Chris Hayes (@allinwithchris) May 19, 2016
Res, who oversaw the construction of Trump Tower and now supports Hillary Clinton, explained to Hayes that Trump “will put our country back thirty years” and “will be bad for our country.”
She added, “I don’t think he has the experience to be president, or the political knowledge to be president.” Res also said Trump’s policies are “very backward, very anti-woman, very anti-woman” and very “anti-progress.”
Gee no kidding.
And it could not happen too soon as Trump is already taking up the conservative conspiracy theories to go after Hillary Clinton, and even more pointedly Bill Clinton.
Courtesy of the Washington Post:
Donald Trump went there last night on Fox News, accusing Bill Clinton of “rape.” In an exchange between Trump and Sean Hannity, the Fox host railed against recent media coverage of Trump’s treatment of women, asking whether women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct would also be interviewed. And then this transpired:
“In one case, it’s about exposure. In another case, it’s about groping and fondling and touching against a woman’s will,” Hannity said.
“And rape,” Trump responded.
Whenever Trump says this kind of thing — for instance, when he says he will be attacking Hillary Clinton for enabling Bill Clinton’s womanizing — a great burst of hand-wringing and gnashing of teeth pours forth from Democrats who fear that Trump’s “unconventional” and “unpredictable” attacks could prove difficult to fend off.
(Of course Trump might want to cool his jets on this line of attack, as he is not the only one that can play this game.)
If all of that were not enough there is a commentary on the Post that also, quite seriously, discusses the possibility of Donald Trump's presidency making fascism fashionable in America:
This is how fascism comes to America, not with jackboots and salutes (although there have been salutes, and a whiff of violence) but with a television huckster, a phony billionaire, a textbook egomaniac “tapping into” popular resentments and insecurities, and with an entire national political party — out of ambition or blind party loyalty, or simply out of fear — falling into line behind him.
Worried yet? Yeah, me too.
