Crass Heard 'Round the World
Disgusting, shameful, totally disrespectful "locker room" garbage, privately shared between two Hollywood playboys over a decade ago, is now made to be "the crudeness heard 'round the world." The old Bush and Trump braggart comments were beyond abhorrent and offensive, though both boys apologized for them.
Oh my God! Has Palin, like numerous other GOP women, finally reached the end of her patience with Donald Trump and is now willing to condemn his actions and withdrawal her endorsement for the good of the party?
Please, just who do you think we are talking about here?
As offensive, however, is media obsession with a very old conversation between non-political figures when we're in a crucial time facing earth-altering shifts in our future. The Supreme Court, international tinderbox relationships, global security, and our entire economy hang in the balance. With the question of what kind of country we will leave our daughters and sons unanswered, I wisely look at today's candidates' positions and what they have accomplished, while being well aware there are no perfect candidates. I encourage all to quit putting faith in flawed human beings.
You first lady.
Going around media filters you clearly see one candidate offering a bold vision with solid plans to build a stronger, safer, greater America (Wait, "one candidate offering a bold vision with solid plans to build a stronger, safer, greater America?" Is she getting ready to endorse Hillary Clinton?), while the career politician in the race offers only tired, sad, unsustainable, illogical ways of the past that will leave our children unsafe, broken and abused.
Oh I forgot, in Palin's world everything up is down, and everything down is up.
In today's Presidential race, it's only telling which candidate participated in cruder past conversations if both candidates' communications were all exposed, but alas, that won't happen. (Oh so since the completely imaginary possibility exists that Hillary has said things just as shocking as what Trump said on that tape, we should assume that one is no more guilty than the other? Oh yeah, there's some logical thinking for ya.) This, despite the fact that just one of Hillary Clinton's leaked conversations told us all we needed to know about her respect for a woman's life. Tellingly, there was never an apology for this.
At this point Palin links to that completely discredited You Tube video of Hillary supposedly laughing about getting a rapist off during her days as a public defender. It is yet another sad attempt to create a false equivalency, and it fails completely.
It's undeniable that it's only politics allowing characterization of Trump's old comments as more outrageous and offensive than Hillary's comments, as she's caught on tape gleefully defending a child rapist, laughing behind the victim's back, bragging about her disgusting, shameful, totally crude act in defense of a man's worst perpetration of evil on a little girl.
Damn she went all out at the end there. I think she even managed to dredge up some faux outrage.
Palin then used this image to illustrate her post.
In fact I guess we should all have expected that the wife of a man accused of pimping women out for the sexual pleasure of men, and the mother of a man who drunkenly beat his future wife so badly that he was hauled away by the cops, would have little difficulty coming to the defense of a man who has sexually harassed women for over thirty years, and who once raped his own wife in anger over the fact that the procedure he had to reduce his bald spot hurt his big orange head.
For the record Sarah, there is NOTHING supported by the facts in Hillary or Bill Clinton's past that even comes close to the disgusting nature of what's on that tape.
And when you add it to all of the other despicable things we now know about Donald Trump (Twitter rants, fat shaming, lies about his wealth, racism, sexism, links to Putin, etc.) our choice for the next leader of the greatest nation on earth becomes clear.
Though to be fair that actually became clear for most of us on the day that you endorsed him for president.
