I guess none of us can be too surprised that Hillary’s speaking to Planned Parenthood as I type and has very carefully and deliberately suggested it’s “what zip code” you live in which gives you your rights (rights meaning “freebies” these days) or doesn’t.
Translation: the poor and minorities aren’t as taken care of as other demographic areas. (wrong…because upper middle class, probably Whiter communities, don’t rely on PP as much as poor areas, do they).
SO, today she was all about doubling down of the Obama race baiting used through his administration (Beer Summit, etc., Ferguson, Baltimore, etc.)
And Trump gave her ammunition as she quotes his having called women pigs and dogs…fair criticism, I have to admit.
Unfair and a lie, I believe, is that Trump wants to shut down Planned Parenthood altogether. I have never heard that.
“Trump likes to say I’m dealing the women’s card….if he thinks what I’m saying today is dealing the women’s card, DEAL ME IN!” (HUGE applause and cheering, of course!) (Z; she got cleverly around that problem, didn’t she)
She continued….(I paraphrase) ‘Trump echoes other leaders (inferring the Republican party) who have another view of women… the late great Maya Angelou said ‘when someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time’!.…She mentioned his mocking the reporter with disabilities ( which was HORRID, of course, she’s right) and saying a judge can’t do his job because he’s of Mexican heritage ( also too upsetting to too many people, unless you don’t want the Hispanic vote, of course)…
“Together we are taking on the attacks, and together we’re going to unify our country, stop Donald Trump, and break down all the barriers because we’re stronger when every family knows they’re not alone….and we’re going to make history together in November”
The cheers went on f o r e v e r. Of course, that IS a biased bunch at this Planned Parenthood event but the way Hillary’s attacking Trump on what he actually HAS SAID is pretty darned powerful…And will probably win her the election….Unless he can tone it down, NEVER EVER stopping making his points, but TONE DOWN THE CHILDISH THIN SKINNED INSULTS.
He needs to be JUST AS TOUGH on the judge, or JUST AS TOUGH on anybody, but DO not use the ridiculous, ugly, nasty words and names he uses…it’s giving Hillary such great ammunition. …..and then……..
Hillary WILL WIN.
I can’t tell you how many Republicans I know are saying they simply can’t vote for a man with a mouth like that; they agree with much of what he says but it’s not in them to cast a vote for this awful name calling, thin skinned repulsive mouth….that speaks very badly for the election.
Oh, gad…Now FOX is covering a speech of Trump to a faith-based group at this moment, who just said “I happen to be a Presbyterian..” The man of such strong faith that he says ‘TWO’ Corinthians (hilarious…someone shoved a paper in front of him and said ‘tell them that’s your fave verse’ without warning him it’s ‘second’ Corinthians!) . He’s really got the Evangelicals blinded…it’s astonishing.
Trump got this right: “We want to uphold and sanctify the dignity of life”…right after Hillary’s “kill while they’re in the womb” PP speech….He continued “The happiest people are those with THAT GREAT RELIGIOUS FEEL” (what the…?)” “Hillary can’t even say RADICAL ISLAM, that in itself should keep her from being President” I agree with that. His speech was on Teleprompter so it stayed more dignified than his usual blustering but, at the end, he talked about protecting the Christian way in America and I believe ANY advisor might have suggested he would have better said “protect the Judeo Christian values of this country.” Much more inclusive, much more true. Unless you want to lose the few Jewish Republicans there are, anyway?
WHEN will everyone realize that it’s only the terms Trump uses which are turning so many voters away from him? WHEN? Why can’t people realize that nobody doesn’t want him to be HIS TOUGH SELF…just be very TOUGH TOUGH TOUGH without talking about blood coming out of Megyn Kelly, or so many other really horrific terms he’s used? WHEN?? We actually could win ………… I myself think that matters!
