Maurine Dowd has a hilarious op-ed in the NY Times. Here’s just the start:
LET’S stop being so hard on Donald Trump.
He has done us an enormous public service.
After this down-and-dirty battle of the sexes, we will never look at gender in politics the same way.
For centuries, women were seen as unfit to hold public office. Ambition, power and business were the province of men. Unlike gossipy feminine chatter in the parlor, manly discourse was considered impersonal, unemotional, forthright and reasonable.
Every minute of every day, Trump debunks that old “science” when he shows that the gossipy, backbiting, scolding, mercurial, overly emotional, shrewish, menopausal one in this race is not the woman.
Trump is surrounded by a bitchy sewing circle of overweight men who are overwrought at the prospect of a distaff Clinton presidency.
Newt Gingrich, Chris Christie, Roger Ailes and Rudy Giuliani are the Really Desperate Housewives of Trumpworld. They are so shrill that Trump sometimes needs to remind them that he’s the Queen Bee.
There is plenty more to laugh at. Go read it.
Who knew that Trump is really a 13 year old girl?
UPDATE: Here is a sneak preview of the cover of The New Yorker from next week:
Also published on Medium.
IK, very upset that you’re being so disrespectful of 13 year old girls!
Kristof had a great piece in the Times about Trump too. He noted that Trump has recently started saying he is 6’3″ rather than his oft-claimed 6’2″.reason being that at 6’3″ he misses the cutoff on being clinically obese.
Thatguy, I could not find that article. Do you remember how to find it?
It’s not the Times but and article that does covers it.
I AM six foot three inches and i can tell the he is not but its all a mute point since it hinges on the falsehood that he is 236 pounds, maybe one of his legs weigh’s that much but he is definitely heavier than that.
A lot of heavy people in my family and my husband, at about 5′ 10″ weighs in at about 220 and is tiny looking compared to the Trump. I would guess Trump’s weight at more like 260-270. Soon to be son-in-law, 6′ 3″ or maybe 4″, and weighs about 250 or 260 and looks smaller than Trump. I think he is lying about height and weight. But that can’t be true, when has Trump ever lied?
