Hillary Clinton must have some polling data to indicate that fat, angry women are the key to the election. How else to explain how the top political issue of last week was a pudgy beauty queen complaining that Donald Trump had maybe twenty years ago “body-shamed” her by commenting on her weight?’
Because a $20 Trillion Debt, a deteriorating economy, and a global situation edging toward war are beyond the intellectual capacity of the typical Democrat voter. But, “Donald Trump said mean things about a woman” is at the level they can relate to
And the Hillary camp has not given up on this electoral chew toy. In fact, she even apparently set up a teenage actress at a staged town hall to ask this scripted question.
“Hi Madam Secretary. I’m Brennan and I’m 15 years old. At my school, body image is a really big issue for girls my age. I see with my own eyes the damage Donald Trump does when he talks about women and how they look. As the first female president how would you undo some of that damage and help girls understand that they’re so much more than just what they look like?”
All right, we get it. According to the Democrat left, telling people they could stand to lose a few pounds is a barbarity that’s worse than anything ISIS has ever done to anyone.
But, wait a minute, didn’t our present First Lady make her entire cause about body shaming? Why, yes, I believe she did.
Reducing childhood obesity is both “a moral obligation to our children” and “a patriotic obligation to our country,” Obama said.
So, body-shaming was very, very good when Michelle Obama was doing it, but it’s now very, very bad because Donald Trump may possibly once have done it. Or is it OK to body-shame children, but not pudhy Latina beauty queens. No, wait, it can’t be okay to body shame children, because Hillary’s town hall plant specifically said that it was bad to make “girls” feel bad about their bodies.
And I would be remiss if I didn’t cover Hillary’s scripted answer to the staged question:
You are right — my opponent has just taken this concern to a new level of difficulty and meanness. And, it’s shocking when women are called names and judged solely on the basis of physical attributes.My opponent insulted Miss Universe. I mean, how do you get more acclaimed than that? But, it wasn’t good enough. So we can’t take any of this seriously any more. We need to laugh at it. We need to refute it. We need to ignore it. And we need to stand up to it.
Wait! Wait! Hold on. How can we laugh at it, ignore it, not take it seriously any more, AND stand up to it. Those are mutually contradictory things.
