Donald Trump Jr. has gone on the record stating that women should not exist in the places that men go, including the workforce. Why should the world be a men’s only club? Because the women may claim harassment, of course.
Earth to Trump and Trump Jr.! A woman needs to actually be harassed to claim harassment. If you cannot share a space with women without harassing them, you have a major problem. With this sexist claim, Trump Jr. is admitting that he cannot co-exist with women without molesting them. Like father, like son.
This openly sexist clan has hit low after low, now stretching their misogyny to attempt to bar women from the workforce. Not surprising, considering their followers tried to take the vote away from women, just days ago. Where are women “allowed” to work, that predators like Trump and Trump Jr. won’t be able to access? Kindergarden.
Trump Jr. rants: “I’m of that mindset — and I’ll get into trouble, I’m sure I’ll get myself in trouble one of these days,” Jr. began, “if you can’t handle some of the basic stuff that’s become a problem in the workforce today, then you don’t belong in the workforce. Like, you should go maybe teach kindergarten. I think it’s a respectable position.”
He then continues to say women are not able to negotiate deals, again because he might sexually harass them. “You can’t be negotiating billion-dollar deals if you can’t handle, like, you know,” leaving “you know” open. “But listen — there’s a place where you have to draw the line — but today the stuff you get in trouble for.”
Trump Jr. then pulls the victim-playing card, acting as though all women who have been sexually assaulted are actually just going with it. The host of the radio show prompts, “Wouldn’t it be funny if we showed tits and then Donald sued?”
He responds with, “I’d feel harassed!” –mocking harassment. “This is my get rich quick scheme. I’m now suing you guys because I feel uncomfortable.” Trump Jr. doesn’t stop there, continuing, “And by the way, that’s what happens in the world. I can play along, I can be fine, and then I can decide randomly — ‘uh oh, you now have crossed the line, even though I’ve been going with it.’”
Exactly Trump Jr., all the women who you have been harassing for years have just wanted you all along. I guess that’s how sexual predators sleep at night.
