After two years of tracking Donald’s loathsome behavior, I’ve counted hundreds of instances of moral corruption by Donald and his Administration.
Our patriarchal culture, where power is vested in men, leads to men using sexual harassment and assault as a weapon to control women. As women rightfully take more power from men, this dynamic will slowly change.
December saw 138 examples of horrible behavior, with the biggest increases coming in the categories of sexual harassment/assault, race baiting, splitting up immigrant families, attacking equal protection under the law, and demagoguery.
Donald’s personal moral failures are legion. So are the similar failures of others in his Administration. Over 25% of the 570 examples of appalling behavior I recorded between July 1 and November 30, 2017 exhibited at least one moral failure.
Which should drive Donald from office, the Russia investigation or the women who accuse him of sexual assault?
“Me too” is driving a wave of change across the country. If Donald’s accusers force him from office, that wave will turn into a tsunami.
Women are coming forward in droves to accuse men of sexual harassment and assault. This is a good thing. Men need to do their part too.
During the 2016 campaign, Donald told the nation exactly how horrible a person he is and how terrible a President he would be. In July 2017 there were at least 77 reported examples of Donald or his minions doing the horrible things Donald said he would.
We shouldn’t be surprised by Donald’s willingness to do whatever he can get away with. He’s been doing things because he can, without caring for whether he should, most of his life.
A shared, common understanding of the facts is a prerequisite for any attempts at understanding the perspectives of my fellow Americans.
You don’t have to believe everything Donald Trump does to vote for him, but you do have to be OK with everything he believes, and he believes some really awful stuff.
