Trump's Hypocritical Critics

For a second week, Alec Baldwin did a great Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live.

As Baldwin participated in a sketch mocking Trump for his despicable, vulgar comments about women, I was reminded of some rather inappropriate comments Baldwin made to his daughter a few years ago.

Baldwin called his daughter a pig.

Let's move on.

John McCain has "formally" withdrawn his support of Donald Trump's candidacy.

"I have wanted to support the candidate our party nominated. He was not my choice, but as a past nominee, I thought it important I respect the fact that Donald Trump won a majority of the delegates by the rules our party set," McCain said in a lengthy written statement. "I thought I owed his supporters that deference.

"But Donald Trump’s behavior this week, concluding with the disclosure of his demeaning comments about women and his boasts about sexual assaults, make it impossible to continue to offer even conditional support for his candidacy. (McCain's wife) Cindy, with her strong background in human rights and respect for women fully agrees with me in this."

I remembered McCain being not so respectful to his wife.

There was this incident:

Arnold Schwarzenegger, too, announced he will not support Trump, following the revelation of Trump's lewd remarks.


Schwarzenegger isn't exactly a good role model when it comes to respecting women.

Warning: Explicit language

Asked if he felt "exploited" by women who pursued him because of his physique, Schwarzenegger said, "No, I'd feel used only if I didn't get something out of it. If a girl comes on strong and says, 'I really dig your body and I want to fuck the shit out of you,' I just decide whether or not I like her. If I do take her home, I try to make sure I get just as much out of it as she does. The word exploited therefore wouldn't apply." Schwarzenegger later noted that once outside the gym, he forgets about bodybuilding: "I can look at a chick who's a little out of shape and if she turns me on, I won't hesitate to date her. If she's a good fuck, she can weigh 150 pounds, I don't care."

On the practice of abstaining from sex prior to a competition, Schwarzenegger rejected that approach: "I get laid on purpose. I can't sleep before a competition and I'm up all night, anyway, so instead of staring at the ceiling I figure I might as well find somebody and fuck." In fact, at the 1972 Mr. Olympia contest, "we had girls backstage giving head, then all of us went out and I won. It didn't bother me at all; in fact, I went out there feeling like King Kong," added Schwarzenegger.
So, there's that, and that adultery with the maid, and the baby.

Hillary Clinton engaged in an orchestrated effort to slime the women her husband victimized. Some of the women were victims of Bill's sexual assaults. Others were consenting participants. But, Hillary protected Bill at the expense of the women he used. Hillary worked to control the bimbo eruptions.

Ugly. Very ugly.

In sum, Trump's comments were disgusting. THERE IS NO DEFENDING HIM.

The problem is the hypocrisy of all the judgment and the criticism coming from misogynistic people. Those horrified by Trump's words have done and said some pretty horrifying things themselves.
