After Donald Trump’s misogynistic comments towards Mika Brzezinski, the White House now wants to eliminate former President Obama’s White House Council on Women and Girls, which focuses on empowerment and protection of American women and young girls.
Politico reported on Friday, that the White House Council On Women And Girls was reported to have gone dark the day after the fiasco. The fact that this administration is practically shutting down gender equality offers a reality check for those who continue to say that the President’s tweets weren’t a “real” issue to worry about.
On numerous occasions, the Trump administration holds Trump daughter, Ivanka, up as a shield against criticism that they don’t care about women’s issues. Even though Ivanka Trump claims to be about women’s empowerment, she fails so show a grasp of the meaning of feminism, and indeed tries to use it to cover for her father’s bigotry and misogyny, which in fact, is the complete opposite of what feminism actually stands for.
Keep in mind everyone: Donald Trump is the same sexist man who doesn’t give a shit about women, including his daughter and wife. I mean he told everyone he would date his own daughter. Is anyone really surprised?
Many Republicans and Trump’s Deputy Press Sec. Sarah Huckabee Sanders wondered why we can’t focus on the real agenda’s after Trump’s tweets–it’s because the misogyny on display against Mika, against Rosie, against Megyn, against every powerful, strong, smart, truthful woman who has crossed Trump is also the same reason Republicans crafted a health care bill without one single woman at the table, a fact that shows in their bill as one of the target is..well–WOMEN.
