What if Donald Trump married Megyn Kelly?

2020 US election: Donald Trump's most misogynistic statements

Donald Trump, the President of the United States since November 2016, has been criticized for years for his open sexism and the objectification of women. The list of controversial comments is long. His 2005 saga, Women Easy "by the pussy" touching has probably made the most of the headlines so far.
Would you like a few more delicacies?

"She's definitely ugly!"
"Women have a low IQ"
"Unfortunately Heidi Klum is no longer a 10"
“You have to deny, deny, never admit to having touched a woman immorally. Otherwise you are dead "
“Would I stay with Melania if she were disfigured after an accident? Well, what would her breasts look like? "
“Sexual assault in the army? Well, what did you expect when you put men and women together? "
"Look at that face - would anyone choose this woman?"

But the way he speaks of prominent women like Hillary Clinton, Carly Fiorina, Elizabeth Warren, Heidi Cruz, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez or even his own daughter Ivanka is actually amazing. Here are just a few examples:

Trump over Hillary Clinton

"She doesn't have the looks or the stamina!"

Trump on the journalist Megyn Kelly

"You could see blood coming out of her eyes. Blood was coming out of her all over!"

Trump on actress Rosie O'Donnell

"How did this woman get on TV in the first place? I would fire her. I would look right into her fat, ugly face and say, 'Rosie, you're fired!'"

Trump on his daughter Ivanka Trump

"She's in a really good figure. If she weren't my daughter, I'd probably date her!"

Incidentally, a study recently found that women who hear sexist comments - even if they were not directed at them at all - have less self-confidence and assess their performance and abilities as worse than they are. Donald Trump has been creating a misogynistic environment that affects all women in the population for years. When he criticizes female opponents, he mostly reduces them as a sex object or as someone who deserves no respect or attention.

When Donald Trump talks about women being fragile or weak, it may seem more harmless at first glance than when he talks about their genitals; the words are at least as damaging. He is defending the opinion that women are less valuable than men.

This in a world in which there has only been legal equality for women for a good 40 years. A comparatively short time in which old patterns are far from being overcome, but are at least becoming more fragile. By the way: 54 percent of Americans voted for Hillary Clinton in November 2016, which meant that there was a clear excess of female votes for them. What the whole thing looks like today, four years later in the Donald Trump vs. Joe Biden election campaign, is still unknown at these hours. According to surveys, 59 percent of women are for Biden and only 36 percent for Trump.
