THE KANSAS CITY DONALD TRUMP 'GRAB THEM BY THE PUSSY' OPEN THREAD!!!
Honestly, I don't know how to feel about this one other than the fact that feigned (self) righteous indignation is just about the most boring of all mass-mediated emotions in this digital age.
Don't get it twisted . . . We respect anger, rage and real emotion . . . But so far what we've seen is nothing more than politicos and media people attempt to use this unfortunate "hot mic" (love that term) mess to their advantage.
TKC quick take:
It's nonsensical to get mad at Donald Trump for saying stupid things given that his entire political career and rise to power is predicated on provocative, nasty, divisive remarks that are either ignored or more often endorsed by his legion of fans. More the the point: This is your guy. Warts and all.
Furthermore . . . Given that this race is closer than anybody wants to admit, the entire episode feels like a manufactured media ploy rather than a massive outpouring of outrage over a dumb remark that nobody would dare defend.
Best of all . . .
RATHER THAN SUBMIT TO POLITICAL TALKING POINTS . . . WE WANT TO SEE WHAT OUR BLOG COMMUNITY THINKS ABOUT THIS TRUMP "GRAB HER BY THE PUSSY" HOT MESS!!!
Even better . . . We like that NO OTHER KANSAS CITY MEDIA OUTLET IS FREE TO REPEAT THE REMARK and has to pussyfoot around the statement.
Is this finally, at long last Donald Trump's Waterloo??? Or just another "distraction" from how much NOBODY really wants to vote for Hillary Clinton.
