President Donald Trump phoned up a supporter whose weight he mocked at a rally, a White House official said, after the president mistook the attendee for a protester.

"That guy's got a serious weight problem," Trump said during a campaign rally in Manchester, New Hampshire, on Thursday night, as a protester was removed from the arena. "Go home. Start exercising. Get him out of here please. Got a bigger problem than I do. Got a bigger problem than all of us."

Asked if the president apologized, the supporter replied, "No, why would he apologize?"

Fair enough.   Maybe I have lost my bearings.  Tell me how "Then there are those fascinating 'power differentials' across women....." can be interpreted as a personal insult.  


P.S.   There is nothing wrong with being a 'movement person'.  I am one.  And as a result I pretend to understand all kinds of things that escape others.  Including (much to my regret) the high tolerance and support that many movement people feel in regards to political violence.   

The high-energy, highly productive  women I referenced earlier?  Yes, they were 'movement people' too.  At least one, still is.

Virtue-signalling feminists have been making up things about female behaviour for a very long time.  FWIW,  I have on numerous occasions worked closely with high energy, productive women who never felt the requirement to virtue signal or invent things about the sociology of women.  

Hierarchy is where you find it.  Everywhere.

‘He gets it’: Evangelicals aren’t turned off by Trump’s first term
Three years ago, Rickey Halbert was torn about whether to vote for President Trump.

On the one hand, he had read about Trump’s extramarital affairs and the women who alleged he had sexually assaulted them. Halbert, a Defense Department employee, didn’t think the candidate matched his moral compass.

Then again, he believed Trump would reduce the number of abortions in the country.

In the end, he said, that convinced him to vote for the president, like most of his fellow evangelicals.

In the years since, he’s watched as Trump restricted abortion access, rolled back gay rights and tried to reduce both legal and illegal immigration. He’s listened as Trump has made racist statements and been accused of rape.

He has reached the same conclusion as so many evangelicals across the country: In 2020, he’ll support the president. This time, it won’t be a hard choice. (...)
