There is no question Trump hates women. They are pigs, slobs, and dogs a Clinton reminded us Monday when she recounted Trump’s adjectives about them. He hates Rosie O’Donnell, Megyn Kelly, Carly Fiorina, Hillary Clinton, and now Alicia Macado. If he cannot objectify and dominate them such as in beauty contests they are threats to his masculinity and therefore objects of ridicule. After Clinton beat him in the first presidential debate on Monday Trump could have been gracious such as when Obama acknowledged in 2012 that Romney beat him in the first debate.
Instead, he got beaten by a girl, nothing is worse than that. Thus, Trump blames everyone except himself. The debate was unfair, the moderator unfair, the questions unfair, and he himself was a gentleman and did not go far enough in raising the question of Bill Clinton’s marital infidelity and a 20 year old story about Monica Lewinsky. Insult Clinton’s vagina by waving another in her face. Appeal to her insecurities and that of women across the country by claiming you are not good feminists or women because their husbands had affairs. It was your vagina’s fault. And of course he lost because Ms. Machado is fat. All perfectly good reasons to explain his debate performance.
The 2016 presidential debate was the first to have a gender dynamics where there was a woman featured as a presidential candidate. It was Trump’s first one-on-one presidential debate with a woman. Throughout the Republican primaries he out-testosteroned the other male candidates. It was classic Freudian right down to the debate featuring discussion of his penis size. Why he did not whip it and a ruler out like adolescent males do is beyond me, but he effectively did that, more or less declaring he was the best candidate to make America great again because he had the biggest penis. But when it came to Fiorina he froze, criticized her face, or otherwise seemed tout his superiority because he had a penis and she did not.
But with Clinton on Monday it was the first time he had to directly confront a strong vagina on stage He was eye-to-eye with a vagina and he blinked. It was mano o mano–rather mano o vagina on stage–and he lost. It was humiliating to his manhood, castrated in front of 84 million viewers. So of course the only thing he could do was to call a former Ms. Universe fat. Yes, that evened the score with Clinton and women everywhere. For Trump, if you cannot dominate a vagina insult it instead. Clinton’s finest moment on Monday was when she finally became comfortable with gender, laughing off Trump’s insult that she could be blamed for everything. It was at that moment she won the debate, putting Trump down in the worst possible way by being a vagina that beat him.
