Time Magazine's "Person of the Year." It's Not Trump But It's His Victims.
Donald Trump doesn't have to feel left out by Time magazine's choice of "person of the year." After all he's been very close to several of them - touching, fondling, groping-close.
This year's award went to "the silence breakers," women who have risked so much to come forward and speak out against the men who sexually abused them. By last count that would include 16 women who have leveled some pretty nasty accusations against the Mango Mussolini who boasted of his prowess at sexually abusing women and playing a Peeping Tom with you beauty pageant contestants in their dressing rooms.
There's a yuuge, Donald-sized difference between Trump and most of the other guys who have been brought down as sexual offenders in recent months. One difference is that Trump denies that he ever did the dastardly things he's been accused of. The other difference is that he's been recorded, on an Access Hollywood tape and on the Howard Stern show, boasting of doing the very sorts of things he so indignantly denies doing.
That's the difference between Republicans and Democrats. The Dems move quickly to clean house. They got Conyers to resign and now they're after Al Franken. The Republicans, by contrast, have an open door policy when it comes to their sexual predators whether it's the prowler, Roy Moore, or the groper, Donald Trump. And those born again evangelicals all dutifully line up to kiss their asses. Ain't life grand?
