Some editorials accuse Trump of being sexist but some of his staff members say he supports women's rights. What do you think?

A wise man need use few words. Well done.
so, are you calling the tea party stupid? they certainly did something about obama....blocked him at every pass, protested and showed their opposition. expect the same.
Leslie give it a break he said you can't do anything about him being president - your side wants to stop the inauguration, force the electors to disregard their duty,declare the election illegitimate & basically start a coup. GROW UP.
Gustavo had the right view. You just keep feeding us fish, red herrings, I hate red herrings. I am for Trump not the Tea Party or the Republicans.
sorry, you voted trump, you get tea party and republicans, hes not a king. and nobody is stopping the inauguration,i just find it interesting you think it would have been wise for the tea party to accept obama. i dont remember them,or you doing that.
Leslie, U have Literally hit an all time low. Tell us U didn't just print the most brainless, outrageous, asinine stupidity ever printed. Un-friggan-real. Do you have no pride, no class, no grey matter? U've gone way too far.way off the edge
Above comment in response to Leslie's God comment!! Les I suggested B4 & I'll say it again. Take a break and give it a rest. U're off the wall. UR truly obsessed & incensed & pathetic. Calm down and breathe..
funny, thats what a lot of people are saying to prez trump...think he'll listen?
I don't know if DT will "Listen."U should be able 2 C in that crystal ball of URS If HE will B his own undoing & Poof! Bah Bye DT!.Then it will B happy days & champagne 4 Leslie & the Libs (good name 4 a Rock Band!) My focus is the whole
i dont drink. donuts n coffee to celebrate the end of madness. it'll do. but if we get pence, its really no better. we need a whole new election, since this one was as dirty as trumps business dealings.
"as long as you live, you'll never see a photograph of 7 women signing legislation about what men can do with their reproductive organs"--martin belam. global gag rule...he did it. heritage foundation picking supreme court justice...what more u need?
Glenda/ Sharon/ Leslie- I am impressed that other women are willing to brave the violent liberal hate mongers and speak their mind about our new President. He says and acts like he supports "equal rights" for all versus "extra rights" for only some
Any woman who would support a greedy,racist,misogynist like Trump is deserving of the second class citizenship women have enjoyed for 250 years here in the USA. Without a doubt, they R suffering from Stockholm Syndrome. The "Stepford Wives" R 4real.
trump likes beautiful women like charms on a bracelet. He likes little girls for pleasure and all the others he considers pigs.
The Bible says "God formed man from the dust of the ground, breathed into him the breath of life, and man became a living soul." That's good enough definition of when life begins for me. It also makes all forms of birth control equally good or bad.
funny, chinese mythology has that same man from mud story too, but they dont carry it out like we do. they actually prevented birth as a form of public policy...and many countrys in europe wouldnt dare accuse women of "murdering babies in the womb"
Cochran as a theologian you embarrass your self again, as always https://www.biblebelievers.com/jmelton/abortion.ht... Who do you think your kidding?You don;t believe anything in the Bible unless you can twist it to mean what you do believe.
And he made women from a Rib, not equal, I guess there was a shortage of dirt. lol
wait, women are not equal?
Leslie, it's not gonna happen. We will never see eye to eye w/ Reps. Our personalities are just too different. And that's ok. Individuality is still a good thing. I have had quite a few bad experiences with Republicans, living in a military community
God didn't create Adam and Eve the same, and that is the definition of NOT Equal. And they were not equal in the US constitution along with Blacks.
I know I'm late, sorry.
God is fine with abortion.
Numbers 5:21-21, 27-28
Not late, just stupid and deceptive attributing false meaning to scripture taken out of context. No better example of your evil intentions and/or ignorance than to say what you said, I feel sorry for you.
eric dieker, are you around? tazerbro needs some serious talking to. this is getting so far beyond civil as to be abusive.
Do babies breath in the womb?
I believe it is when the baby takes its first breath outside the womb is when God breaths life into him/her
Hey precious Shyron...I have a question. Have we humans ever, in all our lives, ever known anything that is NOT living at this precise moment in time, to grow? I confess, without a single doubt that I have not. You? Love ya. P
i really wonder what all these women-bashers think about spontaneous abortion (miscarriage).is god "murdering babies in the womb"?if so, how can you worship that, but condemn women?i have been pregnant 3 times.its potential life.not written in stone
God's not fine with abortion. The scripture you listed was a test for adultery. We are commanded not to kill. Eve made from Adam's rib: so that man holds woman close to his heart, not his feet for stomping on.
if god is not fine with abortion, how do you explain miscarriage? either god makes mistakes, or you know better than god.
i heard him loud and clear. "i'm pro life. i will appoint a pro life judge. pro life christians will be very happy". "yes, i believe there should be some form of punishment for women who have abortion". what did you hear?
So true, all this 'blow up the White House" protests, obstructionist politics, etc. ... it is only going to get the Socialist, Sharia Law, Globalist Democrat Party not a win in 2018 or 2020 it is going to net them even more losses than 2014 and 16
blow up the white house....where are you getting that??
have you read what bannon says about women??...if he advises trump we'll be back to founding dad days.
they will also begin the selling off of our beautiful parks and public lands for mining...as koch bros have been so involved in doing on indian reservations...keystone and standing rock will inevitably be a go. this is death of decency. no excuses.
Amber, LM, I always wonder how people like you feel about Hillary Clinton's husband? Where were you when he was paying off sexual assault victims, dodging rape accusations, abusing interns. Where were the woman protests against him?
reading about karl rove and kenneth starr-that huge right wing org aligned against the clintons. nothing they say has been believable since. difference here, it was trumps own words, still you excuse. how do you feel about the new church of america?
LM, what the women who were raped and sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton said? Are you okay with Hillary attacking the victims of her husbands sexual assaults? Does a woman's politics have to be right before you're upset with her sexual assault?
sorry, i answered yours. you did not answer mine. paul ryan says they are a pro life house. what do you think about the new church of america?
RMN, Bill Clinton does not define who Hillary was/is. Monica was hired by the conservatives to bring Clinton down. and like Monica, Paula Jones went to him, she wanted and got a nose job.
Bill Clinton was his own worst enemy -- there was no "plant" to topple him, he did it all by himself. If you're going to judge people by their sexual behavior, judge everyone on the same playing field.....
your field? so we believe the women, right? including those who have accused trump.
the right to be secure in our person.
“Women were created from the rib of man to be beside him, not from his head to top him, nor from his feet to be trampled by him, but from under his arm to be protected by him, near to his heart to be loved by him.”
Hxprof, lol Good luck making any sense of those two comments. Basically to a liberal it means the right to use your money (through taxes) to keep her from getting pregnant & if she does the right to use your money again to murder her baby.
what about her money through her taxes? you are saying she can pay taxes, but has no right to benefit from them.
To begin with most people getting abortions don't even pay taxes, they are on welfare. Can't you conjure up a better excuse? You have no concept of right and wrong.69 percent of women who have abortions are economically disadvantaged.
doesnt matter to me if shes poor or rich. same rights apply. supreme court settled it. its a medical procedure guarenteed by the constitution, which overides your bible. and if my taxes are going to help her, thats great by me. her life, not yours.
The point isn't her poverty, as usual you conflate issues to avoid admitting you are wrong. The point was most women who get abortions don't pay taxes which you claimed they do. Wrong, wrong, wrong as always you are wrong.
most women who get abortions dont pay taxes? how would you know that? who told you, pence?
and it doesnt matter. taxes are a community pool. we all pay for things we dont like, like emergency room care for gunshot victims. like viagra. like war. AND?
Are U a man? If so, I'll bet U know UR rights 2 the letter.WOmen have the same rights! Why wouldn't we? Do U have a common sense realistic reason? (I do NOT believe in abortion) I also don't believe I have the right 2 dictate to other women!!
That is no different than saying , "I don't have the right to dictate to a serial killer who they can kill. " It is simply not possible to be against murder and then accept someone's "right" to commit murder. I will show you the way to Ixtlan.
Ronnie..I don't give "permission" nor can I forbid. I don't have that power..do U? I choose 4 myself. Why & how could I choose 4 U or others? If they don't listen to most powerful, they won't listen to me OR U! I'm realistic.
Your question sidesteps the issue. It's not a matter of having the authority to grant someone permission. If we believe something is wrong then we stand against it. U seek to appease your morality while not offending the world.
Ronnie. Yes, I AM sidestepping~~feeling the right 2 dictate what others may or may not do~what choice they MUST make 2 comply w/ what I believe.YES, I am anti-abortion."IF" I was asked 4 permission, I would NOT give it. Now what? U don't C my point?
Of course I see your point. I also eat meat and I was raised on a farm. But I understand that killing animals is also murder. I willing participate in a brutal industry. It is my own hypocrisy that I struggle with. It is a great burden.to carry.
just to be clear...no tax dollars are allowed to pay for abortions NOW,already.hyde amendment,1973.this church of america wants to defund planned parenthood,even tho abortions are not funded by taxes.they want birth control out of insurance WE pay 4!
Well, now I don't C Ur point. I am not responsible 4 the choices & actions of others.Using UR example: I don't perform abortions nor do I have power 2 vote aye or nay on laws.Thus,I truly don't feel the burden U speak of in UR scenario.
nor will i. im 2 old to get pregnant, or use birth control. but i know plenty who are, and do. and i know how important it is that woman have the ability to get birth control, and the option for abortion. we are now ruled by people will take it away.
It is interesting feminists are silent about female Trump supporters hit with pepper spray on camera by liberal men. It is as if women's rights only apply to liberal women, not conservatives or Muslim women in poor nations.
do you think your comment is bringing people together?
who said 69% of women have abortions are economically disadvantaged. All women are economically disadvantaged. & rich women who have abortions U will not hear about.
No man has a right to dictate to a woman whether she can have an abortion or no
Women's rights: Just the opposite of what most Judaeo-Christian males think we should have. Glad I'm married to a Native American.
he just signed an executive order moving forward with a pipeline project in which he owns stock. a project which the tribes have called an act of war. he just declared it. guess who majority of people here are with? not your caligula. it is war.
how can he root out corruption when he is in cahoots with the worst of the worst and his corruption roots are deeper than most.
What "extra" rights are you speaking of? Last I checked women minorities & LGBT just want the same rights afforded to white men. As a LGBT female I just to be paid the same as men in the same position & marry who I love. Not extra, but equa
i think they mean breathing.
Are you happy about paying for the wall?
Speak 4 yourself Ralph. Compared to Trump I am a sex God. I'm not a billionaire, and women still find me irresistible. Why? Because I am not a pig, and I treat women with respect.
hes already started. and just wait til he picks supreme court justice. if hes only playing a republican on tv, those policies hurt real people just the same.
Leslie, I'm afraid for a lot of these issues, we just have to wait and see. If it gets bad enough....well, like the new Arcade Fire/Mavis Staples song says, "We give you Power, We can take it away."
sorry, we already saw. it was called the bush adm. were back. just what so many feared. see, it doesnt matter if its bush, romney, or trump: if you repub, you must defer to religion. and that means blindness to human rights. ideology rules...theirs
I wish you were right about this but his behavior during the campaign showed something completely different. You probably don't fall into any of those categories that Trump demeaned during his campaign, but they affect some people very strongly.
house just made it illegal for women to access abortion from insurance they pay for. how is this different than sharia? and when do we call trump tyrant for using eo"s?
I forgot to mention the huge hike in healthcare costs, and all those companies that were planning to close and ship jobs overseas.
trump is the one appointing the next justice. ryan said the house was pro life. 33 states have anti abortion gvrs....and yet 3.2 million americans came out to tell them keep your gvt off our bodies...somehow, this picture doesnt mesh. something wrong
So i guess you voted for Hillary?Trump spent about half of what Clinton did on his way to the presidency. Isn't she twice as bad then? Isn't Hillary's answer twice as much money? Oh& yeah she is for women, except those her husband raped.
Kashekia, I unfortunately have to agree with " Dont Taze me Bro". I checked his facts and they are correct.
The media and liberal special interest groups have made Trump look like a misogynist but I have yet to see or hear any real proof.
Amazing answer and I commend you for your bravery in posting it.
Jmann. You are one, brave, fair, honest, rational, wise, intelligent woman! Cheers! I love it!....Proud to be a woman.
A brilliant, well articulated and thought out comment. I applaud your contribution and hope to see more from you.
i COULD GIVE YOU A HUGE BEAR HUG!

your guys and gals just released their replacement aca bill.they defund all of planned parenthood across the usa.if you dont consider that sexists, ill GIVE you christies bridge! even tho men use it too, we all know who this hurts.poor women n kids
Yea...He's slap a guy on the ass just like he does a woman....GUARANTEED!!!
"Many people say he is sexist because it was just a character attack widely used on him." .... ARE YOU DELUSIONAL!?! He admitted on tape to sexually assaulting a woman!
Nothing promising in your future. Sorry to have to be the one to tell you. You seem to have trouble connecting the big dots. Namely: Jeffrey Epstein, who is Trumps billionaire pedophile friend.
Can anyone answer my questions? And why is abortion a women's right?
your opinions are skewered. you dont start from a basis in reality. you live in brad-land. hillary is a life-long worker in public service, not some queen demanding power. and abortion is my right, because i am the one who has to make the sacrifices.
Brad, it is very true that teaching was a lower paid profession for years in the 20th Century because most teachers were women. Same for secretarial, nursing and waiting tables. Some women writers took men's names to get published.
My question was about Abortion being a women's right??
People should be paid according to the work they do not because of their gender.
It’s not who know, it’s what you know about who you know.
Shyron, I agree and unfortunately many times it is who you know.
"is most likely all woman" .... LMFAO that was classic.
Brad, you said your question was about abortion being a woman's right. Couldn't prove it by me. It took about 35 lines to ask why a woman has a right to an abortion. But that's typical Trump thinking. Hide the issue.
In addition, the interest of the state increases in the 2nd and 3rd trimester
said by someone who will never get pregnant....let me know when you want gubmint in charge of your prostate.
Can't get more insane than likening a baby to a prostate gland - there is something really wrong with that, oh I'm sorry, I forgot, I'm talking to someone who approves of murdering babies even at full term as they are being born.
so does benjamin netanyahu. you still loooove him, dont you? hypocritical attitude. people dont really hate abortion, they hate american women.
all the christians here support the state of israel, which allows and pays for abortions. so, its really not abortion theyre against at all, or theyd be against israel as well.
Once again, where are women's rights today, right now?
some states you cannot get abortions anymore. the church/state has set up road blocks as to make it impossible. women are imprisoned for miscarriage. coat hanger abortions are back. women are less safe, less respected, less free.
If someone tries to murder you with a gun and shoots himself who is going to be sympathetic to the murderer? If that's how pregnant women were thinking about coat hanger abortions maybe they wouldn't do it.
What about women who use birth control but it fails? Or women who are raped? Just "oops, too bad, so sad"?
Do you listen to yourself?Because your birth control doesn't work it's ok to commit murder?simply because pregnancy is an inconvenience?http://tinseltownmom.com/10-celebrities-who-were-c... adoption
The point is....the women pay for it either way. Therefore abstinence is key. The guy leaves, you are on welfare.....Most men just make you another statistic. Maybe it does pay to be a lesbian....LOL
Thing is not everyone would agree that aborting a cluster of cells is "murder". But alright, say you have it your way. No more abortions. Who's caring for the extra 40-50 million kids born every year?
I predict there will be more jumping on the LGTB bandwagon....Then we will really have riots.
Haha! That's an excellent point.
Thank you!! LOL I didn't get a social work degree for nothing.....
Still no one is telling me where is the line today? How can you tell where Trump will take it if you don't define where it is today after 8 years of Obama.In fact, where was the line when Obama took it from GW Bush?
More women than men go to college....Why don't you start there?
Sorry Bro. I'm interested in fewer abortions not overturning RvW. Focus on preventing pregnancy, not abortion. Do the 1st and you've done the 2nd. Contraception in the hands, and other places, of anyone, any age, no parental consent=fewer abortions.
Chris..YES! Amen. Education, FREE Birth control. Respect 4 all life. When is it LIFE? Only "living things" grow. Does a fetus begin to "grow" Day 1 & continue? Concentration on educ, BC & the alternative of adoption.
And you DO NOT have the right to tell a woman what to do with her body. That is her decision alone.
UR correct, Amber! I don't have the right 2 tell any1 what 2 do w/ their body..which is why I Do NOT tell anyone what 2 do w/ their body. read ALL my comments B4 U snap like a child w/ tantrum. Read my exchange w/ Ronnie." While reading, grow up.
you just dont get it, do you? the gvt you elected IS telling women what they can and cant do with their bodies. "we are pro-life". that means anti abortion, anti birth control, and they think they have perfect right to tell us what to do. thanks!
You are right
i just checked twitter....holy cow. know what russia has on trump? orgies w underage girls and drugs. apparently, he likes golden showers. should've known, people!...he and melania talked about a threesome w howard stern. hes a perv!
I think he was into "orgies" long before he even met Putin.
Even possible that this could be the other way around...
Just saying... : )
i dont care that hes a perv...i care that hes beholden to putin. russians lent him money when no one else would...no word of condemnation about russia's actions in allepo. "what do you want, vlad?jus let me know"...that kind of thing. rape? shhhhhhh
I'm not actually worried that much about his bromance with Putin. In a way it might be beneficial. At least it's better to have no conflict with Russia then another Cold War.
But yes it can be frustrating for time to time seeing the two holding *****
Leslie.No,not holy cow! More like Unholy Bull! "underage, golden showers"Please! If UR into this shit, buy a smut mag off local market racks.What total bunk! U sure as hell don't believe the trash about BO being gay & Michele being a tranny! Do U
UR tolerated bcuz ur entertaining Leslie, but really~~sometimes U take it way way too far! Try getting real please. Enough is enough. Should we believe Pizzagate..huh Leslie? Is UR precious girl a nasty Pervert? Stop the Porn Presses....OK??
maybe you didnt read what i said next.and who is it that "tolerates" here on hp?is that why certain people are banned? they upset someone?read on:i am more concerned about his ties to putin,and appalled that people of the trump persuasion are not.
That excludes me..cuz I'm not of a Trump persuasion.(4 the 800th time!) I'm of the anti-HRC (at all costs) stance.We all have that damned right 2 choice! WHO the hell cares what HP mods ban? I don't! Y do U?? They don't run our lives! Thank god!
so, its your clique then, that decides who is tolerated? or dont you know how arrogant that sounds? and there were two viable candidates here. if you voted trump, you elected trump. in fact, my fav sign of march was "white women elected trump" ownit
What a great role model for the Stepford Wives who voted for Trump.
Man I wish they had mikes and cell phones back in John Kennedy's days, now his escapades and efforts were LEGENDARY ... didn't make the news back then, but the things he said and did would make that laughable tripe in comparison.
Ken, I am also confident that a river polluted with oil is not a big concern for U as long as someone is making money with the oil or the clean up. Just another reason I don't refer to myself as an American.
I just wish all those who don't consider themselves American, including the illegals that come here and waive the Mexican or Muslim flag while stomping on the American flag, would go find the country that they consider their own, theywon't be missed.
KenB, This is our country and our continent. It belongs to the Mapuche, The Aniyunwiya, The Mexica, the Haudenosuanee, and many more Indigenous nations. A squatter can rape, murder, and steal, but can never claim ownership.
Ronnie, it belongs to those who take it, that has been the way the world has always worked, and will continue to work until long after we are dead. Rome once controlled a third of the world, now it controls nothing, same for NA tribes, that's realit
If that were true there would be no one in prison for robbing banks, or stealing anything. Your excuse is at best childish and naive. The American people have accepted theft when to their advantage, and condemn it when it is not. Hypocrisy.
I have only one thing to say.....I WANT that adorable, precious baby!! OMG! Way too cute, directly into "Irresistible!!" I want to reach into the screen and tickle her/him!! Do you know this baby??
hp alert!! --->right wingers needed to chastize the above post for being divisive, insulting and not trying in the least to respect others of the opposing side....c'mon, pretend he's me or ap...let him have it! "the lecture" <--
Great post Larry ! Just ignore Leslie, she's too busy always parroting leftists talking points that one wonders if she can even think for herself.
hey, im only looking for fairness. if im lectured about being civil, others should be too. otherwise, it looks like im supposed to play nice, while others can insult to their hearts content. as if tea party never happened, dems supposed to melt.nyet!
Leslie, I'm with u.Everyone has the right to make a fool of themselves on HP and someone has to tell them,call them out when they do,because it is never obvious to us by the repeated shameless nonsense&make believe u,I mean they,spew here.
God is not hateful like those that are playing God in this conversation. Leave God to do his job in judging others. This isn't your job to take.
Hear that Leslie? quit playing God and being so hateful..
I was talking to you to.....
"left-wing nut haters spewing venom" did not come from me.nor did "shameful, insecure,unsecure democratic party". perhaps your bible doesnt consider "shameless nonsense and make believe" 2be judgemental or hateful.sometimes i wonder,have you read it?
Yes, I have read it. I don't agree with it either. However, I have lived in a military community, and they won't give up their opinion, and I won't give up mine. Therefore, what's the point?
i was talking to tazer bro! im on your side pathways!
I know Leslie. I am just saying, "they r very hard headed, & not very open minded." If you have the stamina for this, then I say, "go for it." However, I don't. I have medical issues, & I care about my own well being. Just take care of you
When you get right down to it anything the liberals fight for is a fraud designed to take your money& enlarge government. Women's rights (really right to murder your baby), global warming (a ruse), minorities (only to get their vote) ...
what makes you think its only your money? we women work and pay taxes...but know who doesnt? the church.why is an entity that pays no taxes telling me i cant utilize the taxes i pay? and you are wrong. trump wants to end abortion rights, as does gop
Leslie or any of the women.
Can you tell us where the line in the sand is today, after 8 years of Obama? Simple question simple Answer??
obama is not the problem. republicans are. house, senate, states, and soon supreme court. obama is a feminist, i have no problem with him at all.and democratic party platform is decision is woman's to make. they trust women...and respect.
Obama is history, deal with it. As the great HRC said, "What difference does it make"?
I think you have forgotten what is the question here? Will Trump take the USA backward or forward with women's rights? Where is the line now?
global gag rule. he crossed it. its done. back we go....wait til we are forced to have guns and god in schools. but only their god, mind you. and forget about common sense gun safety...oh no. open carry, starting in kindergarden! bush 4. on steroids.
Read about the Muslim migrant rape crisis in the EU. Ending the importation of men from a true rape culture protects women, whereas the EU is arresting critics of the rapists' culture instead.
TW, Brock Turner (white) only did 6 months 4 rapimg unconscious woman. Kraigen Grooms (white) pleaded guilty to raping a girl under the age of 2. Video of the rape was posted on the internet. He got 10 yr.sus.sentence. White rapists R biggest threat.
this is not about rape, tw. it is about forbidding women to talk about abortion, which has been done since the beginning of time...long before your male gods showed up to suppress us. we wont have it! if your lives are that empty, learn how to knit.
