Why is this statement sexist or disrespectful of women?!? There aren't really any words that anyone can label as sexist per se. Trump is married! In fact, Trump has married more than one woman! How can Trump be sexist? There are even women who support Trump! Why would anyone think Trump is sexist?

Must be politically motivated. TDS. Can't possibly be that Trump is ACTUALLY sexist. Or racist, or xenophobic, or not too smart or anything but a good old boy American. Sheesh! Where's my MAGA hat?
I believe he treats women with only one thought in mind. And that thought isn't how intelligent or now capable they are. It's more how much they're willing to put out either willingly or against their will. He has very little respect for women as he's demonstrated, especially if they're unattractive women.

President Donald on Thursday disavowed the “send her back” chant that broke out at his rally on Wednesday night.

"I was not happy with it. I disagree with it,” Trump said to reporters about the chant, which began after the president again went after Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) as part of his ongoing attack on four progressive freshman congresswomen.

That's not being sexist either, and women have stated worse about what they can get from men and what men would allow them to get away with.

And here you go...Trump 'disavows' (not a word HE would ever use).....the chant from the rally.

Of course his folks told him -- this is not what the President of the USA would support.

I have not heard that about Omar, but I'll research it. Interesting...


But to the bolded: So does Trump. Why is his change OK, but hers is not?

Trump has been on a 3-year tirade about what a "disaster" our country is. He has been steady saying we are not great, that we are a joke, and only he can fix it. And he goes on foreign soil and sides with murderous dictators over our own Public Servants. How is that acceptable to you, but not OK if someone else has a different view.

It saddens me to say this, but I think the OP articulated perfectly what is going on. I've had a hard time finding the words for it, but he/she nailed it. I wish with every ounce of my heart that what was posted in the OP was not true, but sadly, it is.

(My issue is not that they don't agree with Omar, AOC, Obama, Hillary, Bernie, or whomever. It's how these people have been treated. I had a lot more respect for the GOP when they represented American and Conservative values. Today they represent neither.)

Well he had to disavow it -- it was ridiculous.

The fact he didn't respond last night when they chanted it -- and it took someone in his office to tell him it wasn't right is pretty disgusting don't you think.

Here's where Trump fans will show their true colors.

First they will defend the chant.
Then they will defend Trump who decides the next day to disavow it......and some how blame TDS & the media for the whole incident.

Trump has mocked Americans for getting captured defending our rights, while he sat out with fake bone-spurs. SEND HIM AWAY.

What treason? Provide her exact crime and her exact words. Your post is so ridiculous.
