Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, October 13, 2016

First Lady Michelle Obama on Thursday delivered a stinging takedown of Donald Trump's vulgar and sexist comments and spoke about the impact they were having on women everywhere. Campaigning for Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, she said that she couldn't stop thinking about remarks Trump made in 2005, when he bragged about making unwanted sexual advances and being able to grab women "by the ---." The first lady said those words had "shaken me to my core in a way that I couldn't have predicted." With her voice shaking at times, Obama said Trump's comments made it impossible for her to give her normal stump speech. It "would be dishonest and disingenuous to me to move on to the next thing like this was all just a bad dream," she said. "This is not something that we can ignore. It's not something we can just sweep under the rug as just another disturbing footnote in a sad election season."

"This wasn't just locker room banter," she continued. "This was a powerful individual speaking freely and openly about sexually predatory behavior and actually bragging about kissing and groping women." The first lady said she'd felt the impact of Trump's words personally, as had other women. "The shameful comments about our bodies. The disrespect of our ambitions and intellect. The belief that you can do anything you want to a woman," she said. "It is cruel. It is frightening. And the truth is, it hurts. It hurts ... This is not normal. This is not politics as usual. This is disgraceful, it is intolerable. And it doesn't matter what party you belong to. Democrat, Republican or independent, no woman deserves to be treated this way. None of us deserves this kind of abuse."

Michelle Obama just delivered what might have been a defining moment of the presidential campaign

First Lady Michelle Obama starred in a defining moment of the presidential race Thursday, delivering a stinging and emotional condemnation of Donald Trump's behavior toward women that framed the election as no longer about ideology, but human decency.

Obama put aside her standard stump speech to express disgust and outrage with Trump's lewd boasts about forcing himself on women, which multiple women accuse him of acting on. She said Trump's behavior "has shaken me to my core."

How many woman have been raped, murdered or sold into slavery because her genius husband decided to turn Libya into a jihadist free for all?

She never seemed to be very shaken by that so I'll bet that she somehow manages to overcome hearing Trump's idiocy.

Had I known about Bill Clinton's sexual shenanigans I might not have voted for him but then again his opponent was George H.W. Bush who invaded Iraq based on lies about dead babies on bayonets. I'm quite content knowing I voted for the right person. Bill wasn't perfect but he was not Trump. Not even close, Trump bragged about his assaults, publicly, on the radio and TV. Now he denies it but NOBODY believes him.

The story here is not just that Trump is a pig, which we already knew. It is that the Republican nominee for president of the United States appears not to be a rakish lothario but a sexual predator who uses his wealth and power, including his physical strength, to force himself on women.

Michelle's comments are confined to the very words that Donald Trump has said himself that are no longer in dispute. It doesn't matter who visited the White House and Michelle because none of those people are running for president as is Donald Trump. This is about how Trump verbally explained that he takes physical liberties with unsuspecting women and feels entitled to do so without consent because of his celebrity status. He said it. This is what Michelle spoke so emotionally about. There was nothing fake about her or her comments.

" and alleged rapist"

Till a court says different the word "alleged" is pretty important. Any woman can accuse any man of rape but in Clinton's case, they were investigated but prosecutors never decided to prosecute. Do you honestly think such behavior would only have surfaced in Bill Clinton after he was elected governor? Personally, I believe Bill played fast and loose, but I have no reason to believe he ever raped anyone. In America we are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. Bill was guilty of lying about a quasi sexual encounter with Monica Lewinski but that is the only "crime" we know he ever committed and Monica has, of late, made it clear that it was consensual and she was an adult at the time.

You really are oblivious to what Michelle was talking about, aren't you? First, I have no idea whether Michelle is involved in her husband's decisions as POTUS. I've never read where she is, but maybe you know something I don't, but it's irrelevant anyway. Michelle was reacting far beyond the political implications of what Trump said. Women are subjected to far too many men who act and believe just like Donald Trump already admitted that he does. And Donald Trump is not only receiving a pass for his decades long history of offensive behaviors, he's publicly denying and shaming the women who dare speak of what he likely did to them based upon his own words that he does indeed initiate intimate contact with women without their foreknowledge, much less their consent! Donald Trump already confessed to the very acts his accusers claim that he committed, but we are to believe that the women are inventing their claims to hurt him? Why would these disparate, normal women want to hurt Trump positively knowing that he has the money and platform to ridicule and destroy them?

These women only came forward because Trump's mindset got revealed last weekend through the tape and then he lied about what he himself said when asked about it during the debate. He tried to erase his own words through his new words. The ladies, all of whom had personally wondered what they had done themselves that may have triggered Trump's irrational actions towards them, could stay silent no more. This isn't about politics, it's about allowing a self-confessed sexual predator who bragged about molesting unsuspecting women without any consent but for his own feelings of desire and celebrity. It's about all women who have to go through encounters with men like Trump. It's potentially about more than half of the people inside the United States and how the other half treats them during encounters and interactions. A man told us who he was and how he operates and by his own admissions defines himself as a serial molester at the least. This man may become the face of America, an America that now knows who and what he is and the threat he remains to any women he feels entitled to.

This is what Michelle spoke about. Barack made a decision within his job description as POTUS that you claim is constitutionally suspect. Donald Trump is a self-confessed serial predator amongst far too many other powerful men who feel their pleasures justify taking what they want from non-consenting women. The two have little to do with each other.

Tony,

Donald Trump has been a known quantity for decades. I did everything within my power to thwart him during the primary. Nothing that is coming out now is completely unknown. It is planned and scripted. Trump deserves everything he gets. He's a POS. I have no doubt that Mrs. Obama is repulsed by his words and actions. My only point was that she has been witness to some seriously ruthless crap, and has been a participant in it to some degree, thus her 'outrage' over this comes across as contrived, regardless of whether or not she was being genuine.

Barack made a decision within his job description as POTUS that you claim is constitutionally suspect.

Thanks for the clarification.

Do you know how I became aware of that?

Moder8, a liberal DR member posted a thread about it and a few prominent DR liberals chimed in against it for Constitutional reasons.

It was a great thread. Bush did something sort of similar and it dominated the media cycle for a couple of weeks. When Obama did it the story was black-balled. I'm surprised you are aware of what I was alluding to.

#43 | Posted by JeffJ at 2016-10-13 10:12 PM | Reply

I saw the whole debate, it wasn't hard if you look beyond the headlines. I also saw how the White House went to Justice for cover in the same manner Bush did during his administration. As much as I believe in adherence to the Constitution, I also recognize how the public's opinions on national defense have been changed significantly, nominally by the GOP using fear of others to justify the normalization of otherwise unconstitutional actions. I also recognize that if Americans indeed are harmed the right wing will scream treason if a Democrat hasn't done everything beyond reasonable to keep it from happening regardless of the namby-pamby Constitution. The Constitution doesn't stand a chance against the actuality of Americans being harmed when government could have proactively done something to stop it from happening. Ultimately, I know why Obama did it and justified it as he used the right-created GWoT as his ally.

The story wasn't blackballed, it didn't gain traction because the victim was an enemy of the United States and a self-admitted member of the terrorist group we're fighting all over the globe. It was like he declared himself a Nazi operating out of another country during WWII wanting to attack the US. After 9/11 no president is going to turn his or her back on the advances of technology and their use to divine information which protects this nation if it can be done without the majority noticing anything different going on. That's precisely what the people want so that they can feel safe from the "others" when all of us constantly remain under suspicion.

This attitude seems selfish, short sighted and irresponsible. The world is globalized, whether you want it to be or not.

Let's analyze your waste of a response.

This attitude seems selfish, short sighted and irresponsible.

Based on what? The flourishing environment in the Middle East thanks to our intervening? Iran? Iraq? Afghanistan? Syria? Libya? Palestine? Can you name one nation our imperialism has aided?

The world is globalized, whether you want it to be or not.

The world isn't globalized. Wealthy people are attempting to globalize it in order to profit from labor forces in poorer nations.

And the world definitely doesn't need us going into other countries and playing police with our overbloated military.

As for the issue not being your problem...

It isn't. End of story. All your hemming and hawing aside. What's happening in other countries isn't our problem. We don't have a good track record of actually helping other countries. Again. Name a Middle Eastern nation our intervening has helped.

I could say that those with the power to help in such situations have a responsibility to do so,

They don't have the power to help. They don't have any understanding of the situation. It's not their responsibility.

Quite arrogant of you to assume we are superior to other nations. Therefore must intervene in their best interest because they're incapable of knowing what's best for them.

"What an absolutely ridiculous retort Dirk.

If all I had was name calling and fearmongering (and, really, you cite no examples of either), my comments would not require analysis. I believe that is what they call a self retorting retort.

"Based on what? The flourishing environment in the Middle East thanks to our intervening? Iran? Iraq? Afghanistan? Syria? Libya? Palestine? Can you name one nation our imperialism has aided?"

The standard of living is pretty good in the UAE. Even the Saudis love pretty comfortably, repressive laws notwithstanding.

"The world isn't globalized. Wealthy people are attempting to globalize it in order to profit from labor forces in poorer nations."

Of course the world is globalized. Everyone trades with everyone and if that were to suddenly stop, the US economy would disintegrate (as, indeed, would most economies). You cannot put that particular genie back in the lamp.

"It isn't. End of story. All your hemming and hawing aside. What's happening in other countries isn't our problem."

Like I said: cowardice. If you have no problem with genocide and atrocities in other countries, that is nothing else hit your personal moral failing. On a practical level, it never stays someone else's problem: you trade with everyone, after all. And you might find yourselves in the crosshairs.

"We don't have a good track record of actually helping other countries."

Conceded. So do you give up or try to be better?

"Again. Name a Middle Eastern nation our intervening has helped."

Indeed I have named several. Add Palestine to the list. The US has done its part at least to try to foster some sort of peace process, however flawed.

"Quite arrogant of you to assume we are superior to other nations. Therefore must intervene in their best interest because they're incapable of knowing what's best for them."

Don't turn this into a cultural diversity issue. Countries do not decide that what is best for them is to live in poverty and die of epidemics and get barrel bombed and gassed like vermin in the streets.

"Your disregard for other nations sovereignty is amusing."

Nazi Germany was sovereign too. And who says the US need act unilaterally?

"You claim your motivation is to help people in those nations."

I don't claim any such thing. I claim that that's what your motivation SHOULD BE, especially because of what US selfishness has done to the world.

"We're literally killing and displacing more people through our war of terror. Than the rulers of these nations could have ever accomplished."

I find this very unlikely, but I suppose it is possible.

How childish. The US' imperialism blows up in its face (inevitably) and the most mature response some Americans can muster is sour grapes. "We'll take our ball and go home!" How about instead you try to live up to that old claim that the US has something of value to offer this world we all share?
