Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, April 17, 2019

During a Sunday stop on the book tour for her hugely popular memoir, former First Lady Michelle Obama jokingly compared President Donald Trump‘s administration to the parenting style of a "divorced dad." CNN anchor Dana Bash called it "remarkably unwoke," and some divorced fathers have taken umbrage at the remark.

(Sorry for posting an article, from "People", but the trashiness of her remark makes it appropriate.

Interesting. Did you know that we now imprison people who legally come into America indefinitely? I'd say that's an injustice. Michelle's crappy speech is something that we will survive with only 400 tweets from POTUS divorced dad and another 4 months of con frothing-at-the-mouth outrage.

The whole Russia hacking thing was embarrassing for the Left and you are still using it.

"YEAH!!! BUT TRUMP!!!!"

Do you know what misandry is? It's the hatred of men. Do you think that's ok?

Michelle is coming up on Joe Biden's record for the most gaffes.

Maybe she was joking. You know like Trump jokes about things like loving Wikileaks.

I think JORDY will tell you that Donald is the only one who gets to joke.

Neither one approaches Donald Trump's record.

Jeez, JORDY. Every other thing the man says is stupid, while the other half is mean.

Imagine the howls of outrage from the Left if a man "joked" about the parenting skills of divorced women.

Or maybe it was just coffee klatch talk. You know the female equivalent of locker room talk.

Not a cool thing to say in light of all the good divorced dads out there. Appropriate for the not so good ones. She should have compared Trump to one of those not so good divorced dads who don't do such a good job weekend parenting. And, yes, there are some not so good divorced moms as well. My guess is she will be apologizing for her comment soon. Anyway, it's stupid to call Michelle a misandrist when she has been married for over 25 year

Donald Trump claims "joke" every time his ass in in a crack.

This is just another "issue" where you have to room to talk.

What she should have said is that as far as divorced dads go, Trump is no Mrs. Doubtfire.

Zed,

What does Donald Trump have to do with the subject of this thread?

#14 | Posted by JeffJ at 2019-04-17 12:57 PM | Reply

It was a pretty crappy analogy on the part of Mrs. Obama, rife with lefty undertones that Dads (and men in general) suck.

At the end of the day, who cares though?

This is trivial. Nulli is right to point out the glaring hypocrisy with a role reversal here, but that's about as far as I am going to go with this.

Jordy is probably a dead beat dad who has years of backlogged child support to pay.

He wears a short sleeve dress shirt with a tie. Polyester pants, too.
Belt and shoe color never match.
He's also the type of douche that grabs a ton of shrimp off the tray at the party.

On the contrary. Been married once. Still married after 35 years. Three children, all very successful and never divorsed.
Any questions?

Instead of being ashamed of Michelle's misandry, you attack me. Why are you even here?

#18 a clip on tie. And he grabs the shrimp with his bare hands while loudly chilling on the celery garnish.

20 I'd ask the same of you, because I sure as hell know it's not because you care about the identity politics.

And by successful you mean head of the fry line, burger line and soda machines? And all on the same shift!

Why don't divorced fathers stop perpetuating a bad stereotype?

I have no idea what a Dana Bash is, but it clearly thrives off misplaced outrage.

She just assumed his gender. That's not intersectional.
