Sexism is a constant presence in the discourse surrounding Hillary Clinton’s historic nomination, and it has reared its ugly and uninformed head once again. This time, during Rudy Giuliani’s incredibly offensive interview on ABC’s This Week earlier today.
Giuliani has already made questionable statements throughout this election cycle, going up to bat for Trump by conveniently forgetting about 9/11 (???) and stirring up rumors regarding Hillary’s health. Now, Giuliani is shamelessly attempting to spin Donald Trump’s exposed tax records — proving that he likely hasn’t paid federal income taxes in nearly two decades — by describing Trump’s corrupt behavior as a demonstration of his brilliance in business. Lol, nice try.
And I quote:
Really… that’s the only thing she has ever done? I’m actually speechless — Giuliani back at it again with the convenient memory loss.
Also, quick reminder that all of those undocumented immigrants that Trump labels as “rapists” and “murderers,” claiming they are destroying our nation, pay more taxes than this “economic genius.”
It is despicable that we have to write about a real life Presidential candidate’s political adviser making such a sexist comment. This is why it’s so important that we fight back with our vote — so make sure you’re registered!
