A Young Millennial Woman For Trump

As a young woman, I will vote for Donald J. Trump for president because he and his wife Melania have proven themselves presidential in ways Hillary and Bill Clinton failed.

First things first: a vote for Donald Trump is a vote against Hillary. You need not personally admire Trump in order to consider him the best option for president in 2016, and thus to vote your conscience.

“Trump recorded having extremely lewd conversation about women in 2005!” the Washington Post declared last Friday—sharing a three-minute clip wherein Trump can be heard making loutish, locker-room-style comments about the physical appearance of TV personality Nancy O’Dell and soap opera actress Adrianne Zucker.

Trump immediately posted a video apology for his words of 11 years ago—expressing that he is deeply “embarrassed and ashamed”—a sign of sincere sorrow, as he rarely makes a public confession.

Losers of the 2008, 2012 and 2016 presidential elections—John McCain, Mitt Romney, Paul Ryan and John Kasich respectively—pounced on the video leak as an opportunity to ramp up the losing behavior they’ve been engaging in all throughout the 2016 race: refusing to support the GOP nominee.

“The Republicans, you’ve got to remember, have been running for a long time. The reason they don’t win is because they don’t stick together,” Trump reminded voters. “They’re not going to make me quit.”

I watched the Washington Post tape many times. While it’s certainly disappointing to hear Trump flippantly discuss female body parts—it’s also clear that he means his comments as a man-to-man joke. Unlike Bill Clinton, Trump never takes actions to “live up to” his bravado. For example, in the video, he tells TV personality Billy Bush: “I’ve gotta use some Tic Tacs in case I start kissing her [as soon as I meet Zucker].” But, when Trump actually meets her, he behaves formally and professionally. Trump shakes Zucker’s hand and only briefly hugs her after Bush pressures her to hug Trump.

We have a choice. I can understand that, as a woman—or as a man who respects women—it can seem difficult to vote for Trump after hearing his comments. I will now urge you to remember Hillary’s words—including from Sunday’s presidential debate—as well as the words of the women she abused.

Gloves Are Off

We know Hillary has a penchant for relying on online videos to arrive at erroneous conclusions (think the Benghazi terror attack). During Sunday night’s debate, Hillary relied on the Washington Post’s viral video to assert Trump had done things he talked about in the video, such as initiating aggressive foreplay on women.

Anderson Cooper: Have you ever done those things?

Donald Trump: No, I have not. 

Hillary Clinton: What we all saw and heard [in the video released] on Friday was Donald talking about women. What he thinks about women. What he does to women. …this is who Donald Trump is.

Both O’Dell and Zucker issued public statements since the release of the video in which Trump makes sexually charged comments about them. Neither woman used her public statement to claim Trump physically touched her in an inappropriate manner. Nevertheless, based on no evidence, Hillary chose to slander Trump on national television and accuse him of sexual assault.

Not long ago, despite irrefutable evidence on a certain stained navy blue dress, Hillary stood by her husband and blamed his young female victim Monica Lewinsky after he sexually assaulted her. She is neither authentic nor an advocate of women.

“Bimbo,” “Trash,” “Looney Toon”

“She’s said the worst,” Kathleen Willey recently shared in a Breitbart News video about Hillary Clinton—ticking off terms she said Hillary called her and other women Bill Clinton sexually assaulted, including: “bimbo,” “trailer trash,” “looney toon,” “slut,” and “unworthy.” Among these women were Monica Lewinsky, Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey.

“She has been the main one to help cover this up. And go after us,” said Broaddrick. “She hasn’t tried to talk to any of us women. … We are women, aren’t we?” added Jones.

“A rape is not infidelity. [Sexual assaults] are crimes. … Other people would be in jail. … This is about a serial rapist: a predator, and his wife—who has enabled his behavior all of these years. She has taken personal betrayals and turned them into political opportunities,” said Willey.

Hillary vs. Melania

Melania Trump, Donald’s wife, has shown herself to be a woman with far more character than Hillary. A woman who would make a far superior First Lady than Hillary made. Unlike Hillary, who enabled her husband’s predatory sexual behavior, Melania immediately issued a statement condemning her husband’s words.

At the same time, Melania acknowledged that Trump’s words did not match his behavior and urged Americans to accept his apology, as she did. “The words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me. This does not represent the man that I know. He has the heart and mind of a leader. I hope people will accept his apology, as I have, and focus on the important issues facing our nation and the world.”

There’s an old saying: “Sticks and stones can hurt my bones, but words can never hurt me.” Bill Clinton’s actions ruined Lewinsky’s professional and personal life. His actions permanently scarred Jones, Willey and Broaddrick. But the only person Trump hurt with his words was himself.

No legitimate person has ever accused Trump of rape. Many legitimate claims of sexual assault have been brought against Bill Clinton—assaults Hillary enabled. Plus, Hillary’s socialist and pro-choice policies will make it very hard for women and men to make a livable wage—if they are fortunate enough to even be born.

Melania’s response to her husband’s language is different from Hillary’s response to her own husband’s misdeeds. Melania’s reaction was classy and forgiving of her husband, while never placing blame on the women who were the object of his unrefined words. Melania took the high road over the path of political gain.

Four women who were mistreated by Hillary and Bill Clinton—including Willey, Broaddrick and Jones—sat down with Trump a few hours before Sunday’s presidential debate. In a short video posted on Trump’s Facebook page, these women reinstated their support for Trump. They gave two main reasons: as women, they trust Trump, whereas they don’t trust Hillary—and they “believe Trump can lead us” and our country to greatness. Right on, sisters!

    As President Reagan said, “It’s not that liberals lie, it’s just that so much of what they know isn’t so.”

    Great piece Katie, thoughtful and intelligent – and I will share. Keep up the good work…

  3. Robert Deighton says:

    So refreshing to see a young person who gets it. The sanctimonious congressional candidates scurrying for cover have probably all lapped up “50 Shades.” Sure, he was wrong and said some stupid, boorish things. He apologized. Now on to the real issues; except the ESTABLISHMENT and MEDIA are committed to taking him down. However, there is hope. We have a plan designed for the Trump team-and you-to solve the $20 trillion debt crisis that affects Millennials. Really!

    I will start off and say I am not supporting Hillary either, but I will say that what was revealed about not only the way he talks about women but also the actions he takes are horrendous. What he was talking about is not normal “locker room” banter. He was talking about assault and women have come out and said he did that to them. Furthermore, in a radio interview with Howard Stern he also talked about how he would go backstage to oogle the naked women at his pageant.

      Thanks for your feedback, Jonathan. As stated in the column above, there are no proven cases of Trump sexually assaulting women. Many people can make claims. The two women – O’Dell and Zucker – who were the direct object of his comments in the video have made public statements and neither woman used her statement to mention Trump let alone accuse him of acting upon his words. We do, however, have credible and scientific evidence that Bill Clinton sexually assaulted women. Hillary enabled his behavior. The Clinton’s actions speak louder than Trump’s words.

      I welcome your post to share with others, Katie Kieffer 🙂
      What Trump said in private, although sad, is nothing compared to what the Clintons have done.
