The Pot Calling the Kettle Black

One really has to hand it over to the Republicans when it comes to and hypocrisy as now it is being speculated that Donald Trump intends to expose and exploit Bill Clinton’s sex scandals to humiliate Hillary Clinton and to boost his falling ratings in the next debate on October 9.

In the first debate, the Donald had contemplated to bring up the subject but he was civil and courteous enough to not to do it as Chelsea Clinton was sitting with Bill in the front row.

So the question is what made him change his mind or rather who advised him to go for it. It was long foretold towards the near of the elections, the contest would get, nastier, sleazier and uglier and it seems we are getting there.

Donald Trump does not respect women as Hillary pointed out in the first debate referencing out, The latin model Alicia Machado who won the 1996 Miss Universe contest of which Trump was one of the organizers.

He later referred to her as Miss Piggy and Miss Housekeeping keeping her Latina background in mind as she was from Venezuela.

Hillary really took the offensive and branded Trump as a sexist which worked with women voters.

Women are the key in the November elections and Trump knows it. It is for this reason that Trump’s advisors are calling to ban Hillary.

What good will it fo if he brings up the past, Will Hillary cringe and feels ashamed, well for this scribe I think not. On the contrary, Hillary will hit back at Trump.

The question is does Trump have the credentials to cast the first stone for after all the saying goes “He who is without sin shall cast the first stone.”

Donald Trump first marriage broke up due to a torrid affair which was the sensation of tabloids at the time. There are many who say that he has no right to wag his finger at Hillary.

For Trump the situation is desperate and he and his cronies are clutching at straws to help him from drowning, Still, the Trump camp smacking of hypocrisy has urged its surrogates have dates to chat about Monica Lewinsky, Gennifer Flowers, and Paula Jones.

The world may be shocked at Trump’s antics but it is not surprising to those who know Trump and his cronies inside out.

Almost all of Trump’s advisors and friends have a long rap sheet of sexual impropriety, as Trump has recruited a pasty collection of older males, mostly with a long rap sheet of marital infidelities, sex scandals.

Let us briefly go over some of the records of Trump’s sidekicks.

Trump allies will be quick to point out that, even as the candidate is again beset by sexism charges, two of his most influential aides are women. Kellyanne Conway was brought on to manage the campaign this summer and daughter Ivanka, alongside husband Jared Kushner, is widely reported to be one of the few people that truly has his ear.

But the broader campaign firmament is less diverse. Here’s a look at the Trump boys’ club and its unsettling record:

Steve Bannon

Bannon’s has been hired as CEO of Trump’s campaign leaving his post as head honcho at Breitbart News operation, to steady what was then a rapidly sinking ship.

It may be surprising to many that in 1996 he was charged misdemeanor domestic violence, battery, and dissuading a witness involving his then-wife. Charges were dropped but the stigma remains.

Bannon, after their divorce, had objected to a potential school for their daughters because, as she put it in court documents, he “didn’t want the girls going to school with Jews.”

Roger Ailes

He has fallen from grace in his love or rather lust for women, to put more strongly insatiable lust for women. He was the CEO of Fox T.V who quit due to sex many sex scandals and more which are coming out.

Ailes is now advising Trump on his campaign and it is no surprise that scandals are becoming the theme subject.

Multiple women have now come forward, some with lawsuits, alleging sexual misconduct — a number of them in harrowing first-person accounts provided to New York Magazine and other outlets. Ailes has denied the harassment allegations against him, but earlier this month, 21st Century Fox reached a $20 million settlement with former anchor Gretchen Carlson and agreed to a “handful” of other deals with women whose identities were not revealed.

Ailes’ role going forward is a bit of a mystery, but his presence certainly casts a shadow on any effort by the campaign to make inroads with skeptical women.

Newt Gingrich

Former speaker of the US House of Representatives Newt Gingrich is also tainted as far as women are concerned.

Speaking on the Miss Universe matter Gingrich said that she should not have lost 60 pounds for one of the conditions of retaining the crowd was not to gain weight.

Like Trump, Bannon, Ailes and former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Gingrich has been married multiple times a classic example of serial husbands. He has admitted to cheating on his first and second wives — and that he was engaged in an affair while leading impeachment proceedings against then-President Bill Clinton.

Rudy Giuliani — also on his third marriage

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani introduces Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump during a campaign event at Trask Coliseum on August 9, 2016, in Wilmington, North Carolina.

Giuliani, currently on his third marriage, is a hardcore republican and former NewYork Mayor who has lashed out at Lester Holt in the first debate for not being impartial and-and now at Hillary Clinton for not dumping husband Bill.

“She didn’t just stand by (Bill Clinton), she attacked Monica Lewinsky, and after being married to Bill Clinton for 20 years, if you didn’t know the moment Monica Lewinsky said Bill Clinton violated her and was telling the truth — then you’re too stupid to be president,” he told a reporter from Elite Daily after the debate.

Giuliani’s second marriage, to Donna Hanover, came to a very public and nasty end back in 2001, as the still-married mayor stepped out publicly with girlfriend Judith Nathan — often bringing her to the mayor’s residence at Gracie Mansion. When Hanover protested, Giuliani lawyer Raoul Felder told reporters his client’s wife was “howling like a stuck pig” in her request to ban Nathan from the home.

Michael Cohen

Another one of Trump’s advisors who says you can’t rape your wife when it is illegal in all 50 states to rape your spouse.

He said it in an interview with the Daily Beast last year that “you cannot rape your spouse.”

The comment came in response to a question about allegations, made in a deposition during their divorce proceedings and revealed in a 1993 book, that Trump had raped his first wife, Ivana, in 1989. Trump has denied it and Ivana subsequently backed off the claim, saying she felt “violated” but did not want her words taken “in a literal or criminal sense.”

Trump distanced himself from Cohen’s remark and the campaign said he was not affiliated with the political operation, despite his having made repeated media appearances as a surrogate.

Chris Christie -In the aftermath of Trump’s Monday night debate meltdown, campaign advisers have discussed and offered Chris Christie the governor of New Jersey a more important role in the campaign.

The New Jersey governor has been one of the few close aides to offer Trump what a source described as a “brutally honest” assessment of his performance in New York.

Christie is already doing double duty as the chairman of Trump’s transition team — triple duty if you include fending off accusations that he misled the public about his knowledge of the Bridgegate scandal.

Well, there you have it. With such a coterie of advisors of womanizers who consider women as bimbos. Sex machines and what not it is not surprising that they are advising Trump to bait Hillary on Bill’s scandals.

Hillary is no fool, she will be on her guard, perhaps Chelsea will not attend so Donald can not have his day.

It is a very sad feature to see that a Presidential nominee would stoop so low and go to such lengths to claim the white house

To many, it seems all is fair in politics but this sort of charade does not bode well for the image of the United States.

Well, what of Bill Clinton what will he have to say his past is brought out to the public, will he cower and shy away or will he be defiant and hit back. He had as many may recall asked for forgiveness from his family, the nation, and the senate did not impeach him on that particular point.

The World is looking forward to October 9, for it will be a fiery, sleazy and scandalous debate if Trump and his advisors are to be believed so brace yourself, folks.
