Is it safe to assume that all Americans by now have read or at least heard about the piece in the Guardian referencing President Trump's mushroom-shaped tiny penis?
Did they go too far? Whether you support Trump or not, do you think it was appropriate for them to post this article? Why or why not?
I hadn't heard until now. I thought she made a pretty good case for the story. No one has ever lowered the bar like the pussy-grabber-in-chief. I especially liked:
Much has been written about Daniels’s refusal to be shamed. But what is really remarkable about her is how she’s turned the whole narrative around. Not only will she not be humiliated – she will humiliate him. And why not, damn it? She wasn’t the married one. She is not the one with the power to ruin women’s lives by banning global abortion funding and defunding Planned Parenthood while having bragged in the past how, when you’re a star, you can grab women “by the pussy”. He is. While we may well live in a post-shame era, Daniels knows how to hurt Trump. And given how much Trump is hurting women, I think this is one instance in which we can indulge in some guiltless body-shaming. Go get him, Stormy.
This is what I hate about PC. Things like this are acceptable to print but only about right wing figures like Trump or Pauline Hanson in Australia. They do receive very personal attacks which are all giggles on the left leaning types.
But use the same language against an icon of the left and holy shit! You are accused of being scum of the Earth. Big dou me standard.
Eg if this was about Obama's mushroom dick then it would be racist etc etc and people would be losing their minds.
All for calling Trump a sleazy turd, but should be able to use the same language for all.
Seems if targeting the right then it's open season but when targeting the left must be PC, this is what's socially acceptable.
he can only sue them if it's not true. he cannot sue them for invasion of privacy because he is a public figure. but to prove it's not true he would have to unveil his junk.
did they go too far, regardless of legal status? i don't know. is anyone actually forced to read the guardian?
