Former Donald Trump Executive: 'He's a Supreme Sexist' The Daily Beast
“I think he’s a supreme sexist,” 18-year-Trump executive Barbara Res tells The Daily Beast. Res won't call call Trump a misogynist, but she freely uses another M-word 'megalomaniac' to describe her former boss.
“He’s terribly sexist. He’s a womanizer for sure,” she said. “He hired me for a specific reason: Because I was really good. And he told me, and he believed this, that women had to work harder and be smarter and were willing to work harder than men, and that’s what he wanted, and he had a couple of women working for him… ‘Men are better than women,’ he said, ‘but a good woman is better than 10 men.’ I think he thought I would take it as a compliment, and I think it was intended as a compliment.”
Res has been telling her story—to The Daily Beast, The New York Times, the New York Daily News, and on Twitter—since Trump announced his candidacy in June 2015. She is quick witted and insightful, and her words provide nuance and honesty in a campaign that has lacked both. After the publication Friday, by The Washington Post, of a tape in which Trump could be heard boasting about sexually assaulting women—“grab them by the pussy,” he said—I spoke with Res to learn how a woman who once knew him well interpreted the remarks that have caused his campaign to implode.
Trump's Big Supporter Compares Him to Silverback Gorilla
Does Trump Have A Penis Problem?
If Donald Trump is really a silverback gorilla -- as supporter Mr. Brexit UK politico Nigel Farage asserts, then Donald Trump has a small penis and relies on his hulking bulk to dominate women.
Personally, I'm a big fan of bonobos social structure. Females run things and there is a lot of sexual activity of every persuasion. All are happy. Since Donald Trump referenced the alleged magnitude of his penis in the primary debates, I've become convinced that he is just normally endowed -- or less. Donald Trump insists that everything about him is the biggest and best ever. So having a regular guy-size penis would be too much for Trump to handle.
Posting just now that the UK's Nigel Farage spoke to reporters in the spin room Sunday night, comparing Donald Trump to a silverback gorilla who dominated Hillary Clinton during the debate, I decided to investigate. As the big alpha male -- Farage's words -- invading her space by standing right behind her, breathing down her neck when she spoke directly to the audience, Trump was indeed behaving like a silverback gorilla.
Low and behold, the silverback gorilla has the smallest penis of all, writes Carole Jahme. And he relies not on the size of his penis but strength and girth to dominate the females. Read on. ~ Anne
"The impressive 200kg (400lb) silverback gorilla does have the smallest penis and testes of all male apes, but his massive canines and biceps and his controlling, jealous temper allow him to intimidate and fight off potential competitors."
Trump's Misogyny Is Dangerous, Not a Distraction Elle.com
Whether a US Presidential candidate believes that women have a right to bodily autonomy and whether he admits to having violated that right because it comes with the trappings of male privilege and celebrity status is a fundamental issue to America's female voters.

Clinton's Greatest Debate Accomplishment Was Ignoring Trump As He Lurks Behind Her Slate
During Clinton’s time, Trump wandered around the stage like a bored child at a wedding. He paced back and forth like a patriarch impatiently allowing a woman to speak but thinking better of it. He hovered a few feet behind her like a psycho killer about to burst through a glass window in a horror movie. This move did not go over so well on social media.

How Rémy Martin Ensures Their Storied Cognac Stays on Top Observer
We met Sonya Sicaire, who’s been managing the 7.5-acre vineyard in the rolling hills of Cognac almost entirely on her own for 16 years, since she inherited it from her grandfather. Like many of the 1,000 external growers Rémy Martin sources from, Sicaire does everything in the process of making great cognac from pruning and harvesting to repairing her own equipment by hand.
“I’m very proud to follow the traces of my family,” Sicaire said. “It’s hard work, and you need to observe each time. People think there’s nothing to do in vineyards because it’s green and quiet, but while the vines are independent and can grow themselves, I’m here to make the grapes good.”

One of Mexico City's Hottest Dining Trends? Eating Insects Vogue.com
Intrepid Travel’s Real Food Adventure-Mexico local guide Ubish Yaren, says that the eating of insects dates back to pre-Hispanic times. “Why do you start eating insects or cactus or things with spines? Because of need,” says Yaren. “But now, insects are one of the most expensive ingredients in Mexican cuisine.” The commitment to insects ties in with the worldwide eat local trend and the artisan emphasis on heritage items. Mexico City’s dining scene elevates the trend of celebrating simple ingredients beyond vegetables to insects.

That Time Feminists Descended on the Miss America Pageant Vogue.com
Forty-eight years ago this week, a few hundred women arrived on the Atlantic City boardwalk and staged the infamous bra-burning protest. (Men were allowed to drive them to the event, but not to participate: “Male chauvinist-reactionaries on this issue had best stay away, nor are male liberals welcome in the demonstrations. But sympathetic men can donate money as well as cars and drivers,” the organizers instructed.)
As it turns out, no underwear was actually burned. A giant trash can was erected on the boardwalk into which were tossed mops, pots, copies of women’s magazines andPlayboy, false eyelashes, high heels, hair rollers, cosmetics, and, of course, girdles, and bras, and there were erroneous reports in the press that this ignominious heap, this hot mess, was set ablaze. But fire or no fire, this group of activists—some with nerves of steel managed to get inside the hall and unfurl a bedsheet from the balcony that read Women’s Liberation before getting thrown out—brought the issue of women’s rights to riveting attention across the country.
