Voice Shaking, Michelle Obama Calls Trump Comments on Women 'Intolerable' New York Times
Speaking in a deeply personal, deliberate but shaking voice, America's First Lady addressed the nation on Thursday, issuing a call to action against Donald Trump specifically for his actions, his vulgarity and lacking in conscience words about women.
“This is not normal. This is not politics as usual,” Mrs. Obama said in a 25-minute speech here during which her voice at times quavered with emotion. “This is disgraceful, it is intolerable, and it doesn’t matter what party you belong to,” she added. “No woman deserves to be treated this way — none of us deserves this kind of abuse.”
In remarks that were among the most outspoken by a first lady in modern history, Mrs. Obama, who has mostly avoided the political limelight, positioned herself at the center of a campaign she characterized as having devolved into “madness.” She implored voters to “stand up and say enough is enough.”
Floodgates of Sexual Aggression Claims Open Against Donald Trump As Women's Stories Substantiate Trump's Own Words AOC Hillary Clinton News
The final weeks of America's 2016 presidential election present a fast ride in which his "shackles have been taken off." Over the years I've referenced my own love for driving sports cars with a firm grasp of driving a stick. As millions of Americans -- and especially American women have tweeted in the last week, our memories of sexual abuse, including firmly delivered sexual aggression and rape were unleashed listening to Donald Trump's Billy Bush video released last Friday by The Washington Post.
Women were shocked when Donald Trump brought the recently fired, former head of FOX News Roger Ailes into his inner campaign circle.
Over the past week, Donald Trump's words and actions sickened America's women as we reflected on the denials in our own lives. I shared details of my own stories years ago on Anne of Carversville.
Last night all hell broke loose in the world of women and Donald Trump. A series of stories broke over the morning into evening.

Alex Jones Says Hillary Clinton and Obama Are Real Demons Huffington Post
Radio host and Donald Trump supporter Alex Jones broadcasts the Biblical-based-venom that Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama reside in Hell.
On Monday, Jones, host of his eponymous show on the Genesis Communications Network, said the two were literally the devil, according to Media Matters.
He called Clinton a “psychopathic demon”, as the patriarchy-embracing Jones sought to discredit Clinton further with his listeners.
“I’m sure of that, and people around her say she’s so dark now, and so evil, and so possessed that they are having nightmares, they’re freaking out,” Jones ranted, claiming that both Clinton and Obama smell of evil and sulfur. His evidence? A fly landed on Hillary during the second debate.
Something smells, all right. The Trumpsters are taking the 2016 presidential election so deeply into the gutter that it will take decades for America to recover. And perhaps we never will recover.
America's Therapists Are Worried About Trump's Effect on Your Mental Health Politico
It was a recent trip to Austria, where neo--fascist Norbert Hofer was then leading in the presidential election, that inspired University of Minnesota psychologist William J. Doherty’s interest in Donald Trump and his potential effect on the American psyche. Note that Hofer was defeated narrowly by Green Party candidate Alexander Van der Bellen at the end of May. Doherty first thought to study how psychiatrists responded in 1930s Austria and Germany—some had collaborated with the Nazis, others remained silent—before turning his attention to the 2016 United States presidential election.
From Doherty's perspective, Trump echoes of the cults of personality long wielded by history's strongmen. In an age of social media, the cult of Trump knows few bounds, as Donald spews fear and anger 24 hours a day. The source of Trump's vile propaganda maintains a laser focus on the 'other', as he humiliates opponents, and sows distrust in the media and entire political system. Trump thrives on projecting an exaggerated masculinity, professing to idealize and honor women while demeaning them as having blood running out of their eyes, being fat or being so irresistible that Trump flatters himself that he can use sexual force on them because (metaphorically) "they really want it": For all these reasons, Doherty sees Trump as a threat not just to the American people but to our democratic traditions and institutions. And he seeks to undermine client-patient therapeutic relationships with the insane undercurrent that only Trump the strongman can make change happen.
Trump Is A Supreme Sexist
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.

Neil deMause: Brooklyn is dead; long live Brooklyn NY Daily News
Several interlocking factors are creating a New Brooklyn. The number of households earning more than $200,000 a year almost doubled between 2005 and 2012. The rebirth of Brooklyn is great but also troubling as -- once again -- gentrification moves a local population out of the neighborhood with rising housing costs.
In a sad note of irony, high-income young whites and people of color who want to live in integrated communities, known for their cultural vibrancy, are eliminating that possibility with their ability to pay soaring rents.

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.
