Diversion is a tool Trump uses again & again. Example: Melania versus Jackie Kennedy

I was sent a picture on the Melania versus Jackie Kennedy topic. It made me laugh because there were many presidents wives looking proper in pictures with a pic of a naked Melania alongside them and it was titled ' One of these things is not like the other'. In all honesty I retweeted it because it did make me laugh. Then later I realized I contributed to slut shaming and that goes against my core beliefs. I stooped
Well, I'm not writing this to confess. I'd like to say that he is desperate to get us wasting our energy focusing on stupid stuff like slut shaming his wife ( & yes the creep threw her right under the bus knowing he was doing that). Every since the shit hit the fan for him he has been pulling out all the stops to divert the attention off his wrong doings. Think about it. Suddenly Ivanka wants to talk about women to a magazine. Suddenly Kim Kardashian comes to meet with him and there's a huge press announcement. All of this crap is a deflection. I'm disappointed I wasted time tweeting on that while immigrant babies and children are being abused by our system in wire cages. I've decided to stick to what matters until that creep is out of the White House.
I probably rambled and babbled , but those are my thoughts after being up all night

2. Meh.. I have no problem with artistic nudity...

Hers was commercial and crass as it comes.

The former (artistic) bespeaks class; the latter does not and nothing in her bearing, behavior, contributions do, either.

I'm as feminist as one comes, but I won't denounce those who see a difference. That's not "slut-shaming"

I posted this earlier and I make no apologies for my views or doing so:

You want a fully clothed example of her total lack of class? Here's one of the best.



She is a boor and I don't care who doesn't like that I say so or how.

5. My post wasn't aimed at you or anyone else here at DU

I really haven't seen what you posted at all & wasn't speaking about you or anyone else here. I was talking about my own feelings and perceptions on the subject which may differ from yours & that's okay. It wasn't a judgement on what you say on here. I'm not even familiar with what you say. I'm really really NOT a fan of Melania in any way . lol Anyway, we don't have the same views about what slut shaming is , but hey I'm not judging ya

7. Apparently you are, and everyone else who does not share your view

When you stake a (false) moral high ground, that is the risk.

8. I'm moving on

If you want to feel upset and angry feel free, but I'm not arguing. I don't like to argue when it's not necessary. I especially don't like to argue with democrats when there are so many republicans to choose from

9. "Hers was commercial and crass as it comes."

Precisely! IMO, her soft porn shots are not attractive in any way - they are harsh, cold, almost clinical, and her perpetual scowl is most uninviting.

She is as crass, coarse, crude and common as her crass, coarse, crude and common husband. Vulgar to the core.

3. Only in Repug Bizzaroworld could someone like

Melania be first lady. Remember the outrage and vapors from the ReichWing when Michelle wore a sleeveless dress?
