Trump was 'near-sadistic' in phone calls with female world leaders, according to CNN report

(Business Insider via msn) Trump was 'near-sadistic' in phone calls with female world leaders, according to CNN report on classified calls

President Donald Trump's freewheeling and unprepared approach to phone calls with world leaders tended to turn ugly if the recipient was a woman, according to a new CNN report.

Trump was "near-sadistic" when speaking to leaders like former British Prime Minister Theresa May and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, calling them "stupid" and "a fool," according to longtime Washington Post reporter of Watergate fame Carl Bernstein, who reported the story for CNN.

One source called Trump's calls with May "humiliating and bullying," while Merkel reportedly took Trump's antics "like water off a duck's back."

"He'd get agitated about something with Theresa May, then he'd get nasty with her on the phone call," One source told CNN. "It's the same interaction in every setting ó coronavirus or Brexit ó with just no filter applied."

President Donald Trump was chummy with autocratic male world leaders in phone calls, but turned "near-sadistic" when he was speaking to women in the same positions, according to a new report from Carl Bernstein for CNN.

52. nope. Repuiblican approval is still up around 75-80.

And his overall approval rating (even in this past month of misery) is hovering around 50%. His disapproval rating is growing .. but only by bits and pieces. Numbers have mostly been like a rock -- through 3.5 years.

44. No I disagree...

I hold that 40% of Americans are not misogynists. That is a mis-characterization of the population and not a useful working number. The number of Trump supporters is far less than 40% when you consider the non-voting segment. In addition, the majority of Trump supporters are just brainwashed fools, not misogynists. Yes, there are misogynists in his camp, he is one of them. But the majority are just, well to put it nicely, idiots.

the small minded, petty, vindictive vulgarian .. is the PROGRAM, not a feature.
I have to keep reminding people that the party could have easily (and a lot more rationally) picked a Rubio, a Cruz, a Bush, a Walker, a Jindal -- and the list goes on and on. The Rs chose Trump in a runaway. And it wasn't because he was such a swell guy, or so deeply respected. He was chosen because he's an ass**le.

Most are idiots too.

And you are incorrect about the 40%. It's from 538. They break out likely voters, all voters and all adults. It's 40% of all adults. Non-voters and voters. Slightly more than 40%, actually.

No... we are talking about shocked and surprised that this buffoon who lives in the White House is acting exactly like we would expect him to toward women world leaders.

No... we are talking about this instead of talking about the fact that he either was or should have been informed about his lover Putin paying to kill American troops in Afghanistan.

is to riff on how "dumb" and lacking in sense the highly educated are. I can't tell how many times I've listened to Joe Sixpack recount a story about how he had to use real world experience and good ol fashioned common sense to save some hopelessly out-of-touch egghead from himself.

It's one of the ways the Trump set deal with their insecurities.

48. He's terrified of powerful women. Just like any weak misogynistic male out there.

Strong women are scary because we threaten their ability to feel entitled by their male privilege. Put a strong woman in power and the misogynist are peeing their pants and ranting like lunatics about her in a diminutive way. Trump is thousands of miles from an exception here. He's literally their poster boy!

When any woman shared his Power level he, of course, tried to go Alpha male on them out of a weak, knee jerk reaction to make him still feel manly. He's just a scared, weak little man beating his chest when faced with a perceived threat from powerful, scary woman.
