‘Apples to apples’: Advocate claims Trump calling woman the ‘c-word’ is like Hillary’s ‘deplorables’

An advocate for GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump spent her time on MSNBC Saturday morning attempting to spin the avalanche of misogyny that pours out of Donald Trump’s mouth with Hillary Clinton more polished comments, calling them “apples to apples” Along the way, she said Trump calling a reporter the “c-word” was no different than Clinton’s “basket of deplorables” comment.

Appearing on AM Joy, Latinas for Trump founder Ileana Garcia seemed ill -prepared to discuss Trump’s ongoing problems with both women and the Latino community and attempted to dismiss the ongoing controversy overt the fat- and slut-shaming of former Miss Universe Alicia Machado.

Explaining that she is more interested in economic issues, Garcia said, “I try to cut through the fat and go straight to it, he’s obviously a very transparent person. He has vulnerable moments, he’s not the most politically correct person. It’s not that I’m justifying him, I’m explaining to you how I feel as I watch it.”

Host Reid brought her back to Trump talking about women, asking her if she was a parent and if she “felt comfortable” with Trump comments about women.

1. The "funny" thing about this is that she's just proving Hillary's point.

Just another deplorable person rooting for Trump.

2. Obviously it's not the same if you have to refer to it as "the c word"

I don't hear anyone referring to deplorables as "the d word".

6. As a man I find the use of the c-word offensive and derogatory

Deplorable is an opinion whereas the c-word is not!

8. If Garcia can't see the difference between objectifying women & denigrating them solely for their


gender -- from making a judgement call as to Trump's followers attitudes, beliefs and behaviors (things held to be the result of decisions people make) -- as not being defensible, she is apparently not aware of the whole concept of being responsible for your behavior and beliefs and that some behaviors and beliefs, such as racism and sexism, are properly considered reprehensible and inconsistent with the founding principles of this nation. One would hope that someone running for the President of this country would not espouse or condone racism or sexism.

9. She had a very sly ploy - kept saying

I'm being selfish and just thinking what policies will be better for me. Not focused on what stuff they say.

Joe Conason said you should read the taxes plans because his is not better for you. Then she got a little feistier but could not explain why policies better better.

11. Couldn't be 'apples to apples.' 'Deplorable' is too kind.
