Even after talking to Bill O’Reilly, Trump still will shun GOP/FoxNews/GOOGLE Debate tonight

Jonathan Easley, TheHill.com, reports: “Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Wednesday night lashed out at Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly in his first appearance on the network since he announced plans to boycott the next GOP debate. He also refused to reconsider his decision to sit out the network’s Thursday night debate — the last before the Iowa caucuses in five days — and said he’d move forward with his own competing event to raise money for wounded veterans.”

“Speaking on “The O’Reilly Factor,” Trump continued his long-running feud with Kelly, who he has been criticizing ever since she challenged him on his derision of women at the first GOP debate, in August. “I have zero respect for Megyn Kelly,” Trump said. “I don’t think she’s good at what she does and I think she’s highly overrated. And, frankly, she’s a moderator; I thought her question last time was ridiculous.”

“Kelly is also set to moderate Thursday night’s debate on Fox News.”

My Take

Trump is misreading the political tea leaves of the Presidential campaign.

Data shows that women will be the dominant group of voters in Election 2016 in both the GOP and Democratic Primary Elections, and in the General Election.

To single out Megyn Kelly in this fashion can be perceived by mainstream political media to demonstrate that there is a serious character flaw in Trump with respect to women.

The move could cost Trump the GOP nomination for President.

RAPE: DR. RO KNOWS: Here We Go Again-Todd Akin, Another Conservative Defining For Us What Our Bodies Can Do During What He Calls “A Legitimate Rape!”

Congressman Todd Akin is seeking election to the U. S. Senate in this year’s most  competitive Senate race in  Missouri. 

Perhaps the biggest mistake he made was unveiling his level of idiocy and lack of knowledge regarding a woman’s anatomy while having a wife and two daughters. 

What qualifies him is not medicine, but his emphatic truism, which he claims is from doctors, that if it is a ‘legitimate rape’ we have within our bodies ways which will “shut the whole thing down.” He also believes that if it does not shut down while the rape is in progress, and the woman is impregnated, that there should be some punishment for the rapist, and not the child.                                                               

Ladies with some sanity and sense of morality, let’s do a reality check for Akin:  as women we do not and never will have this automatic ‘shut down button’ in our brain to stop a pregnancy while being raped.

The U. S. Senate does not need conservative, white male politicians like Akin making health care decisions for women.  That decision making belong to us.

Instead of  uttering preposterous mandates, Akin and other like minded politicians should acknowledge us, hear us, and join us to develop good health care practices and fully funded programs for women, their children, and their families.
