Can we trash Trump for being married to a woman who puts up with him?

I mean, if we can go after Hillary for "enabling" her husband's bad behavior . . .

3. All she has to do is love her own dignity more than closets of shoes

and buckets of money.

She's in her own personal Supermax, of her own making.

4. I'm gonna have to say

Two wrongs don't make a right.

So, no. Women should never be blamed for the indiscretions of their husbands, or for forgiving them.

11. Not suggesting we blame HER. Blame HIM . . .

If staying with a man who engages in bad behavior is a horrible thing, staying with a woman who does such a horrible thing is a horrible thing, isn't it?

7. No.

I don't believe in attacking spouses or blood relatives for a nominee's disgusting behavior.

That said, I do hold a nominee's family members responsible for their own behavior, but it would take a lot for anyone in the extended Trump family to behave as badly as D.T. The speech today alone should go down in history as one of the most appallingly paranoid, manipulative, rage-filled, and anti-democratic in the modern era. May we never have another major party candidate like this, and may history treat this one precisely as he deserves.

12. You do realize I'm being facetious, right?

To point out the absurdity of the spousal blame game . . .

14. I get it, but he had at least one wife who fought for her marriage after learning he cheated, and

 

Another that may have cheated on him, and now the third. I think the lesson is we can't judge how someone will react to being cheated on, and it's never their fault or our business.
